Dortmund To Dominate
Werder Bremen vs Borussia Dortmund – Dortmund begin the weekend in third, fuelled by their very own free-scoring forward line.
Erling Haaland made it eight Bundesliga goals in five games with his strike in the 4-0 drubbing of Eintracht Frankfurt, while Jadon Sancho became the first player since Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (2017) to score in six successive home league games.
Haaland was at it again midweek, grabbing a match-winning brace in BVB’s UEFA Champions League last-16 first leg against French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.
A Bremen team occupying the relegation play-off spot should be easy pickings for Lucien Favre’s men, but the Green-Whites have a habit of upsetting Dortmund.
The evergreen Claudio Pizarro dealt the Black-Yellows’ title hopes a serious blow late last season in a topsy-turvy 2-2 draw at the Weser-Stadion, and it’s only a couple of weeks since they dumped Dortmund out of the DFB Cup in the round of 16.
