Group F should satisfy even the most demanding fans. There are two clear favorites in the face “of Borussia” and “Barcelona” and the rebels, thanks to Conte, “inter” and “dark horse” of the Champions League by Slavia, who are unbeaten in 15 matches in all competitions.
The match between Borussia Dortmund and Barcelona have to set priorities in this group. These teams met in the two-legged confrontation in the framework of the UEFA super Cup in 1998 year. Then, the Catalans won with a total score of 3:1.
- Borussia Dortmund
- The coefficients and forecast
Borussia when Favre began to find a quite attractive shape. Last season Dortmund were close to the League title, but lost it for Bayern.
In the Champions League the Germans won the first place in their group ahead of Atletico Madrid, club Brugge and Monaco. Well in the 1/8 finals Borussia lost to “Tottenham”.
I wonder what Dortmund for the third time in a row in the Champions League encounters in the Champions League group stage with the Spanish clubs. Statistics in these matches are not in favor of Dortmund. They failed to win in 5 of 6 matches against Spanish teams.
Now the team has a new entry for the title and Champions League and results Favre can be more than satisfied. Particularly strong “Borussia” with “Iduna Park”. Here it is crushed Bayern in the super Cup, as well as “smeared” “Augsburg” 5:1 and Bayer 4:0, so for Barcelona, which consistently kept a clean sheet in this season in every game, it is scary.
Note, Paco Alcacer, who has previously represented Barcelona. He never feels for her tender feelings, as expressed in interviews. Alcácer scored just a crazy shape, scoring in 8 of their last matches in a row. And he scored and Bayern in the super Cup and two matches of the Spanish national team against Romania and the Faroe Islands.
Motivation to score for Barcelona and he will have more than enough. Besides him there are Royce and Sancho, being in great shape, as well as Brandt and Torhan Azar, which perfectly fit into the tactics of the favr. The rest have favr little of the battle. Will not play only Mori and Schultz, who are not the main players.
Barcelona this season is very much unstable.
The team shows very poor results and is sorted by the end of 4 rounds only 5-th place in the Example of Spain, lagging behind the leader “Seville” on 3 points.
In these matches, the Catalans, who usually complain about their defense conceded 7 goals already. 2 times in the gate of “Barcelona”, “married” Betis, Osasuna and Valencia, and even the most experienced Ter Stegen, who is famous for the fact that he takes the dead ball does not always smooth out the mistakes of his defense.
Perhaps the reason that the leader of “Barcelona” Messi has not played this season a single match. But there is good news. To match with the “Borussia” Messi needs to recover.
Earlier recovered from his injury and Suarez has managed to stand out in gate “Valencia”. Thus, in the infirmary, “Barcelona” will be only Umtiti and Dembele. It’s not a critical loss for the Catalans.
The coefficients and forecast
I advise you to put on TB 3. Both teams are very effective. Barca even without Messi in the Example an average of 3 goals. Borussia in the Bundesliga the figure is even slightly higher.
Given the large problems of the Catalans in the defense and high motivation of Alcacer and the whole Borussia worth the wait here scoring extravaganza. And here’s the outcome to put I do not advise, here is the match 3 result.
