Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid
Competition: UEFA Champions League
Date: 26th September 2017
Kick-off: 20:45 CET
Two weeks ago I backed Tottenham to beat Dortmund in London (2.35), and Pochettino’s team did an awesome job winning that game 3-1. Ever since then though, Borussia have been absolutely phenomenal. They started by humiliating FC Koln 5-0 at home, traveled to Hamburg and picked up three more points keeping another clean sheet (3-0), while just last weekend they… terrorized Gladbach, finishing the game on a hard to believe 6-1! They have five wins and just one draw (no defeats) in the Bundesliga so far, 16 points that have them at the top of the table, alone.
Real Madrid have visited Dortmund six times in the past, and they are still to win(!). Three draws were their best results. They are definitely not at a good moment, having dropped lots of points in their first La Liga matches this season. Last weekend they beat Alaves 2-1 away from home, bouncing back from their shocking 1-0 defeat to Betis at Bernabeu. Cristiano Ronaldo is back from bis suspension, but hasn’t scored in two LaLiga games. He did score twice in Madrid’s 3-0 win over APOEL two weeks ago, on the opening day of the Champions League group stage.

Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid: Prediction
Borussia are on fire, Real Madrid have been below average for weeks now, plus, they have never won in Dortmund, so despite acknowledging that the visitors can definitely win this game, I feel backing the hosts to earn at least a draw makes perfect sense.
Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid: Betting Tips
Dortmund’s double chance pays a very good (for a double chance) 1.65. For more than that, I would leave winners and losers aside, and I would go for over 3.5 total goals scored, at 2.00 betting odds.
