Atletico Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Nobody could have predicted to see Atletico Madrid demolished in Dortmund two weeks ago. But for Diego Simeone and his boys, this is only an extra motive to rise to the challenge and be even better. They will have an opportunity to get even with the Millionaires and get back into the race for the first place in group A.
Leganes made quite of a surprise when they managed to take one point this Saturday against Atletico, 1:1. Meanwhile, Dortmund continued their excellent run and won in Wolfsburg, 0:1.
What still holds the Madridians in the La Liga title race, are the fantastic performances at their Wanda Metropolitan stadium. So far they recorded five wins and only one draw since the season started, and managed to keep clean sheets on four occasions. But the big problem ae games outside Madrid, and it appears that Atletico doesn’t have good chemistry once playing in front of the rival’s crowd. As usual, we don’t see many goals in their matches, and the only one in the previous six which went above 2.5 scores was the one played in Dortmund. The hosts have many issues with injured players, and that might affect their game this Tuesday. But, the ultimate goal is going to be a win, and nothing less than that.
Did you know that Borussia has 18 straight games without a defeat? Lucien Favre found the right tactics and created confidence for these young boys, who are now demolishing everything that stands in their way. The last triumph came against Wolfsburg, and Dortmund showed there, that they know to handle situations in which they don’t need to rush into the offense, but instead calmly protect the lead. From game to game this young and talented team grows, and the only thing Favre needs to look on is their mental stability. Now, when speaking about Dortmund, we need to say that they play offensive football and that 9 of their last 10 matches saw over 2.5 goals. But the fascinating thing is that they haven’t allowed a single goal in the previous three road trips. In general, Dortmund had four straight wins away from home with a goal difference of 13:2.

Mario Goetze, and Abdou Diallo are questionable, same as Manuel Akanji and Jeremy Toljan.

Atletico Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund | Top Betting Tip: Atletico (2-1)
This match is very important for the hosts, and they will do anything to win. First of all, they need to do it to regain their shaken confidence. Second, with this win, they are back in the game for the top spot in this group. Meanwhile, Borussia has a big derby against Bayern Munich next Saturday, and that game is much more important for them. So expect some changes in the lineup, because Favre’s goal this season is the title in Bundesliga. With a win against the Bavarians, chances for that are much, much higher. It is why we propose to bet on the hosts here. About the efficiency, Atletico will have to play a bit more offensive than usual. Otherwise, Dortmund is going to impose their own tempo. The odds for over 2.5 goals are excellent, and this is something even more sure for us, than our suggestion for host’s win. In the end, our final prediction, Atletico Madrid – Borussia Dortmund 2:1.
