Sporting vs Dortmund: prediction and bets on 2021-22 Champions League, November 24, 2021

Match info

There are two gamedays left for the completion of the group stage of the 2021-22 UEFA Champions League, and for Germany’s Borussia Dortmund and Portugal’s Sporting Clube de Portugal their next mutual encounter, on Wednesday, November 24, is hugely important in terms of qualifying to the playoff. The game will be played at the Estádio José Alvalade in Lisbon from 8 p.m. local time (11 p.m. Moscow time).

Meeting statistics

Dortmund won the first leg at home 1-0 thanks to one of the few goals from new signing Donyell Malen. In the second leg, the weakened ‘BVB’ needs at least a draw in order to have the progress to the playoff in its own hands on the last gameday. The same applies to Sporting.

The current form of Sporting

If you take a look at the previous league results of Sporting Lisbon and then look at the Champions League results, you will ask yourself whether the same team was actually in action in both competitions. While the matches in the domestic Liga NOS were always close and characterized by few goals, in the CL, Sporting’s matches always had a lot of excitement, with the exception of the 0-1 in Dortmund. After the 1-5 opening defeat against Ajax, ‘The Lions’ lost 0-1 in Germany before winning two duels with Beşiktaş: 4-1 and 4-0.

In the home league, however, there has never been a scoring festival like this. Rúben Amorim’s team has won all of the last six games, but never scored more than two goals. In addition to 2-0 against Paços Ferreira on the last matchday, four games ended with a score of 1-0 and one game with a score of 2-0 in the previous period. After 11 match days, Sporting have now collected 29 out of 33 possible points. In the League Cup, there was a 2-1 win against second division Varzim last weekend. Since the defeat in Dortmund, the Portuguese side has won nine competitive games in a row. We are curious, so are you, whether this streak will now end with another defeat against Dortmund or not.

The current form of Dortmund

There is a corona alert at Borussia Dortmund at the moment. Just two days after the Bundesliga win against Stuttgart (2-1), it was announced that winger Thorgan Hazard, who was in the starting line-up on the weekend, was infected with Covid. His absence in Portugal is a big handicap for the German side. Due to the absences which are known from earlier, such as Giovanni Reyna, Marius Wolf, Yousouffa Moukoko, and Nico Schulz, the Westphalians hardly have any players left who can be used on the flanks. And all that before a game that is incredibly important for the rest of the season. If Dortmund lose against the home team and concede more than one goal, hopes for the Round of 16 will be buried. In the event of a 0-1 defeat, the direct comparison would be completely balanced, so in the event of a tie after the last gameday, the goal difference would count. Here, Dortmund will be definitely left behind due to the clear defeats against Ajax. ‘BVB’ is currently at -4 and Sporting at +2.

Compared to the last few games, Marco Rose’s team will definitely need an increase in performance. Against Stuttgart, a late 2-1 home win could be seen with discomfort. Previously, there was a close 1-2 defeat in the top game in Leipzig, which could have been even higher. In the Champions League, there were two defeats against Ajax. First, away, with a resounding 0-4, then at home after a decent performance, with 1-3. That day, from the 29th minute onwards, Dortmund were playing outnumbered.

Head-to-head encounters

The direct comparison clearly goes in the favor of ‘BVB’ with 3 to 0 in wins. In the CL group stage in 2016-17, Dortmund won 2-1 and 1-0. In the first leg of the current season, the Germans won 1-0.

The match-related facts:

• Dortmund have always scored in the last 6 games. If Sporting Lisbon take the lead of 1-0 at home, they win 88% of the games.
• The average number of goals scored in clashes between Sporting and Dortmund is 1.67.
• If Dortmund are 1-0 behind in away games, they win only 28% of the games.
• Sporting have won 6 home games in a row.

Match analytics

You should consider a bet on a small number of goals at the best mobile bookmakers. Even if the previous Champions League results from Sporting speak a different language, they don’t score many goals in the home games. The last three home games in the league ended 1-0.

Since Dortmund will probably struggle again offensively, we can recommend a bet on a maximum of two goals in the game (total goals under 2.5) with an odd of 2.15 at 888sport.
