The Europa League qualifying round will see Borussia Dortund take a slender 1-0 lead back to Signul Iduna Park against Austrian side Wolfsberger. Borussia Dortmund had a good preseason and kept most of their squad from last season including star men Marco Reus and Matt Hummels it was expected they would start the season strong under new manager Thomas Tuchel but they struggled at times last week and looked out of sorts. I think this is a game that Borussia will win well but at 1/10 there is no value here, the handicap market is not much better with the goal line set at 3, that is the type of line that is hard to cover especially against a side that is decent defensively, as Wolfsberger are.
Wolfsberger to be fair to them played really well last week and were a little unlucky not to score at least one goal, they did concede alot of possession though and were guilty of alot of fouling. At the same time they had three decent chances but failed to convert any of them. Silvio will be the key man upfront but the Brazilian striker looks a little laboured at the moment and hasnt score double figure in a season since 2009/2010. This is a big ask for him to step up against Hummels and a top class Borussia defence.
Having looked at the markets and scouring them for value I am going to take under 3.5 goals at 11/10. Not one that I will be investing heavily in but I think that Dortmund will be happy with 2 or 3 nil and I cant see them running up the score here. This is again a min bet because of the lack of value in the markets.
