Sports Innovation previews the Champions League match between Borussia Dortmund and Ajax and offers team stats, betting tips and the latest odds.

Borussia Dortmund will seek revenge from their reverse fixture against Ajax back in the last month when they lost by 4-0 to the Dutch side in the Champions League. Tonight, BVB will have a home advantage over their opponents, but we should expect strong resistance from the Eredivisie club, who have been in excellent form this season.

Just 1 defeat in the last 6 matches in the European tournament looks fine on paper. However, Borussia Dortmund have also just won twice and they need to up their game to secure further participation in the tournament. Losing twice in their last 6 games in the Champions League proves Ajax are not invulnerable. On the other hand, winning 4 of these is still a decent outcome for more or less anyone in this tournament.
