Champions League predictions for Borussia Dortmund vs Internazionale
Borussia Dortmund host Internazionale in the Champions League fourth round match. The match will be played on Tuesday, November 5 from 8pm UK at Signal-Iduna-Park.
Borussia Dortmund are currently in second place in the Bundesliga after having 19 points from 10 matches and lagging behind by 3 from leader Borussia M’gladbach. They climbed to the second position after winning the last round 3-0 at home to Wolfsburg with no goals scored in the first half of this match, but in the first 15 minutes of the second half Thorgan Hazard and Raphaël Guerreiro made the score 2:0 for the hosts. Mario Götze scored the third goal in the penalty area after 88 minutes.
A few days earlier, Dortmund removed leader Borussia M’gladbach from the German Cup tournament after winning 2:1. However, in the Champions League, they lost in their last clash exactly as a guest of their upcoming rival Inter 2-0, and now it will take a victory if they want to fight for one of the first two places in the group and move on to the elimination phase of Champions League.
Inter are second in Serie A with 28 points after 11 rounds, trailing only 1 by Juventus leader. In the last round of the championship they were away to Bologna and after zero halftime, the home side led by 1:0 in the 59th minute. However, the visitors managed to win after two goals by Romelu Lukaku and the second was awarded a penalty during the match. In the Champions League, things did not start at all for Antonio Conte’s players, as they finished equally against Slavia Praha 1:1 at home and then lost their away game to Barcelona by 2-1.
If they wanted to keep their chances of moving forward real, they had to beat Borussia Dortmund in the third round of Stadio Giuseppe Meazza and they made it 2-0. The goals in this match were scored by Lautaro Martínez in the first half and Antonio Candreva in the closing minutes of the match.
The upcoming match seems to be deciding which team will qualify for second place in the group after Barcelona. Borussia Dortmund will be looking for a mandatory victory because after losing to Inter they are currently in third place. I think they will not be able to beat Antonio Conte’s Inter, who is an extremely competent tactical team and knows how to get the required result from every match , so I’m betting on Draw or Inter.
