Slavia Prague are preparing to play their first Champions League game in 12 years, away against Inter Milan, on Tuesday night. Slavia have a tough group that also features Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund and their manager, Jindřich Trpišovský, says the club’s aim will be to still be in European competition after Christmas.
To achieve that the Czech title-holders would need to come at least third in the group, a result that would give them a place in the knock-out stages of the second-tier Europa League.
This is only the second time Slavia have reached the Champions League.
