Henceforth, we look at the best dream 11 picks ahead of the most exciting clash in the Champions League group stage rounds.
Borussia Dortmund Vs Barcelona
Marc Andre Ter Stegen: Undoubtedly Ter Stegen is among the best goalkeepers in the world, and with the superior defence Barcelona have, Ter Stegen is expected to concede less.
Achraf Hakimi: The fullback on loan from Real Madrid has been a revelation at Borussia Dortmund and has been impressive for German giants and have scored 1 goal and gave 1 assist in the 6 games played so far.
Jordi Alba: Alba is undoubtedly among the best at his position, and has the skill-set to be a lethal force up ahead. In the 4 games played by Barcelona so far in this season, the Spanish International has even scored one goal, hence, he is in our team.
Nelson Semedo: The Portuguese defender brings the right balance to Barcelona defence, as he is good both defensively and offensively. Plus, he is expected to start ahead of Sergi Roberto in this game.
Thomas Delaney: Delaney is expected to start ahead of Julian Weigl, and considering Axel Witsel is the defensive one out of the midfield duo, he will surely have a crucial role against Barcelona.
Marco Reus: The most experienced player in the Borussia Dortmund’s lineup will be a really crucial player against Barcelona. Moreover, the German International is in a great form and have amassed 4 goals and 1 assists in 6 games he played so far this season.
Thorgan Hazard: The younger Hazard has been spectacular in Bundesliga since his arrival. The 26-year-old player recently joined Borussia Dortmund and is yet to make a mark at his new club, but he has been promising till now. Although, the stats are deceiving in this case, as Hazard has only obtained 1 assist from 4 games he has played for BVB.
Frenkie De Jong: One on the brightest prospects in Europe is slowly settling down in Barcelona, it was evident with his performance against Valencia, where De Jong scored a goal and gave 1 assist against Los Ches. Meanwhile, the Dutch International has a good record in the Champions League with Ajax.
Paco Alcacer: The Spanish striker has been tremendously good ever since joining Borussia Dortmund in 2018. In around 30 appearances for them he has amassed 23 goals and 1 assist, out of which 5 goals were scored in the last 4 games. Thus, Alcacer can haunt his previous side on Tuesday. Thus, with this remarkable record he is our vice-captain.
Antoine Griezmann: The new Barcelona signing was all along fulfilling the demands of goals needed to be scored by Barcelona, and the French International at some extent delivered by scoring 2 goals and giving 2 assists in four games played by Barcelona. Although, with the return of Lionel Messi, you can opt Messi too but it will need you to sacrifice on other valuable players and probably Messi might get less number of minutes, as he just recovered from an injury.
Luiz Suarez: The Barcelona striker has a poor record in the Champions League away games since few years, but anyway he is a world class player and cannot be ignored, as he is still lethal at the age of 32. Moreover, he just returned in action against Valencia, where he scored a brace to make his mark.
