Barcelona vs Borussia Dortmund should be one of the most interesting Wednesday UEFA Champions League matches, which will be held at Camp Nou, in Barcelona. Two strong group F leaders will fight for the first place, but also need to take as much as possible points, as Internazionale still can catch them. We expect here a very tough and difficult game for both teams. During the first meeting, in Dortmund, hosts were much stronger and even had a chance to win this game, but Marco Reus missed the penalty and failed to take 3 points at home. Read our thoughts about this exciting Champions League Barcelona vs Borussia Dortmund match, here below.
Barcelona vs Borussia Dortmund
At the moment Barcelona leads the group with 8 points. However, their next rival stand second with only 1 point difference, so for both this game is very important. Still, Catalonians are unbeaten in Champions League, so here in Camp Nou, they should save this statistic. In Spanish LaLiga, they also stand at 1st place with two in a row won games and the same amount of points as Real Madrid have. Knowing, how difficult this season started for them, they found the right motivation and football already. However, a few weeks ago, Barca lost to Levante at Estadi Ciutat de València and than played draw at home against Slavia Prague. Even being very strong in absolutely all positions, Barcelona have weaknesses, so Borussia will try to use them.
In Champions League Borussia stands right after Barcelona and still have all chances to overtake them in Standings. However, the last performance is very disappointing, as they lost to Bayern Munich 4:0 and then lost points playing against Paderborn, the outsider of Bundesliga. Even playing at home they missed 3 goals in the first half and looked broken, however, in the second half they equaled the result and took 1 point. In general, once against Dortmund losing points in absolutely surprising matches, where they are strong favorites. Playing against Barcelona in such a form is very risky. Especially this is dangerous at Camp Nou, where Barca stronger than anybody in Europe.
Barcelona will play without Jordi Alba, Gerard Pique, and Semedo. While Borussia will come to Barcelona with absolutely first squad.
