Borussia Dortmund vs Barcelona: Borussia Dortmund vs Barcelona: Messi against the ghosts
Borussia Dortmund vs Barcelona Champions League opener for the Blaugrana
Ernesto Valverde‘s players will attempt to turn the page on their recent failures as lifting silverware in Europe’s premier club competition is their main target for the season.
Lionel Messi isn’t willing to miss his team’s first European date this season, and after training with his teammates on Sunday and Monday he was included in the Blaugrana‘s squad list for the match in Germany.
Valverde, however, won’t risk an injury setback for the Argentine and the decision over whether he will step on the Signal Iduna Park pitch will be taken before the game.
Against Dortmund, the Blaugrana will seek their first away win this season after a 1-0 defeat to Athletic Club and a 2-2 draw against Osasuna in LaLiga Santander.
