Group F


Bet: Total Goals over 3

Borussia Dortmund is flying high at the moment. After a surprising defeat in Leipzig (0-1) which was not expected by betting companies, Die Schwarzgelben pitched in. They have won 3 games in Bundesliga scoring 14 goals. So at this moment Tuchel’s side is following Bayern and sits on the second place with 12 points after 5 matches. As for the Champions League tournament, the BVB was supposed to win the first game against Legia, but nobody (sports betting experts included) expected such a devastation in Warsaw where Tuchel’s team scored 6 goals and conceded any.

Real Madrid started the new season with lifting the UEFA Super Cup trophy. After that Los Blancos gained 4 victories in a row in La Liga. However, it seems that Madrid does have some troubles. Contrary to all sports betting predictions Zidane’s side lost 4 points in the last 2 Primera games. At first Madrid drew with Villarreal at Santiago Bernabeu (1-1) and then they failed to keep a win on the Canary Islands drawing with Las Palmas (2-2). What is more, despite the betting rates, the current title-holders made a very difficult start in the Champions League as they overcame Sporting (2-1) only owing to the 2 late goals of Ronaldo and Morata.

While choosing a bet you should take into consideration the fact that this intriguing fixture can partly decide the outcome of the battle for the 1st place in the group F. It is also absolutely necessary to pay attention to the head-to-head statistics. In their previous five Champions League encounters in Dortmund Madrid has only 2 draws in its record. Moreover Los Blancos were defeated in the last 3 games allowing 8 goals and scoring only 2. So Dortmund’s home record is unlikely to be broken this time because Zidane’s side is coming to Germany after two exhausting games in La Liga. In addition, the famous BBC is struggling to find their best form that is why even without injured Bartra, Bender, Durm and Schurrle Borussia is a real threat for the Spanish team. Nevertheless, Real Madrid is always Real Madrid and they are capable of everything even deprived of  injured Kasemiro and Marcelo.

So it is small wonder that the bookmakers do not name a clear favorite: Borussia Dortmund – 2,55, Draw – 3,60, Real Madrid – 2,70. Given the fact that both teams feel more confident in attacking than defending they will not even try to park a bus, but will play to their strengths. Thus, the bets “Both Teams to Score” (1,44) and “Total Goals over 3” (1,83) seem to get through easily. Besides, “Total Goals by Home Team over 1,5” (1,88) is certainly worth your attention. If you believe in Borussia Dortmund the option “Borussia Dortmund (Draw – no bet)” (1,82) is looking quite good.
