Ousmane Dembele has been talking about Wednesday’s Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund as he prepares to face his former team.

The two clubs head into the game at the Camp Nou as the top two teams in Group F after four games played.

Barcelona lead the way on eight points, while Dortmund are just a point behind in second and can leapfrog Ernesto Valverde’s side with a win.

Dembele talked about what his team can face from the Bundesliga outfit and how it will be a special night for him.

“Dortmund will be a special match for me. I still have friends amongst my ex-team-mates. We will be rivals, but nothing changes. I left three years ago and I haven’t seen them since then. Emotionally, it will be a bit difficult, but I will be happy to see them and to play against them.”

“They’re a team that attacks and doesn’t tend to play defensively. They always play as a team and give everything, wanting to win every game, because they’re a great side. They’ll come with a lot of intensity, but Camp Nou awaits them!”

The two teams played out a goalless draw in September in the previous group game, but both will be anxious to claim all three points ahead of their final fixtures. Barca’s final group game is against Inter at San Siro, while Dortmund host Slavia Prague.
