Deadly Dortmund set to open up troubled Monaco

Lucien Favre's exciting team have scored 14 goals at home

BT Sport Extra, 8pm Wednesday

Borussia Dortmund and Monaco are enjoying contrasting fortunes in the early stages of their domestic seasons.

German giants Dortmund top the Bundesliga table after six matches and are a perfect three from three at the Westfalenstadion, scoring 14 home goals including a 7-0 drubbing of Nuremberg.

Monaco, on the hand, are languishing in 18th in Ligue 1 and struggling to cope with another raft of high-profile summer departures.

It’s no surprise to see BVB dominate the match betting and Lucien Favre’s exciting team are likely to stamp their authority over the principality club.

Monaco may be struggling but they carry a goal threat in Radamel Falcao and could create chances in a game that is likely to be stretched as the hosts bomb forward. Goals look likely.

Recommendation
Dortmund to win & over 2.5 goals
