Borussia Dortmund vs Hamburger SV
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 10 February 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Signal-Iduna-Park (Dortmund).
Michy Batshuayi made a dream debut for Borussia Dortmund last Friday when the Belgian striker bagged a brace to help his new team return on the winning ways away at RhenEnergieStadion. Former Chelsea man has also set up the third goal with a delivery for Andre Schurrle and he will no doubts be the team’s main weapon in the final third this Saturday when BVB host Hamburger SV at Signal-Iduna-Park.
The Red Shorts have continued their struggles last Sunday when Filip Kostic only managed to notch a late-equalizer to save a point for Bernd Hollerbach’s side in the home tie with Hannover 96. The Serbian striker is actually HSV’s lone scorer in four games in 2018 as he was also on target in the 1-1 draw away at RB Leipzig on Hollerbach’s debut on the bench two weeks ago.
Hamburger SV are one of league’s worst travellers this term and they’ll come into this having lost seven and drawn two of last nine away fixtures in Bundesliga. Knowing that they are about to tackle the fourth-placed Borussia Dortmund on the road this weekend, it is hard to see the Red Shorts pulling off an upset here. The visitors could, however, build confidence on the fact that BVB have won just one of last seven league outings in front of the home crowd.
Borussia Dortmund vs Hamburger SV: Head-to-head
Borussia Dortmund have been super dominant in the most recent history of H2H meetings with Hamburger SV.
BVB have won each of last four H2H encounters between the two sides by three goals difference.
Three of last four matches have ended with the same scoreline (3-0 for BVB).
Borussia Dortmund vs Hamburger SV: Prediction
The hosts should really not afford a slip up in the battle for the top four finish here given that they play one of Bundesliga’s weakest travellers this weekend.
Michy Batshuayi made a phenomenal debut last Friday and we can easily see the Belgian forward on target here as well.
