12BET (Football Tips) The Portuguese giants will try to outshine the German club on their first ever match-up in UEFA Champions League.
Benfica managed to book their ticket in the round of 16 but will surely have a hard time on creating a play in a team which they haven’t had an encounter with before.
The club holds a great record at home which will be their advantage over their visitors. They are currently on top of their domestic standing.
Confidence will be their edge against their contenders as they will come in this rally fresh from a back to back clean sheet win at Liga Nos. The team will try to count on Korstas Mitroglou, Pizzi and Ederson Moraes in stealing some goals over their opponents.
The German side gets to outshine Real Madrid during the group stage as they claim the number one spot. It is no doubt that Dortmund is in good form in all the competitions that they are into as they settle for fourth.
Frustration has recently hit the squad after an unexpected away loss over Darmstadt in Bundesliga. The club needs to step-up their game since this match is highly in favor of the host. It has been a real struggle for Borussia Dortmund to create an impressive run away from their home soil.
The away team has started 2017 with a poor form as they are finding it hard to be proclaimed as victors in the end.
Meanwhile, it is true that Benfica is always having a hard time on snatching a victory over the giants in the competition eventhough they have the home turf advantage.
A fierce battle is soon to unfold – a draw result is currently anticipated in this match.
Borussia Dortmund 2.34
