Posted on by editor

The 2nd placed side in the Bundesliga host the 2nd placed side in La Liga in the second 2012-13 Champions League semifinal on Wednesday.

Borussia Dortmund vs. Real Madrid Trends Analysis

These two sides have clashed fairly frequently in the last several seasons, with five matches played since 2003 – including two Champions League ties and a club friendly.

The first Champions League tie between these sides was played in 2003, and saw real Madrid win the tie with a 2-1 home win and a 1-1 away draw. The second tie between the sides was played in this season’s Champions League group stages, with Dortmund winning the home leg of the tie 2-1 before drawing 2-2 in Madrid for an aggregate 4-3 win.

The single club friendly between the sides was played in 2009 and produced a 5-0 win for Real Madrid.

Borrussia have found a good vein of form ahead of this fixture, with four wins and a draw to show for their last five games. However, they were not as convincing as they might have liked in qualifying for the Champions League semifinals, drawing in Malaga before winning their home leg 3-2.

The club’s biggest strength is its forwards, who have put away an impressive 15 goals in their last five games. Defence leaves the side vulnerable, however, with 6 goals conceded during this run of fixtures.

Real Madrid have won three, of their last five games, but lost to Galatasary in the second leg of their Champions League quarterfinal tie and drew away to humble Real Zaragoza in La Liga.

Like Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid pack a powerful punch upfront, with 14 goals scored in the last five games and Cristiano Ronaldo in peak form, scoring 6 of these. Defence also needs some tightening with 5 goals conceded in these fixtures.

Borussia Dortmund vs. Real Madrid Betting Tips

Borussia Dortmund have a solid chance of winning this game. They won their home fixture earlier in the season against Real Madrid and are in good form.

Their biggest challenge will come in defence, where they’ll face the task of keeping out an in-form Cristiano Ronaldo.

Picking a winner is something of a coin toss despite Borussia’s marginal advantage. However, we do know that both sides possess formidable strikers and weak defences – which means we’re looking at a high scoring fixture.

Our Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid betting tip is therefore to go with a back bet on over 2.75 goals being scored in what is expected to be a high-scoring encounter.
