Borussia Dortmund take on the visitors Salzburg at “Signal Iduna Park” in the first-leg fight of the 1/8 final stage of the UEFA Europa League. The match will be played in Dortmund on Thursday, March 8th.
Borussia Dortmund have taken on a marvelous competitive form in recent month. The team has finally found its game. Unfortunately, “Die Schwarzgelben” have failed the UEFA Champions League as the club occupied only the third place in Group H standings with only two points gained in a rivalry against Real Madrid, Tottenham and APOEL. The side’s offense disappointed greatly with just seven scored goals, however, its defense looked even weaker, having conceded 13 goals. In the previous clashes conducted in front of their supporters Borussia Dortmund have earned 1:1 draw against FC Augsburg, broke Atalanta 3:2 and Hamburger SV 2:0.

In their turn, Salzburg have been remaining the strongest club of Austria for a long time already, performing each season in the Eurocups. “Die Roten Bullen” have settled on the first position in Group I table of the UEFA Europa League, having got 12 points in the battles against Marseille, Konyaspor and Guimaraes. Salzburg showed unconvincing play in attack, having scored seven goals unlike their defense which looked awesome with only one goal conceded. In the latest tackles conducted on the road “Die Roten Bullen” have managed to beat Sturm Graz 4:2, Altach 1:0 and deserved 2:2 draw against Real Sociedad.
It is quite an easy task to define the favourite of the forthcoming encounter. Borussia Dortmund look much better than their opponent, besides, “Die Schwarzgelben” have stronger footballers in their roster, thus, “Die Roten Bullen” are not likely to give a fight to the hosts.
Prediction for the match: Borussia Dortmund to win.
