Our football match prediction:
Buoyed by a thrilling 5-0 win over Koln, Borussia Dortmund take on Hamburger at Volksparkstadion on Matchday 5. The Millionaires outclassed the Billy Goats at their Signal-Iduna-Park at the weekend, with the team managing to keep their fourth consecutive clean sheet in the 2017/2018 Bundesliga campaign. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a brace in the victory over Koln and the opposition defenders are likely to have their work cut out for them when facing the Gabon international. Hamburger have been having their ups and downs at the start of the season, but they will have a big fish to fry in Wednesday’s football match against Borussia Dortmund. Taking everything into account, there is a big value in betting on the visitors, who have been in a splendid form of late. You should bear in mind that the Millionaires are eyeing their fourth straight win over die Rothen in the German top flight.
