Hamburger vs Dortmund by Marlo

Hamburg will entertain Borussia Dortmund here for Round 13 of the Bundesliga.


Hamburg are 11th with 15 points from 11 games while Dortmund are desperately trying to keep up the pace with Bayern Munich on 29 points from 12 games.


Visitors are priced around 1/3 to win the game and at that price, it is way too short to tip outright or even get involved unless you are a heavy hitter. Some will place them in accumulators and that seems reasonable as they have a decent chance as reflected by the odds.


Visitors are the 2nd highest goal scorers in the division with their 35 strikes trailing Bayern's 37 and its easy to see why as Aubeymeyang is tied with Lewandowski on 14 strikes and they are tit for tat as the league leading goalscorers.


However, it's not all about their leading goal scorer as Marco Reus , Mkhitaryan, Kagawa and Januzai are all part of an extremely potent offensive unit.


Hamburg did well to stay in the division last season as they were relegation contenders throughout the season and a decent start sees them towards mid table. They will need to stay there and while a large part of that depends on home form this is a home game where they will do well to be competitive and get any points from. They will need to score to stay in the game as Dortmund are averaging nearly 3 per game on their own.


As such, I like the chances of Dortmund winning while conceding. I missed the opportunity to tip this for their last game verus Schalke. This market paid out in 5 of Dortmund's last 6 games all comps and I see no reason why it won't happen here.
