Spanish champions Barcelona have an opportunity to bounce back from the Levante setback when they face Czech Republic outfit Slavia Prague in the Champions League.
Barcelona were beaten 3-1 by Levante in their Spanish La Liga clash at the weekend but didn’t cause them much problem as they were able to keep their place at the top of the table.
The Spanish champions took the lead through Lionel Messi from the spot before they went on to concede three goals in nine crazy minutes to lose that league game against Levante.
Barcelona can bounce back almost immediately with the Champions League game against Slavia Prague at the Nou Camp on Tuesday night.
