Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Buoyed by a 1-1 draw with Barcelona in El Clasico Real Madrid take on Borussia Dortmund at their Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in their last group game in the Champions League. Los Blancos scored a late equaliser in the La Liga derby and, no doubt, they are high on confidence ahead of Wednesday’s football match against Thomas Tuchel’s troops. Real Madrid are determined to overtake Borussia Dortmund in top position in Group F, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Zinedine Zidane’s troops aim to keep their 100% record at home intact and we predict that they are going to finish the process in top position. The Millionaires rolled over Borussia M’gladbach (4-1) at the weekend, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Real Madrid. Borussia Dortmund’s away performances leave a lot to be desired and the visitors are likely to return home empty-handed.

Highlighted Team (Borussia Dortmund):
1909 by eighteen footballers from Dortmund. Die Schwarzgelben (The Black and Yellows) play their home games at Signal Iduna Park, but the stadium’s original name is Westfalenstadion. The capacity of Borussia’s home ground is 81,539 and it has to be noted that the stadium was opened in 1974. BVB have the highest average attendance in the world of football. Borussia Dortmund have won eight Bundesliga trophies, while clinching the German Cup title three times. However, the club’s biggest success came in 1997 when they outplayed Juventus in the Champions League final.
