APOEL vs Dortmund by Pacifier

Apoel were regarded as the underdogs in this group and that has been their position so far with two defeats in two games, zero goals scored and six conceded. They are unlikely to make the third spot unless they can spring a few surprises along the way. They have two wins from their last two games however after going four games without a win and will hope that momentum last to get something from this tie.


Dortmund are in a must win situation here and are likely to take a few risks to secure all three points in this game. They have been made overwhelming favourites by the bookmakers @ 1.25 for the win and they should feature on a lot of accumulator bets. They were unbeaten in the league before their 3-2 home loss to leipzig where they had Sokratis sent off but he be back in the heart of the defense for this game alongside Batra. Dortmund are still dealing with a long injury list with seven players still on the treatment table. The likes of Rode, Schurrle, Reus, Schmelzer, Erik Durm, Raphael Guerreiro remain unavailable for the guests.


Dortmund are in dire need of all three points and should get it here without much fuss but their high defense line makes them vulnerable to counter which was the case against Tottenham and Real Madrid and also last weekend against Leipzig. They are unlikely to change though and should look to outplay Apoel here and probably get that much needed early goal. I anticipate a very open first half-time here and an early goal could really spark things up in this game, so I go for at least two goals to be scored in the first half-time and we could even see more than two goals. The odds quoted for this market represent excellent value to me and would have paid out in four of Dortmund last six game and in three of their five away games this season including their away game at Tottenham that ended 2-1 at half-time.
