Borussia Dortmund v Freiburg – Signal Iduna Park at 14:30
Bundesliga table-toppers Borussia Dortmund returned from the international break with a 2-1 triumph on their travels at Mainz. Head coach Lucien Favre was delighted with his team’s efforts in what was a potentially trappy tie, and a result that has now established a nine-point advantage over Bayern Munich.
Dortmund are now unbeaten in their opening 12 league matches for the second time in their long and rich history with Marco Reus and Paco Alcacer again instrumental in victory. Reus, in particular, has been exceptional this season with his conditioning playing a big part in his consistently high quality displays.
Table-toppers backed for convincing win
Die Schwarzgelben have been nothing short of imperious in 2018/19 under Favre’s watch and before their midweek match at home to Club Brugge, Saturday afternoon’s hosts had W12-D3-L1 of their 16 Bundesliga and Champions League outings this season. BVB have hit at least three goals on nine occasions and won by two or more goals in seven such fixtures.
If we only look at matches at their Westfalenstadion home, Dortmund have plundered 30 goals in eight games, notching three or more times in seven showdowns and winning by two goals or more in five outings. In six of those encounters Dortmund have generated at least 2.50 Expected Goals.
They’re phenomenal figures that make backing a Dortmund win with a -1.5 Asian Handicap hurdle a fairly routine and straightforward selection this weekend when Freiburg arrive in North Rhine-Westphalia. The visitors are averaging 2.00 goals per-game against on the road and have lost 12/22 (55%) on their travels.
Freiburg unlikely to stop the Dortmund juggernaut
The Black Forest boys are comfortably nestled in mid-table following a fair 1-1 draw with Werder Bremen last weekend. However, Cristian Steich’s troops continue to suffer from numerous injuries and their small squad might not be capable of coping with the rigours of halting the Dortmund juggernaut.
Since returning to the top-flight of German football, Freiburg have been beaten by a two-goal margin in 10/22 (45%) away days, managing to silence their hosts on only two occasions. The guests have registered only two triumphs in that time and look set to suffer at the Westfalenstadion.
Asian Handicap Betting Recommendation: Borussia Dortmund -1.50 at 1.890
