Borussia Dortmund v Atletico Madrid Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions

A free-scoring Borussia Dortmund side welcome Spain’s best defensive unit to Signal Iduna Park as Atletico Madrid travel to Germany.

Both sides have won their opening two matches in Group A and it looks like the next two games in the group will go a long way to deciding who finishes top. 

Latest odds 

Dortmund are flying this season, unbeaten in all competitions and rampant in front of goal.

Last season in the group stages their home form was poor, losing twice and only managing a draw against APOEL Nicosia, but this term they began extremely positively in front of their own fans with a 3-0 win over Monaco.

offer another home win at 6/4 (2.50) with the draw quoted at 12/5 (3.40). Atletico have only won two of their last away games in the Champions League and are priced at 2/1 (3.00).

Team news

Diego Costa is likely to return for Atletico Madrid who should also have Thomas Lemar back in the starting eleven. Dortmund look set to miss centre-back Manuel Akanji while Shijni Kagawa also continues to be out.

Preview

Having netted 22 goals in their last five matches, Dortmund are enjoying an exceptional scoring run. If any team can stop them, it is Atletico, who have shown themselves to be arguably the continent’s best defensively organised side.

However, they have not been quite as solid in the Champions League with just three clean sheets to their name in their last 11 games in the tournament.

Both teams to score has paid out in five of Atletico’s last seven Champions League games, while only paying out in two of their last eight La Liga matches.

Tips and predictions

Backing goals at both ends looks like a tempting option and the price of 4/5 (1.80) should be big enough for most people’s purposes. Dortmund have scored in ten of their 11 matches in all competitions this season, while Atleti have netted in ten of their 12 games. 

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
