Saturday evening football from the German Bundesliga and what a game we have in store here as Borussia Dortmund and Werder Bremen go toe-to-toe. Here are our top Borussia Dortmund v Werder Bremen betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
These rivals have played out some memorable encounters in recent times and we’re hoping for another classic here. Follow the match live on BT Sport from 5.30pm to be part of the action.
Borussia Dortmund hit the ground running this season when winning three of their first four games to sit second in the table. A points tally of nine left them one behind earlier leaders RB Leipzig who won three and drew one.
Werder Bremen didn’t have things as good as their opponents in the early part of the campaign. The visitors lost each of their first two matches and that knocked their chances almost before they had begun. Bremen must be given credit for pulling up their socks and taking six points from their next two games. Was it nothing more than a false start? We’ll find out in due course.
A Home Win Game?
The form of both sides going into this match tells us the smart money goes on the home win, but we already know anything can happen and often does happen in the top tier of German football. It’s such a competitive league and backing the shortest-priced teams doesn’t necessarily guarantee a profit over the course of a season.
William Hill have Dortmund priced at 32/100 and that’s slightly better than most other firms. The draw comes in at 9/2 with most major bookies, including Bet365, and the away win has been marked up as a 9/1 poke by Bet365, a point better than the crowd.
