Borussia Dortmund vs Sevilla: Prediction and Betting Tips
Dortmund to focus on the UEFA Champions League
After a heartbreaking loss at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga at the weekend that saw their 2-0 lead turn into a 4-2 defeat, The BVB are now in the sixth position and four points away from a UCL spot.
They have to recover from that Bayern loss quickly if they want to defend their win away in Sevilla in the first leg and qualify for the next round.
In the first leg match, Dortmund were not the better side when it comes to possession of the ball as they had just 38%, but they won because of the prolific goal-scoring efficacy of their attacker Erling Haaland who scored two goals in that match.
Sevilla have full focus on this game
After losing to Dortmund in the first leg, Sevilla have now lost four matches in five games in all competitions. Coach Julen Lopetegui rested nine players in their last match against Elche where they lost 2-1, mainly to have fresh players for the Dortmund clash.
That shows that the Spaniards mean business coming into this game. They have conceded ten goals in their last four matches including the first leg game against Dortmund. Lopetegui has to adjust his defensive tactics as they can’t afford to let in goals if they want to qualify for the next round.
- Dortmund haven’t lost at home in six matches in all competitions
- Dortmund have scored every time they played at home this season in all competitions
- Sevilla have lost their last two away games
- Sevilla haven’t lost away from home in the UEFA Champions League this season
Borussia Dortmund vs Sevilla Prediction
If we compare the two teams’ form in their last five matches, we can see that Dortmund are in better form winning four out of five matches while Sevilla have won just one of five matches.
These teams have met three times before, each team winning once and the third one ending in a draw. In four of the last five matches that Dortmund were involved in over 2.5 goals were scored and during the season over 2.5 goals were scored in Dortmund’s 90% of matches.
Dortmund’s matches has seen a lot of goals lately and we think Sevilla have no other choice but to go all out and try to score which will leave Haaland with acres of space to enjoy his favorite hobby of scoring. We predict over 2.5 total match goals.
