Group F of this year’s Champions League is one of those which seem almost pointless on paper. Most probably, Dortmund and Real will qualify directly, with Sporting Lisbon going in the Europa League and leaving Legia Warsaw last. After Day 1, these predictions see on point, but we’re now waiting for the highly-anticipated game for first place. Episode 1 will take place in Germany.
Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid
Betting Odds At Football Betting Sites
Dortmund 2.55 or 31/20 Draw 3.80 or 14/5 Real Madrid 2.70 or 17/10
Dortmund was the first team of the group to play Legia, and although the Polish fans backed their team for the entire 90 minutes, they still ended up losing 0-6. Dortmund went on to win 6-0 in the Bundesliga as well, against Darmstadt, although they missed a lot of first-team players.
The team is no longer all about Reus, Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan – but also about Guerreiro, Castro, Passlack or Kagawa, to keep the list short. If Tuchtel can maintain their great form, we might see Dortmund fly high – just like in the Klopp era.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid requires no introduction. The current holders of the Champions League don’t play very impressive football so far but won all their competitive games this season nonetheless.
The most important objective for them at this time is to gradually break Ronaldo back into the team, after his injury in the Euro 2016 final. The Portuguese international will be pivotal in Real’s campaign this year.
Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid Betting Tips
Although the game will be very close, we just about fancy Dortmund to edge it. If they won’t win, a Real victory in Germany seems unlikely – so 1X could be a great idea. We do expect to see goals, so over 2,5 goals is another great idea, and another good idea is to go for a “both teams to score” bet.
If you’re looking for some individual bets, we fancy Ramos to be booked and Aubameyang to score. To be honest, we’d feel a lot more comfortable in our predictions if Dortmund didn’t miss lots of players through injury, but they still have more than enough to compete.
