Erling Haaland To Score Anytime
Dortmund roared to a 2-0 lead inside 10 minutes over Bayern at the weekend before eventually being pegged back to a 4-2 defeat. Jadon Sancho may be missing through injury at present but replacement Thorgan Hazard looked sharp, though of course the star man in attack is Erling Haaland.
He certainly did his bit, scoring both of the opening goals, and few would bet against him adding to his tally here.
The Norwegian’s stats are truly stunning and his brace in the first leg took him to 18 Champions League goals from just 13 appearances, across his time with both Salzburg and Dortmund.
He only failed to score in two of these games, against heavyweights Liverpool and PSG, while he’s scored twice in each of his last three in this tournament.
With 29 goals in 28 appearances so far this season, including a strike every 55 minutes in the Champions League, he appears the obvious go-to man in the goalscorer markets.
Sevilla went into the first leg on the back of an eight-game winning streak, during which time they registered seven clean sheets.
However, the 3-2 defeat to Dortmund sparked a run of four losses from five outings, as they’ve fallen off the pace domestically and been dumped out of the Copa del Rey.
The Spanish side conceded at least twice in each of those defeats, and given Dortmund only know how to play on the front foot, the German outfit should cause them more problems.
Dortmund To Win And Over 2.5 Goals
Indeed, Dortmund have scored at least twice in eight of their last 10 appearances, while both teams have scored in 10 of their past 13.
The hosts can be susceptible at the back and if Sevilla are going to overturn the deficit, they’re going to have to take an approach that is largely alien to them. Dortmund’s gung-ho approach often leads to high-scoring affairs, and seven of their last 10 matches have featured at least four goals.
Teams that have taken a one-goal advantage from the first leg away from home in the Champions League typically have a good record back at home.
They’re W16-D4-L4 in the returns since 2007/08, and given Sevilla’s recent showings, the hosts look worth siding with in this one.
In fact, Dortmund have only lost once in 11 home Champions League matches since 2018/19, winning five of seven unbeaten games since the start of last season, while all but one of their seven victories over this entire period saw at least three goals.
