Borussia Dortmund can't afford another defeat but it might be difficult to avoid as they are hosting Spanish giants Real Madrid at Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday in the second match of their Champions League group stage campaign. The two teams have met in the group stag last year as well and both matches ended 2-2. However, Real Madrid went on to win the trophy while Borussia Dortmund were stopped in the quarter-finals by AS Monaco. Dortmund have beaten Real Madrid in three of the last four matches on German soil.
Borussia Dortmund started their Champions League campaign with a 3-1 defeat at Tottenham, another loss would put them in a very precarious position in the qualification race. They have been doing a lot better in the Bundesliga so far this season, they won five matches and drew once while last weekend they hammered Borussia Monchengladbach 6-1. They still have a pretty long list of injured players, including Andre Schurrle, Marcel Schmelzer, Erik Durm, Raphael Guerreiro, Sebastian Rode and Marco Reus.
Real Madrid had an easy start in the Champions League group stage, they snatched a 3-0 victory at home over group minnows APOEL Nicosia. Things have not been going so well on the domestic front, they lost 1-0 at home against Betis in LaLiga last week after having already recorded two disappointing draws in front of their own fans. Karim Benzema, Jesus Vallejo, Marcelo, Theo Hernandez and Mateo Kovacic are injured and won't be able to play on Tuesday, but midfielder Toni Kroos might recover in time.
Dortmund: Burki - Piszczek, Sokratis, Bartra, Toljan - Dahoud, Weigl, Castro - Pulisic, Aubameyang, Philipp
Real: Navas - Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Nacho - Isco, Casemiro, Modric - Bale, Ronaldo, Asensio
My prediction: Real Madrid to win 2-1
Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:
Dortmund win - 3.00
Draw - 3.90
Real win - 2.30
