[UEFA Champions League] FC Barcelona - Sporting Lisbon 6.12 [Copy Link]

FC Barcelona: The Spaniards are already guaranteed group profit ( Recent Form: W D D W D )
For FC Barcelona the loot is already inside. After the scoreless draw of two weeks ago, a visit to Juventus, the Spaniards can no longer be traced by the competition and as expected they win the group win in group D. The Blaugrana can play football for their own public on Tuesday evening, although they will of course want to meet their sporting duty. The profit premium is, of course, only a change for the Catalans, but they do care a lot about maintaining an impressive series. FC Barcelona has been unbeaten in the Champions League in its own Camp Nou since May 2013. No less than 21 of the 23 home matches in European million ball were won. Nevertheless, chances are that FC Barcelona will rotate in its closing group match. This week, no less than seven players from Barcelona B joined the training of the A-selection. Two weeks ago, when visiting Juventus, trainer Ernesto Valverde kept his star Lionel Messi outside the basic eleven. So there is a chance that he will put Messi on the bench again with a view to Villarreal-out next weekend, although the Argentinian is someone who prefers not to miss a minute. Players like Jordi Alba, Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, Luis Suarez, Gerard Pique and Sergio Busquets could also stay on the sidelines. Andres Iniesta and Samuel Umtiti got injured against Celta de Vigo (2-2) this weekend and will therefore have to go missing anyway. The loss of Samuel Umtiti in particular is a major loss, as the Frenchman is one of the best defenders on the Spanish fields this season.

Sporting CP: The Portuguese must win ( Recent Form: D W W W W )
Sporting CP stands for a monster run. The Portuguese are currently in third place in Group D with seven points. The score at number two Juventus is only a point, but in case of a tie, the club from Lisbon would draw the short straw on the basis of a poorer mutual result. . The visitors have to win at Camp Nou anyway, and at the same time hope that Juventus will make a mistake on Greek soil against the already eliminated Olympiacos. The chance that Sporting CP knows how to qualify for the knockout phase of the Champions League is small, but the Portuguese have not given up hope. More than 3,000 Sporting CP fans will be present at the Camp Nou on Tuesday evening. Their hope is mainly based on Bas Dost, who also shoots sharply this season. The Dutch striker was a total of fourteen times accurate this season, nine of which in his last eight official matches. Last weekend he shot Os Leoes from eleven meters past Belenenses (1-0), so they now together with FC Porto take the lead in the Portuguese Primeira Liga. In the group stage of the Champions League, however, Dost is still dry, although Tuesday night would obviously be a good time to change that. "It's going to be difficult," trainer Jorge Jesus knows. 'However, if Messi does not play, we may dream of a good result. We are going full for victory. "

After all, even if FC Barcelona is actually going to rotate, I think the chances of a stunt from Sporting CP are very small. The Spaniards have grown enormously since the appointment of Valverde, especially in defensive terms, and seldom give away presents.
