Borussia Dortmund – Real Madrid (Champions League)

After a great victory at the weekend, Borussia Dortmund will now face Real Madrid at Signal Iduna Park, for the 2nd round of Group H of the Champions League. Dortmund come here motivated after an overwhelming victory on Saturday afternoon, trashing Borussia M’Gladbach by 6-1, and isolating themselves at the top of Bundesliga’s table. Real Madrid, on their turn, arrive here after a difficult away win against Alavés, where they continued to demonstrate the same poor form since the start of the season.

Borussia Dortmund are in the 3rd position in this Group H with no points yet, result of one defeat, with 1 goal scored and 3 goals conceded. Dortmund come here after another great result in the german league, trashing Borussia M’Gladbach by 6-1 and isolating themselves at the top of the league table, having now 16 points, 2 more than the 2nd placed Hoffenheim. The Black and Yellows are in great form this season in the Bundesliga, with 19 goals scored and only 1 conceded, although this great moment is not being reflected in the Champions League, with the germans ending up defeat in the 1st round of Group H at the hands of Tottenham, losing 3-1. Coach Peter Bosz has managed to do great job at the helm of Borussia Dortmund, with the germans showing a great defensive organization, which has even been a surprise factor in a team that usually concedes many goals per season, and look surprisingly stable despite playing a risky high defensive line.

Offensively they have been a devastating force, always very dangerous in creating chances through individual skill and by attacking down the wings, and are very strong in finishing scoring chances, with especial courtesy of Aubameyang, the Bundesliga’s top scorer, with 8 goals scored. The home factor is very important in this meeting, with the Black and Yellows being able to take advantage of the unconditional support of the Yellow Wall to beat the reigning champions, which are going through a bad moment of form, and this is probably the best time they will ever have to face Real Madrid, who have struggled so far this season. In their only 3 matches played at Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund scored 13 goals and conceded only 1 goal conceded.

In their last 5 official matches, Borussia Dortmund has a record of 4 wins and 1 defeat. This sequence of results started with a 0-0 draw against Freiburg. This result was followed by a 3-1 defeat against Tottenham, for the Champions League, a 5-0 victory over FC Koln, a 0-3 defeat against Hamburg, and in their last match, a 6-1 victory over Borussia M’Gladbach. Schurrle, Schmelzer, Erik Durm, Guerreiro, Rode and Marco Reus are all out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Burki – Piszczek, Sokratis, Bartra and Toljan – Dahoud, Weigl and Castro – Pulisic, Aubameyang and Philipp.

champions leagueReal Madrid, on their turn, are at the top of this Group H with 3 points, result of 1 victory, with 3 goals scored and no goals conceded. The Merengues won the first round of the group stages against APOEL and now have the same points than Tottenham, who beat Borussia Dortmund in the 1st round as well. However, this is not the same Real Madrid we are used to see, not the same Real Madrid of the last two seasons, with the Madrid side struggling both offensively and defensively. In La Liga, Zidane’s side are in the 5th position in the league table and already see Barcelona at the top of the table with 7 points in advance. Adding to this, Real Madrid are yet to win their first match at home, a very unusual factor.

Zidane’s men arrive here after another complicated victory, this time in a away match against Alavés, but were able to respond positively to the defeat at home against Real Betis. The Whites are showing some defensive difficulties, with weaknesses in avoiding individual errors, in defending attacks down the wings and in stopping opponents from creating chances. However, the most unusual factor in this team has been their lack of finishing power, with the Madrid side being able to create several scoring chances per game, since they are very strong in counter-attacks, offensive set pieces and are strong in long distance shots, but are being weak in finishing those scoring chances. In Germany they find again an opponent that they have been up against a few times in the past few years, and is usually a match with a lot of goals.

In their last 5 official games, Real Madrid has a record of 3 victories, 1 draw and 1 defeat. This sequence of results started with a 1-1 draw against Levante. This result was followed by 3-0 against APOEL, for the Champions League, a 1-3 win against Real Sociedad, a 0-1 defeat against Real Betis, and in their last round, a 1-2 win against Alavés. Benzema, Vallejo, Marcelo, Theo Hernández and Kovacic are all out, due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Navas – Carvajal, Varane, Ramos and Neto – Isco, Casemiro and Modric – Bale, Ronaldo and Asensio.

In their last 8 direct clashes, Borussia Dortmund has won 3 matches, drawing 3 and losing the remaining 2.
