The Group of Death continues to give us tasty fixtures, as Dortmund travel to Milan to take on the Rossoneri: glory awaits the winner of this fixture. This match will likely determine the outcome for both sides, as Dortmund sit top of the group at 7 points. PSG Follow in second at 6, and Milan right after at 5. This is easily the most competitive group this year and we can expect more upsets in the matchdays to come. Both teams come into this game following a domestic victory in the league. Milan defeated Fiorentina 1-0 with a Hernandez penalty, while Dortmund won 3-2 against Monchengladbach. They are also on similar trajectories in their respective leagues, with Dortmund 4th in the Bundesliga, while Milan sit third. This will likely be a close game, as was the opposing fixture in Dortmund which ended 0-0.

This time around, both sides need to get a result: Dortmund would qualify with a win, while a Milan victory would ensure that even a draw at Newcastle would suffice. In terms of squad availability, Milan are missing Leao for this clash, as well as Kalulu, Bennacer, Kjaer and Musah. Dortmund have an injury crisis of their own, as Sule and Sabitzer are likely out for this one, along with Nmecha. We predict a tight game here: Milan have not lost at home in the Champions League so far this season, but Dortmund do top the group. An Under 2.5 could be a good call, although the game may open up more in the second half.

This is a difficult fixture to call: we’ll opt for the draw here (3.50) which would help neither team. However, if one side wins, glory awaits them as the Round of 16 are in sight.

AC Milan to Win – 2.14

Draw – 3.50

Dortmund to Win – 3.33
