Borussia Dortmund’s last 4 home matches have had 4 or more goals, including 3 wins with a score of 5-2 against Frankfurt, 3-2 against Hoffenheim and 4-2 against Union. With the advantage of playing at home, coach Marco Rose’s team will not hesitate to improve the squad to find an early goal.
After 4 years, Sporting CP will be able to participate in the group stage of the Champions League and regain their No. 1 position in Portugal. The 1-5 defeat to Ajax in the opening match showed the immaturity of this team. The way of playing is too open when the defense often loses focus in each round. In the last defeat, Sporting CP lost 2 goals in the first 10 minutes of play. The lack of competition resulted in a disastrous ending. Sporting CP’s competitive spirit cannot be denied, but they have not yet found a balance in the way they play. Confronting Borussia Dortmund with a higher level, Sporting CP’s ability to limit goals is still a huge question mark.

Sporting CP just returned to this tournament after a 4-year absence and immediately showed immaturity. At different levels and playing at home, coach Marco Rose’s team is holding a huge advantage.
