Borussia and Real play their seventh head-to-head in past six season.
Borussia Dortmund take on the visitors Real Madrid in the round 2 match of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played at Signal Iduna Park in Tuesday, September 27th.
Borussia started the group stage with excellent 6-0 away win at Legia and don’t slow down their pace ever since, taking wins in three following matches with 14-2 on aggregate. The Black and Yellow defeated Darmstadt, 6-0, Wolfsburg, 5-1, and Freiburg, 3-1 in these Bundesliga matches. Tuchel’s men show outstanding level of football with swift attacks with unexpected decisions. Borussia Dortmund are undefeated at home in 2016, taking 12 wins in 15 matches played.
While Borussia improved with the start of the Champions League, Real Madrid suffer from the decline in recent couple of weeks. They took 2-1 win over Sporting with poor level of football showed, followed it with 2-0 win over Espanyol who never really offer a battle to Madrid and drew two recent game, 1-1 with Villarreal at home and 2-2 at Las Palmas. It’s hard to imagine what Borussia’s blazing attacking line can do with Real, who concede two from Las Palmas. At the same time, Real are unbeaten in their last 19 matches in a row in all competitions.
Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid faced one another six times in past five years. The German side has advantage in these head-to-heads with three wins, two draws and one draw recorded with Los Merengues. Considering recent results of the teams, we should expect the hosts to be closer to a victory.
Prediction for the match: Borussia to win with 0.0 Asian handicap.
