Newcastle vs Borussia Dortmund odds
*Odds correct as of 09:30 on October 24
Newcastle have been enjoying their return to the Champions League this season, top of their group, still unbeaten after two matches. The Magpies opened with a goalless draw against AC Milan at the San Siro but then thumped PSG at St James’ Park last time out, winning 4-1 for a European dream. It was Newcastle’s biggest ever Champions League victory, despite having the fewest touches in the opposition box and the lowest xG among all sides in the first two matchdays.
Borussia Dortmund, meanwhile, still bottom of the group still chasing their first win. In their opening game, Dortmund were beaten 2-0 by PSG, losing to two second-half goals from Kylian Mbappe and Achraf Hakimi. There was a slight improvement in the second game, in that Dortmund got a point, but it was still disappointment as they were held to a goalless draw at home against AC Milan.

Newcastle vs Borussia Dortmund match tip
Although Borussia Dortmund have got one point in the Champions League this season they are still without a goal. Failing to find the net against AC Milan and PSG, Dortmund also drew a blank in a 2-0 defeat to Chelsea in the second leg of their last 16 tie last season. They have never failed to score in four consecutive Champions League matches, and have taken 32 shots this season.
Newcastle vs Borussia Dortmund Bet-Builder tip
Borussia Dortmund’s recent history against English teams doesn’t make for good reading. Including their 2-0 defeat to Chelsea last year, Dortmund have lost each of their last six away games against English sides across all competitions, conceding at least twice every time. Alexander Isak will be among those looking to cause a threat having scored seven goals in 11 games this season.
