What to Know

We're heading into Matchday 3 of the Champions League group stage, and Barcelona will be playing Benfica at 3 p.m. ET Wednesday, Sept. 29 at Estadio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica (da Luz). Barcelona lost 3-0 to Bayern Munich two weeks ago. Benfica is coming off of a 0-0 draw against Dynamo Kyiv. Right now, Barcelona (zero points) is last in Group E, while Benfica (one point) is in second place in the group behind Bayern Munich (three points). Recall that only the top two teams in the group will advance to the knockout phase.

Barcelona needs to shift into gear; even with a win here, they will still be rounding out the group. A win for Benfica could even see them in first depending on other results.
