Barcelona vs Viktoria match stats
Barcelona have only lost their opening game of a Champions League campaign in one of their last 23 appearances (which also includes 17 wins and five draws), however that defeat did come in their opening game last term (0-3 v Bayern Munich at the Camp Nou).
Robert Lewandowski has scored more goals than any other player in the Champions League across the last three seasons (33 goals in 26 games). Should he score in this game, he’d be only the third player to score for both Barcelona and Bayern Munich in the competition, after Mark van Bommel and Philippe Coutinho.
Lewandowski also netted nine goals in five home appearances for Bayern Munich in the Champions League last season – only two players have ever scored more home goals in a single campaign in the competition (11 – Cristiano Ronaldo in 2015/16 and Mario Gomez in 2011/12).
Viktoria Plzeň have only won one of their eight previous games against Spanish opposition in European competition (which includes one draw and six losses), while that lone victory came in the Europa League against Atlético Madrid in 2012/13.
They’ve lost all four games that have taken place in the Champions League by an aggregate score of 13-1.This will be also be Viktoria Plzeň’s first game in the Champions League since December 2018, in a 2-1 win over Roma. The Czech side have won their last two games in the competition, which is as many victories as they recorded in their first 16 attempts (two wins, three draws and 11 losses).
Viktoria forward Tomás Chory was directly involved in four goals in six appearances in this season’s Champions League qualifying stage (two goals and two assists), more than any other Plzeň player.
This will be the third meeting between Barcelona and Viktoria Plzeň in European competition, with the Catalan side beating them 2-0 (home) and 4-0 (away) in the Champions League group stage in 2011/12. Across those meetings, Barcelona averaged 76% possession, attempted 36 shots (16 on target) and only faced four attempts in return (one on target).
