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.

Champions League Predictions And Betting Tips
Porto – Leicester is one of the most interesting games of this week’s Champions League, for a wide variety of reasons, almost none of which relate to the English Champions. Leicester have qualified and are doing badly in their domestic league, which opens the door to Porto to do what’s required of them and qualify from the group as well – but will they be able to capitalize? Porto vs Leicester City – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Porto 1.35 or 7/20 Draw 5.25 or 17/4 Leicester City 11.00 or 10/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.85 or 17/20 Under 1.95 or 19/20 Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.25 or 5/4 No 1.57 or 4/7 Porto can qualify in only…
Although Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified, Group E still gives us an interesting clash: Tottenham vs CSKA Moscow. The two teams haven’t been up to their normal standards of quality in the CL so far, but surely want to play European soccer – even if it is in the Europa League. Tottenham have a slight advantage, but will it prove to be enough? Tottenham vs CSKA Mosow – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Tottenham 1.53 or 8/15 Draw 4.33 or 10/3 CSKA Moscow 7.00 or 6/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.80 or 4/5 Under 2.00 or 1/1 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.95 or 19/20 No 1.80 or 4/5 Actually, the Spurs have a few advantages on their…
Group H is one of the interesting ones for this week. Although Juventus and Sevilla are more or less sure of their qualification places, they still need to figure out who will win the group. While Sevilla has a very hard game against Lyon, Juventus are hosting the weakest team of the group stage, Dinamo Zagreb. A win would ensure first place – can they get it? Juventus vs Dinamo Zagreb – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Juventus 1.12 or 1/8 Draw 10.00 or 9/1 Dinamo 26.00 or 25/1 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.44 or 4/9 Under 2.70 or 17/10 Both Teams To Score: Yes 2.62 or 13/8 No 1.44 or 4/9 Our analysis tells us that Juventus should…
The last day of the Champions League group stage is one of the hardest to predict. Teams are either qualified and have no desire to field their best eleven, or are clinging to the last chance to play European football in spring as well. Sadly for the spectacle of the CL, Bayer Leverkusen and Monaco are already qualified before their direct game and are both sure of their positions in the group. Bayer vs Monaco – 07/12/2016 Betting Odds FT Result: Bayer 1.80 or 4/5 Draw 3.80 or 14/5 Monaco 4.75 or 15/4 Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.75 or 3/4 Under 2.05 or 21/20 Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.70 or 7/10 No 2.05 or 21/20 Monaco is one…
