Borussia Dortmund – Bayer Leverkusen, Bundesliga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR DORTMUND - LEVERKUSEN
Borussia Dortmund were shocked by their poor play against Union Berlin last round, where they lost 1-3 away. The newcomers totally outplayed them, and Borussia’s defense seemed ridiculous at times. At Signal Iduna Park they are much better, but with these defense errors they are unlikely to retain a clean sheet against Bayer with this terrific attack. Sancho recorded his first goal for England this week and is expected to start against Dortmund as the youngster is clearly in shape.
Bayer Leverkusen thus managed to break through Hoffenheim’s defense. Something unusual and unexpected in a game like this. Bayer, like Dortmund, made many defensive mistakes and were easily punished, but specifically against Hoffenheim the match was held in a different direction, with the guests trying not to lose. However, they are no longer with Nagelsmann, with who has been getting goal serenades.
Expert view : We think there is no doubt in these two offensive teams that we can expect goals. After the failure with Union Berlin Borussia Dortmund smashed Energie Cottbus 5-0, but almost none of the first team played. It is logical for both teams to rely on their weapons to attack and try to outplay the opponent, which is why we see more dynamics and quick attacks. Our prediction for the game is BTTS & Over 2.5 Goals 1.61.
Borussia Dortmund have scored at least 2 goals in 17 of their last 18 games
Bayer have scored 10 goals in their last 4 games
