When: October 25, Wednesday, 9 pm CETWhere: St. James’ Park, Newcastle, England
The Magpies are in excellent form, and they want to capitalize on that. Meanwhile, Dortmund, too, plays solid football, even though they had several slips along the way. The Millionaires are in a slightly worse situation here, because they have only one point after two UEFA Champions League contests. On the other hand, Newcastle collected four, and with a victory here, they would open the door to the knockout stage.
Newcastle vs. Dortmund Preview
The Magpies had seven games in a row without a defeat until the international break, and we can say that Eddie Howe wasn’t that happy because the competition stopped. We have to mention their fantastic victory over PSG, 4-1, where they displayed amazing football.
Even though the Saints aren’t as strong as before, nobody expected to see Mbappe and the boys humiliated like that. Again, we saw different players scoring goals, which has become a sort of characteristic of this unit. For instance, in an 8-0 win over Sheffield United, eight different guys netted.
Newcastle is a very patient team that knows when to pump up the volume or to calm down. The defense showed progress after a slow start, posting several clean sheets and reminding everyone about its quality.
Edin Terzic’s boys oscillate, which is nothing new for this unit. Still, the Millionaires had only one loss so far, and it was in the UEFA Champions League, against PSG on the road.
They were solid in that event, missing a few chances in the first 45 minutes, before significantly slowing down in the second half. PSG used that to break the rivals and win. The game against Milan at Signal Iduna showed numerous weaknesses in the back line, and even though Borussia took one point, that was pure luck.
Reuss and the guys missed a couple of golden opportunities for scoring, but on the other side, we’ve seen Milan constantly threatening Kobel. The defense is shaky this year, and the numbers are proving our claim.

Newcastle vs. Dortmund Predictions
The way Newcastle plays at home forces us to bet on their victory here. Additionally, Borussia’s performances on the road are significantly worse than at home, and we saw that in Paris and Bochum. On the other hand, apart from the contest against Liverpool, the Magpies were excellent at St. James’ Park, and all this points to their victory here. We also expect the home unit to score at least two goals.
