Borussia Dortmund Preview – Will Dortmund stay in the hunt for a top four spot with a win?

Back to back wins against Stuttgart and Werder Bremen have revived Dortmund’s chances of qualifying for next season’s Champions League. Dropping points with 2-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt and 2-2 draw against FC Koln looked to have seriously affected that objective but they’re now back to within four points of fourth place and have five games to get the points they need.

Dortmund’s win over Werder was not only impressive as they strolled to a 4-1 success but it was also important as it came immediately after their exit to Manchester City in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Dortmund performed admirably over two legs but ultimately came up short.

Borussia Dortmund to score in both halves

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Tuesday 20 April)

Edin Terzic knows that his time in interim charge will come to an end when this season finishes but he still has the prospect of ensuring Dortmund are playing Champions League football for his successor Marco Rose as well as potentially lifting the German Cup.

Superstar striker Erling Haaland bounced back to form on Sunday with two goals. They were his first since the 20th of March and he had went four games without a goal for his club, as well as failing to score in any of the three international matches with Norway during that time. If he is back scoring regularly then Dortmund’s objectives become much more achievable.

Union Berlin Preview – Can Union keep alive their hopes of European qualification with a result?

Union travel to Dortmund on Wednesday just six points behind their opponents which is an indication of just how good this season has been. Currently eighth, Union are one of a handful of clubs search for the final European place. Qualifying for the Europa League would be a massive achievement for a club who are competing in the Bundesliga for just the second time in their history.

A 2-1 win at home to Stuttgart at the weekend was Union’s first win in four matches and they now face a very challenging run-in which sees them face four of the top six in their remaining five games. It’s clearly going to be a huge effort but this club revel in being the underdog.

The biggest barrier to Union getting the points they need appears to be their form on the road. It’s just one win in their last seven away games, a run which has seen them lose four. It’s not going to get easier either with visits to Wolfsburg and Bayer Leverkusen to come after this.

Union have also failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last five games and will be under pressure from the off against a Dortmund team who need to win

Both these teams are in need of points for their respective hopes of playing in European competition next season. Dortmund appeared to have found some form again but having lost 10 of their 29 Bundesliga games so far this season, there’s no hiding away from their inconsistent nature as well as their defensive vulnerabilities.
