Borussia Dortmund v Bayer Leverkusen Preview, Bundesliga, Saturday 7th December 2013

Borussia Dortmund’s season may of started strong but it was the game against Bayern Munich which came as a huge blow. Although they may not of expected a result they certainly shouldn’t of rolled over and let last years Bundesliga and European Champions walk away with the result so freely. Granted Borussia Dortmund are riddled with injuries to key players which could of prompted manager Jurgen Klopp to buy in the January transfer window, but recent reports have stated that it is unlikely for them to add any new players.

Good news for Bayer Leverkusen fans as recent reports come in of the possible signing of talented Germany youth international Julian Brandt. Leverkusen’s general manager Rudi Voller has confirmed the club will sign the player from Wolfsburg but is unsure if that will be in the January or summer transfer market. It will certainly strengthen their squad if he does sign as other reports are suggesting English club Chelsea or Bayern Munich could jump in and steal the player who has yet to sign a professional contract.

Borussia Dortmund v Bayer Leverkusen Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

We all know Bayer Leverkusen are in great form when it comes down to playing in the Bundesliga, but we have to look back at who have been their toughest opponents in the league with no huge names sticking out. Borussia Dortmund will be their hardest game yet and away from home will not be an easy result for them to grab. We have seen how they crumble when facing Manchester United twice in the Champions League conceding 9 goals in 2 games.

Borussia Dortmund where themselves disappointing against their own tough test against Bayern Munich in which they lost 3 goals to nil, much to the disappointment of fans and club officials who were hoping to see a more sterner performance for last years Champions League finalists. But with that said I do feel it will be a win for Borussia Dortmund even though they have some serious injuries right now to key players.

With that said my two predictions are for a correct score of 2 – 1 with Dortmund coming away as victors, the other is for both teams to score and Borussia Dortmund to win which is also giving positive odds and should be a safe bet when placing your money down.
