- Barcelona have won five of their last eight matches in the Champions League.
- The Catalan side have conceded just two goals in four games this season.
- Ten of Barcelona’s last 13 victories have been to nil.
Giant killing unlikely at Camp Nou
Ronald Koeman may have endured a turbulent start to life as Barcelona manager, but the Dutchman should have little to fear on Tuesday as they head into Champions League matchday one as huge favourites against Hungarian minnows Ferencvarosi.
The visitors are making their first group stage appearance in the competition since 1995 and, while impressive against Molde, Dinamo Zgreb and Celtic in the qualifying rounds, a trip to the Camp Nou represents a huge step up in quality.
Barcelona have won 12 of their last 15 competitive home games and, while that humiliation against Bayern Munich will still be a fresh wound, they have still won five of their last eight Champions League ties.
Both of their victories this season have been to nil and they have conceded just two goals in four games so far, while ten of their last 13 competitive wins have seen them shut the opposition out.
Given the gulf in quality between these teams backing Barcelona to win to nil looks solid, and with Ferencvarosi conceding three in their last Champions League away day we’re also fancying a 3-0 correct score prediction.
