My 2nd match is German Bundesliga fixture between BVB Dortmund and VFB Stuttgart
Finally Dortmund is out of the Champions League, after losing at home (0 - 1) TO Tottenham earlier this week. They can now focus all their attention to the Bundesliga where they have been dropping points with many unjustified draws, after starting the season on a strong pace.
Surely the hosts will know that it does not get easier for them, more than today's fixture, where their opponent is 18th on the league table, 18th on the offence and 19th on the defensive ranked teams for the season. The opponents also are ranked 117th on the current teams performance form table, and have lost 3 of their recent away fixtures by 2 goals or more (D1, L3), failing to score in two of those matches.
with exception of recent glitches in two matches against Tottenham, and an away fixture against Nurnberg, the hosts have not failed to score a goal in the rest of the recent 20 fixtures. In fact the hosts have scored 3 goals or more against this particular opponent in 6 of their recent 8 fixtures, in addition to winning those 6 games.
The race for the Bundesliga title is all that Dortmund have to play for this season, excluding fighting to qualify for a spot in next year's Champions league, after having crashed out on penalties from the DFB Pokal against Werder Bremen. Surely the coach, and all the team members will know that the fans expect a strong win today, to retain hope of finishing the season with a trophy.
I am betting that Dortmund, will try and succeed to turn around their recent poor fortunes using this match as a fulcrum, so I o for Home (-1), with the expectations that the host will stamp their authority early in this fixture, and go on to seal their expected victory by at least a 2 goal margin.
