Barcelona vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction: Champions League Match on 27.11.2019
Barcelona face Borussia Dortmund at Camp Nou on Wednesday, with both sides knowing a win can all but guarantee their qualification for the knockout stage.
Barca will secure top spot with a win, while a Dortmund win means they just need a win at home to Slavia Prague on the final matchday to secure top spot.
However, with Inter sitting on four points in third and coming into good form in recent weeks, neither side can afford a defeat.
Dortmund haven’t started the season that well, but a draw in Barcelona will put them a win away from qualifying for the knockout stage from a tough group.
Barcelona defender Gerard Pique is going to miss out on this match with a suspension, while fellow center-back Clement Lenglet is also struggling with a calf injury.
Nelson Semedo and Jordi Alba are also out with a suspected return in December, meaning Barcelona will likely be short in defense for the next couple of weeks.
Dortmund have fewer injury worries, with Thomas Delaney and Paco Alcacer the only injury doubts at this point.
Delaney is unlikely to return until the new year, but Alcacer will hope to return to face his former club.
Barcelona vs Borussia Prediction
With both sides knowing a win can mean so much for their hopes of qualification, this is a crucial match for both Lucien Favre and Ernesto Valverde who have come under pressure so far this season.
Barcelona may be top of La Liga but have not been at their fluent best so far, while Dortmund sit in sixth spot, despite running Bayern Munich close for the Bundesliga title last season.
Barcelona are short in defense and Dortmund can hurt them with the likes of Marco Reus and Jadon Sancho in the attack, but La Blaugrana should still be favorites to win in their home stadium.
