JUST IN: Pioli gives Early team news, predicted line up against Borussia Dortmund vs. Milan Predictions & Betting Tips

The Champions League continues with a heavyweight encounter, and these Borussia Dortmund vs. Milan predictions look ahead to the contest. Neither team won their first Group F match, and they will be eager to grab three points this week.

Borussia Dortmund odds against. Milan – Borussia Dortmund to win – 24/17

Donyell Malen will score – 13/5

8/13 – Both teams to score

Rafael Leao to score – 4 – 13/5

5 – A full-time draw – 14/5

On Wednesday evening, Borussia Dortmund will host AC Milan at the Signal Iduna Park in what is building up to be a season-defining match for both clubs.

The Rossoneri’s next Champions League games are against PSG, which means this is their best chance to collect three points until match day five, after only drawing their opener. Dortmund’s recent setback has dropped them to the bottom of Group F, and they desperately need a win on Wednesday.
The bookmakers consider the two teams as evenly balanced ahead of this must-win encounter. Dortmund have emerged as favourites, with Edin Terzic’s side undefeated in the Bundesliga. The German authorities have given BVB an additional advantage.

Despite Dortmund’s advantage on paper, Milan should not be written off and are merely small underdogs. The Rossoneri are expected to be more confident going into Wednesday’s encounter after outplaying Newcastle in the first round only to be let down by some poor finishing.

There will be limited space for error up front at Signal Iduna Park, therefore we expect both teams to score for the first time in this Champions League campaign.

There is no shortage of quality on both sides to back up their goals. Dortmund’s Donyell Malen leads the team in scoring with three goals and is equally at home up front or coming in off the right.

Rafael Leao, Malen’s opposite number, is another likely source of goals. This season, the winger has three goals and an assist for current top-goal scorer Olivier Giroud. The Portuguese winger was chastised for his showboating against Newcastle and will be eager to demonstrate his ruthlessness on Wednesday.

With two teams that are so evenly matched on paper, it would not be surprising to see this match result in a draw, despite the negative ramifications for both sides.
