Why Borussia Dortmund Will Win

Borussia is a heavy underdog in this one, and they know it. Despite that, they still have a great chance to win this match but will need to play a perfect game.

Dortmund has not scored much, yet forward Niclas Füllkrug leads the team with three goals and two assists in this tournament. Meanwhile, midfielder Marcel Sabitzer has tallied one goal and five assists. Midfielder Marco Reus has added two goals and one assist. Likewise, midfielder Julian Brandt has delivered two goals and two assists.

But the defense has been stellar, and they even scored a few times. Defender Mats Hummels has leveled one goal and one assist, while defender Nico Schlotterbeck has two helpers. Both will attempt to keep the momentum going by attacking the open spaces on offense. Then, they will need goalie Gregor Kobel to step it up. Dortmund will win this game if they can continue locking down on defense and turn it into turnovers to give themselves a chance.

Why Real Madrid Will Win

Real Madrid is the favorite because they know how to score goals in droves. Amazingly, they have three players with five goals and one with four in this tournament.

Forward Rodrigo leads this squad with five goals and two assists. Meanwhile, midfielder Vinicius Junior has added five goals and five assists. Midfielder Joseulu has tallied five goals. Also, midfielder Bellingham has tallied four goals and four assists.

The defense has been a little shaky at times. Yet, defender Rudiger has done okay and even has an assist. But currently, Real Madrid has a choice of goalkeepers. Thibaut Courtois and Andriy Lunin are the choices, as both are getting a chance, with Courtois likely starting this final.

Real Madrid will win this match if they can continue attacking the defense with little resistance. They also need to avoid making mistakes and turning the ball over.

Final Borussia Dortmund-Real Madrid Prediction & Pick

Dortmund has a good chance of pulling the upset because they have the defenders who can pull it off. Yet, it seems like the challenge might be too overwhelming. There is a reason why Real Madrid has been a powerhouse for so long. Ultimately, they have been here before and are looking for their 15th title.
