Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund predictions- Understandably, after winning back to back Champions League titles, Real Madrid were made huge favourites to top their group when they were drawn, with many expecting a close battle between Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund for the runners up spot. However, things have panned out a little differently to expectations.
In fact, Real Madrid have already relinquished any chance of taking the win in the group, sitting three points behind the fantastic Spurs and with a worse head to head record than their opponents. They have, however, secured qualification to the knockout rounds thanks to the dismal showing put on by Borussia Dortmund.
Their German visitors haven’t won a single one of their group games so far, and their only two points have come from disappointing draws against APOEL. This puts them 3rd in the group, but APOEL are level on points with them and do have a slim chance of leapfrogging their illustrious rivals for the Europa League spot.
Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund predictions
Real Madrid certainly haven’t been at their best this season. They have only won three of their last eight games in all competitions, but it’s undoubtedly their defence that’s letting them down. They have conceded nine goals in these eight games, and with their attacking talents still firing this has resulted in half of these eight outings seeing four or more goals in total.
At home their results do improve, where they have won seven, drawn four, and lost one of their 12 competitive games. They have scored at least two goals in all but three of these matches too, and Borussia Dortmund know perfectly well just how devastating their star studded attack can be.
Dortmund’s season is going dreadfully to be honest. They are used to putting up a challenge for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, but currently find themselves 6th in the table and with just one win from their last eight outings in all competitions.
They managed to throw away a ridiculous four goal lead at home to Schalke at the end of November, highlighting exactly where their problems lie. Borussia Dortmund have conceded 19 goals in their last eight games, scoring in every one as well. This has resulted in four of them having at least four goals, so backing Over 3.5 Goals here looks a good choice.
The visitors have been shocking this season, and Real Madrid will want to earn some pride back in the Champions League so they will be expecting a win. We’re backing Real Madrid to Win and Both Teams to Score, along with a 4-1 correct score Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund predictions.
