Borussia Dortmund vs Sporting – Champions League Match Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
Borussia Dortmund has long had a fame of being an inconsistent team, but this season has been especially hectic – even by their standards.
Thankfully, their Champions League form is far better than their domestic form, and they face a team which they’ve managed to beat away from home. Will we see another Dortmund victory, or will Sporting be able to produce an upset?
Borussia Dortmund vs Sporting – 02/11/2016
We’re careful in predicting Borussia Dortmund wins this season, especially due to their current form. More and more players are returning from injuries, which is always a good thing, but it also means that the team lacks balance, depth, and chemistry in these games.
Their last game at home, a 0-0 draw against struggling Schalke, has shown this very clearly. Meanwhile, they aren’t necessarily pressed to win this game either – a point here coupled with another win against Legia will take them through, regardless of the result against Real Madrid.
On the other hand, Sporting are playing one of their last cards in this competition. If they manage a win against Dortmund, they edge closer and can even compete for first or second place.
If they don’t, it’s hard to think Legia will suddenly up their game and win points in the group, so third place should be rather easy to obtain.
Their most worrying aspect is the fact that they don’t seem to win away from home a lot this season, and the team is currently going through a rather rough patch.
Borussia Dortmund vs Sporting Betting Tips
That being said, we think Dortmund will win this. Home ground advantage and coming up against a team in bad form should mean a Dortmund victory, and we also see them scoring at least 2 goals in the process.
If you’re looking for a high-odd bet, this is our pick for a handicap win tonight – Borussia Dortmund -1 is a good idea. Good luck!
