Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid – UEFA Champions League On the 2nd round of this Champions’ League Group H…
We will have a clash at the Signal Iduna Park, in Dortmund between the team managed by Peter Bosz, Borussia Dortmund, and Real Madrid, coached by Zinedine Zidane, on the first encounter between the Spaniards and the Germans on this Champions’ League edition after already having met 8 times since 2012, in very entertaining matches with a lot of attacks and quality.
Both teams have a long list of unavailable players: On the hosts’ side Raphael Guerreiro, Marco Reus and Marcel Schmelzer are injured while Erik Durm, Sebastian Rode and André Schurrle are still doubtful.
On the side of the Spanish champions, Karim Benzema, Theo Hernandez, Kovacic, Toni Kroos and Marcelo are injured, so they are unavailable for this match.
After a somewhat surprising loss against Tottenham, Dortmund are forced to get a positive result in this match, in order to stay on track to achieve their objective of qualifying for the next stage of this competition, despite facing in theory the toughest opponent of this group H on this match.
The German team is having a notable start of the season, practically perfect, leading the Bundesliga and playing quality attacking football, reminiscent of the Klopp’s era.
As for Real Madrid, they have started the season with some inconsistency and it seems like they are yet to recover from it.
The team is still far from presenting the level they presented last season and they have been dropping points in La Liga, which is worrying for them, since their rivals Barcelona have already built up a considerable advantage.
Considering the absences for this match, it will be curious to understand how the European champions will approach this encounter.
Dortmund vs Real Madrid – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Both teams play attacking football but they also make a lot of defensive mistakes, which leads to them having matches with a lot of goals scored, from both sides.
Taking that into account and everything else I’ve said, I think this is a match where we will “easily” witness 3 or 4 goals being scored.
