Borussia Dortmund vs Galatasaray (Champions League, 04.11.2014)

Borussia Dortmund return to Champions League action in the only competition that still has the Germans acting like their old selves as they host Galatasaray. The bookmakers have no doubt in signaling Dortmund as the favorites to win, despite the fact that they are now in the Bundesliga’s relegation zone.

Nobody knows exactly what happened to Dortmund in the domestic competition, and when not even your captain can provide a reason, the fans are left at a loss altogether. Their latest stunt comes from the 2-1 defeat to Bayern Munich, where even if we saw a glimpse of the old Dortmund side, it wasn’t enough for a win. Mats Hummels will be out for three weeks following a foot injury picked up during the weekend, and Subotic needs to step up his game if he wants Weidenfeller to keep another clean sheet.
Meanwhile, Galatasaray are the opposite of Dortmund in Champions League, they excel in their domestic league, but are on the last place in their Champions League group, with only one point from three games. Their recent league game saw Sneijder and Pandev on the bench which can only point towards a sure start against Dortmund as while the hosts will play for a qualification from the first place, Galatasaray will be going home if they lose.

Borussia Dortmund thrived on counter attacks when they were at their best, but now they don’t do that pressing game anymore which of course, leaves them exposed at the back where without Hummels they are a disaster. The front line does not look any better, as while Ramos, Aubameyang and Reus could become Borussia Dortmund’s deadliest trio, Klopp seems to be insisting on an Immobile, Reus and Mkhitaryan one, which is not as effective if you look at the top scorer list of the competition.
