Champions League: Napoli-Dortmund Preview
The UEFA Champions League Group Stage is finally approaching us. Tuesday brings us some wonderful games but the opening game of the Group of Death will be played on Wednesday between Napoli and Borussia Dortmund.
Napoli signed Jose Callejon and Gonzalo Higuain from Real Madrid to bolster their attack after selling Edinson Cavani to PSG. Both players have scored for their new team domestically and will look to be even stronger in Europe. Dortmund will have trouble containing these guys.
At the other end, Dortmund has had a perfect to start to their Bundesliga campaign and will look to better themselves from last year’s UCL performance — they finished as finalists. With players like Marco Reus, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Robert Lewandowski and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, this team is more than ready to enter Naples to play out a solid victory.
Basically, both sides can win this game but it will not be easy by any means. Here is more of a breakdown.
Dortmund play throughout the entire game in a solid 4-2-3-1 with the wingers, midfielders and defenders working extremely hard to compliment one another. Those nine players work very hard to push the ball up as quickly and efficiently as possible to help themselves as well as the striker as much as they can. This is one of those teams who have players that completely gel with each other and rarely ever make mistakes.
The home team is very strong on their own ground and has the undying support of their fans. They will attack, defend and utilize all of their weapons throughout the 90 plus. But if Dortmund scores one or even two before they do, they will be demoralized. This is something they have to prevent from happening.
Ladies and gentlemen, this will definitely be one of the matches of this European season.
