Slavia Prague News and Form
Slavia Prague earned a pretty useful point against Inter at the San Siro on matchday one. They were heading for three points in that until they were denied in stoppage time. That result leaves Slavia Prague at D2 L2 in their four previous away games in the UEFA Champions League group stage. Yes, this is just the second time that they have been here, their previous appearance coming 12 years ago when they took third place behind Arsenal and Sevilla. They were in the Europa League last season where they reached the quarter-final stage, being stopped by eventual winners Chelsea.
They started this campaign in the play-offs winning both legs against Cluj 1-0. They had won just one of their previous 15 Champions League games prior to that playoff ties with Cluj. In their previous Champions League group stage campaign they took five points from their matches, four of those points being earned at home. They have lost only one of their last eight European home games (W4 D3) and took a clean sheet in five of those. They are on a three-match losing streak against German sides without scoring, winning one of their last nine against Bundlesiga opponents (D3 L5).

Borussia Dortmund News and Form
Dortmund picked up a home point against Barcelona on matchday one. They had enough chances to win that though and had the Spaniards rattled. Their biggest chance was a missed spot kick by Marco Reus. It leaves Dortmund with only one win in their last six Champions League fixtures (D2 L3). Remarkably they have failed to score in five of those six games, including their last three. You look at their domestic form in the Bundesliga and they are a wonderful explosive attacking side.
Dortmund took a W2 L1 record on their group stage travels, the defeat happening at Atletico Madrid. They only conceded in one of their group stage fixtures last season, shipping just two goals in that game at Atletico. In their last twelve games out on the road in Europe, Borussia Dortmund have managed just two victories (D4 L6). Their last two visits to the Czech Republic have ended in a goalless draw, but they haven’t been back there since 2005. They hold a W2 D1 record in Prague, scoring seven unanswered goals in those fixtures.
