Borussia Dortmund star player Marco Reus said that he and his team-mates were looking forward to playing Barcelona in the Champions League this season. The German winger’s side has the toughest group in Europe’s top competition with. Group F featuring Barcelona, Dortmund Inter Milan, and Slavia Prague.

“A few of us from the team were stood together at breakfast this morning and we all agreed that we’d love to draw Barcelona,” he said.

”Buzzing that it’s actually happened! Obviously the group is extremely difficult; we’re coming up against teams who we’ve not tested ourselves against in recent years.

”The games against Barcelona will have a party atmosphere for us and our fans! We believe in our quality and our aim is to go through.”

Dortmund and Barcelona playing each other twice in a somewhat short period of time will be exciting. Both love to play fast pace, aggressive football. Reus and company are probably jazzed to play someone as fast and talented as Barcelona. It’s a wonderful measuring stick for any club.
