Galatasaray vs Borussia Dortmund (Champions League, 22.10.2014)

Galatasaray play at home in attempt to pick up further points in group D, while Borussia Dortmund will try to shake off their horrible Bundesliga form. The visitors are on the first place in the group table with six points, a stark contrast to the 14th place in Bundesliga, meanwhile Galatasaray are on the second place in the domestic league and last in the Champions League group.

Against German teams, Galatasaray have a poor record, having only won twice in 13 matches. They are going like clockwork in Turkey and with three consecutive league wins they stand one point behind the leaders. Their most recent result is a win over Fenerbahce where Sneijder scored two wonder goals. They have no new injuries, unlike Dortmund with Erik Durm out due to a thigh injury. Felipe Melo and Dzemaili are both one booking away from suspension which is why 888sport gave them2.80 and respectively 3.10 odds to get booked.
Borussia Dortmund are having one of the worst starts in their Bundesliga history and showing no signs of improvement though they got some of their injured players back. The one tipped to make the most impact on a frail Dortmund side is Marco Reus, forced to replace Durm in the match against Cologne. Ciro Immobile apparently can only score during Champions League games which is why Dortmund could end up winning this encounter. But the visitors are not a team to focus on one player to win; gone are the days when Lewandowski was the one deciding the matches. Now, Dortmund have Reus, Ramos, Aubameyang and sometimes Mkhitaryan.

Schmelzer broke his hand in the match against Hamburg and will be sidelined for a few weeks, Błaszczykowski who returned to training earlier last week, got a thigh strain and will miss another month of matches. The road for the visitors to get back on track starts on Wednesday and even the bookies back them to win. 888sport gives Dortmund 1.78 odds to win, Galatasaray 4.55 and a draw has 3.80 odds. The visitors to lead at half time is at 2.35 odds, Galatasaray 4.50 and Dortmund to score in both halves 2.55 odds. An even number of corners for the match 1.90 odds, and Galatasaray to commit the most fouls has 1.60 odds, Borussia Dortmund 2.60. We are betting 7 units on Marco Reus to score anytime at 2.55 odds with 888sport.
