Borussia Dortmund -333

Borussia Dortmund have made a fine start to their Bundesiga campaign (W3, D1, L1) despite a shock defeat at Union Berlin. Their league games have seen goals aplenty with no less than four goals on each occasion, and a league-high average of 4.4 total goals per game. If taking just their home matches into account, that average is pushed up to an incredible 5.0 goals per game.

They have, however, kept just one clean sheet so far this league campaign, and have started some games slowly, conceding the opener in 60% of their matches so far. Conversely they are strong finishers with their second-half goal difference of +8 the division’s second best.

Dortmund’s attack features some of the league’s most talented players and they benefit greatly from their high possession numbers. Dortmund have scored an average of 3 goals per game in the Bundesliga this season. Dortmund’s attack needs to be exceptional, as their defensive solidity isn’t up to par with their title rivals. Dortmund have the joint-most goals conceded in the top half of the table. 

Dortmund is ranked on the 3rd place in the standings with 64 points, 72 goals scored and 40 goals received in the last 34 leagueevents.

SV Werder Bremen +550

Werder Bremen have not drawn a game so far this season (W2, L3) and have not done so for seven Bundesliga matches since a 2-2 draw with their opponents in this game. Defeat in their last Bundesliga fixture was the first time that Bremen have failed to score this season, while it also broke a sequence of five Bundesliga games (four this season) where both teams scored.

It’s therefore no surprise that Bremen’s games have also been goal-laden with an average of 4.0 per game, the joint-second highest in the Bundesliga. However they have conceded an average of 2.4 goals per game this season, the third-worst in the league.

Werder Bremen haven’t failed to entertain their fans either this season. They have had a total of 20 goals involved in their 5 league fixtures this season. Only Dortmund have seen more goals involved in their opening 5 games. 

Werder Bremen’s defence is subject to even more questioning. They have conceded 12 goals from their opening 5 games, and they’ve kept 0 clean sheets. This leaves them with the Bundesliga’s worst defensive record outside of the bottom two. 

This fixture has a history of delivering high-scoring thrillers. Ultimately, we feel that this game is sure to deliver goals. These two played each other 3 times in all competitions last season. There were over 2.5 goals scored in all 3 fixtures.

Werder Bremen are ranked on the 8th place in the standings with 45 points, 61 goals scored and 64 goals received this season in Bundesliga.
