All odds seem to be against the BVB in this showdown. Borrusia Dortmund is going to Camp Nou as an underdog, hopefully to rally round a share of luck. Their season is getting more and more abated. Starting with der Klassiker humiliation to an abysmal 3-3 draw at home to Paderborn.
They seem to have lost the gird under Lucien Favre. They are not the impressive Borussia Dortmund they were last season. They lost the sense of playing the gegenpressing effectively. Also, they play with little or no killer instinct. Their hope in Jadon Sancho seems to have been dashed after the wonderkid was left frustrated – owing to lackluster performance against Bayern Munich.
Having said all these, Lucien Favre may not have the profile to spring forth any surprise against the Blaugrana. But, highly experienced Marco Reus and Matt’s Hummel can be the main source of inspiration for the BVB. So, a 1-1 first leg encounter is enough to tell the Blaugrana how formidable is Borussia Dortmund. Also, a win at Camp Nou is highly indispensable for the BVB to have other group games played with serenity and also a place in the UEFA Champions League round 16.
However, Barcelona is going to this game without injured Jordi Alba, Nelson Semedo, Clement Lenglet and suspended Gerard pique. This can be a recipe for disaster for the struggling Ernesto Valverde side. They will be looking forward to putting behind the disappointing goalless draw against Slavia Prague when they face Borussia Dortmund on what could be called the group F winner game.
Barcelona has been a subject of criticism this season due to their over-reliance on Lionel Messi. You will be forgiven if you believe their European and domestic campaign has been woeful even with Lionel Messi. They always struggled against a high pressing side like the Borussia Dortmund. They lost the bid to win the UEFA Champions League title last season as a result of a defeat to Liverpool – A high pressing team.
Interestingly, their 2-1 dramatic comeback to win against Leganes after a woeful first-half display may be a source of inspiration to them when they face Borrusia Dortmund. It is worthy of note that Barcelona know the knack of winning at Camp Nou. They have won the majority of their Champions League game at home, irrespective of how good or poor they perform.
