Barcelona continued their slow start to the season as they drew nil-nil against German side Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League. "We have to concentrate on our own game".

Barcelona defender Jordi Alba injured his hamstring in the 0-0 draw at Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, his team said in a statement on Wednesday, with Spanish media reporting that the Spain global will be out for around two weeks. "We suffered a lot", Barca coach Ernesto Valverde told reporters.

The two sides largely sparred for the opening five minutes, a feeling-out period with Barcelona largely looking to pass through the lines and spring Fati down the right, with Dortmund waiting to pounce and break on the counter.

Luis Suarez wriggled into the box to create a rare chance and tried to surprise Roman Buerki with a clever shot from a tight angle but the Dortmund keeper did well to guard the near post and palm the Uruguayan's effort wide. We could have won it as our performance was good.

If there's one thing that we should expect from this game it's goals.

Messi trained on Sunday and Monday after missing the first three La Liga matches of the season.

North Korea leader Kim invited Trump to Pyongyang in letter
His remarks come as Kim reportedly invited Trump to visit Pyeongyang in a letter sent in August. It's not clear whether Mr Trump has responded to either letter, according to the report.

The 32-year-old has been named in the squad for Tuesday's game, but is expected to make a cameo appearance at most in Dortmund.

Barca will hope Messi's return will boost their confidence having started their campaign on a losing note. "But I'd be happy if he plays".

"All teams have highs and lows, but Real, with such players, is programmed to overcome this and I think they will live an excellent season".

"They are good with or without him". They are very strong at home, this is the start and it was a tough match for us.

Should he score against Dortmund, the Guinea-Bissau talent would become the youngest player ever to score in the competition, overhauling a 22-year-old record held by former Olympiakos player Peter Ofori-Quaye. "We will have to be on our game for 95 minutes tomorrow, and be ready for everything".
