INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
After ending up on the third position in the group behind Tottenham Hotspur and Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League, they were destined to face Atalanta in the knockout stage of UEFA Europa League. Despite being a home match, Dortmund looks not very confident because they have only won two matches of their last 11 home matches. However our bet is on the away team for this fixture because they haven’t lost an away match since November and they have won the six of their last eight away games in all competitions.
