Both teams have had a right good go at scoring goals so far in this campaign as well – Dortmund broke the group stage record with 21, while Monaco scored six against Manchester City over two legs.
I wonder how short the odds for "Over 2.5 goals" in the Dortmund – Monaco match will be!

We have a feeling this one could be a clean sheet free zone.
Monaco vs BVB the definitive tie for football fans, free flowing, mad attacking football by both sides, two fantastic managers clashing.
