Borussia Dortmund played host to Copenhagen at Westfalenstadion on Tuesday night in their UEFA Champions League group stages opener. 

The Bundesliga giant secured a spot for the 2022-23 European most prestigious group stage courtesy of a second-place finish in the German league.

The Danish Super Lig outfit overcame Trabzonspor in the playoff round with a 2-1 at-home win in the first leg before holding on for a goalless draw in the second.

Copenhagen is making its return to the Champions League group stage after last appearing in the tournament back in the 2016-17 season.

IMPORTANT STATS:

BORUSSIA DORTMUND

Dortmund will be meeting Copenhagen for the third time in European competitions with the Bundesliga giants winning 2-0 on aggregate with a clean sheet record in the UEFA Europa League qualifiers in the 2001-02 campaign.

Black and Yellow are on a run of back-to-back wins and have won all but one of their last six competitive outings.

COPENHAGEN

Copenhagen just ended a two-game winless run in their last outing after struggling to impress on the road of late and could lose here.

Both of these teams are known for playing high-scoring games and while we expect the home team to win the game, we can see both teams scoring a goal in this match.

FCNAIJA PREDICTION:

Dortmund to win and over 2.5
