SPORTING CP VS DORTMUND PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Sporting CP also recently returned to the most prestigious arena in Europe but immediately received a cold water bath by Ajax. However, in the second match, Amorim’s students played resiliently on Dortmund’s field, then won 2 victories against Besiktas to rise to second place in the group. The solid and pragmatic gameplay has been maintained stably by Sporting for the past 1 year. 11 matches in the domestic league brought 9 victories, only conceding 4 times, showing the stability of the defense system. Not only that, but Sporting also has a not-so-bad head-to-head record against Dortmund, despite suffering 3 defeats, but there is a minimal difference. With increasingly positive performance, Sporting will not give up easily when playing in Lisbon.
Borussia Dortmund under Marco Rose is also extremely stable, in 16 matches from the beginning of the season they have won 11 and are holding second place in the Bundesliga. The first 4 matches showed Dortmund’s experience, defeating Sporting and Besiktas both with a minimum difference to get 6 points. The 4-3-1-2 formation provides the solid defense with impressive efficiency. In the last 6 matches in all competitions, Dortmund only received 7 goals and kept 2 clean sheets. A solid defense will be the basis for Marco Rose’s students to aim for a positive result before the final match.
With the situation of Group C Ajax has won 1 place, both will have to be very cautious against direct competitors. The trend of playing safe is also reflected in the statistics of the last 2 meetings, both with no more than 1 goal.
Select: Under 2.75 FT.
Borussia Dortmund is completely superior in terms of team quality and head-to-head record, 3 times in the past the victories belonged to the Bundesliga representative. Having in the hands of two young talents of world football Haaland and Bellingham, Dortmund reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League last season. Sporting has just returned after 4 years of absence and is still inexperienced in key matches. At a different level, Marco Rose’s students will hold the right to self-determination.
Contrary to Sporting CP’s poor performance in the continental arena, Borussia Dortmund regularly participates in the knockout rounds. Marco Rose’s students also had a perfect run with a victory over Stuttgart last weekend, narrowing the gap with Bayern to 1 point. Winning after 90 minutes is not too difficult a task for the representative of the Bundesliga.
