Dortmund – Sevilla : Preview & Prediction
In the first leg of the knockout stages of the Champions League, Borussia Dortmund was far from unanimous. Arriving in Spain with just one success in their last six Bundesliga days, BVB did not arrive as favorites. However, the German team made a very strong impression, winning on the Andalusian lawn (3-2). Dortmund was able to benefit in particular from the XXL performance of Erling Haaland, author of a double and an assist. A very good result which puts Borussia Dortmund in the best shape before the return leg. Since then, Jadon Sancho’s teammates have won two of their last three league days. They only lost to Bayern Munich last weekend (4-2). The current sixth in the Bundesliga can therefore have great ambitions on the eve of this return match.
Already beaten in the first leg, Sevilla FC will have to achieve the feat at Signal Iduna Park. Chaining the successes before the first meeting of this round of 16 of the Champions League, the same can not be said for the Andalusian club. Julen Lopetegui’s men have lost two of their last three La Liga days. They have also just bowed on the lawn of Elche (2-1). To make matters worse, Sevilla FC got out at the gates of the Copa del Rey final against FC Barcelona. Despite his first leg victory (2-0), Lucas Ocampos’ teammates missed the boat at Camp Nou (3-0). The current fourth in the Spanish league may therefore still have a lot of trouble against Borussia Dortmund. The dynamics are reversed, Borussia is on pole to qualify.
