Borussia Dortmund went to Seville and claimed an impressive 3-2 win versus Sevilla in their Champions League last 16 first leg match. Now, the Yellow and Black have the advantage of three away goals heading into the second leg fixture at Signal Iduna Park. Edin Terzic’s team are coming off of a loss to Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga. The defeat ended a five-game unbeaten streak in all competitions for the club.
The loss to Bayern Munich was humbling and knocked Borussia Dortmund off of the high they were on. After going up 2-0 thanks to goals from Erling Haaland, Borussia Dortmund conceded four goals unanswered and loss, 4-2.
The big news for Borussia Dortmund going into the second leg versus Sevilla surrounds Haaland’s fitness. After scoring twice versus Bayern Munich, he suffered an ankle injury and was forced off the pitch. Haaland is expected to play on Tuesday night versus Sevilla.
Sevilla are in a terrible state of form going into the last 16 second leg. They are on a three-game losing streak and coming off of a 2-1 loss to 17th-placed Elche in La Liga. The defeat came just days after losing a two-goal lead in the Copa del Rey semifinal versus Barcelona and crashing out. Julen Lopetegui’s team are struggling and confidence looks low heading into the fixture on Tuesday night.
Borussia Dortmund vs Sevilla Betting Odds
Sevilla took an early lead against Borussia Dortmund in the first leg at the Roman Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium thanks to Suso. From there, Borussia Dortmund’s Mahmoud Dahoud equalised on 19 minutes. Eight minutes later, Haaland bagged his first goal of the game. The Norwegian hitman added a second just before halftime. Sevilla’s Luuk de Jong pulled another goal back with six minutes to play.
Los Rojiblancos need two goals at the very least, and to hold off Borussia Dortmund from scoring, to go through to the quarterfinals of the tournament. Sevilla’s defence has been excellent against La Liga teams, conceding just 20 times.
However, against better competition in the Champions League and based on their current form, Sevilla should struggle to keep the Germans out of the back of the net. If Haaland is absent, however, Borussia Dortmund could struggle.
Borussia Dortmund are at odds of 6/5 to win at home in the Champions League on Tuesday night. The Yellow and Black have posted a home record of 8W-4D-3L at Signal Iduna Park in all competitions. Sevilla have an away record of 12W-3D-5L on the road this term. Their last two matches, both losses, came away from home. Sevilla are at odds of 5/2 to win on Tuesday night. Meanwhile, the clubs are at odds of 17/6 to finish in a draw.
Borussia Dortmund vs Sevilla Team News
Sportsbooks have Borussia Dortmund as odds-on favourite to qualify for the next round of the Champions League. They are at odds of 2/13 to qualify for the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Terzic’s team are up 3-2 and have the benefit of three away goals. Therefore, Sevilla have to score at least twice and keep a clean sheet to go through. That is the simplest equation in regards to Sevilla qualification to the quarterfinals. Lopetegui’s team are at odds of 19/4 to qualify for the next round of the Champions League.
Haaland is the big worry due to an ankle injury. However, following the loss to Bayern Munich, Terzic explained Haaland’s withdrawal from the game was a precaution with the Champions League in mind. Jadon Sancho has a muscle injury and will miss the game. Raphael Guerreiro could make the team after missing the game versus Bayern Munich. Gio Reyna is a doubt due to a knock. Terzic will need to shuffle his team without Sancho and Reyna. Nico Schulz, Julian Brandt and Thorgan Hazard are all in line to start the game.
Lopetegui’s selection for Sevilla’s team against Elche was made with the game in Dortmund in mind. Suso and Youssef En-Nesyri should return to lead the attack after missing the Elche game. De Jong may have scored in the first leg but isn’t likely to start the game. Papu Gomez could also start on the bench after struggling to make an impact in the first leg. There is still no confirmation of forward Lucas Ocampos making the side. He continues to carry a knock and miss training and games.
