Barcelona will take on Royal Antwerp on Wednesday night in Belgium, knowing that a win or draw over the Belgian side will see them finish the group stage at the top of Group H, while Antwerp have nothing to lose, having lost all of their opening five group stage games. Barca will look to win it in a bid to build their form following their 4-2 shock home defeat to Girona in La Liga.

Prediction: Royal Antwerp vs Barcelona

For the Royal Antwerp vs Barcelona prediction, we say Barcelona will win 3-0 and this is why. Antwerp lost their opening five UCL group stage matches and are well out of the competition. They have nothing to fight for, while Barcelona are keen to finish the group stage as the winners. The Catalans are unlikely to concede a goal because the Belgian side has scored three in five games.
Prediction: Royal Antwerp 0-3 Barcelona

We predict over 2.5 goals on Royal Antwerp vs Barcelona, and this is why. Three of Antwerp’s last five UCL matches ended with over 2.5 goals, plus the reverse fixture ended in a 5-0 win for Barca.
Betting Tip: Over 2.5 goals

Match Preview: Royal Antwerp vs Barcelona

Royal Antwerp lost their opening five UCL matches and are at the bottom of Group H without a single point. They scored three and conceded 15 goals over the course. Although the Belgian side beat Cercle Brugge 3-1 away from home, they are likely to fall short against Barcelona.

Barca are at the top of Group H with 12 points after four wins and one defeat in five matches. They need at least a point off Royal Antwerp to ensure they remain at the top, irrespective of the Porto vs Shakhtar Donetsk result. Barca succumbed to a shock 4-2 defeat at home to in-form Girona on Sunday in La Liga, and as a result, Xavi Hernandez’s side is keen to bounce back to winning ways.

Predicted Starting Lineups

Antwerp: Butez, Wijndal, Coulibaly, Alderweireld, De Laet, Keita, Vermeeren, Ejuke, Ekkelenkamp, Balikwisha, Janssen

Barcelona: Sotorres, Kounde, Araujo, Christensen, Cancelo, Pedri, Gundogan, De Jong, Raphinha, Lewandowski, Felix
