Barça has turned Camp Nou into a fortress of play and results, but undergoes a radical change when playing away from home. Dortmund will be a great test
The FC Barcelona will première in the Champions League of the present season with a proof of game: a party against the Borussia Dortmund out of house. The Signal Iduna Park, stage in which the Barcelona have not played never, will be witness of the first European test of the ones of Ernesto Valverde, that come of golear to Valencia.
Until the moment, in the four parties contested, the culés have taken out glorious results in the Camp Nou, goleando to the Real Betis and to Valencia. The problem arrived in the meetings in which they had to beat out of house; parties in which the results were not so good harvesting a defeat in Saint Mamés in front of the Athletic Club and a tie in the Sadar in front of Osasuna.
This Tuesday, to the FC Barcelona will touch him happen a proof of fire in front of the Borussia Dortmund, a powerful team that carries years showing that it is very difficult to win when it plays home. Thus, the Barça will have to improve a lot in the version showed in the two parties played this season far of the Camp Nou.
Of course, in the memory are also the bad results of the ones of Valverde in Champions in the parties played out of house. Anfield, Old Trafford, the Olympic of Rome, the Parc Olympique Lyonnais... Stages in which the culés did not achieve to win and, what is more worrisome, in some of them fell goleados.
Borrón And new account. Now it touches to think in what it will come and no in what it came. The FC Barcelona has left big moments of game in the present campaign and the Txingurri seems to have given with the key so that the team work. Trust the 'peloteros' in the centre of the field and in the young talents for the forward has given air to the team.
The Barça goes warned
This yes, the Barça will have to be very attentive to the spaces that generate to the back of his defence. Until the moment, the team has showed big offensive capacity, but also a fragility in defence that has carried to the team to fit goals in the four parties played. In front of the Dortmund it will be necessary to loan attention to the played fast.
