The group stage of the Champions League 2018/2019 finally starts again. These two teams are in group B, together with Inter and Tottenham.
PSV Eindhoven faces Barcelona on the first match of the group stage of the 2018/2019 Champions League: the Dutch champions are unbeaten in the last games against Barcelona (played in 1997), although in this case the odds are almost totally on the side of the Catalans. Barcelona start this Champions League as the Liga title holder and aim for at least the arrival in the semi-finals. This match therefore presents one of the best teams in the world that plays in front of its audience: Messi and Suarez are in great shape and find themselves wonderfully. Barca also comes from a 1-2 comeback win against Real Sociedad
PSV instead has a new manager this season after Phillip Cocu, now at Fenerbahce, has been replaced by another former Dutch midfielder, Mark van Bommel, who has started the new season very well. The Dutch are scoring many goals with Van Bommel: wins for 0-7 and 6-1 in the last two rounds of the season. The team is first in the standings and is back from five consecutive victories. PSV will take the field with the usual 4-3-3.
Do you think Barça can win this one???
