Reason for Borussia Dortmund vs Sevilla Predictions
After three straight clean sheets, Borussia Dortmund’s defensive frailties were exposed in a 4-2 loss to Bayern Munich in the Saturday Bundesliga game at Allianz Arena. Having let go of a 2-0 lead in the heavy defeat, Dortmund will be hoping they don’t crumble like that again when they host Sevilla in the Champions League last 16 return leg clash. Dortmund leads 3-2 from the first leg and will bank heavily on Erling Haaland for goals, scoring six in the previous five matches. The loss to Bayern was Dortmund’s only defeat in the last six games, and they’re unbeaten in six Champions League games. They’ve scored two or more goals in five of their last six Champions League matches, and in their previous three, both sides have scored. Julian Brandt puts in 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.
Sevilla, on the other hand, hasn’t had it much smoother in the last few matches. In the previous week, they’ve been eliminated from the Copa del Rey, and a loss to Elche in La Liga has left them 10 points behind league leaders Atletico Madrid. They’ve suffered four defeats in the last five matches and will be trying not to get eliminated in a second competition in as many weeks. That will not be easy, though, looking at the Spaniards’ defensive form and the attacking returns the hosts have posted lately. They’ve failed to score in two of their last three matches, while in their previous game, they could only get a last-minute consolation as they lost 2-1 to Elche. Nemanja Gudelj a tremendous defensive midfielder who knows what he is doing at all times, he is strong, and it is difficult to take the ball away from this guy, he deserves praise. Alejandro Gomez enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and moves towards the goal, the opponent has problems.
It is going to be an exciting clash, as Sevilla is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. However, we believe Borussia Dortmund will meet the expectations and deliver a win.
We can expect a big fight between these two teams, and both of them should be able to score. We don’t believe either side will keep the clean sheet.
