Borussia Dortmund face the tough task of going to Bayern Munich for a DFB Pokal Quarter-Final clash tonight, and looking at the betting odds, it is Bayern who are expected to progress.
As most of us know by now, the Bayerm Munich juggernaut is heading towards a cup treble this season and the only side in Germany who could stop that is tonight’s opponents, however they are not the force they were last season domestically and sit 17 points adrift of Bayern in the Bundesliga.
The home side come into this match on a dreadful run of keeping no clean sheet in two matches (after previously going 600+ minutes without conceding), luckily for them they managed to score nine goals in those two matches, putting the Champions League clash with Arsenal out of their reach, and smashing six past Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga.
Dortmund have only won one of their last four matches and one of their last four matches away but they have a sound record against Bayern Munich, tasting defeat just once in the last seven mettings between the sides winning five of those. The league clash at the Allianz Arena this season resulted in a 1-1 draw.
Looking at the betting the price of Bayern Munich to win will appeal to the short priced betting punter, but we want to find a bit more value, Bayern look unstoppable this season and it is impossible to oppose them but we don’t think this will be the usual walk in the park for the Baverians, so we will chance a 2-1 Bayern Munich win at 8/1 (Bet Victor). This is the same scoreline the Super Cup at the start of the season finished. For a bit more insurance on this bet, take Bayern Munich to win by one goal at 14/5 (Ladbrokes).
Looking at the goalscorer markets, there is undoubted talent on either side but we have to side with the Bayern Munich players and Mario Mandzukic at 7/2 with Betway.
