Borussia Dortmund Prediction – Can Borussia Dortmund make statement here?

It’s been a pretty good start to the new domestic German Bundesliga season for Tuesday night’s hosts, Borussia Dortmund, as they’ve won 3 of their first 4 matches of the new campaign, recording victories over Augsburg 5-1 at home, 3-1 away at Cologne and a 4-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen at their Signal-Iduna-Park.

Even though Borussia Dortmund lost 3-1 away at Union Berlin, there’s still been plenty of goals where Dortmund have been involved, with a total of 18 goals produced from the first 4 matches of this Bundesliga season which is a crazy statistic.

The bigger picture also tells us that Borussia Dortmund matches and goals almost always go hand-on-hand as 12 of their last 15 home matches in all competitions have resulted in over 2.5 goals, while 7 of Borussia Dortmund’s last 10 home ties in the Champions League have also met the 3 goals threshold too.

Forwards Alcacer (5 goals) and Reus (3 goals) will be looking to catch Barcelona cold on Tuesday night in this their first ever meeting in all competitions.

Barcelona Prediction – Can Barcelona live up to favourites tag?

Following their shock opening day defeat in La Liga in a 1-0 loss away at Athletic Bilbao, Barcelona have responded in positive fashion by recording emphatic back-to-back wins at their Nou Camp along with a point against Osasuna.

Barcelona bounced back from their opening day defeat in triumphant fashion by recording back-to-back home wins over Real Betis and Valencia, both by convincing 5-2 margins, as well as being involved in a 2-2 draw away at Osasuna.

This means a total of 19 goals have been scored in matches that have involved Barcelona so far in this new La Liga campaign, and although results away from home haven’t all gone their way, the goals have continued to flow wherever Barcelona have travelled.

4 of Barcelona’s last 6 away matches in all competitions have resulted in over 2.5 goals being scored with these results including a 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool while domestic 2-2 draws at Eibar and most recently, Osasuna, have contributed to the goal-count.

4 of Barcelona’s last 7 away ties in the Champions League have also beaten the 2.5 goal mark too.
