Boost Dortmund odds with HT lead and Bellingham interest

Borussia Dortmund are a short price to see off Portuguese champions Sporting at home on matchday two of the Champions League, but there should be a way to boost those odds.

Marco Rose’s men lost some of the momentum they had build up during a run of four straight victories when, after being reduced to ten men, they failed to overturn a deficit against Monchengladbach on Saturday.

Fundamentally, though, they are still too good to oppose when playing at home against a team outside Europe’s elite few.

Their only home defeats in 2021 have come against Bayern Munich, Manchester City and the outlier – Eintracht Frankfurt.

Sporting are a good away team in domestic competition, but are totally untested at this level bar the spectacular collapse that saw them lose 5-1 to Ajax at the Alvalade earlier this month.

Ruben Amorim’s side lack a cutting edge and have relied on two penalties to return back-to-back wins in the Primeira before heading to Germany.
