Away day woes continue for Barca

It looked as if Barcelona had overcome the issues they suffered earlier this season when playing away from home, but their problems resurfaced at the weekend against Levante.

A Lionel Messi penalty gave Barca the lead on Saturday, only for Levante to respond with three goals within a seven minute period in the second-half. It was Barcelona's third defeat of the season in La Liga - all away - and it is only down to the inconsistency of the teams around them that they are still top.

Barcelona remain reliable at home. They have won all six of their home games this season, including their Champions League match with Inter. After beating Slavia Prague in the reverse fixture, Ernesto Valverde's side are top of Group F and have a three point cushion over both Inter and Borussia Dortmund.

Slavia Prague are rock bottom with one point and given the quality of the three teams that they are up against, even a third place finish looks unlikely. They can take solace from the fact that things could scarcely be running more smoothly for them in the Czech Liga, where they hold a twelve point lead at the top of the table after 15 games (W13 D2).

Goals on the cards

Barcelona might be struggling on the road, but there's no reason to think that they won't beat Slavia Prague comfortably at the Camp Nou.

The Spanish giants won their last home match 5-1 against a Real Valladolid side that have been defensively strong this season. Of Barca's six home matches, three have seen five or more goals scored, while they came close in another recent game when they beat a good Sevilla team 4-0. Over 4.5 goals looks generously priced at 3.814/5.
