Borussia Dortmund vs Arminia Bielefeld
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 27 February 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Signal Iduna Park.
Der BVB used to be the best team in Germany after the indomitable Bavarians. However, as of now they are finding it hard to find a place in the top-four.
At present, they are placed sixth in the table, and need a surplus of six points to qualify for the Champions League the next season.
With the likes of young talent they possess, it’s important that the team makes it to the premier competition of the continent, or else these studs might be tempted to offer their services for some of the titans in European football.
This weekend, Edin Terzic’s men have the opportunity to secure a confidence-boosting win, as they are at home, and are pitted against one of the worst teams in the whole German top flight.
In fact, Die Arminen were promoted to the Bundesliga just at the end of the last season, and currently they are placed in the relegation zone. They have also scored the second-fewest number of goals in the contest.
Moreover, they have an inferior h2h record against this rival as well.
Likely, expect Borussia Dortmund to deliver a winning performance this Saturday at the Signal Iduna Park.
Borussia Dortmund vs Arminia Bielefeld: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Terzic’s men are on a three-match winning run, and had recorded a combined scorecard of 10-0, in the process.
- It’s been 14 years since they have lost against this opponent.
- At this venue, the hosts are on an unbeaten run since 2000.
- The combined scorecard for the last two clashes at this stadium is 12-1, in favor of the home team.
Borussia Dortmund vs Arminia Bielefeld Prediction
Der BVB recorded a 0-4 win on the road the last match-day, against Schalke. In the meantime, Uwe Neuhaus’s men lost 0-3 at home the past game week, against Wolfsburg.
Going on, Terzic’s men were unbeaten in 19 of their former 26 overall fixtures, and they had scored two or more goals in six of their last seven overall matches.
At home, they are on an unbeaten run since December of 2020, and have not once failed to score here since June of 2020.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a four-game winless run, and three of these were losses. They have also won just once on the road since May of 2020, and this sole victory had come against the dead-last placed Schalke.
On top of that, Der BVB also have a phenomenal h2h record against this foe over the years.
As such, expect Dortmund to deliver a convincing win this Saturday.
