<div><h2>Slavia Prague vs Dortmund</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/uefa-champions-league/sk-slavia-prague-vs-borussia-dortmund-3894512/?mtid=1" rel="nofollow"><strong>Wednesday, October 2nd, at Sinobo Stadium (Prague)</strong></a></p><p>Slavia Prague are playing superb. They are unbeaten this season across all competitions drawing just 3 in 16 matches. They are leading their domestic league standings with 29 points earned in 11 matches, 23 goals scored and just 2 conceded in the process. They qualified without problems in the UCL group stages beating the Romanian champs, CFR Cluj, 2-0 on aggregate. They kicked-off their UCL campaign keeping Serie A leaders Inter Milan to a 1-1 draw on the road being very unlucky not to win the game. On the other side, Dortmund dropped points at home for the first time this season after being held to a 2-2 draw by Werder Bremen extending their winless streak to 3 matches across all competitions. They were very unlucky not to beat Barca at home in UCL matchday 1 with captain Marco Reus missing a penalty and other important goal-scoring opportunities.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Dortmund’s Mats Hummels, who’s BVB’s best central defender in every aspect and Nico Schulz are both injured missing Dortmund’s 4 matches. This is one of the main reasons why BVB are struggling at the back conceding many goals and failing to win matches. Marco Reus still believes that a positive mindset on the pitch is the key to bounce back and return to winning ways. On the other side, Slavia won all three points against Mlada Boleslav last weekend despite the late drama! Unfortunately, they lost one of the top defenders, Kudela who was replaced at half time against Mlada while Ibrahim Traore got injured against Inter Milan and is not expected to be fully fit on time for the clash against BVB. Peter Olayinka and Nicolae Stanciu are the players to watch for Slavia.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>As expected, and predicted in matchday one, Slavia are a tough nut to crack. They are pressing high from the 1st whistle no matter their opponent and they are always going all in every single match. They are fully packed with creative and fast players and they are playing like a team giving everything on the pitch. It’s very difficult for someone to beat them at home in front of their beautiful fans who are creating a great atmosphere in every match. Despite struggling to win matches, Dortmund have one of the best attacking line in the European football. Jadon Sancho, Marco Reus, Paco Alcacer or Mario Gotze, helped from behind by Axel Witsel and Thorgan Hazard are just brilliant in front of goal. They should only work on converting their goal-scoring chances into goals because this is their only big issue. We expect a high-scoring affair with Dortmund struggling once again at the back.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Champions League Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in the match at 1.9 with Bet365</strong></em></a></p></div>
