It was a point apiece for both these teams in their first group match but there’s no doubt it would be Slavia Prague would be much the happier of the two. Can Dortmund end a run of three straight draws here?!

Slavia Prague Preview – Can Slavia build on excellent match day one result and get another positive result?

It may be the first time in over a decade that Slavia Prague are competing in the group stage of the Champions League but you would never have known it in their first game of this campaign. The Czech champions were excellent in their away game against Inter and really should have won the match. Had you offered them a point beforehand they would clearly have taken it but there will be some frustration that they couldn’t hold out for a few minutes longer. It has already increased their chances of qualifying from what is a really difficult group by taking a point away from home. They will not be getting ahead of themselves, though, with a double header against Barcelona to come after this encounter.

It’s been an excellent start to the season for Slavia. They have moved stylish to the top of the table with nine wins in what is an unbeaten start after 11 games. It’s once again their defensive record which stands out, conceding just two goals in the league so far. They have been able to carry that into European competition, too. The goal against Inter the only time they have been breached including the playoff tie. They will have to be at their best defensively to withstand the potent Dortmund attack.

Over 2.5 goals


Borussia Dortmund Preview – Are Dortmund set to take recent frustrations out on Prague and get first win of the group stage?

Dortmund are fast becoming one of the most frustrating clubs in European football. For all the talent they have assembled and the expectations surrounding them, Lucien Favre’s men have continued to find different ways to not win games. Saturday’s home game against Werder Bremen was the third straight draw for Dortmund and has let them trailing in the Bundesliga. It’s now nine goals conceded in six league games and that glaring problem will have to be fixed.

The game in which they have looked the most defensively sound in recent weeks was in their goalless draw with Barcelona on match day one in Group F. In game they dominated and missed a penalty, it’s no doubt two points dropped however and leaves them needing to pick up points here you feel. One thing Favre will be confident of is that the blank against Barca will be a rarity. It’s the only game they have not scored in this season.

With back to back games against Inter to come there’s no doubt Dortmund will be targeting a win here. Four points from two games reads a lot better than having two with the San Siro and Nou Camp still to visit.

Key-Facts – Slavia Prague v Borussia Dortmund

  • The visitors last 20 games in the Champions League have seen them score in 16 and concede in 16

Slavia Prague v Borussia Dortmund Betting Advice

Slavia would have been looking at this group thinking third would be a great achievement because of the quality of team they were drawn with. That’s certainly something they look capable of going by the first game and perhaps even more. Dortmund still come into this game favourites however they are playing a team who rarely lose. Slavia’s last defeat came back in April. The home team will feel they can cause their visitors problems considering how vulnerable they have looked in defence.
The Czech’s defensive record is very good however they do not often come up against such attacking potency. Dortmund virtually always score and they have done in 16 of their last 20 away games in the Champions League. We know they allow plenty as well though, conceding in the same number of games during that run. Both teams to score looks a really appealing bet as a result in this one.
