Bet: Total Goals by Home Team over 1,5

Even with some slumps in the results Real Madrid remain unbeaten in all competitions this season. Despite quite pessimistic sports betting predictions, this weekend Los Blancos managed to get 1 valuable point at Camp Nou. Zidane’s team saved the day due to a late goal by Ramos (1-1). So owing to this draw Madrid keep a 6-point gap between them and Barcelona in La Liga standings. As for the Champions League campaign, Los Blancos somehow contrived to draw with Legia (3-3), that’s why they are now 2 points behind Dortmund, though the betting experts expected them to dominate the group.

At the start of the season the sports betting companies considered Borussia Dortmund to be a very dangerous side in both Bundesliga and the Champions League. Nevertheless, Die Schwarzgelben are from their best run of form. They definitely lack consistency and this led them to a series of defeats and draws in Germany. So Tuchel’s side slid down to the 6th place with 9 points deficit from the leading Leipzig. However, they sit atop their group in the Champions League with 4 wins and 1 draw. Although the betting companies are not sure the BVB will retain the pole position.

While choosing a bet you should take into account the fact that this fixture will be decisive for both teams. They have already secured their places in the knockout stage, but it’s still unknown who will get the first spot. These two clubs met earlier this season and Madrid were held to a 2-2 draw in Dortmund. But they need to get a victory a Bernabeu in order to leapfrog their opponent. The betting experts remind that Bale, Kroos and Morata are all ruled out through injuries for Los Blancos. At the same time Tuchel also have some selection concerns as Burki, Guerreiro, Kagawa and Sahin will miss out.

It is absolutely fair that the bookmakers give their preference to the host: Real Madrid – 1,85, Draw – 3,85, Borussia Dortmund – 4,00. If we take a look at the head-to-head stats we’ll see that in the last 3 matches at Bernabeu Madrid got 2 wins and 1 draw. They scored 7 goals and managed to keep 2 clean sheets in these 3 games. So the bet “Total Goals by Home Team over 1,5” (1,70) seems to make it through. Besides, you can try to bet on “Both Teams to Score and Total Goals over 2,5” as at this moment Real’s back 4 look a bit shaky. There is also a good option “Real or Draw and Total Goals over 2,5” (2,10).
