Inter News and Form
Inter opened with a poor 1-1 home draw against Slavia Prague on match day one and then fell to a 2-1 loss at Barcelona. So that leaves them chasing Barca and Dortmund in this tough group. Those results also leave Inter on a four-match winless streak of European form (D2 L2). Within that four-match sequence, they have only scored two goals as well.
Last season they were much better off at this stage as they won their opening two fixtures. That wasn’t enough at the end of the day to get them out of the group because their form deserted them. Inter were on a six-match undefeated streak of European home form before losing at the San Siro against Eintracht Frankfurt in the last 16. That was though, notably, their fourth straight home loss against German visitors.
In their last seven games against German teams (home and away) Inter are W1 D1 L7 only. They have only three wins in their last 16 matches against Bundesliga opposition. While they have been carrying form in Serie A this season, can they start delivering the good in the Champions League?
Inter v Borussia Dortmund Head to Head
This is the first meeting since the 93/94 UEFA Cup quarter-finals
The two teams traded away wins on that occasion
The only prior meeting to that was in 1964 (Inter won 4-2 on aggregate)
Both times Inter have met Dortmund in Europe, they have gone on to lift a title
Borussia Dortmund News and Form
It has only been the two wins in their last seven Champions League games that Dortmund have collected (D2 L3). So they haven’t been in top form in the competition for a while now. They did win their last fixture though, a 2-0 win over Slavia Prague. That added to the point that they took in a home draw against Barcelona at the start of the group stage.
In their last 13 European away games, Dortmund have only picked up three victories (D4 L6) so they have been unreliable. However, narrowing that down, all those three wins have all come in their last five away games in the UEFA Champions League. This is their first visit to Italy since facing Atalanta in the 2017/18 Europa League.
Dortmund took a 1-1 draw in Italy on that occasion to win the round of 32 tie 4-3. In their last nine contests out in Italy, Borussia Dortmund are W3 D2 L4. That was after losing their first seven away games on the bounce. They will know that Inter are not looking at their sharpest in Europe and will fancy their chances.
Inter v Borussia Dortmund Tips & Odds
Who will win – Inter v Borussia Dortmund Predictions
Inter will try and shut down the attacking threat of Dortmund and that could push this to be a low scoring game. This is a big moment for Inter, but they have looked a step short of quality in the group so far. Dortmund can strike up to three points.
