The Champions League is back, and Barcelona are in "desperate" need of a win after the club's disappointing loss against Paris Saint-Germain in the previous match of the competition. But Ajax are no easy opponent, even though most of the big names left the Dutch side during the summer transfer window. Add to that the fact that Barcelona are expected rotate quite a bit due to a marginally important game coming up on Saturday in La Liga, and what do you get? Well, we'll see later today.
Despite everything mentioned above, Barcelona's amount of sheer talent should be enough for the Catalans to earn the three points, especially at the Camp Nou, but the beautiful thing about football is that you never really know anything for sure until the final whistle from the referee. The two teams know each other very well, heck, the managers even played together. In fact, everywhere you look you will probably find some connection between the two clubs, which makes this match-up even more special.
The ideal scenario for Barcelona in this game would be that they hold a two, three goal lead around the one hour mark so that Luis Enrique can take a couple players that he counts on for the El Clasico and give them some much needed rest.
And what do you think how the game will end?
