Some of the heavyweights of European football take to the stage on Thursday night as we see 2012 Champions League runners up Borussia Dortmund start their Europa League campaign when they travel to Austria to take on Wolfsberger. Borussia Dortmund lost coach Jurgen Klopp at the end of last season but they held on to sought after players like Reus and Hummels and have a very strong squad at the moment before the start of the Bundesliga campaign. Marco Reus is one of the most talked about strikers in football at the moment with everyone from Manchester United to Real Madrid being linked with the German superstar, but Reus has committed himself to Borussia and wants to win where he is. It's admirable in this day and age to see a player committed to a club but if Borussia struggle again this season it will be interesting to see if he can continue here.
Wolfsberger come into this game off the back of a loss to austria rien. This is a tough match up for the Austrian side as shown by their current price of 12/1. Silvio, Hellquist will lead the line for Wolfsberger and Hellquist netted in the last round and will be key for the home side if they are to pull off one of the biggest shocks in football.
This one should be one way traffic with Borussia just far too strong for their Austrian counterparts. I think that there is no value taking Borussia though at 1/5 the price is just not condusive to smart betting. Instead i've looked at the corners market and taking Borussia to get 6 or more corners at evens seems a smart move. Borussia play a game based on pace down the wings and up front and it lends itself to producing alot of corners against weaker opposition. I've taking the overs for Borussia on the corners here.
