Borussia D – Bayer L, Bundesliga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR DORTMUND - BAYER LEVERKUSEN
There was big news for Dortmund that Reus is probably back for this game, but this won’t happen. Still, Alcacer has played against Nurnberg, which means that they can rely at least on one of their two best players. Dortmund is in a terrible form and Bayer Leverkusen is not the ideal rival to break it, but Borussia returns to Signal Iduna Park, where they have no loss this season in an official match.
Bayer are in shape, but had a match against Krasnodar for Europa League on Thursday and were a little tired, because the game was important and they spent much energy there, even though they got kicked out. Dortmund was resting for a week. Due to the good shape and the 4 consecutive wins for Bayer in the Bundesliga, they climbed in the standings. As guests are no less dangerous compared to their home games with 5 victories in the visits.
The matches between Dortmund and Leverkusen have always been with high number of goals. We expect this to happen again, especially given Borussia’s main striker is back. Leverkusen often attack and are able to score, but as guests only have 2 clean sheets in the Bundesliga. Dortmund have only 1 loss in the season and do not have a match in which they have not scored a goal at home. Borussia should win, cause Bayern won yesterday, too. We expect a win for them, but our prediction is Dortmund – Over 1.5 goals at 1.48.
- Dortmund has scored 13 goals in the last 3 home games against Bayer
- Dortmund have scored at least 2 goals in each of their last 8 home games
