Atletico Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund
UEFA Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 6 November 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).
Atletico Madrid will be hoping to get the revenge for a tough 4-0 defeat they suffered two weeks ago at Signal-Iduna-Park. They will host Borussia Dortmund in the reverse fixture of the Group A derby on Tuesday evening at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.
The visitors will stay at the top of the group standings even with a loss here as they’ve been brilliant so far in the competition. Due Schwarzgelben are three points clear off Atletico Madrid and they have a superb 8-0 goal difference coming into this fixture at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.
Dortmund are really flying high under Lucien Favre this season. They top the Bundesliga ladder as well with six wins and three draws from nine rounds. The team was successful last week in DFB Pokal beating the second-division outfit Union Berlin 3-2 in front of the home crowd.
Atletico Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund: Head-to-head
The match played in late-October was the first ever head to head meeting between these two likes.
Raphael Guerreiro was the man who stole the show netting the second-half brace, while goals also came from Axel Witsel and Jadon Sancho.
Favre played with Marco Reus as a “false 9” on the occasion as team’s top scorer Paco Alcacer skipped the match.
Atletico Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction
Atletico recovered from the aforementioned catastrophe at Signal-Iduna-Park by beating Real Sociedad 2-0 at home in the following La Liga clash. Diego Simeone’s men managed to keep their net untouched last week as well when they saw off Sant Andreu 0-1 on the road in the first leg of the Copa del Rey last 32 round.
However, maintaining such a fine defensive form will be quite a challenge for the hosts given they are up against the red-hot attacking line of Dortmund’s once again. After all, Atleti felt the strength of BVB’s attack two weeks ago. Dortmund bagged three or more goals in seven of last eight games in all competitions and we can’t see them as underdogs here at all.
The value is with the visitors who re 1.53 to find the back of the net at least once on the evening. You can alternatively back Dortmund not to lose at the 2.10 odds.
