Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund Preview

Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Estadio Santiago Bernabéu

Date: 6th December 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Real Madrid were obvious favourites to advance as top of this group when the draw for the Champions League were announced with Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund expected to fight for the second position.

However, things have turned out a little different from expectations.

Los Merenges find themselves in second position, three points behind Tottenham who have been impressive so far this campaign.

Although they have secured qualification to the next round, this was largely due to their visitors’ poor showing in the competition this season.

Real Madrid are not having a good season as they have just three wins from their last eight games in all competitions.

Their defence has been the main culprit in this poor run as they have conceded 9 goals in those 8 games.

They do have a good home record with seven wins, four draws and just one loss in 12 home games.

Dortmund have not won a single game in the Champions League this season with their two points coming from two draws against APOEL who have a chance of beating them to the Europa League spot.

The Germans are sixth in the Bundesliga table after starting the season with five consecutive wins and clean sheets.

They have just one win from their last eight games in all competitions and they have also conceded 19 goals in those matches.

They have won two, lost three and drawn two of their last seven meetings with Real Madrid.
