Borussia Dortmund vs Lazio Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for Borussia Dortmund vs Lazio Predictions
Dortmund has nine points from their three games and, after this match, ends the group with a trip to bottom side Zenit St Petersburg. The group began with Dortmund losing 3-1 away to Lazio, but they have bounced back with three straight wins. Zenit lost 2-0 in Dortmund, and then the Bundesliga side recorded two 3-0 wins over Club Brugge. Erling Haaland is in top form again, scoring in each Champions League game with five in total. Dortmund has lost two of their last three home games, and although the defeat by Bayern Munich was expected, Saturday’s one by FC Koln wasn’t. They are the only two losses in their last eight home matches in all competitions. In the Champions League, Dortmund has only one loss in the previous ten, which was to Tottenham. Axel Witsel commands midfield, and the Belgian international does not allow the opponent much action in the middle. There is also Julian Brandt, who puts confident performances and plays without error. In the beginning, he had offers from some bigger clubs, but a move to Borussia Dortmund proved to be a perfect choice. Sancho creates a lot of trouble for opponents on the right-wing. It’s hard to keep this guy in the one-on-one game, he has fantastic dribbles, and many teams are interested in signing the English international.
Lazio is in second place, and a win here will see them into the last sixteen. They lead Club Brugge by four points, and the Belgian side travels to Italy for their final match of this group. Lazio’s strength is the home pitch as they recorded two 3-1 victories over Borussia Dortmund and Zenit St Petersburg. Away from home, they have had two 1-1 draws at Zenit and Brugge and haven’t won an away match in a Champions League group since 2003. Recent seasons have been spent in the Europa League, and away form was terrible there, with seven losses in eight over the past two years. The weekend saw them lose 3-1 at home to Udinese (in the bottom half of Serie A), and only two of their last five games have been won with a league placing of ninth. Ciro Immobile was the best scorer in Serie A last season with 35 goals, and he scored the most goals in Europe, a great player who does not spare the opponent’s net. All praise for him. Sergej Milinković-Savić plays perfectly without a mistake, he is strong, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy, and many clubs are interested in his arrival.
It will be an exciting clash in which both sides will have a chance to win. However, the guests have to make significant changes in their team, and that could be a chance for the host to come to victory.
We can expect a great fight between these two teams, and both should be able to score. We don’t think the nets will remain still after 90 minutes.
