After a few months of zero activity and very little in the way of news, the football world is coming back to life in a big way. The remainder of June and a large chunk of July is going to be crammed with soccer games from all over the world, with live games set to be shown on TV every single day. If you have been craving the return of football, you are in for an absolute treat, with the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, and MLS all set to resume business. This is on top of the Bundesliga, who were the first to return from the pandemic lockdown. Let’s get right into action so you can know how these teams arrive to this affair and that way you can place your bets against their Bundesliga odds.
Bundesliga Dortmund Vs Dusseldorf Game Info
The Germans have been back in action for a few weeks now and are in fact seeing their season come close to the end. The title looks to be locked up by Bayern Munich, but there is still the business of European places and relegation to be decided. This game actually touches on both of those races, so it has to go down as an important one. Dortmund will hit the road as a 1 1/w goal favorite for this one, with the goal total set at 3 ¾.
Why bet on Fortuna Dusseldorf
With just 4 games left to play, Fortuna Dusseldorf do not have a lot of time left to save themselves from the drop. As it stands right now, they are in the bottom 3 and are 3 points back from safety. That is not a lot of ground to make up, but they also have the issue of goal difference to worry about. Even if they can make up the 3-point gap, they also need to make up the 4-goal deficit in goal difference that they have against Mainz 05, who are sitting right above them. You get the sense that their goal difference might be about to take another hit here, as they lost 5-2 to Dortmund in their previous meeting this season. At home, Dusseldorf are 4-5-6, scoring 17 and surrendering 26.
Why bet on Borussia Dortmund
For the vast majority of the season, Dortmund were very much in the title hunt, but a 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich a couple of weeks ago essentially put an end to their championship aspirations. They are, though, still sitting in second in the Bundesliga standings and looking at a Champions League spot next season. A win here would all but secure that place, so now is not the time for Dortmund to relax. As mentioned earlier, they hammered Dusseldorf 5-2 earlier in the season, but their last road trip to face this team was not quite so dominant, with that one ending in a 2-1 win. On the road this season, Dortmund are 8-3-4, scoring 35 goals and giving up 24.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
Borussia Dortmund have, at times, not looked particularly convincing since returning from the shutdown, so they will be looking to improve and finish the season strong. This is a chance to do just that against a Dusseldorf team that is struggling.
