Sport Betting Tip: Club Brugge - Borussia Dortmund
- Title : Sport Betting Tip: Club Brugge - Borussia Dortmund
Having facilitated to a 2-0 away win over Bundesliga newcomers Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday, Borussia Dortmund re-visitation of Champions League activity in midweek. They travel to Belgium with Club Brugge up next, with Philippe Clement's side unbeaten (W1, D1) and possessing second spot in Group F after two games Will their promising beginning proceed against the top picks to develop as gathering champs here? Since a lowering 3-1 thrashing by Lazio on MD1, Dortmund have saved three progressive clean sheets without precedent for 2020. What's straightaway?
Dortmund are the better side, but Brugge will back themselves to upset their heavily-fancied visitors. Watch to see if Clement has a trick up his sleeve, like starting Ajax loanee Noa Lang ahead of Emmanuel Dennis after his disappointing showing on MD2.
Mats Hummels scored a second-half brace as Dortmund were deserved winners at the Schuco-Arena on Saturday afternoon. There were impressive displays by Jude Bellingham, Thomas Meunier and Jadon Sancho too as BVB extended their recent run of promising form. They did so without Erling Braut Haaland (knee), while their matchwinner Hummels (tight thigh) limped off late on.
The pair are expected to be fit on Wednesday, but Lucien Favre has capable replacements should either not be risked here. Marco Reus started as the lone center forward away at Bielefeld, while experienced fullback Lukasz Piszczek is capable of playing in central defense.
That team news will come as a welcome sign for Brugge, who displayed fearless endeavor and determination to beat Zenit 2-1 on MD1. They came from behind to stifle a weakened Lazio side on MD2, after multiple players did not travel to Brugge because of a coronavirus outbreak within the squad.
Charles De Ketelaere was impactful against Lazio, while Krépin Diatta and goalscorer Hans Vanaken need to continue their recent form here. They drew 2-2 against Mechelen three days later, though some players were left with this fixture in mind. Will that help them?
My prediction: Dortmund win FT 1.68
