Borussia Dortmund hosts Newcastle United at the Signal Iduna Park in a match from Group F of the Champions League. Here’s what we can tell you about this game in our expert football betting strategies and analysis.
This is the toughest group in the Champions League for this season. At this moment Borussia Dortmund are second with 4 points while Newcastle are third with the same amount of points. That’s why this game looks so important for both teams.
Two weeks ago Newcastle hosted Dortmund at the St. James’ Park, but suffered a 0-1 defeat. The only goal in the match was scored in the 45th minute when Felix Nmecha put the ball in the net behind Nick Pope’s back. He was assisted by Nico Schlotterbeck and scored the winner for Die Borussen.
Newcastle’s manager Eddie Howe could think about a change in the line-up for the upcoming game. Joseph Willock and Callum Wilson are among the players who could start while Sandro Tonali is now banned and can’t play for the Magpies.
The veteran Marco Reus started from the first minute against Newcastle two weeks ago but now Edin Terzic could pick Karim Adeyemi in front of him in the line-up. At the same time Gio Reyna and Niklas Sule could be starting as well.
Niclas Fullkrug won himself a starting place in the team since his arrival from Werder Bremen. The German striker will be one of Dortmund’s most dangerous players on the pitch against Newcastle. The English team will have to keep him under an eye in the upcoming game. The same could be said about the Dutch star Donyell Malen who is a quality player for Die Borussen.
