Real Madrid are already through as Champions League Group H runners-up and have little to play for, but they still make more appeal than struggling Borussia Dortmund.
The visitors are in a fight with APOEL for third place after only picking up two points in five matches and have also gone seven Bundesliga games without a win.
Peter Bosz’s side have at least scored in 17 straight fixtures in all competitions, so we’re taking 27/20 for a home win and both teams to hit the target in our Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund betting predictions.
A Look At Real Madrid’s Betting Odds
Real Madrid have won only two of their last five LaLiga fixtures following Saturday’s draw at Athletic Bilbao and they will also have to settle for second best behind Spurs in this pool.
Taking only one point from two encounters with Tottenham proved decisive, but Real have since crushed APOEL 6-0 in Cyprus and are keen to end their group-stage campaign on a high.
Zinedine Zidane continues to express the view that the Whites are generally playing well and just not tucking away chances in some games they are dominating.
At least the omens are good for the goals to flow here, with Real scoring nine in three home matches against German teams in this competition since Zidane took charge.
Cristiano Ronaldo has predictably been a thorn in Dortmund’s side during nine head-to-head meetings over the last five years.
His double in September’s 3-1 triumph at Signal Iduna Park made it six strikes in those encounters and 5/2 for Ronaldo to break the deadlock here makes our Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund betting tips.
A Look At Borussia Dortmund’s Betting Odds
We’ve given Borussia Dortmund more chances than most this season and they have let us down badly.
Even after taking the lead against a Tottenham team that had already qualified, they were then outplayed on home turf before eventually falling to a 2-1 defeat.
Two draws against Cypriot minnows APOEL is all they have to show for their efforts in this pool, while they have also slipped down to sixth in the Bundesliga.
Recent setbacks included blowing a 4-0 half-time lead when sharing the spoils with Schalke.
