The 2018/2019 UEFA Champions League is here, and five-time champions Barcelona, winners of last season’s Spanish La Liga championship, face reigning Dutch Eredivisie titlists PSV Eindhoven in front of what is expected to be a packed Camp Nou. But Barcelona will be looking for redemption after they were unceremoniously bounced by AS Roma in last season’s quarterfinals, as the UEFA website records, despite winning the home first leg of the tie 4-1. On the other hand, PSV have never won the UEFA Champions League and have progressed past the group stage just four times — a situation they will try to rectify when they open their campaign in a match that will live stream from Spain.
PSV Eindhoven, however, does have one European championship in their trophy case, winning the European Cup way back in 1988, as Back Page Football notes, along with the Dutch league title and Dutch Cup win.
Neither team has lost or even drawn a league game so far this season, with Barcelona coming in atop the La Liga table at 4-0, while PSV Eindhoven have won their first five league matches straight. In fact, PSV are riding a 7-0 drubbing of ADO Den Haag over the weekend into their showdown with the Catalan giants, according to Sports Keeda.
