"I think BVB are clear favourites against FC Barcelona," Thon wrote in a column for Kicker and continued:
"The Spaniards won 5-2 against Valencia at the weekend without Lionel Messi, but I think they are average at the moment. Barcelona are searching for themselves.
"This is a big chance for Borussia to begin the Champions League season at home with an exclamation mark - and to gain further momentum for the title fight with FC Bayern and RB Leipzig," the former Schalke player added.
Dortmund will lock horns with Barcelona at Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday at 21:00 CEST.
