The Bundesliga is gearing towards the end of this edition, but for Borussia Dortmund the big matches are still coming. This Saturday they are set to face Bayer Leverkusen, the once upon a time second placed team in the table. The bookmakers give the visitors the edge to win, even though Leverkusen could spring up some surprises.
Leverkusen are on the 4th place in Bundesliga, look on the brink of losing the one point edge they have over Wolfsburg should they record anything but a win tomorrow. The hosts were poised to be the ones to secure a direct Champions League qualification, but their horrible form midway through the campaign saw them on the 4th spot and the following demise of Sami Hyypia. Now with Sascha Lewandowski in charge, Bayer Leverkusen started winning again. They will have to work around missing Giulio Donati, while Dortmund will be without Kehl and Weidenfeller with a groin injury.
Borussia Dortmund have secured the Champions League place, and are looking forward to a DFB Pokal final against Bayern Munich later in May. After the splendid form they displayed in Champions League against Real Madrid and the desire to avenge the December defeat at Westfallen Stadion, Dortmund looks likely to score more than one goal.
Considering Dortmund have five wins in a row, it’s no wonder they are priced up at 2.21 to win this match. Leverkusen in the same market is at 3.00, and a draw between the two sides is at 3.50. Over 2.5 goals is at 1.51 and the probability of a goal in the first half is at 2.08. We are going to bet 8 units on away team to score in both halves at 2.70 with odds fro Betsson.
