Bundesliga / Union Berlin vs Borussia Dortmund – The two teams started the new season in totally different ways but that was expected. New member of the Bundesliga, Union Berlin, didn’t win but they won one point and they won it away. Given their ambitions two victories of Borussia Dortmund in first two rounds are expected. These two teams had met in the DFB-Pokal last year and Borussia won at home by 3-2.
Game Union Berlin vs Borussia Dortmund begins 31.08.2019 at 18:30 CET
Union Berlin will not nicely remember its debut in the Bundesliga given defeat they suffered in match with Leipzig. It didn't help that they played at home and after the first half they were losing 0-3. They received one more goal before the end and those 4-0 was a sound defeat, but they did a bit better in the second round. They faced Augsburg away and were losing 1-0 when reservist Andersson scored the first historic goal for Union Berlin in the Bundesliga and brought the first point to his team. After that, T. Schlotterbeck was sent off and he cannot play now. Friedrich will replace him at the stopper position, Andersson is back to attack, and perhaps Schmiedebach gets a chance from the first minute.
Probable lineups Union Berlin: Gikiewicz – Trimmel, Friedrich, Subotic, C. Lenz – Schmiedebach, Andrich – Becker, Ingvartsen, Bulter – Andersson
Borussia expectedly started with two wins and is expectedly very efficient. What is interesting is that they were the first to received goal in both matches but then they managed to turn the result up-side down. Augsburg took a lead in Dortmund already in the first minute but then was steamrolled as Borussia scored five goals before the end and won. In the second round Borussia was trailing behind for one goal Cologne till about 20 minutes before the end when they equalised, while in last five minutes they scored two more goals and won. P. Alcacer and Sancho were scorers again and the starting line-up was the same, with now Brandt will replace injured T. Hazard.
Probable lineups Borussia Dortmund: Burki – Piszczek, Akanji, Hummels, N. Schulz – Weigl, Witsel – Sancho, Reus, Brandt – P. Alcacer
Betting Pick: Union Berlin vs Dortmund
Again, difficult homes match for Union Berlin and they can only hope to put up a better resistance. On the other hand Borussia has no problems with goal scoring, which is why the match in Berlin could be very efficient.
Pick: Over 3 goals
Odds: 1.71 at bethard (down to 1.61 can be played)
