 Dortmund Form & Team News

Due to an indifferent start to their season, Dortmund is currently sitting in the fourth position with 29 points. They have played 16 matches and have nine wins, two draws, and five losses in the league. Dortmund have scored 32 and conceded 20 goals.

Dortmund has four players out due to injury problems and one player out due to suspension. Dortmund would miss the tenacity and energy of Emre Can in the midfield as the German is suspended after his yellow card in his previous match. Giovanni Reyna, Thorgan Hazard, Marcel Schmelzer and Axel Witsel would be the other absentees for their encounter against Leverkusen. Erling Haaland has been the most important player for Dortmund as they lacked the killer instinct in front of the goal in his absence.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Both teams are having similar seasons as they are level on points and are separated only by goal difference. Leverkusen’s questionable home record and Dortmund’s form on the road definitely give the edge to Dortmund in this match. 

Tip 1: Borussia Dortmund To Win

Borussia Dortmund is completely a different side on the road. Despite their inconsistent start they have won four out of their last five matches and suffered one loss to the surprise package of the season, Union Berlin. Dortmund has also been the dominant side historically in this fixture. In the last five head-to-head matches, Dortmund were the victors on four occasions and Leverkusen was able to win only once. In their last away game against a tough Leipzig side, Haaland and Sancho were exceptional as the pair grabbed two goals and two assists between them. So it looks likely that Dortmund would leapfrog Leverkusen after their midweek encounter, which is reflected by the odds at 2.08 available on the Casumo sportsbook.

 Tip 2: Total Goals Over 2.5

In the last five head-to-head matches between the two sides, every encounter has gone over 2.5 goals. The scorelines in those matches were 4-3, 4-0, 3-2, 2-4 and 4-0. Goals have been a feature in the matches that have been played by both teams this season. In the four out of the last six Leverkusen matches in Bundesliga there have been more than 2.5 goals. Dortmund has a similar story, in their case, five out of the last six Bundesliga matches had over 2.5 goals. Hence there are better chances that there would be more than 2.5 goals in this match at 1.55 odds available on Casumo sportsbook.


Bundesliga seems to be really exciting this season as the four teams at the top are separated by four points. Both teams would like to overcome their disappointing performances in their previous match and get the victory to gain momentum for the upcoming second half of the season. Summarizing a couple of bets mentioned above

  1. Borussia Dortmund to win @ 2.08
  2. Total goals over 2.5 @ 1.55
