Sevilla vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction & Match Preview

Sevilla vs Borussia Dortmund
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 17 February 2021
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, Sevilla.

Sevilla will be aiming to extend their winning run to nine games when they host Borussia Dortmund at their Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in the Champions League last 16, first leg. 


Los Sevillanos look unstoppable at the moments, and it is no wonder bookie see them as slim favourites to win the first leg. 

All En Nesyri, Kounde, and Fernando should be recalled to the starting XI after the trio was rested in the 1-0 win over Huesca.

Since both Ocampos and Navas miss the game with injuries, home win should not be considered. 

Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, did well to win Group F, with the German side leaving the likes of Lazio, Club Brugge, and Zenit behind them. 

Edin Terzic’s troops, though have been anything but impressive in the Bundesliga this season, which is the main reason why share of spoils is on the cards. 

Witsel, Zagadou, Burki, Piszczek, and Schmelzer remain sidelined with injuries, while Meunier is a major doubt.
