Real Madrid VS Borussia Dortmund
Wednesday (07/12/2016)
20:45 (WAT)

It is a battle for supremacy in Group F as Real Madrid host Borussia Dortmund on the matchday 6 of the Champions League on Wednesday evening, 7th December 2016.

Borussia Dortmund are currently top of the Group F with 13 points from their 5 matches, while Madrid are 2 points behind them. Both teams have already secured their qualification into the knockout stages as the two other teams in the group Sporting CP and Legia Warsaw has no chance to catch them.

A draw will be good for Dortmund to keep hold on to the pole position, while Madrid must win to leapfrog the Bundesliga giants. The head-to-head suggests that the Los Blancos are favourites for this fixture and have a good chance to come out with a win.


Head-to-head Stats
The teams played an entertaining 2-2 draw in the first leg at the Signal Iduna Park. Madrid took lead the twice, both early in each halves, but Dortmund fought back brilliantly to cancel the deficit at the closing stages of each half. Cristiano Ronaldo and Varane scored for Real, while Aubameyang and Andre Schurrle scored the goals for Dortmund.

Real Madrid are unbeaten in their 5 home matches against Dortmund in the Champions League, winning 4 along with a draw. The latest two are wins and that too with clean sheets.

Moreover, Madrid have an incredible record at home against German teams as they won in 22 of the 29 clashes, with only 4 ending in draw and 3 in defeats.

Dortmund on the other hand, managed only 1 win from their 11 visits to meet LaLiga teams, while they drew 4 and lost 6.

Prediction
On current form, both teams can be considered pretty even. Dortmund had a difficult start to the season with a number of injuries to key players. As most of them have returned to full fitness, they are playing like a much effective unit.

Madrid will be without their star player Gareth Bale, but they are a team capable of adjusting well as the fringe players like Lucas Vasquez and Marco Asensio have shown that they can fit in well.

This will be an evenly contested match with the quality match winners on each side. But we are trusting Madrid’s home record in Champions League against German teams. We will be able to see a higher number of goals with the hosts edging out a narrow win in the end.

This match should not and can`t creat any tention in the sense that both teams have nothing to prove anymore.
They might be fielding partly their 2nd eleven which may kill the joy of the fans.
In any case, a winner must emerge!

I go for Borrusia Dortmund on this one, they have the momentum and the potential - Real Madrid has been riding on their luck for way too long, Zidane has made his point, best they can actually get from this match will be a draw
