Barcelona will host Porto in a vital UEFA Champions League Group H clash on November 28 as both sides battle for top spot.

Xavi’s Blaugrana have the upper hand based on their head-to-head record against Porto, with the pair level on nine points from four games played.

A win in this match will ease Barcelona into the round of 16 with one group stage match remaining, while a draw would also send the Catalans into the winner’s bracket unless Shakhtar Donetsk beat Royal Antwerp in the second leg.

Porto will be confident of holding off Shakhtar and joining Barca in the knockout stages. Should the Ukrainian side fail to win, Porto could secure a place in the next stage if they can surprise Barca at home.
