Borussia Dortmund vs Atlético Madrid | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Two of the biggest favorites for clinching the first two places in Group A, will meet at Signal-Iduna Park. It is going to be also a clash of two different football philosophies. One which prefers fast and furious attacks, and other, which relies upon defense and tactics.
With two wins apiece Dortmund and Atletico have both six points and substantial advantage over other rivals. Whoever wins today, will most certainly secure the knockout-stage. The Millionaires were convincing in the domestic championship, with a win on the road over Stuttgart 0:4. Atletico played 1:1 against Villarreal in Spanish La Liga.
After a long time, Borussia finally has a team which just might do something astonishing. To be honest, we hadn’t seen such a group of talented boys since Ajax back in 1995. In each every position there is a youngster whose limits are unknown. The financial situation in the club is excellent and they don’t have to sell the best players anymore, and even if they experience some shortage, one transfer will secure them enough money for two years. The coach Lucien Favre is a guy who likes to attack, and this team suits him perfectly, and that is why Dortmund plays games with a high number of goals. For example, the latest six finished with over 2.5 goals. At home, they scored at least three times in every event since the season opener, and the total goal difference is 21:5 after five meetings. Paco Alcacer is playing the football of his life, and the small Spaniard is doing wonders on the court.
Well, we expected more from Diego Simeone and his boys. Two wins more at least in the domestic championship. But still, Atletico is just two points behind the first place in La Liga, and that is something they could easily take care of. Like always, they play slow football, with lots of fouls in the midfield.It appears that many players who were playing in this year’s World Cup are still searching their right form, and for now Atletico looks a bit sleepy. However, they have 8 games in a row without a loss, and in fact, the only loss this season came against Celta Vigo back on the 1st of September. Six of their seven road trips ended with under 2.5 goals, so expect a similar approach in Dortmund.
Latest Team News
Manuel Akanji is injured, and he will be out for at least two more weeks. Jeremy Toljan and Marcel Schmelzer are doubtful, while Kagawa and Wolf should appear this Wednesday. For now, Atletico doesn’t have any players who might skip this match for any reason.
These two sides had four H2H matches throughout history. The total record is on Dortmund’s side since they have two wins and one draw and loss apiece.
Odds and Predictions
The bookmakers are expecting a close game, which is why they gave odds like these. Borussia is a slight favorite, and their win is set at 2.50. A draw is 3.40, while Atletico’s victory is multiplying your stake 3 times.
Borussia Dortmund vs Atlético Madrid | Top Betting Tip: Dortmund (2-1)
Regardless of the fact which is their opponent, Borussia will always attack them at home. That was the scenario when they had much weaker teams, and there will be no difference now. It appears that confidence is on a high level, and not only that, but they have perfect chemistry on and off the court. With all due respect towards Atletico, but we just can’t see in which way the Spaniards can take all three points from here. If you still have some doubts about it, try with a double chance, Borussia or draw, and that should be ok. Now, about the efficiency. Dortmund’s constant attacking will provoke many opportunities, and Atletico also has enormous attacking potential which will for sure give some results. Over 2.5 goals is our first suggestion, and the second one is both teams to score. The final outcome, Borussia Dortmund – Atletico Madrid 2:1.
