Atletico Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund Preview

Atletico Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Wanda Metropolitano

Date: 6th November 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

The last game between these teams was expected to be a very tight affair, but the final scoreline suggests that it was anything but.

Borussia Dortmund defeated the Spaniards 4-0 as Lucien Favre continues to build a young and exciting team to watch.

That was the first time Atletico Madrid had conceded that many goals in a single game under Diego Simeone and they will be looking for some revenge in this game.

Atletico are not having the best of seasons.

They drew 1-1 with Leganes at the weekend to keep them 4 points behind La Liga leaders Barcelona.

Atletico are set to do better in the Champions League this season, but their 4-0 loss in their last game has seen Borussia Dortmund open up a 3 points gap on them – Atletico need a result in this game to stay in with a chance of ending as group leaders.

Borussia Dortmund are 4 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga table after beating Wolfsburg 1-0 at the weekend.

Their win over Atleti in their last game also means that a draw in this match would help them qualify for the Champions League next round, and if they manage to win, they would finish top of their group with two games left to play.

Bookmakers make Atletico Madrid odds-on favourites to get revenge and stay within touching distance of Dortmund while goal markets are undecided whether or not this game will see goals.
