Dortmund vs Sevilla
TUE 9 MAR 2021 – KO 20:00
BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Tuesday night, it’s Dortmund vs Sevilla in the Round of 16 Champions League fixture, with the German side winning 3-2 on aggregate so far.
Dortmund find themselves in a great position going into this game. They are 3-2 up with the second leg at home. As long as they don’t lose in the second leg, they will go through!
The German side were beaten 4-2 at the weekend by Bayern Munich, despite going 2-0 up after just nine minutes. This has shown they have weaknesses in their defence and they will need to improve for Tuesday’s game.
Sevilla are a tough side to break down, but Dortmund have already shown they can do it. With players like Haaland and Sancho, they will get chances and if they can score early on, it gives the hosts a mountain to climb. It’s important Dortmund start well and this is making sure they don’t concede.
Sevilla will be disappointed that they conceded three at home in the first leg. They took the lead early on in that game but couldn’t hold onto it. This was the first time they have conceded three goals all season.
The Spanish side have also lost their last two games in the league, conceding twice in both of them. They will need to learn from this as they are coming up against one of the best strikers in the world.
An early goal and Sevill are right back in this game. They are going to have to be patient though as if they concede, it’s as good as game over. If they can nullify the German sides attack they will have every chance, but this is far easier said than done!
Dortmund has a number of players with injury concerns: Reyna, Sancho, Akanji, Witsel, Guerreiro and Schmelzer are all out.
Only Aleix Vidal is missing for this game for Sevilla.
