Borussia Dortmund vs Barcelona Match Preview
Barcelona, and Lionel Messi in particular, must still be stinging from the manner of another Champions League collapse last season – and will be keen to get off to a flyer this time around in Dortmund.
Just as they had in Rome the previous campaign, Barca grabbed defeat from the jaws of victory when they went to Liverpool with a 3-0 semi-final lead and managed to lose 4-0.
You don’t have to be Mystic Meg to work out that Messi will want at least one more Champions League triumph before he calls time on his incredible career, and the 12 goals he had scored in the competition leading up to the Anfield debacle illustrated his determination.
Head To Head
As mentioned, these two teams have only locked horns twice in European competition, with both of those matches coming in the UEFA Super Cup back in 1998. Barca recorded a 2-0 home win before claiming a 1-1 draw in Germany to record a 3-1 aggregate success.
