Barcelona vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction
Barcelona had romped to a huge 4-1 victory over Celta Vigo the last match-day. The La Liga encounter saw Lionel Messi delivering a hattrick solely comprised of set-pieces, to help his team to a routine win in front of the home crowd. The visitors did hit one goal back, once again denying Barca’s German shot-stopper a clean sheet.
Towards the end of the fixture, the hosts added one more goal via Sergio Busquets to complete the 4-1 scoreline, and thus maintained their position at the top of the table.
Meanwhile, in what was practically the most important fixture in their title-race, Dortmund failed to take advantage of the problems Bayern Munich were going through at the moment. The Bavarians had sacked their gaffer, and it looked as if their archrivals might have had a chance to secure a rare win at the Allianz Arena.
However, the unstoppable Robert Lewandowski, who once used to don the colors of Dortmund, sunk his former team with two goals, and to pile on it, Mats Hummels was forced to score into his own net. Altogether, four unanswered goals were fired into the posts of Dortmund.
This match-day, the Nou Camp will be a major factor in determining the outcome of the game. Say what you want about the Catalans, but they do know how to deliver in front of the home crowd.
In fact, they are unbeaten in their last ten appearances here, of which nine were wins. Going on, they also managed to script a triumph in 18 of their former 21 home games as well. On the other hand, their German counterparts were winless in seven of their previous twelve overall fixtures, and importantly in their last four on the road.
In addition, their latest road trip saw them mess up a major chance to win against a Bayern Munich, who were practically without a gaffer.
Finally, count in the 100% unbeaten record of the Blaugrana over Dortmund, and it looks as if we are in line for a victory for Barcelona this Wednesday.
