The FC Barcelona players apparently assume that they will have to win all of the last three Champions League group games in order to reach the round of 16 in the premier class.
According to the Spanish Sports it is expected in the Barça dressing room that FC Bayern will intentionally let Inter Milan win the last group game so that the Catalans miss the knockout phase of the premier class again.
The reason for this is said to be the transfer drama surrounding Robert Lewandowski in the summer. According to the report, the Munich team could throw Barça out of the competition out of annoyance at the Pole’s commitment and the previous lengthy, tough negotiations.
