Germany (AP) — With hopes of a fourth consecutive Spanish league title fading, Barcelona is turning its full attention to defending its European crown — which is bad news for Bayer Leverkusen.

Both sides are having domestic troubles going into their meeting in Tuesday’s Champions League round of 16 first-leg match, but it is arguably Barcelona which has more to prove.

Saturday’s 3-2 loss at Osasuna, coupled with Real Madrid’s 4-2 win over Levante on Sunday, left the defending Spanish champion 10 points behind its bitter rival, which has dropped only eight points all season.
