Dortmund vs Real Madrid 2016 Preview And Prediction
Real Madrid versus Borussia Dortmund feels like a Ferrari and an Aston Martin meeting on a racetrack. Dortmund are already in 5th gear and speeding around the track. They've won 4 straight while outscoring their opponents 20-2. That is not a typo. Real, on the other hand, stalled in neutral this past week drawing at home to Villareal and then being pegged back very late at Las Palmas on Saturday.
Dortmund vs Real Madrid Odds On William Hill
Ronaldo was subbed off when his team was up 2-1 only to see his team concede an equalizer. Needless to say, that CR7 was not pleased that he could not lead Real to victory from the bench. Dortmund are pushing all the right buttons at the moment while Real Madrid have a sour taste in their mouths and desperate for win before their second Champions League game this season.
Dortmund vs Real Madrid Betting Prediction
BET DRAW (+280) | WILLIAM HILL
Despite Madrid and Dortmund's shared hunger for victory, a draw may satisfy both parties this early in the competition. Both these sides are expected to advance to the knockout stage. Madrid the defending champions understand more than anyone the importance of finishing first in group.
Zidane, with his side yet to impress this season, needs to approach this dangerous tie with caution. Real should be happy with a point and I see them sharing the honors midweek.
I am reminded of last season when the Galacticos had the dangerous and in form Paris St. Germain in their group. Having come out of the gates flat last year as well, they were able to survive their trip to the Parc des Prince and come away with a valuable point.
Zidane has to figure out a new way for his team to defend after the recent injury to Casemiro. He provided the shield in front of their back 4 and without him they look a little fragile.
Real Madrid The German Slayers
Real Madrid have carved a bloody path through Germany on route to winning 2 of the last 3 Europen titles. In 2015 they overcome a 2-0 deficit after the first leg to knockout the plucky Wolfsburg. The year prior they easily dealt with Schalke.
But by far the most impressive feat was Ancelotti's 2013 version of Madrid with did the hat trick in the round of 16 over Schalke, then elimated Dortmund in the quaterfinals before ultimately dismantling competition favorites and defending champions Bayern Munich, beating them 5-0 over 2 legs, including a 4-0 battering at the Allianz
