Borussia Dortmund vs Monaco 11 Apr 2017: UCL Preview and Predictions

The quarter finals of the Champions League will be back this week and at this stage of the competition, all the games will be incredibly intense and great to watch. Tomorrow will see domestically underperforming German side Borussia Dortmund  take on overperforming French team AS Monaco. This game should be exciting and I am expecting a close contest.

Dortmund will be at home and this is one of the hardest places to visit in world football. That being said, this team got smashed by Bayern Munich and this season they have simply not looked as good as they have in the past. This team is filled with stars but the morale is low and heading into a game like this, that is a huge negative. That along with their problems in midfield with Gotze gone, I think this game could lead to trouble.

Monaco on the other hand are full of confidence after winning games in the domestic league as well as their performance against Manchester City in the second leg. This game will not be easy for them but they are a team that keeps surprising and I think we can expect more of the same from them. We are getting a great price on this for them to win and I think putting a small wager in this category may be a profitable play.

In addition to that, I am expecting this to be quite a high scoring game with both teams having the capability to score goals. We are getting a really good price on the over 2.5 goals and I think this is a pretty safe bet. Along with that, I also think we are getting a good price on both teams to score so I am also suggesting that as a bet. 

Both Teams to Score
