Pick 2: FC Barcelona ML (-155)

Analysis: Barca are currently sitting at second in the group with 6 points. With a win today, they will advance to the next round. Xavi's first match in La Liga vs. Espanyol was a bit underwhelming. They managed to keep a clean sheet, and Memphis was able to convert his chance at the PK spot. Barca led in xG (1.56 to 1.06 for Espanyol) - registering 16 shots and 12 chances created - both topping Espanyol. 

Last time Barca and Benfica faced off, Barca were in shambles. Benfica easily stumped Barca 3-0. xG, total shots, and shots on target were ledby Benfica. Ideally, Xavi will put his best men forward for this game and I see Barca getting back to their winning ways starting with this match.
