Barcelona's Champions League fate is in the hands of Viktoria Plzen, hilarious footage proves they're 'doomed'

Barcelona's Champions League fate is in the hands of Viktoria Plzen, hilarious footage proves they're 'doomed'

Barcelona need Viktoria Plzen to avoid defeat against Inter Milan or else they will be eliminated from the Champions League.

Barcelona fans are not holding out on a favour from Viktoria Plzen against Inter Milan after seeing footage of them merely looking happy to be in the Champions League.

Xavi Hernandez's side need an absolute miracle in order to qualify for the round of 16 after a poor run in Group C.

They currently sit in third and have taken just four points from as many games so far. Inter are on seven points after the dramatic 3-3 draw at the Nou Camp and a win will book their place in the knockout stages.

If the Nerazzurri do pick up a victory at the San Siro in the early kick-off, Barca will be eliminated from the competition irrespective of how they get on against Bayern Munich on Wednesday evening.

The maximum points tally Barca can attain is 10 and Inter have a superior head-to-head, which would be referred to if the two sides are level on points after matchday six.

Barca desperately need the Plzen to avoid defeat against Inter. The problem is, the Czech outfit haven't got a single point on the board and not many are taking them too seriously.

That's because when the Champions League anthem was being played ahead of the game against Bayern at the Allianz Arena, Plzen's players were all smiles and waved at the camera.

It wasn't exactly the actions of a focused team, with Plzen almost accepting that they are here to make up the numbers.

The clip was shared with the caption: "This is what Barcelona are depending on tonight I'm crying."

One Twitter user joked: "They just here for the vibes they dont [sic] care at all."

Another commented: "They don't even look professional."

Barca staged a miraculous Champions League comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 but things are completely out of their hands now.

The La Liga giants blitzed Plzen 5-1 in their opening game but then slipped to defeats to Bayern and Inter before claiming a last-gasp draw with the latter.

Barca therefore look set to drop into the Europa League for a second season. Xavi, meanwhile, has confirmed his side will watch the other fixture ahead of their visit of Bayern.

"We’ll all watch the game together in the locker room," he revealed in Tuesday's press conference.

'The goal tomorrow is to play a good game and have good feelings, regardless of what happens in Milan. We have to show that we can compete with this type of teams.'
