Match Preview: Dortmund 4-0 Freiburg Predictions and Betting Tips 03.10.2020
Tips & Predictions For Today, October 3, 2020.
League: GERMANY: Bundesliga – Round 3
Match: 14:30 Dortmund – Freiburg
Tip: Home Win
Match Result: 4:0 WON!!!
- Whilst a 2-0 defeat at Augsburg in their last Bundesliga outing would have shocked Borussia Dortmund, it was actually their third defeat by at least a two-goal margin across their last five top-flight games (W2), and their 18th straight Bundesliga match that saw the team that scored first go on to take all three points (W13, L5).
- Recent history is in their favour to get back on track here, as each of the past five seasons saw Dortmund win their opening two home league games. Furthermore, across those five campaigns (and including their first home match of this season), Dortmund have only ever lost twice from the 62 top-flight home games in which they netted first (W53, D7, L2).
- Freiburg may have started the season unbeaten (W1, D1), but their current 18-game winless H2H run against Dortmund shows exactly why they’re big underdogs here (D3, L15). If they’re to get an unlikely result it could come from their set-piece prowess though – not only was Freiburg’s 18 goals from dead-ball situations last term the second biggest tally in the Bundesliga, they’ve already scored from two set-pieces this season!
- If the visitors can avoid defeat, it will be their best start to a Bundesliga season since 2004/05, however they’ve conceded in 16 straight away league fixtures. They did score before HT in the last five though, and saw the match opener netted within 15 minutes in the previous three, so an exciting game should be on the cards regardless.
- Players to watch: Erling Braut Haaland has scored in five of Dortmund’s seven Bundesliga home wins in 2020, including a second-half brace in their home opener this term.
- Nils Petersen has scored the opener by the 15th minute in both of Freiburg’s league matches this season.
- Hot stat: Dortmund have scored the opener within 20 minutes in four of the last five H2Hs.
