Tuesday's Well Predicted Games To Bank on For a Big Return

BORUSSIA DORTMUND V SPORTING LISBON

Borussia Dortmund will be hoping to return to winning ways here following a 1-0 Bundesliga 1 defeat in their last game at the hands of Borussia Mönchengladbach.

In that match, Borussia Dortmund managed 44% possession and 8 attempts at goal with 0 of them on target. Borussia Mönchengladbach got 15 attempts at goal with 3 on target. Denis Zakaria (37') scored for Borussia Mönchengladbach.

It has been a rare occasion in recent times that Borussia Dortmund have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that Borussia Dortmund have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 11 goals during that time. In any event, time will tell if that pattern shall be maintained here in this match or not.

Sporting Lisbon head into the encounter following on from a 1-0 Primeira Liga win with the downing of Marítimo in their previous fixture.

In that match, Sporting Lisbon had 72% possession and 25 shots at goal with 7 on target. The scorer for Sporting Lisbon was Pedro Porro (98'). Marítimo had 4 attempts at goal with 0 on target.

For 5 of the past 6 clashes featuring Sporting Lisbon, a relatively low number of goals have been struck between them and their opposition. The overall average goals scored per game in that spell is a paltry 2.33, with the number of goals averaged by Sportinguistas being 1.17.

Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

AC MILAN V ATLETICO MADRID

AC Milan, who won their previous game, will hope for a similar result following the 1-2 Serie A victory against Spezia.

In that game, AC Milan managed 63% possession and 18 shots on goal with 5 on target. For AC Milan, the goalscorers were Daniel Maldini (48') and Brahim Díaz (86'). For their opponents, Spezia got 8 attempts on goal with 2 on target. Daniele Verde (80') was the scorer for Spezia.

AC Milan haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, netting in one hundred percent of their last 6 matches.

They have managed to rack up 13 during that time while also conceding a total of 6.

Following on from a loss in their previous game against Alaves in La Liga competition, Atlético Madrid will be aiming to make amends here.

In that game, Atlético Madrid managed 71% possession and 13 shots at goal with 1 of them on target. On the other side, Alaves had 7 shots at goal with 1 on target. Laguardia (4') was the scorer for Alaves.

In the course of their six latest matches, Diego Simeone's Atlético Madrid have slotted home a total of 6 times, earning them a goals per game average of 1.

Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

PORTO V LIVERPOOL

Porto, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 1-2 Primeira Liga victory vs Gil Vicente.

In that game, Porto had 64% possession and 16 attempts at goal with 8 on target. For Porto, goals were scored by Mehdi Taremi (9') and Sérgio Oliveira (89'). Gil Vicente got 8 shots at goal with 4 of them on target. Samuel Lino (24') scored for Gil Vicente.

Their latest results reveal that not much more can be done by the Porto backline. Porto have given the opposition little, resulting in the total number of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their previous six clashes standing at 3.

In their previous fixture, Liverpool drew 3-3 in the Premier League tie with Brentford.

In that game, Liverpool managed 67% possession and 16 shots at goal with 6 of them on target. For Liverpool, the goalscorers were Diogo Jota (31'), Mohamed Salah (54') and Curtis Jones (67'). Brentford got 12 shots on goal with 4 on target. Ethan Pinnock (27'), Vitaly Janelt (63') and Yoane Wissa (82') scored for Brentford.

In as many as 5 of the previous 6 clashes involving Liverpool, three or more goals have gone in. The overall average goals scored per game within that spell is 3.67, with the average number of goals for Liverpool standing at 2.67. We will just have to see if that trend can be sustained into this next match.

Prediction: Both teams to score
