Borussia Dortmund are in a complicated situation before their home game against Slavia Praha
Borussia Dortmund are in a complicated situation before their home game against Slavia Praha in Group F of the Champions League. But what’s happening exactly there? Let’s see in our Champions League predictions.
Die Borussen are third in Group F with 7 points, which is the same amount of point that the second Inter Milan have. The problem for Dortmund is this – the Nerazzurri are having better stats than the Germans, which means that Borussia Dortmund’s only chance is to beat Slavia Praha and hope that Inter Milan won’t win against Barcelona.
Two wins, one draw and two losses – this is Die Borussen’s record in the league right now. In the previous round of the group stage Dortmund suffered a second defeat, losing against Barcelona at the Camp Nou. The great goal Jadon Sancho scored in Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s net was not enough for Lucien Favre’s team to do something more.
Now Borussia Dortmund are not the rulers of their own fate. What they can do is simple – do their job against Slavia Praha and hope that Barca will make them a favour at the San Siro.
For this game the manager Lucien Favre can’t use Marcel Schmelzer, Thomas Delaney and Jacob Bruun Larsen who are injured. In their last game in the Bundesliga Borussia Dortmund achieved an exciting 5-0 win at home against Fortuna Dusseldorf.
Slavia Praha are playing only for their own prestigie at the moment. The Czech side is going to finish 4th in the group and nothing can change this. They have just two points won in the matches so far.
That’s our Champions League predictions for the match between Borussia Dortmund and Slavia Praha at the Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday. The German side is in a difficult situation and they will expect good news from Milan, but they must do their own job first.
