Borussia Dortmund-Werder, DFB-Pokal Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR DORTMUND - WERDER
Match for the Cup, where Dortmund is coming under some pressure after not only not winning their last game against Eintracht, but they could not play well, and could even lose. Favre himself said his team literally “did not touch the ball” in this match, but this point made the difference with Bayern 7 points, because the Bavarians lost to Leverkusen. Now Dortmund is unlikely to play with their best players, because they have important matches in the league and the Champions League.
Werder failed against one of the weakest teams, Nurnberg, and made 1-1 with them, but that was somehow expected, as traditionally the Bremen musicians are struggling with this rival, as earlier in the season something similar happened. Still, the tendency to score and allow a goal remained in another match. Werder are in good shape and have not lost in all of their last five matches.
In 29 consecutive games Werder scored a goal, and 25 of them conceded a goal, but this is not new to this team, who for most of the last years could have offered us many statistics like this. Meanwhile, Dortmund’s last five home games were BTTS. In 10 consecutive games between Dortmund and Werder there were goals in both nets. Dortmund has missing defenders + matches in the next few days in more important tournaments, so prediction – BTTS at 1.70
