The Champions League is back in full swing tonight, with FC Barcelona one of many teams looking to cement their Group Stage top spot.

They take on Olympiakos tonight at the Camp Nou, having already won twice in Group D against Sporting Lisbon and Juventus.

Barcelona also remain unbeaten in all competitions so far this season, going into the home clash against Olympiakos on Wednesday off the back of a 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid. 

It’s not all good news for Barca though, with Jordi Alba missing tonight’s clash after injuring his thigh during training earlier this week.

Barcelona have yet to confirm how long the left-back could be sidelined, telling fans: “The full extent of the damage will not be known until after tests by the club medical staff.”

It should also be noted that Ousmane Dembele, Rafinha and Arda Turan all remain sidelined through injury. 

Lucas Digne could have a shot of filling one of those free spots tonight, having managed just two appearances so far this season.

A win tonight would boost Barcelona’s chances of making the knockout stages of the tournament, as they aim to win the prize for the first time since 2015.


Coverage of this evening’s Champions League Group D match between Barcelona and Olympiakos will be shown live on BT Sport ESPN (BT Sport Extra 2) (Sky 426, Sky HD 458, Virgin 534, BT TV 411) with the pre-match build-up starting at 7:35pm and kick-off at 7:45pm.
