Monaco Vs Borussia Dortmund Live Online Commentary
The visiting side Borussia Dortmund need a mountain to climb if they want to turn around a 3-2 home defeat from the first leg when they visit Monaco for the second leg on Wednesday evening. As regards BVB team news ahead of this match: central defender Marc Bartra is unlikely to be available after his ordeal last week, whilst defender Erik Durm, and midfielders Andre Schurrle and Mario Gotze are definitely out.
The form guide tips in the favour of the French team as they have a solid record at home turf in all competitions. They lost only once in all tournaments at Stade Louis with a record 23 wins, 2 draws from 26 matches. Meanwhile, Dortmund struggled against smaller teams while playing away from home. They were only able to register 2 wins from their last 7 away games, drawn 2 and lost 4.
To be honest, Monaco are carrying a huge advantage into this second leg tie. Three goals scored on the road plus the win put them in a relaxed mode. Whereas Dortmund must win this clear by 2 goal margin. The situation suits the Ligue 1 side, with only 2 teams have overturned a first leg home defeat in entire UEFA Champions League history. Defender Djibril Sidibe, midfielder Boschilia, and striker Guido Carrillo are sidelined for the hosts.
