Our match prediction:
Dortmund’s amazing season took a great hit at Anfield, since die Borussen suffered a loss against their former manager in the dying moments of the match (4-3). What seemed to be a sure win after the first hour of the game, turned into a dramatic finish and an unbelievable return of the Reds. Such an ending overshadowed the miraculous performance of Reus, Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang. However, there is not much time to contemplate on the result, since Thomas Tuchel’s side head back home for yet another interesting clash with Hamburg. Volksparkstadion outfit are on a four-game undefeated run against Dortmund, they have recently ended their negative away record by defeating Hannover, so they have much to hope for in the forthcoming encounter. On the other hand, the Black and Yellows are undefeated on home soil in the Bundesliga this season, with mere two draws in the process, and given the fact they need to bounce back on winning ways, we predict a sure win for Westfalenstadion outfit.
