On paper this looks a close match up and the main reason behind this is Malaga’s impressive home form in this competition. In this seasons group stage they won twice including victory against AC Milan, drew once and then beat Porto 2-0 in the knockout stage so help their progression to this point.
Dortmund overcame the group of death, going unbeaten and continuing that run until the knock-out stage where they brushed aside Shakhtar with a 2-2 draw in Ukraine followed by a 3-0 win back home. That draw added to respectable draws at Manchester City and Real Madrid in the group, followed by a 4-1 thumping of Ajax in Amsterdam.
In all four of Dortmund’s away matches this season both teams have scored and that will be one of bets again here. It is currently a best price 4/5 (Betfred).
Dortmund will settle for a draw tonight with the view to taking Malaga back to Germany and winning there so side with a 1-1 draw on the correct score market at 13/2 with Bet Victor. The braver punter could also have a few quid on the 2-2 draw at 16/1 with the same firm.
