Borussia Dortmund Vs Barcelona: 5 players who could change the match on their own as both the teams will face each other tonight.
Barcelona are set to meet Borussia Dortmund on the opening day of the Champions League 2019/20, and both the teams would be looking ahead to secure three points in this season’s Group of death.
Certainly, this game is really interesting on paper and with Borussia Dortmund in spectacular form, Barcelona are going to have trouble away from home.
Although, Barcelona’s players are also picking up form, even though the club is at its weakest phase in recent years. However, the Catalans would be feeling relieved as their captain Lionel Messi is back in the squad and have traveled with the team.
But it is not sure, whether the Argentine International will start against Borussia Dortmund, most likely he will appear from the bench and might get few minutes to play in the end.
Thus, the German giants will not have a headache to control Messi for the most part of the game and could focus on adding pressure to the visitors.
Therefore, with the game about to kick-off in the next few hours at Signal Iduna Park, the Sportsrush discusses 5 players, who can influence the game on their own.
#1 Frenkie De Jong
The new Barcelona signing is slowly showing off his capability in the Blaugrana colours, and with his impeccable record in the Champions League. Frenkie De Jong might make a contribution to Barcelona.
The Dutch International recently showed against Valencia that how lethal he can get after he scored a goal and gave an assist to get the man of the match award in the last La Liga game.
Moreover, with Barcelona’s bolstered attack with the return of Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi, De Jong is expected to provide some assists in the game.
Hence, we feel that De Jong is among the players tonight to look out for, as his creativity in midfield can be vital for Barcelona.
