Borussia Dortmund vs Atletico Madrid MatchGains Match Preview, Soccer Prediction, and Betting Tips
This game brings two of this competition’s biggest names together as they look to win their group. They have both started the competition well, and it seems like the next two fixtures between them would certainly determine who would win their group.
Atletico Madrid have extra motivation to reach the final this season as it would be played on their home turf. They have responded well to that possibility by winning their first two games so far and even securing an away win at Monaco something they were unable to do last season.
Borussia Dortmund on the other hand, are having one of the best starts to a season. They have won both games in this competition to nil, domestically; they have placed themselves in a position to win the Bundesliga as they are currently 3 points clear at the top of the league table.
Atletico Madrid could come at their German hosts with a typical defensive approach as Diego Simeone never wants to lose games like this. The Spaniards may have not reached the knockout stages last season, but they have a good record in this competition. They have fallen to defeat in just 3 occasions in their last 25 outings and they have kept 16 clean sheets in those games.
Dortmund have also been a lot more conservative in Europe. They have scored 4 goals from just 8 shots on target, but they remain only one of a few teams who haven’t conceded a goal so far in this competition this term.
