Dortmund continue their unconvincing Bundesliga season against a Hannover 96 side that are above them in the table. There are three points between the two teams, and the real question is how well does this match bode for a team that lost against Hamburger SV? The answer is also simple enough: if Dortmund manage to display at least half of their Champions League form they will make true to the 1.25 odds offered by Bet365 for their outright win.
Borussia Dortmund is currently on the 14th place on the table, with only one point out of their last five matches and new injury worries. During the match against Galatasaray Sven Bender picked up an elbow injury the extent of which is still unknown. Last night there were a complete different Dortmund team, one that carried out attacks, created chances and dispelled attacks; a team which everybody wants back in the Bundesliga, challenging Bayern for the title. Marco Reus scored one of the four goals, helped Dortmund with the accuracy rate in front of the goal and the German press keeps wondering if Aubameyang will be the new Lewandowski for Dortmund.
All this while the fans are wondering when Kagawa, their playmaker will really step up into the role. Nobody is saying Hannover are faring any better as they fail to score since the game against Köln, but end up with wonderful goals in training. Joselu, Andreasen and Sobiech are your main picks for the goalscorer market if you decide to trust them. Miiko Albornoz is still on the list of unavailable players. Die Roten started the Bundesliga well, but since losing to Sutttgart, their form has taken a dip for the worst.
Hannover got 12.00 for an outright win, while Borussia Dortmund for both halves have 1.66 odds. A goal line of 3,5 goals has 1.95 odds, Dortmund with a -2.0 handicap has 1.85 odds, Hannover with a +2.0 2.05 odds and both teams to score in the second half has 3.25 odds. Immobile to score has 1.80 odds, Marco Reus and Adrian Ramos both have 1.83 to score anytime while Maruoka with Joselu both have 4.75 to put a goal past Weidenfeller. We are going to take a chance on Dortmund and hope they win both halves at 2.37 with Bet365.
