Malaga v Borussia Dortmund Football Match – 03.04.2013 – UEFA Champions League Match Preview, Prediction, Squad Info
Malaga v Borussia Dortmund Football Match will be played on 03.04.2013 in the Estadio La Rosaleda (Málaga) for a first leg UEFA Champions League match. Jonas Eriksson will be the referee for this match.
Malaga has actually been playing well in the Champions League and a lot of people didn’t expect them to go this far in the competition. In all their Champions League matches this season they have only lost once and that was against Porto playing away with a 1-0 scoreline, before this, they haven’t lost in 8 straight games with lots of draws. Despite losing to Porto, they managed to beat them 2-0 at home in the second leg and won in aggregate. Malaga has never faced a German team before in the Champions league, it will be interesting to see if they can beat them at home.
Isco is one of their key players in this match. He is a highly rated youngster at only 20 years old with lots of talents. He will be the player to watch out for in this match. Lucas Piazon is another youngster, who is currently on loan from Chelsea and he could feature in this match.
Borussia Dortmund hasn’t lost a match in all of their Champions League matches this season, which is really surprising, as they were drawn against top side oppositions in the group stages with Ajax (Last seasons champions of the Eredivisie league in Netherlands), Manchester City (Last seasons champions of the Premier League) and Real Madrid (Last seasons champions of the La Liga).
Dortmund’s key players are: M. Götze, J. Błaszczykowski, M. Reus and R. Lewandowski. They will be the players to watch out for in this match.
I predict Borussia Dortmund will win this match even though they are playing away. I personally think Malaga are a weaker team than the teams they played in the group stages, that is why I predict Dortmund will win.
The match will begin on April 3, 2013 7:45 PM BST
Match Prediction: Borussia Dortmund Win, Correct Score 1-3
