Borussia Dortmund v Borussia Moenchengladbach - Bundesliga

Mainz 05 vs. SC Freiburg

 

Match Date: 22 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Coface Arena

 

Mainz 05

One of the strongest reasons why Mainz remains a sports betting favorite over SC Freiburg is its consistency in collecting points.

 

Indeed, it is true that the club has only won once in its last six (6) matches, but majority of it ended in an even steven finish. It could’ve been better if they were able to snatch more wins, but the stalemates have kept them alive, safe and away from the relegation table. Moreover, they’re still in the top 10. As a matter of fact, its scoreless stalemate against Bayer did not hurt their ambitions at all. They’re still in a strong position to secure a strong finish at the end of the season.

 

SC Freiburg

Freiburg’s morale boosting win against Schalke will be instrumental in their quest for their 3rd consecutive win. The squad took advantage of their crowd to ensure that they get the upper-hand in the said encounter.

Freiburg netted two (2) goals and kept a clean sheet against the Royal Blues.

 

Prediction

Mainz 05 1-1 SC Freiburg

 

 

 

***

Paderborn vs. Borussia Dortmund

 

Match Date: 22 November 2014 (local time)

Venue: Benteler Arena

 

Paderborn

Paderborn will try to leave the nightmare that it has against Augsburg to capitalize on their core strength and hopefully, beat a struggling Borussia Dortmund.

 

Despite being new in the league, Paderborn continues to show grit and ruthlessness. The truth is that it currently occupies the 10th spot of the league table and is very much capable of making life difficult for Dortmund.

 

Borussia Dortmund

Thanks to Kramer’s own goal, Dortmund is already out of the relegation zone. The win may sound too amusing, but certainly, this is far from being impressive considering the depth of Dortmund’s squad.

 

Dortmund can be easily dismissed as the favorite in the match, yet, its lackluster performances in the past do not guarantee that they’ll dominate the upcoming match.

 

Ending in a draw is highly possible in this particular game.

 

Prediction

Paderborn 1-1 Borussia Dortmund
