Borussia Dortmund vs Newcastle Prediction | The Analyst

Newcastle make a mouth-watering journey to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League later today.

Dortmund’s win at St James’ Park last month has blown what has been billed as the dreaded ‘Group of Death’ wide open.

The two teams are now level on points in Group F, albeit the German giants lead on the head-to-head record.

With that in mind, Newcastle need to win if they are to have their destiny in their own hands. They prepared for the trip to Germany with a battling win over Arsenal, while Dortmund were thrashed by a Harry Kane-inspired Bayern Munich.

Still, Dortmund managed the game perfectly in their away fixture and remain one of Europe’s form sides.

Here’s everything you need to know.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Borussia Dortmund vs Newcastle is scheduled for a 5.45pm GMT kick-off later today on Tuesday 7 November, 2023.

Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund will host.

Emre Can continues to struggle with the hip problem to have forced him off in the reverse fixture, while Mateu Morey and Julien Duranville have knee injuries.

Karim Adeyemi and Felix Nmecha could return to the starting lineup following the weekend loss to Bayern.

For Newcastle, the absence list is longer. Dan Burn was forced off against Arsenal with a back injury and will now miss months alongside fellow left-back Matt Targett, while Jacob Murphy injured his shoulder again. Elliot Anderson and Harvey Barnes are both out and neither of Alexander Isak or Sven Botman are expected to return.

Tino Livramento could start at right-back, with Kieran Trippier moving over to the left.
