Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid Betting Tips

Dortmund’s success relies heavily on their defensive foundation consisting of goalkeeper Gregor Kobel and centre-backs Mats Hummels and Nico Schlotterbeck, all who have been in excellent form recently. Despite this challenging defensive setup, Real Madrid’s front line features the likes of Rodrygo and Vinícius Júnior, who have both been prolific throughout the tournament. Meanwhile, Dortmund’s dynamic wingers Jadon Sancho and Karim Adeyemi possess the speed and skill to trouble Madrid’s defence.
