German Bundesliga Kicks-off with Classic Dortmund Match

Invincible Dortmund welcomes defensive minded M’Gladbach at Signal Iduna Park (17:30 p.m UK Time)

Borussia Dortmund was one of the major disappointments of the last German Bundesliga season, finishing on the 7th place. They have higher expectations for the season that is about to begin and can kick-start their campaign with a victory over archrivals and namesakes M’Gladbach.

Invincible Dortmund in for a Tough Test

Borussia Dortmund won five games in a row and eight of the last nine, while scoring an average of three goals per match. This is an impressive performance for a team that lost some of its key strikers to Bayern Munich one year ago and didn’t bring in new guns. The friendly games campaign went according to the plan, with the former champions scoring a bucketful of goals and keeping clean sheets on most occasions.

M’Gladbach caused them plenty of headaches in the past and their defensive minded approach can pose unique problems to Dortmund. They have their own invincible run to maintain, as they didn’t lose any match in regulation time since the end of the last Bundesliga season.

Reus to Score Against His Former Team

Reus in one of the few strikers that remained with Borussia Dortmund, even though he was rumored to be transferred to Bayern as well. The young forward spent a lot of time on the bench mending his injuries but he has returned to fitness and will be the main threat for M’Gladbach. He is credited with the first chance to score and it is only natural to assume that the visitors will assign two players to guard him at all times.

The home side will not settle for one point at Signal Iduna Park, so punters who trust them to prevail in the opening match will enjoy odds of 3/4 at bet365. The visitors have lower expectations and they wouldn’t mind a draw, priced at 11/4, if opportunity presents itself.
