BAR vs DOR Dream11 Match Prediction | UEFA Champions League

BAR vs DOR Dream11 Match Prediction: The Catalans will be welcoming Borussia Dortmund to Camp Nou for a Group F fixture of the UEFA Champions League.

Ernesto Valverde will be under immense pressure does his side lose against Dortmund as they will have to register a win at San Siro against Inter Milan to advance to the next round.

FC Barcelona currently occupies the top spot with eight points. Meanwhile, Dortmund is just a point behind the Spanish giants. Inter Milan comes in at the third spot with four points under their belt.

FC Barcelona had the opportunity to go even higher in terms of points when they hosted Slavia Praha but could only settle for a goalless draw. The outcome of tonight’s game could be pivotal for FC Barcelona’s season as well as Ernesto Valverde’s tenure at the club.

Match Details

Date- Thursday, November 28 | Kick-Off- 1:30 AM (IST) | Venue- Camp Nou
