Newcastle vs Borussia Dortmund Betting Preview
Newcastle held AC Milan to a 0-0 draw in their first Champions League game before hammering PSG 4-1 at St. James' Park to sit top of Group F. The Magpies are unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions and warmed up for this clash by thumping Crystal Palace 4-0 in Premier League over the weekend. Eddie Howe's men have also recorded wins against Brentford, Manchester City, Burnley and Sheffield United, as well as a draw away at West Ham (with twenty two goals scored and only three conceded in the last 8 outings).
Borussia Dortmund sit bottom of the group after losing 2-0 to Paris Saint-Germain and also recording a goalless draw with AC Milan. Anyway, the defeat at Parc Des Princes remains their only slip in 11 matches all season. The Bundesliga outfit are in flying form on the domestic front after winning their last five league games. They are two points shy of table-toppers Bayer Leverkusen with a W6 D2 record after 8 matchweeks. They have scored 17 goals in the league but are yet to score a goal in two European matches.
Online bookies are showing favouritism to the Magpies who are currently 8/13 on BetUK. The visiting Dortmund side are best priced at 19/4 on SpreadEx to pick up three points, while a draw pays 10/3 on Bet365.
Newcastle (4-3-3): Pope; Trippier, Lascelles, Schar, Burn; Longstaff, Guimaraes, Joelinton; Almiron, Isak, Gordon
Newcastle's preparations for the game have been overshadowed by Sandro Tonali's imminent gambling ban. The Italian is likely to play his last game this season before receive a 10-12 months ban. Moreover, Sven Botman missed last Saturday's match through injury and is likely to be unavailable once again. Matt Ritchie, Javier Manquillo, Harvey Barnes are also out while Joe Willock is back in training but is expected to make the bench at maximum. Jamaal Lascelles will partner Fabian Schar as centre-back, while Alexander Isak should get the nod over Calum Wilson up front.
Borussia Dortmund (4-2-3-1): Kobel; Wolf, Hummels, Schlotterbeck, Bensebaini; Can, Nmecha; Brandt, Reus, Malen; Fullkrug
Julian Ryerson is expected to miss out through illness, with Mateu Morey, Julien Duranville and Thomas Meunier more long-term absentees. Edin Terzic could also be without Youssoufa Moukoko amid a thigh strain, meaning Niclas Fullkrug could deputise as central forward. The German international is likely to be supported by Marko Reus, Julian Brandt and Donyell Male while Emre Can and Felix Nmecha are expected to anchor the midfield.
Newcastle vs Borussia Dortmund Betting Tips
Newcastle have been almost faultless in 7 home games this season as Liverpool are the only side to come away from St James’ with any points (a 2-1 defeat back in August).
The Magpies have scored 8 goals in the last two outings on their own pitch, and 20 goals in the last six league and cup matches since the 0-0 draw at AC Milan.
Dortmund are performing very well in Bundesliga but they have struggled so far in this tournament, showing they are not quite the force on the continental stage that they were a decade or so ago.
Newcastle are flying right now and we back a seventh home win of the season in a high-scoring affair.
We back a 3-1 Newcastle win. The Both Teams To Score option is also appealing despite Eddie Howe's men have conceded just once in their last five home outings.
