Monaco vs Borussia Dortmund
UEFA – Champions League
Date: Tuesday, 11 December 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: Stade Louis II (Monaco).
Monaco have beaten Amiens SC with two goals from Radamel Falcao and while they’ve missed all their chances to make a serious impact in Champions League Group A, Thierry Henry’s men will surely be very motivated to still show what they’re made of as they host Borussia Dortmund for their Matchday 6 clash on Tuesday evening.
Borussia Dortmund have bagged four wins and a draw in their last five outings as they travel to Schalke for their Bundesliga clash over the weekend. They have already secured the top 2 spot in Group A but we’ll now surely see them motivated to lift their team spirits further and challenge Atletico Madrid at the top.
BVB have been scoring numbers of goals on the road lately and we’ve seen them beat Sportfreunde Lotte and Mainz on their last two trips, which now has us hoping to see Lucien Favre’s men in great mood at Stade Louis II, which could make life very tough for Monaco once again – despite seeing their losing streak ended just a week before.
Monaco vs Borussia Dortmund: Head-to-head
Borussia Dortmund have beaten Monaco 3-0 in front of the home crowd earlier this term.
Monaco have bagged wins on both occasions in April 2017 and moved into the UCL semi-finals over the rivals.
BVB now want revenge and look to be in a lot better place at this point.
Monaco vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction
We will thus back Borussia Dortmund to secure all three points and make a last-ditch effort at the top spot, extending their streak across competitions and bagging a win priced at 1.66. They’ve been in great shape recently and it’s now tough seeing Monaco cope, despite their recent pick-me-up and high hopes they can finally end the crisis.
Nonetheless, BVB have struggled to keep clean sheets and rather enjoyed an attacking approach, which has us going for a high-scoring game now and Over 2.5 goals FT at 1.57. Indeed, both sides have been scoring goals and conceding goals lately and with that in mind, this does feel a lot like a banker bet.
