Dortmund vs Barcelona − Match preview

Dortmund currently sit in second place in the Bundesliga, behind RB Leipzig, but we all know how much firepower they possess. Jadon Sancho and Paco Alcacer and are in terrific form for both club and country, and Marco Reus, Julian Brandt and Horgan Hazard haven’t been bad either.

Barcelona, meanwhile, need no introduction. However, as always seems to be the case, they’ve looked nowhere near their best without Messi. The magical Argentine hasn’t played since July, but could make his first appearance of the season tonight.

16-year-old Ansu Fati has stepped up in his absence, and Ernesto Valverde will be desperate to get a convincing performance out of his side tonight, with fans still bitter about the manner in which they exited last season’s competition.
