Barcelona Prediction – Can Barcelona confirm qualification?

There’s still everything to play for when Barcelona play host to Borussia Dortmund on Matchday 5 on Wednesday night at the Camp Nou as the hosts have yet to confirm their place in the knockout rounds of the Champions League.

Barcelona sit top of Group F thanks to remaining unbeaten in their group campaign, but they only hold a 4-point lead over 3rd placed Inter Milan who travel to bottom club, Slavia Prague this evening so the equation is simple – if Barcelona win they’ll qualify for the next phase of the Champions League.

The hosts bring a 3-match winning streak in all competitions into this clash with Dortmund and as mentioned previously, they’re also unbeaten in Group F to date having registered wins against Inter Milan 2-1 at home and a 2-1 win at Slavia Prague along with draws against Borussia Dortmund (0-0 away) and a another 0-0 stalemate at home with Slavia Prague.

With just 1 defeat out of their last 16 matches in the Champions League overall, Barcelona possess a quality pedigree at this level and won’t be an easy assignment for Dortmund on Wednesday night, especially as Barcelona have won 11 of their last 13 home ties in the competition.

Borussia Dortmund Prediction – Can Dortmund see off Inter challenge?

If Borussia Dortmund avoid defeat in Barcelona on Wednesday night this would see the German outfit take a significant step towards achieving a top two finish in Group F, especially as their last match in the group stages is a home tie against bottom side, Slavia Prague while Inter Milan take on Barcelona.

The visitors currently sit in 2nd place and hold a 3-point cushion ahead of 3rd placed Inter Milan prior to this Matchday 5 action, but defeat at Barcelona and an Inter Milan win would take it down to the last round with a straight tussle between the two clubs for the other spot alongside Barcelona into the knockout phase.

It’s been a bit of a mixed bag of results for Borussia Dortmund so far in this campaign as they’ve recorded wins against Slavia Prague and Inter Milan along with holding Barcelona to a 0-0 draw at home but also lost 2-0 away at Inter Milan.

However, Dortmund will be concerned over their results away from home in the Champions League as the German club have managed to collect just 3 away wins out of their last 12 matches on their travels at this level, and this poor run of results could be their undoing on Wednesday night.


Key-Facts – Barcelona vs Borussia Dortmund

  • Barcelona have won 11 of their last 13 home ties in the competition
  • Dortmund have collected just 3 away wins out of their last 12 matches in the CL
  • The only previous meeting between these two sides ended in a 0-0 draw


Betting Tips Verdict

Barcelona therefore look the most likely to grab the three points here and confirm their place in the knockout phase.
