Dortmund vs Hamburg by Gustav
Dortmund still can't get going into the right direction in Bundesliga, but at least they come from a much better performance in Champions League, as the team won over Anderlecht 3:0, having complete domination over their opponent for the whole game.
It was one of the best performance of theirs this season, as Immobile scored the opening goal in third minute, with Ramos adding two more, in a game that could have easily end in much bigger winning margin for the Germans. As said, they aren't doing well in Bundesliga so far, with the team being located in the middle of the table with two victories, a draw and three defeats. Victory is top priority at this moment, as the team needs urgently points. Milos Jojic could replace Sebastian Kehl in central midfield, while they continue to miss Gundogan, Reus, Kirh and Mkhitaryan, all four being already long term absences. Blaszczykowski is still unfit, while Ramos and Immobile are set to start upfront.
Hamburg, on the other side, is still searching for the first victory in the new season. Currently, they have only two points, being locked at the rock bottom place, three points below the safe zone and will surely experience much more problems in case they don't improve soon.
Even worse thing would be that they have scored only one goal in first six rounds, with the team coming from a 1:2 defeat at home against Eintracht Frankfurt. They actually did quite well in that game, but missed way to many chances, to see the team conceding the second goal in 89th minute. Right winger Muller probably won't recover on time, while the guests also miss defender Rajkovic, midfielders Beister and Ilicevic and goalkeeper Adler, all being sidelined with injuries.
Dortmund played really great game against Anderlecht and in case they repeat performance anything close to it, there is no doubt that the hosts will have rather easy time playing against completely unconvincing Hamburg.
