The two teams are leading perfect campaigns both domestically and at the best league in Europe. They are already on course to reach last-16 in Champions League, showing great improvement after their disappointing campaign last season. They both failed to advance out of the group-stage and subsequently dropped to Europa League in 2017/18 season.
According to the best online betting sites in Germany, the only advantage that could decide this match is the home ground. So, if you think Dortmund can succeed in mobilizing their fans, you can pick them when betting on Borussia Dortmund v Atletico Madrid. But, we rather opt for a draw, as it is too soon for either team to claim the top spot in Group A.
Atletico & Dortmund Records for This Season
According to online sportsbook news in Germany, the two teams have a perfect start in Champions League, capturing six points each from Monaco and Club Brugge. Atletico have rediscovered their attacking force when they won (3-1) at home against Club Brugge in Champions League second round. Dortmund had similar experience enjoying a comfortable (3-0) victory over Monaco.
Domestically, Borussia Dortmund have shown better results so far, topping the table with 14 points and six consecutive games without a loss. They are leading Bundesliga with one point ahead of the six times champions Bayern Munich. On the other hand the Spaniards started slow in La Liga, but they are now returning to their good times, with only two points behind leaders Barcelona.
How The Two Teams Lead Their Brilliant Campaigns?
A fine summer recruitment has given the Argentine manager Diego Simeone a number of talented players to work with, and Thomas Lemar appears to have settled in perfectly. They are still counting massively on the two strikers Costa and Griezmann. Costa did not find his way to scoring yet but his fellow French striker is coming back strong after two goals in Club Brugge.
BVB are taking different path to compete at the highest level, with the injection of youth and energy from the likes of Jadon Sancho and Jacob Bruun Larsen. The captain Marco Reus was interviewed by Bundesliga.com, commenting
“There’s a certain euphoria about the boys right now. They give us a lot of input, help the team a great deal and still shine individually.”
According to LSbet Sportsbook, Dortmund are looking to defend their place at the summit with odds at 2.50. If they fail to take advantage of their home ground, Atleti might come forward to capture the victory with odds at 2.80. However, the safest bet on Dortmund v Atletico remains a draw with odds at 3.30.
