Real Madrid vs Borusia Dortmund Preview

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.

Goal Prediction tips:
| Over 1.5 at Half Time | 2.05
| Ronaldo to Score Anytime | 1.65

Manchester United vs CSKA Moscow Preview

Red Devils will look to secure qualification to the next round and will be wary of not showing complacency ahead of the Manchester derby.
The Red Devils go into the European tie following their enthralling 3-1 victory over Arsenal.

Despite leading Group A on 12 points, United have not yet mathematically qualified for the round of 16. A draw would be enough for the Red Devils to top the group.

If Basel fail to beat Benfica in the group’s other match, United would qualify regardless of their own result.

Moscow come into this one in good form, having won five and drawn one of their last six matches in all competitions.

Viktor Goncharenko’s side recorded their biggest victory since April 2016 on Friday night, beating FC Tosno 6-0 at home.

Manchester United were devastating in front of goal on Saturday, beating Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates.

Man United team news vs CSKA Moscow
Paul Pogba is likely to feature, given that he’ll be unavailable for the next three domestic matches after being sent off at Arsenal.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic could return to the matchday squad after being rested on Saturday.

Phil Jones remains out, while Eric Bailly is a doubt.

In midfield, United will be without Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini.

Mourinho may rotate his side a little with the crucial Manchester derby on the horizon.

CSKA Moscow team news vs Man United
Alexei Berezutski and Georgi Milanov are both ruled out after breaking their legs last month.
