Borussia Dortmund to win @ 3/10 with Coral

Borussia Dortmund picked up their first win of 2018 last Friday with a 3-2 victory over Cologne. The result made headlines around Europe because of the instant impact of Michy Batshuayi. On loan at Dortmund from Chelsea for the rest of the season, Batshuayi was coming in as a replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the striker who moved to Arsenal for £60 million.


It’s hard to fathom why Antonio Conte has such an aversion to playing Batshuayi given his decent record for the Blues. His confident start to life at Dortmund put further pressure on the Italian manager with Chelsea falling to successive defeats to mid-table outfits.


In what most will take as a good omen, Batshuayi is actually the first player to score two on his Bundesliga debut since Aubameyang. This weekend he’ll be tasked with showing that it was no fluke and further proving that he’s an elite-level forward.

Hamburg arrive after two decent results under new boss Bernd Hollerbach, draws against RB Leipzig and Hannover. If Hamburg fans don’t have a chant inspired by Gwen Stefani’s Hollaback Girl then it’s a crime.

Team News

Hollaback Girl is soundtracking the rest of this writer’s preview. So excuse me if I say that Hamburg’s recent record against Dortmund is bananas (b-a-n-a-n-a-s). The Dinosaur of the Bundesliga has lost all four of its last four scraps with Dortmund heavily.

We can see Batshuayi continuing his hot streak in front of the Yellow Wall and adding to Hamburg’s woes.
