Borussia Dortmund vs Atletico Madrid Live | UEFA Champions League | Date: Wednesday, 24 October 2018 | Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET | Venue: Signal-Iduna-Park (Dortmund)
A real uproar is expected in and around Signal-Iduna-Park, where the two most visible teams of Group A compete in one of the players of the game week on Wednesday night. Borussia and Atletico have been impeccable so far and their two face-to-face encounters will probably determine the group’s winner.
The hosts spend a wonderful time with Lucien Favre this season. They are three points ahead of the Bundesliga standings with six wins and two draws in eight competitive matches. They continued to shine in the last third on Saturday afternoon when Die Schwarzgelben scored four goals ahead of Stuttgart.
The acquisition of this summer, Paco Alcacer, was the main catalyst in such a way. He gave us a fabulous series of six consecutive games in which he received the score (including two appearances for the Spanish team). Knowing that he came to the margin during most of these outings, we must admit that this is a great record for the former Barcelona player.

Both parties have not had the opportunity to lock themselves in the past.
Borussia Dortmund vs. Atlético de Madrid: Prediction
Dortmund has scored at least four goals in five of the last six games in all competitions. The only match that cost them the least points is the tie between the Champions League and Monaco, where they scored three goals thanks to Larsen, Alcacer, and Reus.
It will be very interesting to see if the hosts can maintain such an impressive record in the attack against the ultra-strict line of defense of Atlético de Madrid. The Mattresses were not as impressive at the beginning as BVB lately, but they will draw on a vast European experience and the remarkable success they have gained in this competition in recent years.
Diego Simeone’s men drew 1-1 at Villarreal on Saturday afternoon at the Estadio de la Cerámica. They have won only two out of six matches, so we consider it worthwhile to support the fearsome Dortmund to win with 2.50.
