Can Borussia Dortmund shake off opening match loss in UEFA Champions League Group F?
Why does Borussia Dortmund always seem to underperform in the UEFA Champions League?
Last year’s exit in the Round of 16, after so much hype, was just the latest failure for a team that seems to find new ways to disappoint all the time.
Take last week, for example: Dortmund gave up a late goal in Italy to lose 2-1 to Lazio in UEFA Champions League Group F action, and now have a game Wednesday against a Zenit St. Petersburg team in the same spot, after its late loss to Club Brugge.
The loser (if there is one) of this match will be in a very deep hole early in the group. Look for Erling Braut Håland to ensure that does not happen for Dortmund.
