Antwerp vs Barcelona Possible Lineups, Team News, TV Channel for UEFA Champions League 2023/24


Royal Antwerp have suffered defeat in each of their five  UEFA Champions League group games and will be fighting for pride when they host Barcelona, ​​who are currently first and could end up as group winners if they can avoid defeat.

The Belgian club did not have the best of times in the group stage of the UEFA Champions League. They suffered defeat in all five matches and conceded 15 goals. Royal Antwerp have only found the back of the net three times and will be looking to add to that when they host Barcelona.

They may struggle in the Champions League, but Royal Antwerp are doing a decent job in the Belgian Pro League. They are currently fourth in the table. The home team is on a three-game winning streak after defeating FC Shakhtar Donetsk and will try to continue in a similar vein against the Spanish club.

Barcelona lead the group with 12 points from five games. They won four times and suffered a defeat once. The Catalan giants have already secured their place in the knockout stages but must avoid defeat here to secure top spot in their group.

Xavi’s team will be confident of getting the result they want, but they are not heading into this match with the best possible result. The reigning La Liga champions have just suffered a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Girona.

It was an important game in the La Liga title race and the defeat did not help them. However, they will be looking to get back to winning ways against Royal Antwerp. The Hard Tackle takes a closer look at both teams and tries to predict the tactics they might deploy.
