Barcelona – Dortmund Match Prediction | 27-11-2019 15:00

While fans in rural Germany may still have some concerns over their sides defensive issues, BVB do have one leading man who has continued to shine since making the move from the Nou Camp. Desperate to fend off competition from Inter Milan and secure a route out of Group F, Farve should also be boosted by Dortmunds continued success on home soil. Starting with the hosts, although a hugely surprising 3-1 loss against Bundesliga debutants Union Berlin may have sent shockwaves across Europe prior to the international break, Borussia Dortmund did bounce back in some style on Saturday. Putting in their best display since opening the new campaign and putting four past Bayer Leverkusen at Signal-Iduna-Park, Head Coach Lucien Favre now sees his side sat just a single point behind bitter rivals and defending champions Bayern Munich. Former Barcelona striker Paco Alcarer once again found the net against Leverkusen over the weekend and already has five Bundesliga strikes to his name, averaging a goal every 70 minutes.

As for the visitors, while Barcelona may have managed to pick up a 5-2 win over Valencia on Saturday, the pressure firmly remains on the shoulder of Ernesto Valverde. Remarkably, the guests have failed to win any of their last four domestic matches on the road and their final European match outside of Catalonia ended with a 4-0 hammering at Anfield. A huge part of Barcas recent issue has been down to their struggles away from the Nou Camp. Opening the new La Liga campaign with a shock 1-0 loss away at Atheltic Bilbao on the opening weekend, the Spanish giants have also dropped points against a returning Osasuna. While 16-year-old sensation Anssumane Fati may have done a stellar job of filling the void in Barcelonas attack and has already bagged two goals in his opening three appearances, Tuesdays traveling support will be overwhelmed to see five-time Ballon dOr winner Lionel Messi make his return. Not featuring since picking up an injury while away with Argentina in July, the 32-year-old bagged 36 La Liga goals last season, 15 more than any other player.

The Catalans have also had their first taste of defeat in their respective league and have managed two wins and a draw from their last three games. However, the return of Luis Suarez to full fitness has certainly bolstered their hopes. The Uruguayan found the back of the net twice in their last fixture and will be an imminent threat if Ernesto Valverde decides to deploy him.

It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time ever in the group stages of the Champions League. Argentine ace Leo Messi, on the other hand, is rated doubtful for the match and seeing that Luis Suarez is not yet fully fit, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be summer signing Antoine Griezmann, who has been in a fine form at the start of the new La Liga campaign.

The goal is and remains clear. After five years, the Catalans want to triumph again in the Champions League. To say goodbye early and then, as three times in recent years, to watch the arch-rival Real Madrid celebrate, brings the fan soul in Barcelona to a boil. Once again, FC Barcelona has taken a lot of money to rebuild the squad.

Certainly not included are the ex-Dortmunder Ousmane Dembele and Samuel Umtiti and probably substitute keeper Neto. According to reports, he should at least travel to Dortmund and possibly be used as a joker. We assume, however, that in the premier class rather the more experienced players can accrue from the beginning. The whole of Barcelona is looking forward to Lionel Messi, who has not played for a calf injury this season.

Barcelona comes motivated to this match, after a 5-2 victory against Valencia, in a match for the Spanish league: the teams goals were scored by Luis Surez (2), Ansu Fati, Piqu and Frenkie de Jong. The game model of Barcelona is very interesting, since it benefits the maintenance of ball possession and organized attacks: Frenkie de Jong and Arthur are largely responsible for creating and organizing the offensive process. On the other hand, Luis Suarez and Griezmann offer great quality in completion. In the last Champions League, the Catalan club was eliminated in the semifinal, by Liverpool. Outside this game are Umtiti, Dembl and Neto, all with physical problems.

The team allowed goals to the opponent in 8 of the last 10 matches, so his defense needs to improve, but his attack has scored regularly, as he scored goals in 9 of the last 10 games. In the last 10 matches played as a visitor for all competitions, Barcelona won 4, drew 3 and lost 3. The visiting team will make its premiere in this edition of the competition, since it did not have to play any of the qualifiers prior to this group stage. In 15 games, he suffered the first goal 8 times and only got 1 comeback. The team comes to this match after a home victory with Valencia by (5-2).
