With their former boss at the helm, it may be a strange experience for the Dortmund players, not the mention the fans. Although their new boss, Thomas Tuchel, has added his own special touch, Klopp still knows the players inside out. On the other hand, while Liverpool’s pressing system may take some in the Premiership by surprise, the Dortmund players will know exactly how to handle it.
Looking at the Borussia Dortmund v Liverpool odds, it seems that the best bets are in the goals markets. Both teams are very attacking, and there’s a load of great finishers on display. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is flying this season with 23 goals in the Bundesliga, while Marco Reus is always a threat too. For Liverpool, Daniel Sturridge often performs on the big occasion, so he’s also a good bet to score first.
It’s set to be a thrilling match, and Liverpool will be desperate to grab at least one crucial away goal. And if you bet on sports in Germany, you’ll know that Dortmund are actually top scorers in the Bundesliga. Our best bet is to wager on the total goals scored: we reckon there will be at least 4.
