Dortmund and Barcelona have both started their domestic campaigns in mixed fashion ahead of the Champions League Group Stage.


Bundesliga giants Dortmund demolished Augsburg 5-1 and Köln 3-1 before being defeated by newly-promoted Union Berlin.

However, striker Paco Alcacer has continued his outrageous form to begin 2019/20 with a goal in all seven games for club and country so far this season.

He racked up two plus an assist against Augsburg, taking his overall Dortmund tally to 24 goals in 36 games, with many of those appearances from the bench.

Alcacer joined permanently from Barcelona in 2019 and will be desperate to prove a point when the sides meet in Germany.

If Messi is declared fit to play, he won’t be anywhere close to full match sharpness.
