Dortmund Demand Respect

Dortmund have beaten Real three times on the spin in front of their own fans and are in rare form. In contrast the Spanish giants are in a sticky patch.

Tuesday sees the game of the Champions League so far and it doesn’t come at a great moment for Real Madrid.

We should snap up the bet price 5/2 available with Bet365 on Borussia Dortmund winning with both teams to score.

Everything was going swimmingly for Zinedine Zidane right up until a few days ago. Now the holders have dropped La Liga points to Villarreal and Las Palmas consecutively with Ronaldo having a strop when substituted on Saturday night.

In truth the warning sides were there a fortnight ago when Real relied on goals in the 89th and 94th minutes to avoid an ignominious home defeat to Sporting Lisbon.

Perhaps this wouldn’t matter if they weren’t playing such fearsome opponents. But in Dortmund they face a side who have beaten them three times on the spin at home in this competition - all within the last four years.

Even more pertinently, the Germans have scored an astonishing 20 times in their last four outings and have gone a club record equalling 24 home games unbeaten in the Bundesliga.

Forget who has the most pedigree and back the form at the Westfalenstadion.
