Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Borussia Dortmund and Greuther Furth face each other in a David-vs-Goliath clash at Signal Iduna Park on Wednesday evening. Borussia aim to melt Bayern Munchen’s six-point advantage in the Bundesliga standings, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the rock-bottom side. As always, a man to watch in the home team will be Erling Haland, while all Schmelzer, Reyna, Moukoko, Akanji, and Guerreiro remain in the recovery room. Donyell Malen is rated doubtful for the midweek game.
The newcomers, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Union Berlin, and they managed to get one. Greuther Furth are high on confidence following their first win of the process, but they will have a big fish to fry in Wednesday’s clash. The rock-bottom side struggle in matches against top-table sides, and they are unlikely to spoil Borussia’s party at Signal Iduna Park.
Highlighted Player (Marco Reus):
Marco Reus is a German football player who was born on 31 May, 1989. The pacey attacking midfielder, who is capable of playing as a winger as well, started his senior career at Rot Weiss Ahlen and it has to be noted that he made 43 league appearances for the club in lower leagues.
In 2009 he signed a four-year contract with Borussia M’gladbach and he scored his first Bundesliga goal against Mainz on 28 August, 2009. After impressing with the Fohlen in the 2011/2012 Bundesliga campaign, he joined Borussia Dortmund at the end of the season. He has been playing for the Millionaires ever since and he represents Germany on the international stage as well.
However, he was more than unfortunate to miss the 2014 FIFA World Cup with injury when Joachim Low’s team lifted the prestigious trophy. To make things even worse for Marco Reus, he was forced to withdraw from the Germany Euro 2016 squad as well (injury). The German ace has a contract with Borussia Dortmund which expires on 30 June, 2019.
