It's matchday! Barcelona are in Germany for a very difficult UEFA Champions League match at Borussia-Park, facing a Borussia Mönchengladbach team that won their last 11 home games and promise to create a hostile environment for the Catalan giants.

The Blaugrana are the leaders in Group C, and need a victory to stay at the top before two straight matches against Pep Guardiola's Manchester City. A win today is vital, but the game won't be easy at all.

Should fun, though.
