Slavia Prague vs Borussia Dortmund
Date: Wednesday, 2 October 2019
Kick-off at 17:55 UK / 18:55 CET
Venue: Sinobo Stadium (Prague).
All the teams in the Group F are yet to register a win in the Group stage games. With Barcelona and Inter Milan along in the mix, it will be a tight fight for the first two spots. The hosting side, Slavia Prague, will be hosting their first CL home match in this season. They tied their opening clash at Inter’s home. The Red and Whites will be hosting the Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.
Borussia Dortmund was the previous season runner-up in the Bundesliga and are known for their exhilarating fans. The Black and Yellows have lost only one in the last seven away fixtures in major tournaments. With the host’s unbeatable run in the Czech League 1 matches proving no match for the Bundesliga clashes, it will be a far off compared to the visiting contingent.
BVB had their previous CL clash with the Spanish giants, Barcelona, and managed to keep them at bay at their home tie. The game did not deliver any goals as both teams drew to a defensive game despite their attacking style of play. Slavia Prague had encountered most ridiculous speculations when they were drawn in with the three big teams.
The home team managed to score a goal against Inter in a trip on the road. The Italian superpowers, topping the Seria A table in this season were taken back by their surprising fight. In short, we can experience a good fight between the two and will see how far the host can outwit their German counterparts.

The teams have not played before in recent times.
Slavia Prague vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction
The host has not much experience in the big leagues even though they are the Champions in the First League Czech fixtures. Also, they have not encountered BVB and their sharp attacking style of game before. Besides that, the visitors were able to hold Barcelona on their reigns in the previous CL clash in the groups.
BVB has won in all but one match in their trips on the road recently in the past seven fixtures in major competitions. They also have two clean sheets in the same period. Moreover, they have faced big teams, unlike the host. As such, the match will probably end with the visitors gaining all three points with likely a lead in either half of the ninety minutes.
