Our prediction for this Champions League match:
After holding Bayern Munich to a draw in der Klassiker, Borussia Dortmund will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Sevilla in the Champions League round 4. The Bundesliga outfit have a chance to seal their spot in the last 16, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Tuesday’s clash. All Mahmoud Dahoud, Mateu Morey, Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, Marko Reus are sidelined with injuries, while Thomas Meunier, Mats Hummels, and Giovanni Reyna are major doubts.
Los Sevillanos, on the other hand, aim to start improving their game under new boss Jorge Sampaoli, but seeing that they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss to Borussia Dortmund a week ago, we are tempted to put our money on Edin Terzic’s troops. Oliver Torres is ineligible for the Champions League clash, while all Jesus Corona, Karim Rekik, and Fernando remain in the recovery room.
