The match

The third matchday of the German Bundesliga sees Borussia Dortmund looking for their third consecutive win when they host Werder Bremen at the Signal Iduna Park. Last season’s runners-up have taken six points from a possible six after a 1-0 win over Leverkusen to open the season was followed up with a 3-1 away win over Freiburg the last time out. Edin Terzic’s men will try to stay perfect in their uphill battle to dethrone rivals Bayern and prevent the Bavarians from lifting an 11th consecutive league title. The visiting Bremen come into this match still seeking their first league win of the season after two consecutive 2-2 draws to kick off the new campaign. The four-time Bundesliga champions won promotion from the second division last season and will be looking to consolidate their top flight status in the 2022/23 season. 

The 2021/22 season saw Borussia Dortmund as the most entertaining home side as their matches at the Signal Iduna Park were often back-and-forth, high-scoring encounters. BVB held the highest average of total goals scored at 4.71 per match in front of the home fans and would end the season with 13 of their 17 home league matches seeing both teams find the net. Even though the first match of the new season finished in a 1-0 win, Leverkusen were not without their chances as Die Werkself squandered two clear cut chances while the hosts could’ve easily had a few more, ending the match with three clear cut chances created. Dortmund could struggle to keep Werder Bremen off the score sheet considering they also conceded two clear cut chances to Freiburg last time out while the Bremen have looked solid on the offensive side in the early days.

Key Statistics

  • 15 of Dortmund’s 17 home league matches last season finished with over 2.5 goals.
  • Werder Bremen has seen both over 2.5 goals and both teams to score in their last six consecutive matches including the preseason.
  • Dortmund has scored in an incredible 20 straight matches against Werder Bremen with five of the last six between the two ending with over 2.5 goals.

The bet of our experts

We’re going to back both teams to score and over 2.5 goals as our bet for this one. This is an excellent price for a bet that hit at a 76% rate last season with Dortmund as the home side. Bremen come into this match as significant underdogs but should be able to net at least one with how their attack has looked coupled with Dortmund’s defensive performances in the first two matchdays. While it was against lower level competition, the visitors did see 12 of their 17 away matches end with both teams getting on the scoresheet in the 2. Bundesliga last season. A 3-1 win for Dortmund looks to be on the cards here.
