Borussia Dortmund welcomes Atletico Madrid to Signal Iduna Park for the second leg of their Champions League quarterfinal, and we have our top Dortmund vs. Atletico prediction based on the best Champions League odds.

After securing a home victory last week, Atletico Madrid holds a narrow 2-1 advantage going into Tuesday's Champions League second leg. Sébastien Haller's late goal for Dortmund changed the complexion, increasing the tension tenfold. 

Dortmund lost its last Bundesliga home game to Stuttgart (1-0) and have suffered two defeats in their last three matches in all competitions. They have managed just four wins in their last ten home games, with two victories out of four in the Champions League. 

While Signal Iduna Park hasn't been the fortress it once was for Dortmund, Atletico Madrid has also struggled away from home. They've won just two of their last six La Liga away matches and have a record of one win, one loss, and two draws in their last four away Champions League games. Additionally, they've failed to score in four of their last six away matches.

Accompanying our Barcelona vs. PSG prediction, Bayern Munich vs. Arsenal prediction, and Manchester City vs. Real Madrid prediction, here is our best Dortmund vs. Atletico prediction and soccer picks (odds via our best soccer betting sites; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

Dortmund vs. Atletico prediction

Antoine Griezmann anytime goal or assist ⭐⭐⭐

Antoine Griezman is a perennial goal threat, which he has repeatedly proven on the world's biggest and most high-pressure stages. The 33-year-old veteran has six Champions League goals and, according to our Champions League odds, is the fourth-favorite to win the Golden Boot.

The Frenchman assisted on Samuel Lino's first-half goal in the opening leg, his first helper of the competition. Griezmann has a goal or assist in the last two Champions League matches and three of the previous four. He has four goals and an assist in the last six Champions League matches and scored a brace against Girona in La Liga on Saturday.

He also takes the team's penalties, increasing Griezmann's chances of getting on the scoresheet. 

If Atletico scores, there's a high likelihood that Griezmann will be involved.

Dortmund Over 5.5 corners ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The longer Borussia Dortmund remains behind on aggregate, the more desperate they'll become. The German side should set the tone from kickoff, hoping to make the renowned extra-man effect from the raucous support at Signal Iduna Park count. Dortmund had eight corners in the first leg and average 5.67 per match in the Champions League. 

Light rain is expected for the encounter, making it slightly more challenging for defenders to mop up cleanly and without incident. While Dortmund secured at least six corners in only two of their previous four home Champions League matches, the conditions and added air of desperation should push them over the 5.5-corner threshold.

In addition, Atletico often defends deep and has a propensity to concede corners in bunches, especially in hostile environments. They allowed 10 at Feyenoord and 11 at Lazio in the group stage. 

Best odds: -130 via FanDuel

Dortmund vs. Atletico odds analysis

Of our best sports betting sites, FanDuel offers the best value and odds for the corners market, providing -130 for Borussia Dortmund to obtain at least six corners. DraftKings offers +115 for Over 6.5 corners. While the plus-money value is appealing, expecting Dortmund to get seven corners is far less likely. The implied probability of Over 5.5 at -130 is 56.52%, while Over 6.5 at DraftKings comes with an implied probability of 46.51%. A winning $10 bet on Over 5.5 corners pays out $17.69. 

While bet365 and FanDuel provide odds for the goal or assist market, FanDuel offers the better value, albeit marginally. The +115 for Griezmann to score or assist implies a 46.51% probability, and a winning $10 wager pays out $21.50. bet365 offers +100 odds, which would pay out $20.
