Borussia Dortmund v Wolfsburg predictions and betting tips for this weekend’s German Cup final from our football tipster.
Charismatic Dortmund coach Jürgen Klopp take charge of his troops for the very last time as they take on Dieter Hecking’s free-scoring Wolfsburg side in the DFB-Pokal final this Saturday and we have free weekend football tips.
Dortmund’s fans gave Klopp an unprecedented send off in his final home game at the Westfalenstadion last weekend, and his players now have the chance to mark his very last game with a fitting send off – by winning the German Cup final.
Wolfsburg will be looking to spoil Klopp’s yellow and black party by emulating the 2-1 victory they managed over Dortmund just 14 days ago in the League.
Dortmund have managed to turn around their season after it looked to be heading for a relegation scrap, sitting second from bottom on Christmas day with just three wins from 19 to their name. However nine wins from the final 15 games has seen them leapfrog their way to safety.
A win in the DFB-Pokal final would be enough to secure an automatic Europa League spot for Klopp’s side. Coupled with the fact that this will be an emotional occasion for Klopp as well as Dortmund’s players and fans, there will be a lot of pressure on them to provide a fitting farewell. However, the big trait of Klopp’s side is being able to put in a performance when it really matters and that’s a key feature for our Borussia Dortmund v Wolfsburg betting tips.
Wolfsburg finished second in the table behind Bayern Munich, scoring the second highest amount of goals with the fourth best defensive record in the league. However, they finished the season with just two wins from their final six games compared to Dortmund’s record of four wins from their final six.
Dortmund may have finished five places and 23 points behind their opponents on Saturday, but they will start the game as favourites due to their excellent end of season form.
Both teams have been in excellent scoring form of late and neither side tend to go on the defensive.
Our first Dortmund v Wolfsburg betting tip is for there to be over 2.5 goals, the best odds of 3/4 can be found with Ladbrokes.
Despite Dieter Hecking’s side winning their most recent clash at the Volkswagen Arena just two weeks ago, I think that on neutral ground Dortmund will have the edge in this tie. Everything is set up for Klopp to depart in a blaze of glory after digging their way out of an early season rut.
The second weekend football betting tip for Dortmund v Wolfsburg in the German Cup final is for Dortmund to lift the trophy. Odds of 5/6 can be found with Coral.
Given the exciting brand of football that both managers employ, this match is set up to be full of goals. I expect both teams to score, and I expect that Dortmund will notch a win by a single goal margin. A high scoring victory for Klopp would be a truly appropriate way to end his tenure on.
The third Borussia Dortmund v Wolfsburg prediction is for this game to finish 3-2 to Dortmund, the odds for the correct score tip are 25/1 at Coral.
Over 2.5 goals – 3/4 with Ladbrokes.
Borussia Dortmund to lift the trophy – 5/6 with Coral.
Dortmund to win 3-2 – 25/1 with Coral.
