Calendar of FC Barcelona

When the draw of the phase of groups planted in the same liguilla to FC Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund, Inter of Milan and Slavia of Prague, were not few those who signalled to the Group F as 'the one of the death', by the big competitiveness and equality that can give to measure that happen the days. True is that the Slavia of Prague is in disadvantage and in principle is the 'cenicienta' of this first phase, but for surprise of all empató in Giuseppe Meazza (1-1).

Said tie, joined to the 0-0 harvested by the FC Barcelona in the Signal Iduna Park, caused that it existed an atypical tie to 1 point between the four members of the Group F. After the second day, with the victories of Barça and Dortmund on Inter (2-1) and Slavia (0-2), now German and culés empatan to 4 points, and Czechs and Italians to a point. The question is: what would happen if it kept said equality in the following days?

If they produce ties between some members of the group, however, will apply a series of criteria that form part of the regulation of the UEFA, and that carry using from does several seasons. To continuation order them point by point, of first to last application:

Criteria to say the position in case of scored tie in Champions League:

  1. Greater number of points in direct clashes
  2. Difference of goals in direct clashes
  3. Greater number of goals in direct clashes
  4. Greater number of marked goals out of house in the direct trainings
  5. Better difference of goals in general
  6. More goals in favour
  7. More goals out of house
  8. More victories
  9. More victories out of house
  10. Fair-Play (Cards)
  11. Better coefficient

Analysing one by one the points in question, seems almost impossible that can arrive to value the appearance of the 'Fair-Play' or of the Best Coefficient. It was as it was, the reality is that the FC Barcelona finds in a group of big difficulty, and will have to be still in ascending line if it does not want to suffer more than the account to happen to the round of eighth of final.

Maximum competitiveness in the Group F of Champions League

The Inter of Milan has reinforced a lot this summer and, with the presence of players like Lukaku, Alexis Sánchez, Of Vrij or Godín, in addition to others already fixed from does years like Handanovic, Skriniar and Lautaro Martínez, aspires to give the surprise in the next days. Regarding the Borussia Dortmund, is surrendering to a prodigious level in the Bundesliga during this beginning of season, and already was about to to win to the Barça home.

Regarding the Slavia of Prague, will go split to party and will go out to play without pressure against the three 'giant' that have touched him in the group, with the maximum aspiration of at least not remaining last of group for, like this, play the UEFA Europe League from 2020. It will not have it easy... But the rest neither.
