FC Barcelona will travel to Hungary to face Ferencváros in the Champions League group stage match where they have already qualified and will most likely play the B team. Ferencváros on the other hand have just a point and are battling it out against Dynamo Kyiv for a spot in the Europa League knockout stages.
Ronald Koeman has chosen to rest key players like Ter Stegen, Messi, and Coutinho for this one and will give the kids a chance to play, giving them some opportunities to shine and possibly get more game time in the future. The Blaugrana are coming off a massive 4-0 win over Osasuna in La Liga last weekend, hence are full of confidence for this one.
Ferencváros are yet to register a win in the competition as they just managed to take a point from Juventus so far, which was an achievement. Only Red Bull Salzburg (14) have shipped more goals in the group stage of Europe’s elite competition this season than Ferencvaros (13) so far. Dynamo Kyiv are ahead of the Hungariyans on away goals and if things stay the way they are, the Ukrainans are going to qualify for the Europa League knockout stages.
