Borussia Dortmund vs Inter Milan
Date: Tuesday, 5 November 2019
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Signal Iduna Park (Dortmund).
With Barcelona taking on the dead-last placed Slavia Prague, at the Camp Nou, the loser between Dortmund, and Inter will definitely find it hard to qualify to the Round of 16. As of now, both have recorded four points on the board, and a draw or win would be the preferred outcome for the visitors, considering their 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture of this meeting.
Henceforth, the pressure is on the Germans. They need to make this home game count. One more encounter against Antonio Conte’s men, where points are dropped, and it would probably cast BVB to another spell in the Europa.

Borussia Dortmund vs Inter Milan: Prediction
Conte’s men really have been impressive this campaign, and in the Serie A, they are giving Juve a run for their money. On the other side, we have German heavyweights Dortmund, who have shown streaks of brilliance, maligned by occasional implosions. With stakes really high this match-day, a cracker of a game is on the cards.
Especially for the Germans, the match is of do-or-die nature. We can count on them to put the whole weight of the Signal Iduna Park behind their gameplay. They have been unbeaten in their previous eight straight games at this venue and remained so in 20 of their preceding 22 such clashes as well.
Impressively, of these 22, 16 were wins, and they found the back of the net two or more times in 19 of these 22.
Moreover, their last two appearances at home resulted in wins, and both were against Monchengladbach, current toppers of the Bundesliga.
Taking these observations into account, expect a hard-fought victory for the hosts.
However, do not at any cost anticipate the Italians to give up without a fight. Despite their away handicap, they stand a great deal to benefit from a great performance this Tuesday. In addition, since March of this year, the Milan outfit has lost just four times in total, and these had come against Barcelona, Juventus, Manchester United, and Napoli.
They have also scored twice or more in their preceding four match-ups, and in every single road game this campaign, bar the one against Barca.
As such, the chances for a clean sheet for the hosts look very dim.
