For the second season in a row Barcelona have failed to qualify from the Champions League groups. A 3-0 defeat to Bayern Munich last week confirmed Europa League relegation for Xavi’s men, meaning they enter this concluding matchday of the Champions League without jeopardy — with Group C basement boys Viktoria Plzen unable to catch them.

The Catalan giants started their European journey in emphatic fashion, smashing Viktoria Plzen 5-1 in their curtain-raiser, but four successive matches without triumph against group-topping Bayern and qualified Inter has seen their status in the continent’s premier tournament fade. They will now be jostling with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United for a chance at Europa League glory.

Viktoria Plzen v Barcelona: Match Stats

Despite this largely being a dead rubber given the set-in-stone permutations, Xavi will be determined to leave the competition with a bang. In Ousmane Dembele, he has a player capable of the creative extraordinary on his day; the Frenchman has made more progressive carries of 10+ metres than any other player in the Champions League this season (39), while no player has created more chances after a carry than him (six).

Robert Lewandowski will also be champing at the bit to persuade Xavi to give him a starting berth. The prolific Pole has scored 37 goals in 53 away games in the Champions League. If he scores against Viktoria Plzen, then he will overtake Karim Benzema (37) as the outright third top scorer away from home in the competition’s history, coming in just behind Cristiano Ronaldo (63) and Lionel Messi (49).

Viktoria Plzen v Barcelona: Team news

Sergio Busquets will be unavailable for Xavi through suspension, opening the door for the likes of Franck Kessie or Frenkie de Jong to slot in at the base of Barca’s midfield trident. Eric Garcia and Jules Kounde are both also set to sit this one out after coming off inured in the weekend’s win over Valencia. This game has also come too soon for convalescing duo Andreas Christensen and Memphis Depay, who are nearing returns to full fitness, but are not quite there just yet. The physio room is completed by longer-term absentees Ronald Araujo and Sergi Roberto.
