Champions League: On the other match of Group H, Dortmund travels to Cyprus to face APOEL, on a match of the 3rd round of this group stage.
APOEL, like expected, will finish this group stage in last place of this group, since the gap quality to the other 3 teams is abysmal.
On the first two rounds, they were defeated 3-0 twice by Real Madrid and Tottenham, although those were 2 very different matches.
If on the trip to the Bernabéu, the Cypriot side cause their opponents’ defence little to no trouble, when they hosted Tottenham, although the result was fair, they have wasted clear chances to score.
Dortmund has already started to lose some ground to their rivals on this competition, not being able to get a single point up until now, being beaten 3-1 twice as well, against Real Madrid and Tottenham.
Their performance on the Bundesliga has been decent so far, leading the competition despite having lost at home on the last round, against Leipzig.
This season they have already played 11 official matches, and the matches finished with over 2.5 goals in 9 of 11 occasions, which clearly proves Dortmund’s great offensive ability, but also some defensive permeability.
For this encounter, the Dutch manager Bosz shouldn’t be able to count with Reus, Guerreiro, Pisczek and Schmelzer.
APOEL vs Dortmund – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The difference of individual and collective quality between this APOEL and the other teams in group H is so significant that I can’t imagine any scenario other than a German victory with goals.
The German attack shouldn’t have any opposition to score, against a defence who has conceded 6 goals in 2 matches.
But much like on their match against Tottenham, the Cypriots can still score at home, which might help us accomplish the Over 2.5 Goals.
