The FC Barcelona crosses critical hours of face to what will be the crash in front of the Bayern Munich. The Barcelona look for his classification in Germany to the following phase of Champions in front of a Bayern with puntaje perfect. The ones of Xavi Hernández know that only a victory will give them the ticket to the eighth of final, if they do not want to depend on other results. However, the culés could have several 'aces under the sleeve' in what it promises to be another 'magic night' of European football.

Although the Barça is not favourite, a key point that could favour to the ones of the Camp Nou is the party between the Benfica and the Dinamo. The lusos add 5 units and occupy the third square in the group, just underneath of the Catalans with 7. The 'Eagles' confront to the colista in Lisbon, and of not adding of to 3 in front of the Ukrainians, would be giving him the pass to the following phase to the ones of Joan Laporta without mattering what suceda in Germany.

Another point for for the Barcelona are the drops by injury that presents the German group. Julian Nagelsmann offered the previous press conference to the party, in which it stood out that it will not have the presence of five key pieces, Joshua Kimmich, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry and Marcel Sabitzer. However, the German trainer also spoke on his rival. "The Barcelona is a very good team, follows having players of world-wide size. They are under pressure in the classification and will give it everything", commented Nagelsmann.

The 'Bavarian' come to play a party very desgastante in front of the Borussia Dortmund by the Bundesliga, another data that surely will take into account Xavi Hernández to formulate the pose of the party. The culés could initiate the party with an Ousmane Dembélé lit and that left very good feelings the weekend in front of the Betis. On the other hand, Memphis Depay looks for his first goal in Champions with the Barça and also would be in the eleven headline.

Müller and the Balloon of Gold

It does some weeks the world witnessed a historical milestone with Lionel Messi reaching his seventh Balloon of Gold above Robert Lewandowski, a record that no to all seated him well. Thomas Müller was one of them, and in the previous of the party in front of the culés, declared as they will go out to encarar the party for Robert Lewandowski. "From a Bavarian point of view, Pole and also German, the granting of the Balloon of Gold was for me a deep disappointment. It is a big motivation of face to the party of Champions against the Barcelona", said the German attacker.
