APOEL couldn’t have dreamed of a harder group to be drawn in in the Champions League, and as you would expect with Real Madrid, Tottenham, and Borussia Dortmund surrounding them their chances of qualifying for anything past the group stages are incredibly slim.
APOEL haven’t had the best of seasons all round really. Their domestic win on Friday makes it three wins, two draws, and four defeats from their last nine competitive matches, but at home on Tuesday they will be hoping to put up a fight.
However, Borussia Dortmund aren’t having the best of times either. They were widely tipped to be in the top two along with Real Madrid, but a defeat at Wembley in gameweek one was followed by a home loss to Real Madrid to leave them pointless and six points adrift of the top two. They need to make some ground up, and with the top two playing each other on Tuesday this is the perfect opportunity to do so.
Borussia Dortmund’s weekend was less fruitful as they lost a hot tempered home match against RB Leipzig, resigning them to their first league defeat of the season but still keeping them top of the Bundesliga after seven games.
