Barcelona v Borussia Dortmund: Action packed first-half in Spain

Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde.
Will Ernesto Valverde have the answers when Barcelona host Borussia Dortmund?

Both Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund are fast starters and Dan Fitch is predicting goals to be scored before the break.

"Dortmund have conceded a total of nine goals in their last three matches and six of them have come in the first-half of those games."

Back over 1.5 first-half goals between Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund at 2.47/5

Results against bottom clubs demonstrates issues for Group F giants

The top two teams in Group F face off on Wednesday when Barcelona host Borussia Dortmund.

It is Barcelona that have a one point advantage over the Germans and are top of the group, but they will be frustrated that the situation is so tight. Their surprise 0-0 home draw with Slavia Prague has given both Dortmund and Inter hope of finishing in a qualification position, with two games remaining.

Barcelona are also proving to be erratic in their domestic league, despite the fact that they are top of La Liga. They won their match at the weekend, but hardly convinced as they had to come from behind to beat bottom of the table Leganes 2-1.

Borussia Dortmund are also struggling to find consistency. Since coming from 2-0 down at home to Inter to win 3-2, they have failed to win either of their Bundesliga matches. Dortmund were thrashed 4-0 at Bayern and then at the weekend had to come back from being 3-0 down to draw 3-3 against Paderborn, who are bottom of the league.

Defensively unreliable teams could produce exciting first 45 minutes

Dortmund have conceded a total of nine goals in their last three matches and six of them have come in the first-half of those games.

With Barcelona conceding in the first-half of each of their last two games, this could be a match that gets off to a fast start. Inter are expected to beat Slavia Prague in the group's other match, which would put them in a strong position to qualify, so Dortmund must be bold. Over 1.5 first-half goals is 2.47/5.
