Wednesday night sees 1997 UEFA Champions League winners Borussia Dortmund host Lazio at the Signal Iduna Park, where a win would see the hosts confirmed as winners of Group F.Dortmund suffered a 2-1 defeat against FC Koln on the weekend where they dominated the game but were made to pay for several missed opportunities. BVB currently sit four points behind Bayern Munich following the weekend’s results. Dortmund are the second top goalscorers in the Bundesliga with 21 goals in nine matches, predictably only Bayern have scored more.
Meanwhile, Lazio come into matchday five currently sitting ninth in Serie A, having been beaten 3-1 at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday by Udinese, with the away side starting the weekend just above the relegation zone. Lazio have a poor defensive record in the league so far this season, having already conceded 16 goals in just nine games.
A man who will be looking to make amends and capitalise on any defensive errors by the away side is Norwegian striker Erling Haaland, who is one of the top goalscorers in all of Europe, having scored a remarkable tally of 16 goals in 12 games, averaging a goal every 62 minutes doing so with just 42 shots. As it stands, Haaland is on course to potentially win the Champions League Golden Boot, as he leads the goalscoring charts with six goals in four games.
Jadon Sancho will also be looking to add to his good start in the Champions League, as the English winger has set the competition alight this season with two goals and one assist in three games. Haaland and Sancho to both score against the Italian outfit is priced at 4/1 - click the link to claim this bet in your bet slip!
