Borussia Dortmund can take another step towards Europa League glory when they line up against Red Bull Salzburg in the last 16 of the competition.

Latest odds

With that in mind, it is little surprise that SportPesa make the Germans their 1/2 (1.50) favourites to win on home soil.

Salzburg are unbeaten in this competition this season and they can be backed at 19/4 (5.75) to claim a famous win here, while SportPesa offer 33/10 (4.30) that the first leg ends level.

Team news

Michy Batshuayi is set to start for Dortmund and is a tempting 13/5 (3.60) chance to net first, whilst Shinji Kagawa and Raphael Guerreiro will both miss out through injury.

Salzburg's Munas Dabbur scoring four goals in his last four appearances and is available at 7/1 (8.0) with SportPesa to break the deadlock. Duje Caleta-Car and Fredrik Gulbransen may return to the starting eleven after suspension.

Both teams to score?

Salzburg have scored in seven of their last eight away matches in this competition and SportPesa offer 10/13 (1.77) that there are goals at both ends in this game.

That particular selection that would have landed in four of Dortmund's last five fixtures.

A tight tussle?

There have been fewer than three goals scored in five of the last six matches that Dortmund have played and, so, SportPesa's 23/20 (2.15) quote for no more than two goals to be scored could represent value for punters.

Preview and predictions

Better value, though, could lie in backing classy Dortmund to establish what may prove to be a decisive first leg lead and make it 13 games in a row without defeat.

SportPesa's price of 5/4 (2.25) for Borussia Dortmund to win this one by at least two clear goals could provide punters with a path to profit.
