After losing against Tottenham by two goals margin, Borussia Dortmund is in a tricky situation before the match against reigning European champion. Nobody expects their victory and yet they will be under immense pressure to snatch at least a point in the upcoming game. Borussia is in an excellent form, but the teams they defeated in Bundesliga are no match to mighty Real Madrid. On the other hand, Borussia will have to try to find some unexpected points somewhere, or they will finish below Tottenham on the table.

Cristiano Ronaldo suspension was expensive for Real Madrid - Barcelona already has a big lead, and it will be tough to catch them until the end of the season. However, last weekend they defeated Alaves by 2:1 on the road and that might be the sign of better times for the Royal Club.

Real Madrid is certainly a favorite in the upcoming game, but a draw won't be a surprise either. We also can expect many goals in the match between two very efficient teams.
