The Group H of 2017/18 Champions League is done and dusted with Real Madrid poised to finish second and Dortmund eliminated with their respective results on matchday 5.
Yet, the Bundesliga side have something to play for as they are in a tough tussle with APOEL Nicosia for a place in the Europa League knock-outs.
BvB managed just 2 points from their 5 matches so far with both coming via draws against Apoel by the same 1-1 ft score-line. Therefore, they need to equal or better the result of the Cypriots to achieve the same.
Real Madrid sit three points behind Tottenham, but they cannot go top of the table even with a win on matchday 6. This is due to the inferior h2h with the English team with their duel in Wembley ending in a 3-1 defeat.
Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund: Head-to-head
With the 3-1 win at the Signal Iduna Park on matchday 2, Madrid stretched their unbeaten run against Dortmund to 5 games, 3 wins and 2 draws. Bvb were unbeaten in five previous meetings with same stats.
There has been a total of 13 meetings between the two sides in UEFA competitions and Madrid lead the h2h with 5 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses.
Eight of the last 11 games between the sides saw both teams scoring and 7 of those registered over 2.5 goals.
Dortmund haven’t won an away game at Madrid, 2 draws and 4 losses from 6. Also, they have a poor overall record in Spain with the 12 visits producing 1 win, 5 draws and 6 losses.
The Blancos have a solid home record against German sides, 23 wins from 31 games, 5 draws and 3 losses.
Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction
The Bundesliga side have a dreadful record in Spanish soil and are yet to win a game at the Bernabeu. This match could go in favour of the team in white and we could see some goals at either ends.
All eyes will be on Cristiano Ronaldo who has scored in all five group games so far. He can set a new record by getting his name on the score-sheet on Tuesday by becoming the first player to net in all six Champions League group games of a single season.
