Borussia Dortmund vs. Werder Bremen

2011/12 champions are back to their best and should prove too strong for Werder Bremen

The saying ‘there’s light at the end of the tunnel’ could not be more applicable to Borussia Dortmund. Having suffered a season of disappointment and misery, things are starting to look up for the eight-time Bundesliga champions. Months of much needed consistency has seen them rise to seventh in the table. The home side will be well backed at 1/4 to keep up their good work when a solid yet unspectacular Werder Bremen side visit the Signal Iduna Park on Saturday.

1) Dortmund have won just over 60% of their last ten games in all competitions, and have a stunning head to head record against Bremen, winning seven of their last eight meetings. A home win looks inevitable at 1/4.

2) Dortmund average over 2.5 goals in their games more than half the time, whilst Werder Bremen’s matches are even more of a goal fest, with 58% of them averaging over 2.5 goals. Back the trend to continue at 30/100.

3) Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is the fifth highest goalscorer in the Bundesliga this season, with 15 strikes. He looks the most likely to open the scoring in the game at odds of 3/1.

4) Werder Bremen’s attacking style of football has led to both teams scoring in 61% of their fixtures this season. Both teams scoring in this game looks almost a certainty at 3/4.

5) Both Borussia Dortmund and Werder Bremen have produced a 4-2 scoreline this year. With both sides considerably stronger in attack than defence, a 4-2 home win looks a massive price at 25/1.

6) Borussia Dortmund have led at half time in just 27.3% of their matches this season, earning them their ‘slow starters’ reputation. Back them to be drawing at half time, and winning at full time, available at 13/4.

7) Franco Di Santo has 13 goals for Werder Bremen this season, with seven coming away from home. At 5/2 he is superb value to score at any-time during the match
