The Czech side were happy to joke at their own expense on social media.

Slavia Praha takes on another of European football’s heavyweights on Matchday 3, which brings the first-ever meeting against Barcelona.

Now, the Twitter account of Slavia changes the bio as “The club next to Barcelona in MD3 & MD4 Champions League schedule”.

Slavia is currently sandwiched between second-placed Barcelona and fourth-placed Inter Milan in Group F but could climb to the top of the table with an unlikely victory over Ernesto Valverde’s juggernaut on Wednesday evening.

They come up against the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann on Wednesday night, with Valverde likely to pick a full-strength team after the postponement of this weekend’s El Clasico against Real Madrid.

Slavia knows they are up against it this midweek, but did not let the size of the challenge that awaits them ruin their sense of humour.

Ahead of Wednesday night’s fixture, the Czech side changed the Twitter bio of their English account to read: “The club next to @FCBarcelona in MD3 and MD4 @ChampionsLeague schedule.”

And the official Barcelona account posted a screenshot of the bio, replying; “10/10 bio. See you Wednesday, @slavia_eng.”
