Borussia Dortmund head coach Lucien Favre commented on his team's 3-1 loss to Barcelona, speaking at a press conference after the UEFA Champions League match in Barcelona on Wednesday.
"We already knew that this was a very complicated group with FC Barcelona, Inter and Slavia. It is not easy to play against them. It is clear that we must win the next game no matter what and hope for Barca to win against Inter, of course," Favre said.
The Borussia Dortmund coach complimented the performance of Barcelona star Lionel Messi, who marked his 700th appearance for Barca on Wednesday. "He can move very well between lines and when he gets the ball it is very hard to stop him. One must make a foul [to stop him]," said Favre.
Borussia will now have to better Inter Milan's result against Barca on December 10 as they are scheduled to clash with Slavia Prague, if they want to qualify to the next round of the competition.
