Leverkusen are steadfast at making their presence in the German top-tier football more known and felt. The current third placers have so far won thrice and lost only once in the past six meetings that they engaged in against other teams in Bundesliga. In their two most recent battles, they were able to render their opponent goalless, with one of these eventually resulting in a clean sheet. Paderborn, by comparison, suffer a certain degree on inconsistency which they have been addressing since returning to the first division. Thus far, they have already won twice in the past six weeks, but have also been beaten and held in a draw twice (each) in that same period. They currently rank in the mid-table.

 

Sports betting tip: Bayer Leverkusen will remain unbeaten with a fourth league win against Paderborn.

Borussia Dortmund vs. Hamburger SV

Match Date: 04 October 2014 (local)

Match Venue: Signal Iduna Park

 

The previous season’s runners up, Dortmund are looking very much pressured to keep their form healthy—a mission that has taken a toll on their current campaign for the Bundesliga title. The side have won in two previous matches but were also brought down to their knees three times which hindered them from going past the 10th spot of the table as of the league’s sixth week of battles. Hamburg, by comparison, are doing much worse. They are currently marooned at the rankings’ foot after failing to win in any of their previous fixtures. They also posted the worst goal difference of season, so far. In fact, only one player—Nicolai Muller—from the team has been able to find the net, which he did once in his side’s tourney versus Frankfurt 1-2.

 

Online betting tip: Dortmund will steal all the points from Hamburg.
