Borussia Dortmund v Sporting Lisbon: Germans can't stop conceding

Clean sheets are a rarity for Dortmund this season and Dan Fitch is backing Sporting Lisbon to continue that trend in this Group C clash.

Dortmund will give Sporting chance

Borussia Dortmund will be hoping to build on a solid start in Group C, when they take on Sporting Lisbon on Tuesday.

The Germans won their first match 2-1 away in Besiktas. That victory formed part of a four-game winning streak, which ended at the weekend when Dortmund lost 1-0 at Borussia Monchengladbach.

Mahmoud Dahoud was sent off in the first-half for Dortmund, but they had already gone behind. Conceding goals is something of a habit for this team, who have not kept a clean sheet in eight games.

That will give Sporting Lisbon some encouragement, which is much needed after a very poor start to their Group C campaign. Sporting were thrashed 5-1 at home to Ajax, which is the sort of result that it's difficult to recover from. They have bounced back from that humbling defeat in the Primeira Liga, beating Estoril 1-0 and then at the weekend winning by the same scoreline against Martimo.

Goals are reliable with Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund are the big favourites at 1.36, with the draw at 5.6 and Sporting Lisbon at 9.8.

Dortmund's defensive issues make it relatively easy to find some value. Both teams to score is 1.82 and has landed in seven of their last eight games. A Borussia Dortmund win and both teams to score is 2.63.

The 1-0 defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach over the weekend, was the first game from Dortmund's total of nine, in which at least three goals were not scored. Over 2.5 goals is unsurprisingly a short price at 1.52, but when combined with a home win, it gives you another opportunity to back the hosts, this time at odds of 1.8.
