Dortmund v Juventus Betting: Borussia start favourites for crucial second leg in Germany

Wednesday 18th March, 7.45pm - Dortmund v Juventus

The Champions League last-sixteen tie between Borussia Dortmund and Juventus is evenly poised ahead of the second leg at Signal Iduna Park on Wednesday night. Juventus are odds on to qualify for the quarter-finals at this stage as they won the first leg 2-1 in Italy but Dortmund grabbed a potentially crucial away goal and they start favourites for this second match on home soil.

  • Dortmund have won 11 of their last 14 home games in the Champions League (drawn 1, lost 2)
  • Dortmund have scored 9 of their last 10 home goals in all competitions in the second half of games
  • Juventus have conceded 1 first half goal in their last 12 away games in all competitions

Dortmund are 5/4 for the win with Betfred and Jurgen Klopp's men have shown green shoots of revival in recent weeks. A woeful pre-Christmas period has been followed by a resurgent run of one defeat in eight games in all competitions (won five, drawn two) and they are now up to tenth place in the German Bundesliga.

Jurgen Klopp's men have kept four clean sheets in a row but they have failed to score in their last two and a goalless draw simply won't do on Wednesday. The Juventus defeat apart, Dortmund have often saved their best for the Champions League and they have won 11 of their last 14 games at Signal Iduna Park (drawn one, lost two) in this competition, scoring in 18 of their last 19 at this brilliant stadium.

Marcos Reus emphasises Dortmund's appetite for the big occasion as the German playmaker has scored five goals in his last four Champions League appearances and he is 5/2 to score at anytime with Bet Victor. Reus might have to wait for that goal as 9 of Dortmund's last 10 goals at home in all competitions have come in the second half of games and William Hill go 8/5 for the second half to be the highest scoring half on Wednesday.

Furthermore, Juventus have only conceded one first half goal in their last twelve away games in all competitions and the double result of a half-time draw and full-time Dortmund win can be backed at a juicy 19/4 with Bet Victor. Massimo Allegri's Juventus are sitting comfortably at the top of the Italian Serie A table but they head into this game without the injured Andrea Pirlo and their efforts in Europe in recent years have left a lot to be desired.

Juventus have lost five of their last seven away games in the Champions League (won one, drawn one), including defeats at Atletico Madrid and Olympiakos during the group stages of this season's competition. The visitors face a tough task in this Dortmund v Juventus clash on Wednesday and it is the German side who could edge in to the quarter-finals.
