Dortmund vs PSG – German leaders unbeaten against French

| 21.10.2010

Borussia Dortmund may not be in the greatest form at home in European competition, but their fine record against French opposition will give them plenty of confidence ahead of hosting Paris St Germain in the Europa League.

The current Bundesliga leaders are unbeaten in ten games against teams from France and have won three of these five meetings in Germany.

Dortmund have never squared off with PSG before, but are 4/6 to take victory in the maiden meeting between the pair.

PSG currently sit top of Group J after winning their first two outings without conceding a goal and are 9/2 to beat Dortmund.

With Dortmund having only triumphed in one of their last six European home games, Antoine Kombouare’s team will fancy their chances of extending their 100 per cent winning start.

Dortmund have been pretty tight in defence domestically this season and the 6/1 offered for a 2-0 win in the correct scoreline market could prove profitable.

Seville picked up a solid 1-0 win in Dortmund in their last Champions League game and they will be looking to repeat this performance in their clash with Karpaty Lviv.

The Ukrainians have lost their opening two Group J fixtures, but were slightly unfortunate in their previous home game with Dortmund when two late goals saw them suffer a 4-3 reverse.

Sevilla have showed signs of improvement under new boss Gregorio Manzano, who took control just prior to the Dortmund win, and they are 10/11 to beat Karpaty.

Furthermore, goalkeeper Andres Palop will have fond memories of playing Ukrainian opponents as he scored against Shakhtar Donetsk in the 2007 UEFA Cup.

Karpaty are 3/1 to beat Sevilla, with Mykhaylo Kopolovets 10/1 to open the scoring.

PSG are currently the slender favourites to top Group J at 11/8, while Dortmund could represent the best value at 5/2. See the whole Group J Europa League betting odds market.
