Barcelona drew 0-0 with Borussia Dortmund in their opening Champions League encounter on Tuesday evening.
Of course, with their ambitions and aspirations, the Catalan giants will want to get back to winning ways in Europe’s elite club competition as quickly as possible; they will also play Inter Milan and Slavia Prague in Group F.
Nevertheless, fans have praised Frenkie De Jong for his performance against the German giants.

Was great, grew into the game with every second. Broke play up, broke lines with his passes and linked up with Messi superbly. Expecting so much more, top 3 midfielders in the world right now.
