A home win for Sporting is doubted at 12/5 with bet365 while an away win is 6/5. A draw between the two teams is 13/5.

Sporting enter the fray this week still hyped from their 2-0 win over Legia Warsaw last time out in the Champions League, with goals from Bas Dost and Bryan Ruiz sealing their first win of the groups stages this season. Since that win Sporting have picked up a draw and a win in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, and as a result the side is unbeaten in four games. Looking to eek out that run further this wee, lead striker Dost enters the fray looking for his fourth goal in five games at 7/4 while a goal for Ruiz is 15/4. New recruit Luc Castaignos is a tempting 9/4 to score on his Champions League debut.

Dortmund on the other hand have been below par by all accounts recently, with the Germans now without a win in three games. The first of those non-wins was a 2-2 draw with Real Madrid in the last round of the Champions League, with goals from Andre Schurrle and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang not enough to secure a second win on the bounce in the group stages. Despite that draw, Aubameyang is the man tipped to inspire a win this week for Dortmund, with the striker just 20/21 to get on the scoresheet. Aubameyang’s understudy, Adrian Ramos, is 15/8 to score with bet365.

Tip

Back Dortmund to win 2-1 this week at 8/1 with bet365.

A safer bet lies with Dortmund to win and both teams to score at 3/1.
