Our football match prediction:
Borussia Dortmund did remarkably well to beat Benfica in the Champions League last 16, but they suffered a 2-1 loss to Hertha Berlin in their last league fixture. It has to be noted, though, that coach Thomas Tuchel mixed the squad against the capital club and that is the main reason why the Millionaires failed to grab something from Saturday’s football game. Borussia Dortmund remained in third place in the Bundesliga standings and they will be looking to start a new winning run in the German elite division when they welcome Ingolstadt at their Signal-Iduna-Park. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been scoring goals for fun of late and we predict that the team’s top scorer is going to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. Ingolstadt are not regarded as good travelers and they are unlikely to spoil Borussia’s party at Signal-Iduna-Park.
Highlighted Player (Piszczek):
Born on 3rd June 1985, Lukasz Piszczek is one of Poland’s most famous footballers at the moment, having made a name for himself thanks to some impressive performances for Borussia Dortmund. The full-back’s talent was spotted early on by Hertha scouts, and it is important to note that he began his career as a striker, winning the top goalscorer award at the Under-19 Euro in 2004. Following some excellent displays at said tournament, Piszczek was signed by Hertha, but he would go on to spend next three years on loan at Zaglebie Lubin. After returning to the club, the Polish footballer played on the left wing, but then switched to right-back as Arne Friedrich got injured and has played there ever since. In May 2010, Piszczek signed for Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer and has since developed into one of world’s leading right-sided defenders, sparking interest from clubs like Real Madrid and Manchester United. The full-back made over 45 appearances for the national team since he was handed his debut in 2007, representing his country at three successive European Championship finals.
