Borussia Dortmund kicked off their Group C campaign with a 2-1 win at Besiktas, while Sporting could not have got off to a worse start as Sebastien Haller’s four goals gave Ajax a stunning 5-1 win in Portugal.

The Germans have won all three home games in the Bundesliga and are 1.4 to beat Porto or 2.7 to win and concede, bearing in mind six of their seven matches this season have produced goals at both ends, excluding the cup competitions.

Dortmund are aiming to bounce back after losing at Borussia Mönchengladbach 1-0 in the Bundesliga last Saturday that snapped their four-game winning streak in all competitions. Die Schwarzgelben were without injured striker Erling Haaland, who leads the Bundesliga with seven goals and also scored against Besiktas. 

The Portuguese champions are unbeaten domestically but they have struggled to get past mediocre teams and so Dortmund to win both halves at 3.25 or a home win and over 3.5 goals look worth considering in our Champions League betting tips. 

Porto followed up their disappointing Champions League opener with 1-0 wins over Estoril and Marítimo in the Primeira Liga. Pedro Porro scored in each game.

Dortmund won both meetings against Sporting in the 2016 Champions League group stage.

Verdict

We expect both teams to score with Dortmund snatching a home win.
