Barcelona seeking to secure their place in Champions League final eight

8:26 am on 18 March 2010

The Spanish football giants Barcelona will be aiming to secure their place in the Champions League final eight when they host Germany's VfB Stuttgart in their second leg tie at the Camp Nou this morning.

After drawing the first leg 1-all in Germany, Barcelona are firm favourites to win today's clash and Stuttgart will have to play the game of their lives if they're to have any chance of advancing to the next round.

A goaless draw will send Barca through to the quarterfinals on the away goals rule but their manager Pep Guardiola says they'll be going all out for the win.

In this morning's other second leg tie the French side Bordeux play Greece's Olympiakos in France.

Bordeux lead one nil after the first leg in Greece.
