Barcelona’s Champions League dream could be over by the time they welcome Bayern Munich to Camp Nou on Wednesday. Earlier in the evening, Inter host bottom side Victoria Plzen in the knowledge that they could secure second place in Group C with a victory. Should they slip up, they would open the door for Barcelona, who likely need a win to have any chance of survival. Bayern, on the other hand, have 12 points from four games and have already secured their spot in the knockout stages, and victory here would seal top spot.
