Last meeting between these two sides-
The last meeting between these two sides ended in a goalless draw at Signal Iduna Park. Borussia Dortmund showed utter dominance in that match. However, Borussia Dortmund could not secure a win in that match due to some brilliant saves from Marc Andre ter Stegen.
Now, both sides will be desperate to secure all three points from the reverse fixture at Camp Nou on Wednesday. Based on the overall history, the hosts will be the favourites to win, with odds of 1.49 favouring them. BigPesa adds that a draw is valued at 4.1, while a win for the visitors is valued at 4.9.
Will Barcelona win or is another draw expected?
Barcelona are currently at the top of the table in Group F, with eight points from four matches so far. On the other hand, Borussia Dortmund are just one point behind the Catalan giants. Inter Milan are at the third position, with four points and they will face Slavia Praha in this game-week.
So, a lot of changes can still take place in this group following the results of these matches. Barcelona will miss their star centre-back Pique, as he is suspended from taking part in this match. Jordi Alba, Clement Lenglet and Nelson Semedo are doubtful to take part as well, due to muscular injuries.
On the other hand, Borussia Dortmund will miss Jacob Bruun Larsen and Thomas Delaney due to injuries. Further, Paco Alcacer is also doubtful with a knee wound. So, it will be a challenge for both the managers to field a good starting line-up to secure qualification in the next round of this competition. Based on BigPesa’s odds, 2-1 is the most favoured score-line for this upcoming game.Published 26 Nov 2019, 11:35 IST
