Hamburg v Borussia Dortmund Preview, Bundesliga, Friday 20th November 2015

Although the club are not lighting up the Bundesliga right now they are still making a name for themselves and doing reasonably well being mid-table. During the international break we did see Hamburg destroy Heracles Almelo of Holland by a massive five goals to nil much improving the clubs recent run of form. In the last five games they have only lost the once which was at home to Hannover 96 2 – 1. They have also drawn twice and won the once in the Bundesliga, with the most recent win just a friendly match.

A far better start to the 2015 Bundesliga season for Borussia Dortmund, who are now under the new management of Thomas Tuchel who signed from Mainz 05 back in May. The German has now got the club playing to their full potential, with them now winning the last seven games in all competitions. Their last loss was just before this when they were destroyed by closest rivals, and Bundesliga league leaders Bayern Munich. The club are only five points behind the current champions, and are this season the only likely side to challenge the club for domestic honors.

Hamburg v Borussia Dortmund Team News

Hamburg Team News:

Hamburg are without regulars Albin Ekdal, Dennis Diekmeier and Aaron hunt who are all out due to injuries. Diekmeier should be replaced by Gotoku Sakai at right back while the midfield will look very different come Friday. Diaz will also unlikely feature with the Chile international only returning from the international break today (Thursday). We do see Gojko Kacar return from injury, although I feel playing him on Friday may rush him and potentially aggravate the herniated disc he pulled.

Borussia Dortmund Team News:

Good news for the home side on Friday as they welcome back Marco Reus after suffering a torn muscle fibre in the Europa League game against FK Qabala. Shinji Kagawa should be good to play even though the Japanese star accumulated far more air miles than anyone else during the international break. Dortmund have a full selection available for Fridays game, although I can’t see the manager messing too much with his winning formula.

Hamburg v Borussia Dortmund Head to Head Statistics

Shockingly enough it isn’t Borussia Dortmund who are the more dominant team, having had a poor season previously they lost at home and drew away. In the last five games we have seen Hamburg win three, drawn once and of course lose back in 2013. In total we have 96 games played against each other with things close to being equal between the pair. Dortmund have won two less games with 33 victories, while also drawing a total of 28 games.

Average Goals Per Game?

In the 96 games played out against each other we have seen a total of 341 goals scored, this is going to give us a goals per game average of 3.5. There have been a few strange games over the years, including a 6 – 2, 4 – 1 and 3 – 2, so these will of course change the dynamics as the last two games only the one goal has been scored.

Hamburg v Borussia Dortmund Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Bundesliga action this Friday night can be seen live on BT Sports 1 in High Definition and features mid table side Hamburg against in form Borussia Dortmund who currently occupy second position. Borussia Dortmund may well be away from home this Friday night, yet are certainly seen as the bookmakers favourites to win the game by the end of ninety minutes. They are in great form right now and have won seven of their eight games played since that loss away from home to top club Bayern Munich.

Hamburg have had the better results against Borussia Dortmund, having won two more than their opponents overall. Yet this season we once again see Borussia Dortmund back to their best with them now only five points adrift Bayern Munich who are currently top. Hamburg themselves are doing okay, and as expected occupy the middle of the pack with fifteen points from a total of twelve games played. Borussia Dortmund are also dominating in their Europa League Group with them currently sitting top of the table with ten points out of twelve.

My predictions for this Bundesliga match will of course back that of the away side to win one way or the other, and I also feel there will be more goals scored on Friday than previously seen in the last two fixtures played against each other. So for my banker I plan to take Borussia Dortmund to win the game while conceding zero goals. The next I am going for is a correct score prediction of Borussia Dortmund to win 2 – 0 on the night.
