Dortmund vs Werder by Sureseye

Dortmund
VS
Werder
As expected, Dortmund have won their first two matches this season in the Bundesliga; first thumping Augsburg 4-0 in the first match on travel but the scoreline does not depict the match play as Dortmund struggled for a sizeable number of times in the match and it was summer signing Aubameyang Pierre timed header that first opened the goals, and two more goals for him. It continued when they welcomed the newcomers Braunschweig whom many had thought Dortmund would perhaps whitewash. Guest were interested in parking the bus and with some moment of share luck, the strategy lasted 0-0 for 75 minutes into the match until some moment of creative plays fell into the legs of Hofmann Jonas who converted dutifully. Host kept on pushing and got rewarded when they were awarded a spot kick. Reus Marco buried the goal and it became 2-0 in the 86 minute. Guest were more than happy to get a consolation when a fed corner kick landed onto Lewandowsky’s head and converted into his own net in the 86 minute. It marked the first time in the last 11 years that the black-and-yellow ever made two straight wins in their season opener.

 

Dortmund will continue to do without long-term injured Lukasz Piszczek and key holding midfielder Ilkay Gundogan. First choice goal keeper Weidenfeller is a strong doubt having just caught a flu but Mitch Langerak can make his third appearance in the goal this season, having already featured in two cup matches.

 

Werder Bremen started the season on a bright note winning their first two matches on a clean sheet. The real test for Bremen will however come in this match as the two opponents played before now were rather much weaker teams and are expected to go down relegation or at most finish bottom half of the table by end of season.

 

They continue to be without key midfielder Philip Bargfrede and defender Lukas Schmitz as well as midfielder Predrag Stevanovic but all three were without any participation so far in the league matches. Defender Luca Caldirola played a strong role in their match against Augsburg but has sprained his ankle in training and his performance today is questionable today but head coach Dutt is confident the team will have a stable defence without him. Right midfielder Clemens Fritz might return after been sidelined last match.

 

Game-wise, Dortmund haven’t started the season in the highest of strength i’d expected but in either case, it is the first back-to-back home wins they’ve got since the last 11 seasons. Robin Huth’s side who have played well at the back in their first two matches (against weak teams though) will hope to keep a clean sheet for the next 270 minutes and will at least pay more attention to the defence lines for the first 45 minutes.
