Spanish and European champions Real Madrid have made a mixed start to their domestic campaign. However, on Tuesday night Los Blancos can take a break from their relative La Liga strugglers when they visit in-form German outfit Borussia Dortmund.
Dortmund have made a strong start to their Bundesliga campaign. However, Peter Bosz’s side suffered a 3-1 defeat at Tottenham in their group game of this year’s competition. Since the defeat at Spurs, BVB have recorded three straight league wins in the German top-flight, scoring 14 goals in the process.
The home side’s recent record in the Champions League is poor, as the German side have won just one of their last six games in the competition while suffering four defeats in their last five games.
BVB’s home record in the Champions League is a better, though, as they have won three of their last four outings in Europe’s elite competition. The German side have also scored two or more goals in their last three home outings at the Signal Iduna Park.
Real Madrid have struggled to hit top form this season, but that did not stop the European champions recording a comfortable 3-0 win over APOEL in their first group game of this seasons competition.
Zinedine Zidane’s team have looked strong in this competition in recent years. In fact, the visitors have won six of their last eight games in the Champions League, scoring two or more goals in seven of those eight games.
The European champions have also won four of their last five away games in the Champions League and have scored two or more goals in six of their last seven outings on their travels in this competition.
However, Forebet believes that the visitors good away form in the competition will end in this clash and the home side will record a victory.
