Ever since stating their objective was not a Champions League place, but the Bundesliga stay, Borussia Dortmund started playing better. Now, BVB are getting ready for the Bundesliga trip to Hamburg while they await on the news about Marco Reus’ injury.
Borussia Dortmund secured a DFB Pokal quarter final qualification after a 2-0 win over Dynamo Dresden, where Immobile scored a brace in the second half. They would have lost the tie if it were up to Mats Hummels, who lost the ball to Eilers right after Immobile opened the score. Langerak saved the team from the blushes and they can now fully concentrate on Bundesliga. BVB had three different goalscorers in the Revierderby win, all in the last 15 minutes of the game, and it remains to be seen just how well they can build a team around Immobile if Reus will be set to miss the Hamburg match.
After the 0-8 disaster against Bayern Munich, Hamburg’s attempts to escape relegation zone are proving futile. They lost against Eintracht Frankfurt (they have Meier) but managed to record an unexpected 1-1 draw against Gladbach. They tend to play more stable at Imtech Arena, which had Zinnbauer state that his team is not thinking about relegation because they will start winning points soon. The good news in their camp came from Behrami and Cleber who took part in team training and are targeting their return on Saturday. Hamburg’s coach also expects Lassoga, Olic and Jansen in today’s training session, but he is unsure whether they will be able to start from the beginning.
Zinnbauer is aware Behrami will lead Hamburg on the pitch and is willing to build the team around him if the medical staff will give the ok until Friday. Dortmund have improved greatly in the last couple of matches, and they are the obvious favorites to win, even if in the last five matches, including the ones when they were at the top of their form, they only have one win, while Hamburg have four wins. If Cleber does indeed return in his center-back role, Immobile and Aubameyang will have trouble scoring early in the game. Speaking about goals, BVB have scored at least three in their last four Bundesliga matches, and in their four wins they have conceded four goals, against Mainz and Stuttgart, the last placed Bundesliga team.
Hamburg have 6.00 odds to win, Dortmund 1.53, and a draw with a lot of goals has 4.33 odds. Both teams to score have 1.80 odds, BVB with a -1 handicap has 2.25 odds, Hamburg with a +1 handicap 2.60 and over 2.5 goals in the second half 3.75 odds. Ramos, Immobile and Aubameyang have 2.30 odds to score, Nicolai Müller 4.00, Van der Vaart 5.50 and Stieber 6.00 as an anytime goalscoer. We are going to bet 7 units on Hamburg to score in the second half with 2.20 odds from Bet365.
Result: -8 units, bet lost
Tottenham’s attempts to put their Premier League’s campaign back on track are kind of hitting a proverbial brick wall. In the last two weeks they lost in Europa League, in Premier League and recently they lost the League Cup final against Chelsea. Tomorrow, they host Swansea, who are trailing four points behind them in the table.
After Tottenham won against Arsenal nothing could have predicted the bad month that followed. However, Harry Kane is still preserving his good form, and Tottenham must implement some changes if they are to finally start winning. When at home, they are undefeated in three consecutive matches, and they have won their last matches against Swansea in all competitions. Spurs have managed to score at least two goals in the last two matches, including the 2-3 defeat against Liverpool. Kyle Walker picked up a knock in the match against Chelsea and is under doubt for Swansea, but other than that Pochettino has the entire squad at his disposal.
Swansea will come to White Hart lane without any pressure, but the one to win for the third time in a row. Sigurdsson and Barrow are under doubt for the Swans, while Tom Caroll cannot play against his club. Swansea won against Burnley and are firmly planted in the first half of the table, but ever since winning against Manchester United, they think they can record another resounding win. Take into account the fact that Swansea lost just one of their last four away games in Premier League and the 4.80 odds for a Swansea win will start making sense.
A Tottenham win has odds as low as 1.75, and a draw comes with 3.80 odds. Both teams to score with 1.80 odds, Tottenham to keep a clean sheet in the first half have 1.45 odds, Swansea 2.00 and Harry Kane has 2.10 odds to score. Soldado and Adebayor both have 2.60 odds to score while Gomis has 3.80 odds as an anytime goalscorer. We are betting 8 units on an odd number of goals in the first half with 2.05 odds from Ladbrokes.
Southampton are attempting once again to get back on track as they get ready to host Crystal Palace on St. Mary’s stadium. Some time ago the hosts were third in Premier League, sure of a Champions League qualification and winning against Arsenal, now they are 6th in the table and at least five points from a direct Champions League qualification.
Last year, home matches were what Southampton could count on for the three points, this year they have three defeats in the last five home matches and two draws. By facing Crystal Palace, they face the same team who sent them home from the FA Cup at the end of January. Alderweireld could finally make a return to the squad, while everyone is left wondering why Southampton suddenly became so shy in front of the goal since they have one of the best midfielders in the league. Many fans attribute Southampton’s drop in form to the fact that the team relies too much on Pelle to deliver, and are limited in options should the striker be absent or in a bad shape.
Crystal Palace are displaying the same mixed results as their opponents and are currently residing on the 12th place in the table. After two defeats in a row with the same 1-2 score against Arsenal and Liverpool, they went on to win with 3-1 against West Ham. Sanogo, Thomas, Williams, Campbell and Chamakh are all absent due to injuries while Murray is suspended. Mutch is under doubt after being forced off the field against West Ham and tipsters are speculating Gayle could be headlining the visitor’s forward line.
The Saints won against Crystal Palace in the first half of the season, but they also won two out of the last six matches which could see the visitors trying to capitalize on said form. A tight match is to be expected from both teams, but the bookmakers favor Southampton to win with 1.70 odds, Crystal Palace with 5.25 and a draw has 3.65 odds. We are going to bet 8 units on both teams to score with 2.15 odds from Titan Bet. If you prefer the goalscorer market the odds are as followed: Pelle has 2.10 odds to score, Mane 2.25, Long 2.30 and Tadic with Elia both have 2.75 odds to score. For Crystal Palace Gayle has 4.00 odds to score, Ameobi 4.33 and Puncheon with Bolasie both have 4.50 odds as anytime goalscorers.
Wolfsburg will put an end to the 22nd Bundesliga matchday when they get ready to host Hertha Berlin to continue their unbeaten run. The hosts are currently the second Bundesliga team, not giving up on the title, with eight points behind the leaders. Hertha Berlin are 17th in Bundesliga and with only 21 points are in the path of direct relegation.
Bas Dost and De Bruyne are where Wolfsburg’s latest goals are coming from, with the Dutchman scoring a brace that gave Wolfsburg the win in their clash against Sporting. Ever since winning against Bayern Munich the Wolves are on a goalscoring spree, Bas Dost leads with six goals in just two matches and Kevin De Bruyne has four goals in this year’s Bundesliga. Perisic and Felipe are still missing for Wolfsburg, while Hertha will be without Ben-Hatira, Cigerci, van der Bergh, Jarstein and Baumjohann.
Hertha Berlin has only one win in this year’s Bundesliga, which is coincidentally the only match where they managed to score, against Mainz 05. The match against Wolfsburg is not meant to help Hertha avoid relegation, if they were unable to score against Freiburg, how are they expected to do so against a team that scored 13 in 2015? Granted Hertha won against Wolfsburg back in September with 1-0, but the Wolves were still finding their Bundesliga footing which they have found now.
Wolfsburg might have invested too much effort in the Sporting game, and might end up being tired, but they can’t afford any points being dropped which is why they can easily score in both halves with 1.98 odds from 888sport. Hertha Berlin have 8.65 odds to win, Wolfsburg have 1.35 and over 2.5 goals comes with 1.60 odds. Wolfsburg to win at least one half have 1.16 odds, Hertha Berlin 3.85 and a Bas Dost goal has 1.93 odds. De Bruyne and Schürrle both have 2.70 odds to score, while Salomon Kalou and Julian Schieber both have 5.50 odds as anytime goalscorers. We are going to bet 7 units on Hertha Berlin with the most corners with 2.95 odds from 888sport.
Result: -7 units, bet lost
Monaco missed a week of competition after the clash with Montpellier was suspended due to heavy rain, but the Derby de la Cote d’Azur is set to take place this Friday evening. The referee of the aforementioned clash suspended all attempts to start and there is no determined date for the replay although the tickets will be valid for the rematch. Now Nice will host Monaco at Allianz Riviera in an attempt to continue their unbeaten run of six matches.
Both teams are hit by injuries and suspensions, but if Moutinho could return for Monaco, Digard and Bohmer will miss for Nice. Monaco are currently on the 5th place in Ligue 1, Nice are 9th and there is a six points gap between the two. The last three head to head matches saw only one goal scored, and the last time Monaco scored more than once was back in 2013. Nice come from three identical goalless draws and will be willing to find the back of the next prior to a crucial week for their European ambitions.
Monaco conceded their first goal in 2015 when they lost against Guinamp, a team that played with 10 men from the get to go, which is the 22nd minute. Diawara is expected to deny Berbatov the goal and a potential win will put Nice above Montepellier in the table. AS Monaco are nine points away from the Champions League this season, and their away record suggests two losses and three wins in the last five Ligue 1 away games.
The visitors are the favorites for the three points despite injury worries, even if they manage to win by just one goal. A Nice win has 3.00 odds, a goalless draw has 6.50 odd and both teams to score have 2.30 odds. We are betting 7 units on an AS Monaco win with 2.40 odds from Unibet even if you could very well place a bet on Nice leading at halftime with 3.75 odds or AS Monaco for the same market with 3.20 odds. Over 1.5 goals in the second half has 2.80 odds, Nice to win at least one half with 2.12 odds and AS Monaco with 1.81 odds for the same market from Unibet.
