class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The winners of the 2015 Champions League should be able to get off to a winning start but we think Serhiy Rebrov's side will keep the score down
Barcelona play their first Champions League match under new manager Ronald Koeman on Tuesday evening when they welcome Hungarian outfit Ferencvaros to Camp Nou.
The Blaugrana suffered their first defeat of the season on Saturday as they went 1-0 down to Getafe, but are overwhelming favourites to record a victory against the Hungarian champions.

The Catalans have not lost a home group game in the Champions League for 11 years and Ferencvaros are priced at 25/1 (26.00) with bet365 to record what would be a huge shock.
Barca are offered at just 2/25 (1.08) with the draw available at 10/1 (11.00).
Barcelona vs Ferencvaros Team News
The hosts remain without the services of Marc-Andre Ter Stegen and Jordi Alba, while Samuel Umtiti is closing in on a return but is not expected to feature. Miralem Pjanic is also a doubt with a back problem.
Ferencvaros have no injury concerns.
Barcelona vs Ferencvaros Preview
After two impressive wins in their opening two matches of the La Liga campaign, Barcelona’s performances have dropped in their subsequent two games.
There is no doubt that the five-time winners of the Champions League are a far superior team to their opponents, yet they have not quite been firing on all cylinders.
As well, Barca have at struggled to break down the lowest-ranked team from their Champions League group at Camp Nou in recent years.

APOEL Nicosia were beaten only 1-0 in 2014, while BATE Borisov were overcome 3-0 in 2015 and last season saw Slavia Prague claim a 0-0 draw.
Barcelona are likely to win on Tuesday night, but there should be a temptation to oppose them running riot, despite the lowly standing of their opponents.
Barcelona vs Ferencvaros Tips and Predictions
Barca to win and under 3.5 goals in the game is priced at 6/4 (2.50) which might appeal to bolder punters while a home win and under 4.5 goals in the game is available at 8/11 (1.73).
The latter selection has paid out in 15 of Barca’s last 19 home win in the competition and looks like a solid option.
