  • Champions League

The Champions League resumes and BVB will clash with Barcelona tomorrow, a game that couldn’t come at a worse time for the black and yellows. Two Bundesliga teams will play already today and find themselves in very different situations.

Bayern Munich have already qualified for the next round but they want to secure a first place finish and are still on their way to a perfect run in the group stage. No Bundesliga team has managed to win all six of the Champions League group stage games, Bayern could be the first if they can get a win against Red Star Belgrade and Tottenham on the last matchday.

Bayer Leverkusen are under pressure in group D. The Werkself need a win against Locomotive Moscow and an Atletico loss to Juventus to even have a chance on the last matchday to qualify for the next round. Even if Atletico manage to win and eliminate Bayer from the Champions League, Leverkusen still need a win to even get to the Europa League.

  • Alcacer out vs Barcelona

Paco Alcacer won’t be able to play against his former club, leaving Lucien Favre once again without a true striker for a crucial game. The Spaniard suffered an injury against SC Paderborn last Friday and has not traveled with the team. Thomas Delaney and Jacob Bruun Larsen will also miss the game against Barca.
