Tip Barcelona - Borussia Dortmund
When you've conceded seven goals in your last two games, do you really fancy a trip to Barcelona? That's the situation facing Borussia Dortmund who are second in this Champions League group, a point behind the Spanish side. Dortmund's form is a bit worrying with a 4-0 away loss to Bayern Munich and then a 3-3 home draw with relegation-threatened Paderborn. They had to come back from 3-0 down to get a point in that game. They are three points ahead of third placed Inter Milan but if the Italians win their last two games, they'd qualify if Dortmund lost one of their last two matches. Away form is another worry for Dortmund who have already lost to Inter in this group. Only one of their last six away games have been won and Dortmund have failed to score in the last three.
Barcelona top the group and a win here will see them finish top. They are also top of La Liga but had to come from behind to win at Leganes on Saturday. Barcelona are the only unbeaten team in this group with two wins and two draws. The reverse fixture with Dortmund was drawn as was the home game with bottom of the group Slavia Prague. That's the only game Barcelona have failed to win in their last eight home games. In the Champions League, they haven't lost a home game in six years with 11 of the last 13. With their opponents struggling at the back, the tip here is for a home victory.
