Dortmund were immensely great in their second progressive 3-0 triumph over Brugge a week ago. Erling Braut Haaland scored a brace to make it six goals for the Norwegian striker in just four days, with England international Jadon Sancho’s exciting free kick adding gleam to the persuading win, moving them five points away from their adversaries in third spot with just two matches remaining.
Having lost 2-1 at home to FC Koln in the Bundesliga at the end of the week, Lucien Favre might be enticed into leaning players against Lazio to zero in on Saturday’s outing to Eintracht Frankfurt. Notwithstanding, it could be an instance of wrapping up capability and best position in the group by beating their impending rivals before that comes into the 63-year-old’s reasoning, particularly having lost 3-1 to the Italians in the opposite fixture.
Lazio were similarly noteworthy in another 3-1 triumph, with Ciro Immobile and Marco Parolo giving the Italians a directing lead during the principal half of a week ago’s match against Zenit. Be that as it may, veteran striker Artem Dyzuba struck back to give the Russians trust, before Immobile fixed his side’s triumph with a brace, taking Lazio four points away from Brugge in Group F with just two matches remaining.
Given they are contending in the group stages unexpectedly since the 2007-08 season, advancing to the knockout stages would be an enormous accomplishment for Simone Inzaghi and his side, regardless of whether the Rome-based club were ostensibly given a great group. Nonetheless, the previous Italy international won’t permit his players to lose trace of what’s most important, particularly with a last matchday standoff with Brugge still to come. A first defeat in this current season’s opposition at Dortmund would transform that last match into a decider for the two groups if the Belgians keep away from losing to Zenit.
We can imagine the two sides representing each other issues in hostile regions, at the end of the day Dortmund have the more hazardous aggressors and the more solid defense. Favre’s side ought to have enough about them to take care of business and qualify as champs of the group, leaving Lazio in the second place. Hence , we predict Borussia Dortmund to win the upcoming match.
