Fascinating Champions League action continues in Group F on Wednesday, as AC Milan will be the visitors to Signal Iduna Park. The Italian giants will be looking for their first win in the competition this term, as they were held in their opening match at the San Siro by Newcastle United. But, they remain a side of huge interest in the tournament after reaching the final four last term.
Milan have recovered following an uneventful 0-0 draw against the Magpies on matchday one, as they have won each of their last three domestic fixtures in Serie A. Over that period, they have scored six goals, and they have allowed just one.
Borussia Dortmund sit bottom of the group standings at this stage, as they were handed a defeat on matchday one in Paris. The German side were disappointing against PSG, as they failed to create much in the final third of the field. However, their home record could be a telling factor when it comes to the most likely winner in this fixture on Wednesday.
Dortmund have bounced back since that defeat by winning their last two in the Bundesliga. Their most recent success was a very impressive display on the road on Friday, as they landed a 3-1 victory against Hoffenheim. More of the same will be expected by the German giants in front of their home fans this week.
Borussia Dortmund vs AC Milan Prediction
This will be the first Champions League fixture between the sides since 2002-03. Dortmund’s home record has been excellent in the competition in recent seasons, and for that reason, it could be worth siding with a home win on Wednesday evening.
