After losing in Madrid and bidding this year’s Champions League goodbye, Borussia Dortmund return to Bundesliga action in the match against Wolfsburg. 888sport shows Dortmund as the obvious winners of this match and offer them 1.48 odds to win outright, while the same market for Wolfsburg is at 6.50.
Dortmund are on the second place in Bundesliga, but for some reason they are struggling to keep the place, as they keep changing places with Schalke 04 who are on the third place. The hosts also have an extensive and ever growing list of injuries, but since Mats Hummels is back their defensive line has looked impressive. Against Madrid Marco Reus often found himself alone, with nobody to exchange passes, and in the absence of Robert Lewandowski they lacked finishing power.
Wolfsburg is the 5th team in Germany at the moment and even if points wise they slack behind Die Borussen, they are not a team against which a match could be said as won from the start. They come from two consecutive wins, but in Dortmund they will have to work around missing Klose and Diego Benaglio, with a foot injury.
Considering the important games Dortmund have this week, including “Der Klassiker” next Saturday, it might look like they will be tired against Wolfsburg; Klopp doesn’t have a lot of people for rotation. 888sport has both teams to score at 1.48, and over 2.5 goals at 1.42. We are going to bet 4 units on a draw at halftime and Dortmund to win at 4.50 with the same bookie.
