Fc Barcelona will be looking to strengthen their grip at the top of Group H of the UEFA Champions League when they host Shakhtar Donetsk this evening. The Catalonians were lucky to defeat FC Porto in the last matchday and in the two games following it in the league, the team has looked well below par which will be a concern for Xavi. Barcelona were knocked out of Europe early last campaign and the squad must have learnt a lot from that experience. They will not be taking Shakhtar Donetsk lightly and expect the hosts to take the attack to the opposition from the onset. The visitors have managed a victory in their two group matches and a positive result here will improve their chances of making it out of the group. FC Barcelona versus Shakhtar Donetsk will be telecasted on the Sony Sports network and streamed on the Sony Liv app from 10:15 PM IST.
