Europe: Champions League - group stage – Round 6
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
We greatly regret but the match between Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund at the final stage of the Champions League won’t be the battle for the high positions. Yes, the game is still important from the tournament point of view but Borussia didn’t manage to dictate its rules to Real and Tottenham for the battle for getting into the spring part of the Champions League and German club has to fight against APOEL for the place at the Europe League. Real won’t probably be able to move Tottenham from the first place at the tournament bracket.
Despite the fact that the royal club is playing now below its skills and abilities during the first half of the season Real has easily ensured itself the place at the play off of the Champions League. The team of Zinedine Zidane is taking now the second line at the tournament bracket being ahead of their rival with 8 points. A lot of people say that the Spanish club is experiencing some problems in attack and are blaming Zidane in squad conservatism and lack of foresight but Real can be judged only when the current season will be finished.
But Peter Bosz is now experiencing serious problems and we doubt that the specialist from Holland is able to cope with them. He has lost the Champions League and all understand this fact well (the draw result with APOEL is proving this fact) but at the championship Borussia is able to improve the situation. What about the problems of the German club it should be noted here the weak form of the leaders of the team and uncertainty of the head coach concerning the framework of the team that will be used during this season.
Real won’t force the events but thanks to recent failure with Athletic in frames of the championship (0:0) the Spanish club will try to improve the situation by the victory at the Champions League in order to shame its critics. Borusia even in the case of its defeat has great chances to get into the Europa League.
Real to win - odds 1.52 5DIMES
According to the results of the matches with participation of Borussia in frames of the German championship the club from Dortmund can’t play from defense and this fact is leading us to the bet made of resultative match in which both teams will score some goals.
Out tip: both teams to score (yes) - odds 1.5 Bet365
