Borussia Dortmund v Werder Bremen Preview, Bundesliga, Friday 23rd August 2013

Borussia Dortmund have started their new season in excellent fashion by winning both of their opening two games and coach Jurgen Klopp will have been very happy with the effort shown by his players. An opening day 0-4 away win against Augsburg was followed up by a tough 2-1 victory at home against Bundesliga new-comers Eintracht Braunschweig and the fans will be confident that their side can make it three wins on the bounce when playing host against arch rivals Werder Bremen come Friday night.

Werder Bremen have also started their new campaign well by also winning both of their opening games. A 0-1 away victory against Eintracht Braunschweig, was followed by a 1-0 victory at home last weekend against Augsburg and although they failed to match the performance that Borussia Dortmund had against Augsburg the players and fans will still be in confident mood of obtaining at least something from this game.

Borussia Dortmund v Werder Bremen Team News

Borussia Dortmund Team News:

Coach Jurgen Klopp has almost a full squad to choose his starting lineup from for this game with the only absentee’s being defender Lukasz Piszczek who is not expected back until the end of November and midfielder Ilkay Gundogan who is still receiving treatment for a back problem and is expected back towards the end of August.

The rumours circulating about Chelsea’s interest in striker Robert Lewandowski will not have pleased Dortmund fans and if these rumours turn out to be true then the 24 year old Polish International could be left out of the starting lineup for this game.

Werder Bremen Team News:

Joseph Akpala has been linked with a move to Championship outfit Reading and has not been involved in any of the opening two games, so it looks unlikely that will change for this one despite coach Robin Dutt having a number of players unavailable for this game with injuries to defenders Clemns Fritz, Lukas Schmitz and Cimo Rocker. Midfielders Tom Trybull, Philipp Bargfrede, Aleksander Stevanovic and Predrag Stevanovic.

Borussia Dortmund v Werder Bremen Match Betting Odds Market.

Borussia Dortmund have an excellent record against Werder Bremen and with home advantage it comes as no surprise to see the online bookmakers having Jurgen Klopp’s side as the clear odds on favourites to win this game at a current best price of 1/4 with Paddy Power – £50 Free Bets for New Customers.

The Draw doesn’t look likely having only happened 16 times in the previous 92 meetings, but some would say one is due and at a current best price of 6/1 with BetVictor – £25 Free Bets for New Customers, I can see some punters taking an interest as a cover bet.

Werder Bremen have matched their hosts so far by winning both of their opening games of the season, but with a number of injuries to the side and having not won at Signal-Iduna-Park since January 2009 their current price of 12/1 with Sky Bet – £10 Free Bets, No Deposit Required for New Customers, pretty much reflects their chances in this one.

Borussia Dortmund v Werder Bremen Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

This should be business as usual for Borussia Dortmund, but if Robert Lewandowski doesn’t play due to rumours about Chelsea preparing a huge bid for his services, then the result of this match could very well be a lot different than many people expect.

However, rumours like this circulate around all the time at this point of the season so I am not going to pay much attention to it for the moment and expect the Polish International to be involved from the start and with that in mind Dortmund should be far too strong for Bremen here and I would expect Jurgen Klopp’s side to win by at least a couple of goals margin on the night.

6 from the last 8 meetings have seen 2 or 3 goals scored when these two sides have met each other and that looks the stand out bet for this game with maybe a saver on the big Pole to score the first goal.
