Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund are about to engage in a furious battle for the first spot in Group F of the Champions League.
Right now the German team is in a leading position in the group, having two points advantage in front of the Los Blancos. They are about to face a difficult task though, because their final game in the group will be played at the Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid.
After the two teams shared the points in Germany, now Real Madrid will seek a win to guarantee itself the first spot in the group. For Borussia Dortmund even the draw will be enough to remain on the top.
Gareth Bale is the big absence in Real Madrid’s squad for this game. The Welsh international is still injured, so Zinedine Zidane will have to look to other options once again. Alvaro Morata, Danilo and Fabio Coentrao are back in training for the reigning European champions.
Dortmund’s manager Thomas Tuchel can’t rely on his №1 Roman Bürki, who is out until 2017 with a broken hand. Neven Subotic and Nuri Sahin are injured as well. Raphael Guerrero, Shinji Kagawa and Joo-Ho Park are still doubtful, while Sven Bender is fit again to play.
We should expect a dynamic and interesting game between these two teams. It’s a tradition for Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund to always offer us football spectacles. The same thing happened in Germany as well, where the game ended with a four goals scored - 2-2. Now we have expectations for another huge show as well.
Prediction: We expect Real Madrid to win this. The Spanish giants are aware that they need to do the job, if they want to win the first place in the group. Their biggest advantage here is playing at home, which is always a big deal in games like these. If you don’t want to bet on a winner, pick the Over 2.5 goals for this one. These two teams always score a lot to each other.
