Dan Fitch is backing Real Madrid to inflict another Champions League defeat on Borussia Dortmund, but thinks that the vistors can find the net.

"Dortmund are at least likely to put up a fight and have scored in 18 consecutive matches, including the reverse fixture against Real."

Back both teams to score and Real Madrid to win at [2.60]

Real Madrid [1.49] v Borussia Dortmund [6.8]; The Draw [5.3]

Struggling Dortmund in need of points

When the draw was made for Group H it seemed likely that this final fixture between two of the biggest clubs in Europe might well decide which one advanced to the knockout stage as top seeds.

Instead Tottenham have already won the group and Real Madrid have secured second place. All that leaves Borussia Dortmund to play for is the spot in the Europa League for finishing third.

Dortmund are yet to win a game in the competition and must hope that an under-strength Spurs side can do them a favour by beating APOEL, which would likely be enough for the Germans to finish third, regardless of their result in Madrid.

Considering Dortmund's form it might come to that. They have failed to win any of their last four games, which includes a spectacular collapse at home against Schalke in which they were 4-0 up after 25 minutes, only to draw 4-4. Their opponents Real are unbeaten in six, though three of those games have been draws, including their match against Athletic Bilbao at the weekend.

Madrid can claim final win

Real Madrid are the [1.49] favourites, with the draw at [5.3] and Dortmund at [6.8].

It's a short price for a Madrid side that have nothing to play for and may take the opportunity to rotate, but it's hard to have faith in Dortmund, who are in awful form under their under pressure new manager Peter Bosz.

Dortmund are at least likely to put up a fight and have scored in 18 consecutive matches, including the reverse fixture against Real. Combine Both Teams To Score and Real Madrid To Win at [2.60].
