High Scoring Dortmund Seeks Rare Road Win at LeverkusenPublished October 1, 2016 by Florin P
Leverkusen prepares defensive lineup ahead of Dortmund visit (5:30 p.m UK Time).
Dortmund is only credited with the second chance to win the German championship this season. Bayern has the best claim at the title, but the team from West Germany is within striking distance. They can consolidate their position if they defeat Leverkusen on the road, but this won’t be an easy task. The hosts are yet to lose a game in front of their fans and have scored 3 goals over the weekend, to defeat Mainz.
The Goal-Scoring Machine of Dortmund
Recent results are nothing short of impressive for the visitors, who have crossed opponents both at home and on the road. They are at the time of writing the best scoring team in the German championship, with an average of more than three goals per match. The busy schedule doesn’t seem to have an impact on Dortmund, which is just as effective in all competitions.
Aubemeyang is their most prolific goalscorer, but midfielders are pitching in and contribute offensively. The most impressive part is that Dortmund has three defenders who have added their names on the list of goal scorers and two of them have defeated opposing goalkeepers twice.
Injuries Pileup for Leverkusen
The hosts were under tremendous pressure from the fans to win back-to-back games and they are yet to meet their expectations. Quite often they find themselves trailing opposing teams and then play catch-up until the very last minute. Last weekend they got lucky to score twice on the road and snatched all three points in the last minute of overtime.
Dortmund is a tough nut to crack and if they’re given the chance to score early, Leverkusen will have a snowflake’s chance in hell. It doesn’t happen that often for bookmakers to offer odds that exceed even value on this team to win on the road. 11/10 is good enough to take the chances of betting against Leverkusen at BayArena and these are the odds offered by bet365 Sports.
