Borussia Dortmund vs Atletico Madrid Preview 


I expect to see the same scenario from Spain in Germany, Borussia Dortmund to hold the ball and Atletico Madrid to strike through counterattacks. BVB have been inconsistent through this entire season, and I don’t see them winning this one.

Head to Head 


Atletico Madrid have a 2-1 advantage against Borussia Dortmund in 3 matches. 

The first tie last week was won by Atletico Madrid 2-1. 

Borussia Dortmund Form 


Borussia Dortmund did have the possession in the first tie (66%) but didn’t create a lot of opportunities in Madrid, deservedly losing the match 2-1, Sebastien Haller scoring late. 

The BVB quickly returned to winning ways last weekend in the Bundesliga, beating Borussia Monchengladbach 2-1 on the road, both goals being scored by Marcel Sabitzer in the first half, while Karim Adeyemi was sent off in the 55th minute. 

This victory kept them in the race for Top 4 positions in Germany, sharing the desired spot with Leipzig, both teams collecting 56 points from 29 matches. 

Edin Terzic’s side advanced to the UCL quarterfinals over PSV, beating the Dutch side 3-1 on aggregate, Donyell Malen, Jadon Sancho and Marco Reus appearing on the scoresheets. 

Borussia Dortmund Injuries & Team News 


Ramy Bensabaini and Abdoulaye Kamara are injured. 

Atletico Madrid Form 


Atletico Madrid had 2.16-0.95 expected goals in the first match, scoring both goals in the first half through Rodrigo De Paul and Samuel Lino. 

The Atleti earned their third straight victory across competitions last weekend at home in La Liga, beating 3rd placed Girona 3-1, Antoine Griezmann (x2) and Angel Correa hitting the target. 

Thanks to those points, Atletico Madrid strengthened their 4th position in La Liga, now having five-point advantage over 5th Athletic Bilbao. 

In the previous round of the Champions League playoffs, Diego Simeone’s side caused an upset by eliminating Inter Milan. After losing the first tie in Italy 1-0, they won 2-1 at home and eliminated the opposition after a penalty shootout. 

Atletico Madrid Injuries & Team News 


Thomas Lemar, Memphis Depay, Vitolo and Mario Hermoso are injured. 

Samuel Lino is suspended. 

Verdict

Atletico Madrid outplayed Borussia Dortmund in the first tie and they lost just one UCL match since November 2022. I will back the Spanish side with a double chance and BTTS.
