Next in our tips for the Champions League, it's off to Germany for my match prediction for Borussia Dortmund V Club Brugge (24/11/20).
Borussia Dortmund V Club Brugge Preview
Dortmund are one of my favourite teams in Europe, and I love backing them.
It's not just because they have a couple of English players, I just love their style and the way they invest in youth.
Erling Haaland is one of those young players they have invested in, and what a player he is turning into. His talent is just frightening.
I fully expect him to lead his team to victory tonight, in a game that Dortmund do really need to win.
A win tonight would see the Germans open up a 5 point gap over their Belgian opponents. And with a tricky home fixture against Lazio next for Dortmund, they can't afford to take tonight's match lightly.

Brugge have 4 points from their 3 matches, and with Zenit to face at home, they know if they can leave Germany with something tonight, qualification becomes a possibility.
At home domestically, Brugge sit top of the league after 13 matches. It's not an immaculate record though, they've won 8, drawn 2, and lost 3.

Haaland in ridiculous form
Erling Haaland has now scored in the last 8 matches he has started. And in total this season, he has 15 goals in 12 matches (in all competitions).
He's starting to score goals at the sort of rate we've become accustomed to seeing from Messi and Ronaldo, and more recently, Robert Lewandowski.
I expect he will score again tonight, but the cynic in me says he will draw a blank sometime soon. He can't keep going like this, surely?
Haaland is also just 1/2 to score anytime, which is way too short - but in fairness, justified! While he is 23/10 to score 2 or more.
I wouldn't put anyone off backing those bets - even though I'm not!
Borussia Dortmund V Club Brugge Prediction 24/11/20
Right, I know you were expecting a Haaland to score bet before that last sentence, but I'm erring on caution, as he may be due a blank.
Instead, I'm going down the Handicap route, and hoping Haaland does score, and thus, help this bet to win!
Dortmund to win from -1 is 4/5, which is a touch shorter than I would like, but it will do for me.
If you are feeling adventurous, then -2 Handicap on Dortmund is 11/5. If Haaland gets going again tonight, I'd expect either of those two bets to win.
