Showdown Pique Review - Is It Worth It?
This is a very nice card, and one that has the potential to get even better.
Wednesday's clash with Bayern Munich is much more important for Barcelona - who are still to secure their passage in the last 16 - than it is for Bayern Munich, who have already secured the top spot in Group E.
With that said, the Catalonian club are struggling for any sort of consistency, so it would be a surprise if they beat the German outfit, although a draw isn't out of the question.
This card is good enough without the upgrades though, so don't put all your eggs in that basket.
