Reason For Borussia Dortmund vs Monaco Betting Tips

Borussia Dortmund suffered a dismal Champions League campaign last season as they were eliminated from the group stages having failed to win a single one of their six group matches. Their only points came in draws against APOEL, so when they were drawn alongside Atletico Madrid and Monaco this season things looked like they were going to be difficult for them.

Fortunately, the Bundesliga outfit have started the new season in much better shape. They beat Club Brugge 1-0 in their Champions League opener, and after six games in the Bundesliga they remain unbeaten in competitive football this term. They have won five of their seven games in the Bundesliga and Champions League, and once again seem to have returned to their unique brand of high-octane football.

The same can’t be said of Monaco. They also endured a torrid Champions League season last term, also losing four and drawing two of their group stage matches to exit the competition far earlier than they were hoping. This came after they had reached the Champions League semi-finals the season before, which included a quarter final victory over Borussia Dortmund and a shock aggregate win against Manchester City.

However, that success took it’s toll on Monaco. The youthful quality that brought them so much success, including a Ligue 1 title, has been quickly picked off by the top European clubs. Kylian Mbappe was one of the first to depart in a huge move to PSG, with Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva, and Tiemoue Bakayoko also leaving that summer.

This summer saw their haemorrhaging of stars continue, with Thomas Lemar, Fabinho, and Terence Kongolo all departing to leave them with a rather threadbare squad that was always very unlikely to repeat the successes of the 2016/17 campaign.

That has proven to be the case for Monaco so far. They have won just one of their ten competitive games this season, a campaign that started with a crushing 4-0 defeat against PSG in their French Super Cup clash in August. They have lost six of these ten outings, and their last victory came almost two months ago in a trip to Nantes.

Monaco’s Champions League opener was a 2-1 loss at home to Atletico Madrid, with them taking a surprisingly early lead but ultimately failing to protect that advantage. The chances are that they’ll struggle to deal with the attacking talents of their German hosts on Wednesday too.

As is often the case, goals are the aim of the game for Dortmund. They have scored 22 goals in their eight games so far this season, including a huge haul of 11 goals in their last two matches. Five of their eight competitive games have seen at least three goals scored, and with half of Monaco’s outings also seeing three or more goals in total we like the look of a Dortmund Win and Over 2.5 Goals, along with a 3-1 correct score predictions.
