Our expert gave a prediction for the match of the group stage of the Champions League season-2019/20 Barcelona – Borussia Dortmund. The F group meeting will take place on Wednesday, November 27, at the Camp Nou stadium in Barcelona.
A very important match for Barcelona, where it must take 3 points to enter playoff. Otherwise, a tough game in the last round in Milan with Inter. As the Catalans are not very good on away games this season, all issues need to resolved on Wednesday at Camp Nou.
On paper, Borussia is precisely the team that can deliver the maximum problems to Barcelona at Camp Nou. The Dortmund players always brilliantly counterattack and use the free space, which is bound to be, because Barca, as usual, will have the ball all the time. Besides, it has serious losses in defense – the injured Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba, and Nelson Semedu will not be able to play – these are the main central, left and right defenders.
Despite this, Barca remains one of the best teams in the world to play at home. “Borussia”, to get into the playoffs, also needs to take points, so it has to take risks and go forward. Messi and Suarez are in great shape and will wait for their chance to score.
Our prediction – Barcelona win with handicap -1
