Real Madrid Prepare for Key Clash Against Bor Dortmund
On November 6th Real Madrid will take on Bor Dortmund in the Champions League and it is absolutely essential that they maintain the winning momentum from their impressive performance against Real Zaragoza.
On paper Real Madrid is definitely favourite to win. Bookmakers have placed them miles ahead of the competition with odds of 10/21 to win; the best odds on a Bor Durtmund win are 89/13.
In their last outing against Borussia Dortmund, Madrid suffered a damaging loss and they cannot afford to lose again in their tough group.
At present Madrid is in a qualifying position just one point off the reigning champions, however, if they fail to win the next match it means that they will have no more room for error.
If they win against Dortmund then it will have an excellent impact on the team’s Champions League campaign and coach Jose Mourinho should try and carry over the team’s momentum from their previous match.
The team played fantastically against Zaragoza with players such as Luka Modric and Sergio Ramos putting in particularly impressive performances.
If Mourinho has any sense he’ll keep these strong players in the starting team and they should help lead the side to a convincing victory.
