Here are the best Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund odds and our Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid Predictions and Betting Tips:
Best Odds Home Win: 3.00 with bet365
Best Odds Away Win: 2.35 with Unibet
Best Odds Draw: 3.8 with Unibet
Despite their inconsistent form in recent weeks, we can’t look past a Real Madrid win at 2.35 with Unibet. Below you can read the reasons for our Borussia Dortmund vs. Real Madrid predictions.
We expect Real Madrid to Win 3-2 at 19.0 with Bet365
Real Madrid are the slight favourites for this match with odds of 2.35 with Unibet, although it won’t be easy for them on Tuesday at one of Europe’s most difficult and hostile away venues.
The European Champions are expected to win every match they play, but in recent weeks they have been unconvincing and they also have a number of injury problems to deal with at the moment.
However, if there is one thing we know about Real Madrid it is that they often seem to come up with their best form in the face of adversity. They are truly a team who can never be written off in any moment.
On Tuesday they will feel they have a point to prove, and we feel that they will do so and take the three points.
Cristiano Ronaldo in particular has had his critics recently. The four time Ballon d’Or winner has yet to score in La Liga this year. We’re backing him to silence the doubters and score the first goal in Germany at a well-priced 4.6 with Unibet.
This type of match could suit Zinedine Zidane’s side. Dortmund need to win after losing their opener away to Tottenham Hotspur, which will leave gaps for Madrid to exploit on the counter attack.
For this reason we are forecasting goals. Last season both group stages matches ended 2-2, and a 3-2 Real Madrid win could be a good bet at 19.0 with Bet365.
This is the match of the round along with Atletico Madrid vs. Chelsea, and is arguably the hardest to call. We would recommend backing there to be goals, and lots of them. Madrid to win and both teams to score is priced at 3.4 with Bet365.
Borussia Dortmund are the team in form coming into the match with three successive wins, including a 6-1 thrashing of Monchengladbach on Saturday. Madrid were 2-1 winners over Alaves on Saturday, after a shock 1-0 home loss to Real Betis three days previously.
Madrid haven’t yet hit their form of last season, and have struggled this season at the Bernabeu particularly. However, away from home they are still strong and have won all their games on the road so far in 2017/18.
Real Madrid Form: WLWWDD
Since losing their group stage opener to Tottenham Hotspur two weeks ago, Dortmund have been in great form with three successive wins, scoring 14 goals in the process.
Borussia Dortmund Form: WWWLDW
Borussia Dortmund host Real Madrid at the Westfalenstadion on Tuesday night. The two sides have met on numerous occasions in recent Champions League campaigns, including a memorable semi-final in 2013.
Madrid are in the midst of an injury crisis, with Marcelo the latest addition to the treatment table after sustaining a bicep injury. Benzema, Kovacic, Theo Hernandez and Toni Kroos are also out.
Dortmund are boosted by the return of Julian Weigl, who scored on his first game back from an ankle injury at the weekend. New manager Peter Bosz has more or less his full squad to choose from on Tuesday.
