Borussia Dortmund vs Slavia Prague
This is a game from Group F between Borussia Dortmund and Slavia Prague which will be held at Signal Iduna Park.
To sum up the things- Borussia will have to win this game and to hope for a mistake by Inter against Barcelona. Borussia’s current form is very tough, you just don’t know what to expect by them- a performance like the one against Paderborn(3:3) which was totally disappointing or the way they performed against Dusseldorf in the last round(5:0). The defensive errors are too much by them during the start of the season.
Slavia Prague were the big underdogs in this group, they will finish expectedly at the last position, but still won 2 points, all of them as visitors against Inter and Barcelona. It’s true, they performed much better away from home than as hosts and here I don’t expect something different, even if they lose against Borussia. Slavia is too good in the Czech league, plus maybe it’s strange, but the team is undefeated as visitors during the whole season in all competitions. Borussia will try to stop this unbeaten row, but the Czechs are not an easy nut for sure! It’s not so hard to create chances against them, but it’s not easy to turn them into goals- Inter and Barca realized that.
Dortmund won in Prague with 0:2 after two goals by Hakimi, but in Dortmund, Slavia will be much more dangerous playing on counters looking for Dortmund defensive mistakes, because the hosts will try to score an opening goal in the first minutes. Dortmund doesn’t need a win with three/four or even more goal difference, just the three points and a mistake by Inter. Well, the odds for Dortmund are too low, about 1.25, so my first pick was +1.5 AH for Slavia as they are playing really good as visitors, but if Dortmund has a good day in attack, this pick will be seriously troubled. So, I am going with BTTS, as I am pretty sure Dortmund will find a way to break Slavia’s defense at least one time, but the hosts are also vulnerable to receive a goal- Slavia players know how to use their chances and the odds are good enough for this option- yesterday were 2.05 when I played it, now it's 1.90 in bet365 for BTTS!
