Real reunion with the unloved ex
Ciro Immobile moved to Borussia Dortmund in 2014/2015 for almost 20 million euros. There, the newly crowned top scorer in Serie A, at that time still in the service of Torino FC, should follow in the big footsteps of the emigrated Robert Lewandowski.
What followed, however, was a year to forget. The attacker did not feel integrated, rumoured to have refused to learn German and, in terms of sport, fell far short of expectations. After three goals in 24 Bundesliga games, the BVB chapter ended prematurely and Immobile moved to Seville in the Spanish La Liga.
Meanwhile, the reigning titleholder of the “Golden Shoe” has returned to Serie A. Before the Champions League opener between Lazio Rome and Dortmund, where the odds of the best bookmakers turn out in favour of the German runner-up, the focus is of course on real estate.
The fact that Lucien Favre’s team is considered a favourite is primarily due to the previous impressions in everyday life in the league. While the black and yellow were able to make three of the four Bundesliga games victorious and even won the complicated guest appearance at TSG Hoffenheim at the weekend, the Biancocelesti from the Italian capital only won after four match days.
In addition, before the kick-off between Lazio Rome and Dortmund, when predicting the outcome of the game, it must be taken into account that the home side will be playing their first premier class match in over ten years. At the highest European level, the advantages of experience are therefore clearly with the Westphalians.
Lazio – Statistics & current form
If you were to ask those in charge of Lazio these days whether their team is ready for the Champions League comeback, two kinds of answers would probably come back. On the one hand, the anticipation for the first group phase match since 2007 in the most important European club competition is of course huge. On the other hand, the current constitution brings one or two worry lines to the forehead of decision-makers.
After four match days in Serie A, “Le Aquile” has to make do with a disappointing 14th place. With the exception of the 2-0 success at Cagliari Calcio at the end of September, the capital city club has not yet won a single league game. Among other things, it set a sensitive 1: 4 home defeat against Atalanta Bergamo and an embarrassing 0: 3 swat last weekend against Sampdoria.
Bad start to the season for the Biancocelesti
So if we look at the isolated form of the light blue and whites, who have already conceded eight goals, it is only logical to recommend a tip on the Bundesliga club before the duel between Lazio Rome and Dortmund. To make matters worse, from the point of view of coach Simone Inzaghi’s team, the recent experiences at international level were not necessarily characterized by success.
In the last Europa League season, for example, the Biancocelesti failed in the group stage. Also in the previous year, the second round was the final destination early on. Eight of the last ten matches in UEFA competitions have been lost. Whether these weak statistics can be polished up on Tuesday evening seems more than questionable, not least due to the lack of home game atmosphere. Spectators will not be allowed in the Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday.
Ciro Immobile as a great beacon of hope
The hosts have to do without Luiz Felipe, Manuel Lazzari, Senad Lulic and probably Andres Pereira as well. Ciro Immobile is returning to the starting XI after serving a red card suspension in the league at the weekend. Of course, all hopes rest on the international striker, who is only playing his eleventh Champions League game, although he has already been registered with four teams for the premier class.
The probable lineup of Lazio:
↪️ Strakosha – Patric, Acerbi, Hoedt – S. Milinkovic-Savic – Parolo, Fares – Lucas Leiva, Luis Alberto – Immobile, Correa

Dortmund – Statistics & current form
Are you interested in good entertainment? Then read through all of the comments on Borussia Dortmund’s social media channels that were made immediately after the announcement of the line-up for the Hoffenheim match, but before kick-off. Coach Lucien Favre was denied any specialist knowledge. Sometimes there was even talk of the Swiss “deliberately providing a B-Eleven to get out of his contract faster”.
Ultimately, the very polarizing opinions of BVB supporters turned out to be unfounded, because although the not controversial Borussia coach with Bürki, Haaland, Reus, Guerreiro or Bellingham put five potential top performers on the bench right from the start and started without nominal leadership, the black and yellow won the difficult guest appearance in Sinsheim with 1-0.
BVB has to improvise on the defensive
With regard to the start in the premier class, Favre’s move could even be described as brilliant, because the fact is that players like Haaland, Reus or Bürki will now go into the game on Tuesday evening more rested due to the additional break.
All that remains is the defence problem, as Akanji, Can, Schmelzer, Schulz and Zagadou four defenders are injured or suspended. Even for Thorgan Hazard, a weekday deployment is still too early. It is quite possible that Thomas Delaney will slip into the chain of three and join Mats Hummels and Piszczek, who is also still ailing.
Statistically speaking, there is a lot to be said for the German runner-up, who only lost three of the last twelve group games in the UEFA Champions League. In the same period, however, seven games were won. In the last three cases, trips to Italy were not crowned with success. The last victory in the premier class in Bella Italia goes back to 2003. Nevertheless, the odds between Lazio Rome and Dortmund imply advantages for the Bundesliga club.
The probable lineup of Dortmund:
↪️ Bürki – Piszczek, Hummels, Delaney – Meunier, Bellingham, Witsel, Guerreiro – Reus – Sancho, Haaland

⚽️ 10/17 2020 Hoffenheim 0 – 1 Borussia Dortmund

Lazio vs Dortmund – Direct comparison / H2H balance
The most recent direct duel to date took place in the summer of 2018 as part of a friendly match. The Dortmund team narrowly prevailed 1-0 in preparation. Marco Reus scored the only goal. At the competitive level, the two teams only met in the 1994/1995 UEFA Cup season. The home team won the first and second leg of the quarter-finals, but BVB reached the next round with a total of 2: 1.

Lazio Roma vs Dortmund Free Betting Tips Provided by CoreBet Tipsters
On paper, Group F with Zenit St. Petersburg, Club Bruges, Lazio Rome and Dortmund – this prediction must be allowed – is certainly among the nominally weakest in this year’s Champions League group stage. From the point of view of the two supposed favourites from Italy and Germany, it is all the more important to start with a win on the first matchday.
Key facts – Lazio vs Dortmund tips
🥅 Lazio is playing the first Champions League game since 2007
🥅 The Italians have lost eight of the last ten international matches
🥅 BVB has to improvise in defence
In our opinion, the advantages lie in the black and yellow, who have presented themselves in significantly better shape so far this season, have more experience at the highest international level and are also qualitatively better.
Because Favre was able to spare some top performers over long stretches on Saturday and the home advantage of the Biancocelesti is clearly reduced due to the non-admitted fans, we decide between Lazio Rome and Dortmund for the tip on attractive odds on the away win.
