How to stream Barcelona vs. Borussia Dortmund in Champions League action

Barcelona’s one of the favorites to win the Champions League this year, though one of the main reasons why has yet to see action this year. Could this be the match where Lionel Messi debuts? Barca fans are waiting for Messi, Luis Suarez, and Antoine Griezmann to feature together. He’d certainly be welcome against a Borussia Dortmund they’ll face, incredibly, for the first time. 

Here’s everything you need to know to live stream Barcelona vs. Borussia Dortmund, including what to watch for on the pitch.

Barcelona vs. Borussia Dortmund: What to watch for

Going after Antoine Griezmann in the offseason was predicated in large part on this tournament, but it’s been 16-year-old Ansu Fati who has been the early surprise this season. His play, if he can keep up in Champions League what he’s done in La Liga, could be key to a title run. Messi’s return to health will also be welcome. 

Dortmund has a talented young player of its own in English international Jadon Sancho, joining the timeless Marco Reus and Mario Gotze on a roster that is consistently one of the best in the Bundesliga. This could be one of the best matchups that Group F offers, though Inter Milan will certainly have something to say about that.
