Over 2.5 goals

There were three goals scored in last week's first leg, and while the Atletico of old may have looked to grind out a goalless draw in the return fixture, questions have to be raised over their present day side and their ability to hold firm.

The fact they have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 10 games across all competitions sums up just where this Atleti team is at in its current carnation. Gone are the days of Diego Godin marshalling his troops to another famous win to nil. For Tuesday's spectacle, perhaps that's for the best.

Eight of those aforementioned 10 games have actually seen over 2.5 goals, and Dortmund's previous 10 haven't exactly been dull either, with half seeing at least three goals scored.

Expect another lively encounter on Tuesday, with Dortmund going all out to keep themselves in the competition.

Marcel Sabitzer 2+ shots

Marcel Sabitzer was the hero on Saturday as his first-half brace set Dortmund on their way to a 2-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach. Those were his first goals of the calendar year, but he does have five for the season now and he hasn't been shy to shoot.

The Austrian averages 1.9 shots per game in the Bundesliga, and while the number drops to 0.5 in this season's Champions League, he will be expected to fire a few off against Atleti as the German side go in search of an equaliser in this tie.

Sabitzer registered one shot attempt in the first leg as Dortmund managed 12 as a team, but their shot count should be up on Tuesday.

The ex-Manchester United loanee is capable of striking them from distance and as his successful penalty kick against Gladbach showed, he's pretty handy from 12 yards, too.

Atletico over 29.5 booking points

Diego Simeone's side are known for their energetic displays that involve them harrying the opposition at all times - whether that's with the ball in play or not.

Expect similar tactics on Tuesday as the Argentine and his charges seek to engineer a route into the semi-finals.

Atleti were awarded 30 booking points in Madrid after yellow cards were dished out to Lino, Marcos Llorente and Jose Maria Gimenez, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see them at least match that total in Germany.

Dortmund are 6/5 to win on the night in 90 minutes, giving them an implied win probability of 45%. Meanwhile, a draw that would see Atleti progress is 11/4, while an away win is priced at 2/1. BTTS can be backed at 8/15, and over 2.5 goals is 4/6.

Betfred are running their famed Double Delight & Hat-trick Heaven offer on this match, meaning that if a player scores first and then nets again, you will be paid at double the odds. If he grabs a hat-trick, you will be paid at treble the odds!
