Slavia Praha welcomes Borussia Dortmund
Slavia Praha welcomes Borussia Dortmund at the Sinobo Stadium in the beautiful Czech capital. This is a clash from Group F of the Champions League. Let’s examine it in our Champions League predictions.
Slavia Praha surprised a lot of people with their debut game in this group. Regarded as absolute underdogs in the group, the Czech champions won a point during the visit to Inter Milan at the San Siro. Peter Olayinka opened the score for Slavia, scoring in the middle of the second half.
The Czech team was really close to shockingly winning at the San Siro. Until the last seconds they had an advantage in the result, but Inter managed to equalise with a very late goal from the substitute Nicolo Barella.
You can be sure that this performance will give Slavia Praha huge confidence before their next game. Now they are aware that they can compete with the three giants in this group. They were really close to win against Inter.
Borussia Dortmund played a really good game against Barcelona at the Signal Iduna Park two weeks ago. Lucien Favre’s boys were better than the Catalans in most of the time. They even missed a penalty kick after the halftime break, when Marc-Andre ter Stegen saved Marco Reus’ shot from the spot. Despite of Dortmund having a few very good chances to score the match ended with a 0-0 draw.
Since the draw against Barca, Borussia Dortmund made two more draws in the Bundesliga. Right now they are in a run of three consecutive draws in all competitions.
During the weekend Dortmund hosted Werder Bremen at the Signal Iduna Park. Mario Gotze and Marco Reus scored for the hosts, but the match ended 2-2.
In our Champions League predictions we can advice you to be careful with this match. Most of the people will underrestimate Slavia Praha and will favour Borussia Dortmund, but against Inter the Czech side proved to be really capable.
