Dortmund – APOEL : Preview & Prediction
An interesting match in this day of Wednesday is the one played by Borussia Dortmund and APOEL for a new date in the Champions League (group stage).
In my opinion, the German box starts as a favorite due to the collective and offensive potential that it possesses, which usually increases when it acts in the Signal Iduna Park. For this reason and knowing that the Cypriots are weak in defense, we advise you to play a few euros to the bet “Borussia Dortmund will score in the first half”. He is expected to come out with everything to win his first match in the tournament and take off the bad run he has.
Take into account that Borussia Dortmund only has 1 point in the group, having to play all or nothing in this presentation. If he does, he will have to take on Tottenham at home and against Real Madrid at the Bernabéu to get the miracle of the classification. Of course, his defensive performance has been more than irregular to yield many goals in his last presentations. He comes from losing 4-2 to Hannover on Saturday for the Bundesliga.
On the other hand do not forget that the German team has played only 1 game at home for the Champions League, which was negative for their aspirations after losing 1-3 against Real Madrid. It is expected that the difference in level between one squad and another is crucial to achieve a win that gives confidence to the squad.
Continuing with the analysis, you should know that APOEL has not scored any points in the competition after losing the 3 matches they have played so far. It is a combative team but too fragile compared to the 3 rivals of weight that it touched to him in the raffle. His goal will be to populate the midfield to stop the offensive potential of his opponent and not give up one or two goals in the first 20 ‘minutes of play.
And finally we tell you that the Cypriots lost their first start in the competition, which was against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu (3-0 after the final whistle and 1-0 from the initial stage).
After all that I said the game for the bet “Borussia Dortmund scored in the first half” due to the following reasons: First, because the German box is superior to its rival in every way, being able to demonstrate it from the initial whistle. For this reason, he is expected to handle the ball and get a goal either by a punctual or basted play. Second, because the boys of coach Bozs will go out with everything to recover from the fall against Hannover by the Bundesliga, being possible to bombard the area of the Cypriots. And third because APOEL is not a reliable 11 on defense, showing it by losing 3-0 its first start against Real Madrid. Faced with this reality and knowing that the visit yielded a bit in the first half against the meringues, we believe that this pattern can be repeated once again.
