Barcelona superstar might miss Viktoria Plzen match



After securing a narrow 1-0 victory over Valencia, Barcelona are set to face their final UEFA Champions League group stage match against Viktoria Plzen in midweek. The superstar of Barcelona is expected to be dropped from the match.

Despite the fact that the Catalans are eliminated from the competition, Xavi emphasized the significance of a positive conclusion shortly after the victory over Valencia.However, given that there is nothing left to play for, Barça are unlikely to field a strong team against Plzen.

In light of this, Robert Lewandowski probably won't go to the Czech Republic this midweek.Toni Juanmarti says that the Polish international will get a much-deserved break after playing a crucial role in the club's attacking setup.

This report comes after Lewandowski played a key role in his team's victory over Valencia, when he scored a late winner to earn all three points.

Additionally, the game resulted in Lewandowski playing in 1,389 of the 1,530 total football minutes this season.As a result, Barcelona will give him a break before the game against Viktoria Plzen in the middle of the week.

Ferran Torres could play the number nine role in his absence, but Ansu Fati and other candidates are also in the running.

Aside from Lewandowski, Barcelona are supposed to be without Eric Garcia.In the victory over Valencia, the former Manchester City center back suffered a severe injury that is thought to be serious.

Garcia is expected to go through tests to decide the degree of his physical issue however early signs demonstrate that he will miss the game against Viktoria Plzen.
