The Bundesliga may not start for another week but Borussia Dortmund’s opponents in the first round of the DFB Pokal, third division side Uerdingen, are already four matches into their league campaign. Is their a massive shock on the cards?

Uerdingen Preview – Can third division minnows spring an almighty shock in the Pokal?

The third division in Germany is well underway and Uerdingen will have no excuses for lacking preparation as they get excited for the visit of one of Germany’s biggest clubs. The Duisburg-based club have won once and drawn twice in their first four games. Their solitary win came on the opening day of the season – 1-0 success against Hallescher. A defeat to Bayern Munich’s second team ranks as their only loss so far before a couple of 2-2 draws. It’s a decent return for the club and likely to be the story of their season as they bid to avoid a relegation battle.

Focus for Uerdingen now turns to the DFB Pokal and the glamour of facing Borussia Dortmund. It will be a packed capacity for the visit of the Bundesliga giants and a passionate following behind them as it always is in  Germany. Firmly up against it to get a result, it will still be an occasion to savour for the hosts and one they will be sure to enjoy.

Dortmund to win both halves


Borussia Dortmund Preview – Will Dortmund’s class shine through and see an easy progress into the next round?

The new Bundesliga season does not begin for another week but Dortmund already have a trophy in the bag heading into that match. Lucien Favre’s team produced an excellent performance to beat rivals Bayern 2-0 last Saturday in their own stadium. Granted, it will not make up for their agonising defeating in the league last season but it will give them some belief that they can go better this term. It’s easy to be critical of Dortmund and not holding on to their lead, but this is a young and inexperienced team. It’s one of the reasons that Mats Hummels has returned to the club. His arrival should provide some more nous and assist in situations where they were naive at times.

Hummels has been joined by a number of exciting additions further up the field. Thorgan Hazard and Julian Brandt were two of the most explosive attackers in the league last season and will add further firepower to Dortmund’s already packed arsenal. Nico Schulz has arrived from Hoffenheim as well and his dynamism from midfield should be another asset. The squad is stronger on paper and if they can put it all together they will be a threat to all in the league.

Key-Facts – Uerdingen v Borussia Dortmund

  • Uerdingen are four games into their league campaign and it’s been a solid enough start with five points accumulated thus far
  • Borussia Dortmund won their first game of the season  in style by winning last week’s Super Cup with a 2-0 win over Bayern Munich
  • Dortmund have strengthened their squad considerably over the summer and have brought in Hazard and Brandt in the forward areas

Uerdingen Borussia Dortmund Betting Advice

On paper this looks a complete mismatch and if the visitors play like anything to their potential then it should be straightforward. The lower league club will have a raucous following to help them on their way. It’s unlikely to be enough against the stars of Dortmund. Favre’s men showed how lethal they can be in their 2-0 win over Bayern and that pace and precision in attack is going to be too much to handle for Uerdingen.

There’s many ways you can look at this trying to get some value. My preferred route is the Asian handicap and back Dortmund to win by giving their opponents a three goal head start. Should the visitors win by a three goal margin exactly stakes are returned. Any greater margin of victory and the bet is settled as a winner.
