Re: Borussia Dortmund v Napoli > Tuesday November 26th Yes Dortmund is in really bad form. Their complete defense is injured. Hummels and Subotic are out! It's a big blow. Bayern have demonstrated it. Also new CB Friedrich can not play in CL. So as CB will most probably play Sokratis/Bender. Sokratis is solid but Bender is normally CDM player. Dortmund also have problems with their winger defenders. Pisczek is now avaiable but he can't play 90 mins due to his injury in the last months. So Großkeutz and maybe Durm will play as LB and RB. Dortmund must win this game and they should play more offence than against bayern. Napoli has also a great offence which will make big problems to Dortmunds defence. I believe in a over match, but odds are too low. So i think Both teams to score @1,62 is the best!

There is another thread for this match. Please do not post it on here. Back to the topic, does anyone think Dortmund can win this match?

Re: Borussia Dortmund v Napoli > Tuesday November 26th This is a game Dortmund need to win. I don't think you can read to much into the home loss against Bayern. It's tough for every team in Europe to play against Bayern, and once the 1st goal went in it was catch-up soccer. Apart from that game Dortmund have been very good at home. Napoli have lost 2 away games in the league (Against Juventus and Roma which is kind of expected), but the defeat to Parma at home was very poor. The Italian game seems so slow compared to Germany and England, and my feeling is that Napoli will get overrun in this game. The pace and intensity will hurt them. Happy to take the 1.55 for the home win for 2 units

Re: Borussia Dortmund v Napoli > Tuesday November 26th The best form of defence for dortmund may be to attack and plenty of possesion,they will be highly motivated to beat napoli because of events in the match in italy,a bad tempered game in which the manager and keeper were sent off.Napoli the other day without hamsik were struggling and i think they will struggle tonight.My opinion on the motivation of dortmund tonight is enough to get me to bet on a home win.bet 365 8/15.

Re: Borussia Dortmund v Napoli > Tuesday November 26th

Any reasoning behind this? Napoli also needs to win..
Dortmund need this win more badly than Napoli though. Dortmund can't even afford to draw. They need to win or else they are out. Napoli can lose and still beat Arsenal in their last match and qualify.

Re: Borussia Dortmund v Napoli > Tuesday November 26th Tournament standings obligate Dortmund to play only for the victory. However, the last match versus “Bayern Munich” reflected how vulnerable Borussia Dortmund can be without the players they are missing in the squad. Mainly, they do have problems in defence and indeed will be missing 4 regular defenders: Schmel, Hummels, Subotic and Pizchek. From their last game you could see Bayern really took advantage of it. Dortmund is still very powerful according their attacking abilities as they have a number of brilliant players in this department. Levandowki and company will seek to prove that their last home game vs Bayern where they didn’t score a goal was a pure accident. Indeed, it’s hard to imagine that Borussia will not score at home 2 games in a row. Marek Hamsik will be absent for Napoli and will be replaced by Pandev. In additions, Napoli have great attacking players in the squad like Insinho, Callejon and world-class striker of Higuain. These guys certainly know how to get away from defenders using their technique and improvisation. Let’s compare Napoli’s attack to their opponents defence. From the flanks: Grosskreutz and Durm ( who didn’t look the best vs Bayern and therefore was replaced). In the centre zone of defense we will see Sokratis and most likely Kehl or Bender. Socratis possesses excellent physical and defensive abilities, but he is prone to tactical mistake, so therefore it will be extremely difficult for him against very non-standard players versus Napoli attacking line. Kehl and Bender are not defenders at all and will be playing in this position from a hopelessness. Therefore, only naïve people can expect a great performance by Dortmund defenders against a superb attacking line of Napoli. Moreover, it’s worth to mention that we won’t see Gyundogan playing for the home side as he is injured. That way, everything suggests that Napoli will have a really easy job to score for an extremely weakened defenders or BVB. “Bayern Munich” could score 3 times and there are no reasons we can’t expect goals scored from Napoli. So what according Borrusia? Certainly they won’t give up and will look their chances up front, no doubt about that. Secondly, Dortmund fans will not forgive if Borussia will lose and not score again. Thirdly, Borussia possess great attackers. There is no reason to believe that they score one or more goals. Another time maybe probably very closed playing style for Borussia, because the problems in defensive line are really outstanding and they’ll try play so careful. Only not today! If Borussia will play in closed style, then Napoli with great pleasure accept it and will gain the draw. But you know that draw is equivalent to defeat for Dortmund. They should be able to find the success near a gate of competitors. So Borussia will open their formation and Napoli will get many chances to score. We can’t know the a result of this match. Possibly that Borussia will win due to superior attack and over-motivation. But the troubles in defend may be fatal for them that will close the way to play-off. Because I don’t recommend try to guess the result but place a reliable bet – Both To Teams Score. Good luck!
