Pick of the day #53: Borussia Dortmund – Real Madrid
Slow activity from me lately, but there will be large changes soon. I will of course mention that here when it happens…
Tomorrow the first leg in the second semi final in Champions League takes place in Dortmund when Real Madrid visit Westfalenstadion. Both teams have great offensive qualities and I strongly believe that we will see some goals here. The bookies offer surprisingly high prices on the over market. I have chosen the ordinary 2.5 line to 1.72, but was considering the 2.75 and 3 Asian lines as well. For comparison the bookies offer around 1.55 for the BTTS-bet.
Since this is the first game of two there is always a risk of cautious play, but I cannot see BvB play differently than usual.
The Mario Götze affair could perhaps affect the minds of the Dortmund players, but the importance of the game should prevent that from happening.
