Reason For Club Brugge vs Borussia Dortmund Betting Tips

After a dismal campaign in Europe last season, Borussia Dortmund are hoping for a fresh start under Lucien Favre. They’ve already kicked off the new Bundesliga season with some strong results, but can they return from Belgium with all three points? Dortmund visit Club Brugge this week, kicking off their Champions League campaign. With Monaco and Atletico rivalling Dortmund for a top two finish, Group A looks like one of the most competitive in the competition. Can the Germans make a perfect start to their push for a last 16 place?

The hosts are the early pacesetters in Belgium, kicking off with six wins and a draw from their first seven. That unbeaten start will have given them plenty of confidence, but it’s going to be tough for them to bridge the gap between Dortmund, Monaco and Atletico. The Belgians will hope that the trio all repeat their failings of last season – with each side failing to make it out of their group. However, they’re unlikely to underperform again.

The visitors have certainly steadied the ship following last season’s failings. The Bundesliga outfit finished a distant third behind Tottenham and Real Madrid, before going out in the second knockout round of the Europa League to Red Bull Salzburg. Both of those finishes were considered poor for Dortmund, who limped in to fourth place in the Bundesliga last term. That’s unlikely to happen this time around, with Favre invigorating the squad and putting in an early challenge to Bayern.

Dortmund have won two of their first three matches, claiming victories over Leipzig and Frankfurt. They will expect to improve on their Champions League campaign of 12 months ago, when they failed to win any of their six games. Favre’s side look much better prepared, and they should get some joy away to a Brugge side who have an awful record in this competition.

The Belgians have lost nine of their last 10 matches in the Champions League. Their last clash here saw them draw 3-3 with Istanbul Basaksehir, which followed four straight defeats to the likes of Copenhagen and Leicester. While the hosts have started well, we’re going with an away win for Dortmund. We’re also tipping the visitors to win and both teams to score, with BTTS landing in nine straight Champions League ties for Dortmund. The hosts should have enough quality to find the net after averaging 2.7 goals per game in the league this term, although the step up to Europe’s highest level should be too much for them.
