As the UEFA Champions League group stages start getting to the business end, the top spot in Group H is still up for grabs. FC Barcelona boss hopes it will be ‘a magical night’ as his team takes on the Portuguese giants FC Porto on Tuesday night.

The teams last played each other in the reverse fixture in October with the Catalan side emerging victorious by a solitary goal scored by Ferran Torres. It was an entertaining encounter with several chances failing to be converted by Porto. Barcelona would have left Estadio Dragao feeling lucky with Xavi admitting in his recent press conference that his team ‘suffered’ that night.

Catch the highlights here.

Xavi has called for the supports from the fans stating,

“The Porto match is vital. We need the fans more than ever. We need to get the winning mentality back”

Barcelona are coming off a disappointing draw against Rayo Vallecano over the weekend and most probably will be without custodian Marc Ter Stegen.

Porto are on a three match winning run, with a four nil win against CDC Montalegre in their last match. The Dragons will look to bank on Evanilson, the man in form, to carry it into Tuesday. Sergio Conceicao has kept a realistic attitude for the game stating, ‘every game has its own story and its determined by our performance’.
