Paderborn v Borussia Dortmund
Sunday, 5pm, Live on BT Sport 1
I see a Dortmund win here. Yes, they are a short price but you can put them in your weekend acca with a lot of confidence. Paderborn, in fairness, came up nearly too quickly to the Bundesliga after back-to-back promotions.
They have been plucky, earning three draws since coming back from the break. But they really needed wins to try and close the gap and give themselves a chance of survival. But this will be the end of it after this weekend with Dortmund to go on and score a good few here.
We’ve also seen a few Dortmund backlashes this season. After they lost to PSG in the Champions League, they went on to beat Schalke 4-0. They also lost to Bayer Leverkusen earlier in the season and bounced back winning 4-0 in their next game against Frankfurt.
They tend to bounce back well so have a look at that in the correct score markets at a bit of a price, but it’s a Dortmund win here for me for sure.
In the goalscorer markets there could be some value as Erling Haaland could miss the game with injury. With Pablo Alcacer gone back to Villareal, it tends to be Mario Gotze who plays the main striker role when called upon.
He’s got two goals in six starts in that position but Dortmund do change positions around. I definitely think Gotze is a big price in the First (5/1) / Anytime Goalscorer (13/8 )markets. If he doesn’t start I’d go with Thorgan Hazard, who’ll be a similar price.
- Dortmund to Win & Over 2.5 Goals @ 4/6
- First Goalscorer: Mario Gotze @ 5/1
- Anytime Goalscorer: Mario Gotze @ 13/8
