Match Preview

Ferencvaros will be looking to pull off a monumental shock when they welcome Barcelona to the Puskas Arena for Wednesday's Champions League encounter.
The Hungarian outfit are still without a win in Group G, whereas Barcelona have already secured their place in the last 16 as they sit atop the rankings heading into the penultimate matchweek in the group stage.
Ferencvaros were never expected to defy the odds and pip one of Barcelona or Juventus to a qualifying berth, with Sergiy Rebrov's side managing to take a solitary point from their opening four games in Group H.
The Hungarian side managed to hold Dynamo Kiev to a pulsating four-goal draw last month, but Ferencvaros have been put to the sword by Juventus twice and were thrashed on Barcelona's turf 5-1 by the Catalan giants back in October.
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, but their continental campaign may not be done and dusted just yet as Rebrov's men can still make the Europa League.
Indeed, Kiev are only ahead of Ferencvaros on head-to-head away goals, and with both sides expected to succumb to defeat against two European powerhouses on Wednesday, next week's showdown in Ukraine is likely to be make or break for Kiev and Ferencvaros, whose Champions League dreams are already in tatters.
Despite their troubles in Europe, Ferencvaros marched to their third league win in a row at the weekend as they overcame MTK Budapest with ease by two goals to nil, with Rebrov's men still unbeaten as they top the rankings in Hungary's top division.
Antoine Griezmann rivalled Messi for the goal of the day as his unstoppable volley left Osasuna goalkeeper Sergio Herrera rooted to the spot, while Martin Braithwaite and Philippe Coutinho also found the back of the net in a much-needed win for Ronald Koeman.
La Blaugrana have not given the best account of themselves in La Liga, but Koeman's side are four for four in the 2020-21 Champions League and their place in the last 16 is already guaranteed, but Juventus could still pip Barca to top spot as the Italian giants sit three points adrift of the Group H leaders.
Koeman could opt to name some big-rest players for the long journey to the Puskas Arena, and after witnessing a youthful side thrash Kiev 4-0 last week, the Dutchman will certainly not hesitate to shuffle the pack after his injury crisis worsened at the weekend.
