Sporting vs Dortmund Betting Tip and Predictions. In the Round 3 of the UEFA Champions League, in Group F, Sporting host Dortmund at Estádio José Alvalade. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Sporting vs Dortmund.
Sporting stand at the 3rd position in the Group F of the Champions League, behind Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund. Their main goal is to try to reach the knock-out phase of this competition or at least to finish at the 3rd position and continue to play in the Europa League. Home team have very tough group, because Real Madrid and Dortmund are favorites to go through, but Sporting believe that they can make good performance and qualify in the 1/16 finals. In the first round they had a lead of 0-1 against Real Madrid, but they were unlucky and conceded 2 goals in the last few minutes and lost that game. After that they have played against Legia and beat them 2-0. The match against Dortmund is very important for home team and if they lose this game, it would be very hard for them to reach the next phase. Sporting play very good at home this season and in the all 5 matches in all competitions they have managed to win all games and every match they scored at least two goals.
Home side have almost full squad available, except midfielder A. Silva who is out due to injury. Visitors have big problems with injuries and few very important players will not play. Papastathopoulos, Durm and Schmelzer are all out, while Schurlle, Guerreiro, Bender and Castro are all doubtful and probably all of them will start the match on the bench.
Sporting vs Dortmund Predicted Lineups
Sporting: Patricio, J. Pereira, Coates, Semedo, Zeegelaar, W. Carvalho, Martins, Elias, B. Ruiz, L. Markovic, Dost.
Dortmund: Burki, Piszczek, Bartra, Ginter, Passlack, Weigl, Pulisic, Kagawa, M. Gotze, Dembele, Aubameyang.
Sporting vs Dortmund Prediction
Home side will be fully motivated to make good result upfront their supporters and that’s their only hope, because on away ground it will be much harder, so they will have to attack. Visitors are playing very good in the attack, but their defence is very shaky in the recent period. I expect interesting match between Sporting vs Dortmund and goals in both nets.
