Champions League: Dortmund vs Sporting

Dortmund vs Sporting Betting Tip and Predictions. In the Round 4, in Group F, of the UEFA Champions League, Borussia Dortmund host Sporting at Westfalenstadion. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Dortmund vs Sporting.


Dortmund started this season in the Champions League very good and after three rounds they are sharing the first position with Real Madrid. The match against Sporting is very important for home side and if they managed to take three points they will practically secured their place in the knock-out phase. In the first round they smashed Legia away 0-6, after that they played against Real Madrid and that match was finished without winner 2-2, while in the previous round they beat Sporting in Lisbon 1-2. Home team will have big support on this match and they will be fully motivated to beat once again the same opponent and keep the first position in group. Aubameyang, who scored 10 goals this season in Bundesliga and Champions League, is in the great form and he could make many troubles to Sporting’s defence. Dortmund have some problems with absences, but the good thing for their coach Thomas Tuchel is that Raphaël Guerreiro and Gonzalo Castro are both recovered from an injury.

Sporting didn’t make the good performance in the UEFA Champions League this season and if they lose the match in Dortmund, they will be without chance to go through. This will be their last chance to do something in this competition and they have to play attacking. Their coach is optimistic and he believes that they can make good result against Borussia Dortmund. Their manager Jorge Jesus said for : “We can still go through. Tomorrow, decisions will be made about us going through or not. Everyone who knows football can see that we are in a very tough group. I believe the team knows what it has to do tomorrow. Dortmund are also suffering in the Bundesliga and of course we will try to win.” However, if they failed to qualify in the next phase, they have decent chances to stay at the 3rd position and continue to play in the Europa League.
