Real Madrid vs Dortmund Prediction & Betting tips
Almost exactly a year ago, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund met for the last time at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu. At that time, both teams were in the Champions League group victory and BVB came in better shape after a 2-2 draw. In the end, the Borussia have to be happy in the end, if at all for an overwintering in the Europa League enough. Even a narrow defeat could be enough, as the competition for third place at the Tottenham Hotspurs, which are currently at the top of Group H. Whether APOEL Nicosia but just get the strong Englishman a point seems unlikely, so that Dortmund can operate in the Royal damage limitation. However, we do not even believe in a draw because of the recent overwhelming disappointment of the Black and Yellows, and we recommend betting on the hosts, which are offered at betting odds of up to 1.50 and are worth three units to bet on.
Real Madrid :
Real Madrid’s situation is certainly not comparable to that of Borussia Dortmund, although the team of coach Zinédine Zidane did not live up to their own claims. In La Liga, the Royal are currently only in fourth place and behind the big rivals FC Barcelona after the fourteenth match already eight points. In the Champions League Real is after the somewhat disappointing results against the Tottenham Hotspurs (H 1: 1, A 1: 3) with now three points behind only in second place. The group victory is even for the unlikely event that the English lose against APOEL Nicosia no longer possible, as is known in the Champions League in case of equality, the direct comparison counts.
The shape of the Zidane-Elf does not tear us off the peg right now. Although Real Madrid have been undefeated for a month now, they also won three matches against UD Las Palmas, APOEL Nicosia and Malaga FC in all competitions. In the city duel against Atletico Madrid, however, it was just like the last weekend at Athletic Bilbao just a goalless draw. In the second leg of the Copa del Rey a week ago, a Royal B-Elf against third division CF Fuenlabrada then reached even a meager 2: 2-draw.
Borussia Dortmund is currently only a shadow of his own. Since the end of September, the team of coach Peter Bosz rushes from one disappointment to the next and remained without victory in both the Bundesliga and in the Champions League. All in all, BVB only scored five points from their last ten matches in all competitions (although we deliberately exclude the 5-0 victory in the DFB Cup against 1. FC Magdeburg). Nevertheless, those responsible continue to give their head coach confidence and seem to speculate that Peter Bosz defends at least third place against APOEL Nicosia. That, of all things, against Real Madrid the turnaround succeeds, seems to be excluded after the two dismal 1: 1 draw against the Cypriots. Because against both Madrid (1: 3), as well as against Tottenham (A 1: 3, H 1: 2), it was already defeats.
The shape of the Borussia is catastrophic for their circumstances. After three defeats against Bayern Munich, VfB Stuttgart and the Tottenham Hotspur, the Dortmund reached against Schalke and Leverkusen last two draws. However, there would have been more in the last two games. Because a week and a half ago the Bosz-Elf went in the Revierderby with a furious performance with a 4-0 lead into the break, but gave it back in the second half and ultimately felt as a loser from the square. Last weekend, BVB had to cope with a backlog against Leverkusen, but then had to benefit from an early relegation of Leverkusen. Over sixty minutes in excess were enough for a again disappointing BVB only to equalize, which, however, was completely earned.
