Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund Match Preview
Real Madrid will look to finish their Champions League campaign on a high while the visitors will look to bag a Europa League place making this Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund fixture at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday, December 6 an interesting one, so read the betting preview, betting tips and predictions for this game.
Madrid will finish second in Group H, whatever is the result in this Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund fixture. The defending Champions are second in the group (10 pts, W3, D1, L1) and are three behind table-toppers Tottenham Hotspur. Even a win against Dortmund will not be able to give Madrid the top spot because of their inferior record versus Tottenham in this campaign. The defending Champions had defeated Dortmund 3-1 away from home in the group while thumping minnows APOEL Nicosia both home (3-0) and away (0-6). It was only against Tottenham that they faltered, drawing at home (1-1) and losing away (1-3). That loss at Wembley has all but ruled out their chances of topping the table.
Dortmund had a bizarre season, to say the least, in the Champions League. The Bundesliga side are currently third in the group (2 pts, W0, D2, L3) with no wins and already out of contention for the knock-out places. The only hope they have is to qualify for the Europa League with only a mathematical chance left for APOEL Nicosia to overtake Dortmund. The German side drew 1-1 with Nicosia both home and away, lost 1-3 and 1-2 to Tottenham Hotspur and 1-3 to Real Madrid. A win over Madrid in this Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund fixture should seal them the Europa qualification while a loss or draw will make it complicated. Considering their recent poor form in all competitions with just one win in 11 matches (W1, D5, L5), it may not be a surprise if they lose.
