We have known Lucien Favre for several years as a coach in the Bundesliga. If one of his teams was not doing well, then the coach often looked down. The Swiss is extremely strong in developing a team, but with headwinds, he can only relatively bad deal. After the recent weak performances, the wind blows him neatly in the face.
Barcelona vs Dortmund Free Betting Tips
Lucien Favre has become skinned. Officially, the match in the premier class in Barcelona is not considered a game of fate, but Hans-Joachim Watzke made it clear on the weekend at the general meeting that the trust is still there, that BVB can not escape the laws of the market. The air for the Borussia coach should therefore be very thin.
To win in Spain, of all things, is a Herculean task for the people of Dortmund. In the last eleven away matches against a team from La Liga, BVB did not win a single victory. Four draws and eleven defeats are the modest returns. This probably means that we would hardly make a prediction on a victory of the black and yellow before the duel between Barcelona and Dortmund.
Barca leads the classification with eight points. BVB is behind with seven points behind. Above all, Inter Milan is still within reach with four points, while Slavia Prague with two points is probably only about reaching the Europa League.
Given the desperate record on Spanish soil and the current problems of the Dortmunder, the host Catalans should be clearly in the advantage. Especially away from home, it is not around at all for BVB. Therefore, there is little choice but to place a tip on a victory of the home side in the match between Barcelona and Dortmund.
With a win Barca would be safe in the second round and would have thus already secured the group victory. No more and no less will be the goal of the Catalans this Wednesday.
Barcelona – Statistics & Current Form
There is certainly no reason to complain at FC Barcelona, then the team of Ernesto Valverde leads after 13 matchdays the ranking in La Liga with 28 points, but sovereign does not always seem what the Catalans on the lawn conjure. The arch-rival Real Madrid is only due to the worse goal difference in second place.
In La Liga, it looks as if the eternal duel this season will find a sequel, garnished with the two big clubs Atletico Madrid and Sevilla FC. The big attraction Barca is not this season, however. Nevertheless, there was only one defeat in the past twelve competitive matches, which came somewhat unexpectedly in Levante.
FC Barcelona are unbeaten this season in front of their home crowd. There was a single slip-up against Slavia Prague, when they were down 0-0. Otherwise, there were seven victories in the seven other home games. That is one of the reasons why there are only modest odds between Barcelona and Dortmund for the home side’s success.
Last weekend, Barca struggled with the visit to Leganes. For a long time afterwards, it looked as if the leader would have scored points. Leganes were 1-0 ahead at the break before Luis Suarez equalized after just over one hour. Substitute Arturo Vidal was ten minutes from the end of the shooter’s 2-1 victory.
A special encounter will be this match for Ousmane Dembele, who did not change from Dortmund to Barcelona two years ago. In the first leg he was still injured, but this time the Frenchman should at least be in the squad and welcome many old colleagues in his new home.
Personnel are worried at FC Barcelona, especially on the defensive. Ernesto Valverde will hope to return to Clement Lenglet on Wednesday with Gerard Pique missing the defensive boss with a yellow card suspension. In addition, Nelson Semedo and Jordi Alba still missing, so that Barca must compete with an unfamiliar four-chain.
Expected formation of Barcelona:
↪ ter Stegen – Sergi Roberto, Umtiti, Lenglet, Firpo – Busquets, Vidal, de Jong – Messi, Suarez, Griezmann
↪ Coach: Valverde

Dortmund – Statistics & Current Form
In free fall, the BVB is certainly not, but the team of Lucien Favre looks confused. Maybe the backpack is too big that the Dortmund have proclaimed the title fight before the season, albeit after enormous investments. At the moment, Borussia, especially in the Bundesliga, lags behind its own demands.
In the past season BVB had at this time ten points more in the account than this season and was not a master in the end. 20 counters are currently available. That’s just enough for sixth place in the table. On leader Gladbach missing only five points. It is not too late to reverse the trend and secure the job of Lucien Favre.
However, at the moment it does not look like Dortmund could start a run. Just outbound in the last few weeks is not much together. In foreign parts, the Dortmund have been without victory for four games. This is no encouragement for the bookmakers to give a positive prediction to the guests in the match between Barcelona and Dortmund.
A disaster was the 3: 3 last weekend at home against the promoted from Paderborn. After the 0: 4 against Bayern should actually be made reparation. At break, however, the Borussia were 0-3 behind. Only through an energy performance in the second section, it was enough for the goals of Jaden Sancho, Axel Witsel and Marco Reus to a point win.
Paco Alcacer, who spent two years in Barcelona and became champions and cup winners there, had to be substituted before the break. Maybe it will not be enough for a place in the squad on Wednesday in his home country. The starting team seems at least completely excluded. Overall, however, the staff at Borussen looks very good.
With Thomas Delaney, there is only one sure failure. This means that Lucien Favre can play at Camp Nou to his liking. It will be seen if his team will let him stand in the rain again. A clear bankruptcy could mean that it was the last appearance of the Swiss on the bench of BVB.
Expected formation of Dortmund:
↪ Bürki – Piszczek, Hummels, Zagadou, Guerreiro – Witsel – Sancho, Reus, Brandt, Hazard – Götze
↪ Coach: Favre

⚽️ 05.11.2019 – Dortmund vs Inter Milan 3: 2 (Champions League)

Barcelona vs Dortmund Direct Comparison
A classic in European football is certainly something else. Until today, the paths of FC Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund have only crossed three times. It is striking that BVB has never prevailed against the Catalans. Barca is in direct comparison with two wins and a draw in front.
The first two duels gave it to the wedding of BVB. In March 1998, Barcelona and Dortmund faced each other in the two finals for the European Supercup. The first leg in Spain won the home side 2-0. The 1: 1 in the second leg Barca handed the trophy.
The hitherto last duel of these two clubs was mid-September in Signal Iduna Park on the program. In a modest game in which Dortmund was the slightly better team, the two opponents separated with a 0-0. Barcelona thanked Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who saved a penalty from Marco Reus.

What can you expect from BVB in Barcelona? At the moment Borussia are not much away away. For four games Dortmund is waiting for a win in a foreign country. In Europe, Spain is also not the preferred patch of black and yellow. In the last twelve appearances at Spanish clubs, there was no more success. In addition, the team of Lucien Favre mentally injured.
Although Barcelona does not currently celebrate football from the other star, at least there have been three wins to date, and at home the Catalans are doing very well in seven wins and a draw this season. All facts speak before the match between Barcelona and Dortmund for a tip on a relatively clear home win.
Key Facts – Barcelona vs Dortmund tips
💫 Dortmund has not won in the European Cup in the last eleven games in Spain.
💫 Barca has scored seven wins and a draw in eight home games this season.
💫 Away Dortmund has not won in the last four games.
We can only agree with this assessment. If Dortmund occurs as in Munich or in the first half against Paderborn, then it should be dramatic for the black and yellow. We assume a middle ground and bet in the match between Barcelona and Dortmund on the betting odds for a Asian Handicap (-1.5) of the Catalans.
