Reason For Borussia Dortmund vs Union Berlin Betting Tips

It’s been a fantastic season for Borussia Dortmund so far, as they sit top of the league after a quarter of the campaign. They’ve made an excellent start in the Champions League too, which included their thumping 4-0 win over Atletico Madrid. Dortmund are on course for a great campaign, and they’ll want to keep all trophy avenues open. That makes this week’s clash with Union Berlin a big one for the hosts, who are massive favourites for this clash with opposition from the second tier.

Dortmund’s great start was escalated with their brilliant victory over Atletico, and that success had people asking if they could go all the way in Europe and win the biggest trophy. While it’s not a stellar year for the usual suspects in the Champions League, it does seem like a stretch for Dortmund to go that far this season. Their hopes of success are more likely to come in domestic competitions, having moved two points clear of Bayern, with an incredible +19 goal difference after nine games. Will that high scoring form continue here?

The 2. Bundesliga side are on course to join the likes of Dortmund and Bayern, getting themselves into third place in the league early on. They’ll want a top two finish and an automatic promotion place, but first they test themselves against the best that the top flight has to offer right now. The visitors aren’t in the greatest form coming into this big test, having drawn their last three matches. Will they shake that run and claim a massive cup shock here?

The visitors have a solid record in the Pokal, with their last seven matches in this competition seeing both teams score. On the road, their previous nine outings in the cup have seen them score. Union Berlin will want to follow that up with a strike away to Dortmund, and the fact that the hosts are set to rest players will offer the capital outfit a chance to find the net in this visit.

Dortmund made a great start this season, but back in August they toiled in the first round of the cup. They won 2-1 in extra time at Greuther Furth in the last round, so the visitors could cause problems here. Their last five home matches in this competition have seen both teams score, and we see Dortmund conceding here. We’re backing a home win and both teams to score, along with a heavy win for the Bundesliga leaders.

Head to Head

It's just two years since the last meeting between these two in the cup, which Dortmund won on penalties.
