Borussia Dortmund vs Monaco
UEFA – Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 3 October 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Signal-Iduna-Park (Dortmund).
In the second round of the Champions League group stage, Borussia Dortmund are going to face Monaco.
Home side is in an excellent form as they still haven’t lost since the beginning of the season. They’ve tied two wins in a row, in the first one Lucien Favre’s side trashed Nurnberg with 7-0 scoreline, while in the latest one they managed to come back after being 2-0 down away to Bayer Leverkusen and celebrate a 4-2 victory.
After Bayern Munchen’s hiccup in the last two rounds, Borussia Dortmund are sitting on the top of the Bundesliga being also the most efficient side in the competition. They’ve celebrated a narrow 1-0 win in the opening round thanks to a bizarre goal away to Club Brugge.
On the other hand, Monaco are in a very poor form as they’ve lost three times in the last four matches. The visitors have been looking for a win in the last eight matches and they are in a deep results crisis.
Monaco have not scored in the last two occasions and Radamel Falcao and the lads need to get back on winning track as soon as possible. They haven’t been better in the Champions League as well as Atletico Madrid celebrated a 2-1 win in their clash.
Borussia Dortmund vs Monaco: Head-to-head
These two sides met each other in two occasions in the Champions League quarter-finals last season and Monaco celebrated a double victory. In both matches we were able to see at least four goals and teams unable to keep the clean sheet.
Borussia Dortmund vs Monaco: Prediction
This time, the hosts are in a much better momentum and they should be able to take advantage of Monaco’s poor displays. Borussia Dortmund are favourites in this one and they should be able to win another three points.
Monaco have severe problems in converting their chances into goals, but they might be able to break their negative attacking run in this match. We should expect both teams to find the back of the oppositions’ net in this clash.
