When is the match, and kick off time?

The match is on Sunday 29th April 2018, and kicks off at 5:00pm UK time.


If Dortmund continue their solid defensive performance, they should be able to stop a lot of chances as they develop for their opponents. Set pieces should be interesting in this game, as Bremen's strong attacking may be countered by Dortmund's strong defence. Bremen will need to be creative with their attacking chances, as Dortmund are good at defending attacking through balls. Dortmund should be able to continue their recent form, which has seen them give away very few chances in errors. Bremen will hope that Dortmund attack wide so they can prevent danger with their superior defence on the wings.

Bremen Vs Dortmund Prediction

Dortmund are the better team on paper, and will be looking to dominate the game. This should result in a win for Dortmund. Don’t rule out Bremen though, as they will be keen to upset the travelling supporters. A bet of £10 would return £39.58 for a home win, £42.42 for a draw, and £20.43 for an away win.

This is set to be an eventful match in which we are expecting Dortmund to create more chances than Bremen. Both teams will be looking for the win but Dortmund have the stronger attack. We are expecting them to edge a victory in this match with both teams to score. Our prediction for this match is: Bremen 1-2 Dortmund.
