In-form Dortmund ready to extend their winning streak

<div><h2>Union Berlin vs Dortmund</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/de/bundesliga/1-fc-union-berlin-vs-borussia-dortmund-3838324/?mtid=1" rel="nofollow"><strong>Saturday, August 31st, at Stadion An der Alten Försterei (Berlin)</strong></a></p><p>Dortmund are leading the standings with maximum points after 2 matches and 8 goals scored in the process. In both matches they came back from 1 goal down to beat Augsburg and FC Koln. The visitors enter this match full of confidence and on the back of a 5-match unbeaten run on the road scoring 13 goals in the process and conceding just 3. On the other side, Union Berlin earned just 1 point in their 1st two Bundesliga matches conceding 5 goals in the process. Dortmund have a brilliant attacking firepower being one of the most exciting teams to watch not only in the German top-flight league but also in the European top 5 leagues. Marco Reus, Jadon Sancho, Paco Alcacer, Julian Brandt or Thorgan Hazard are world class players and if they will stay fit during the entire season, they might have great chances to win the title and end Bayern’s Bundesliga domination.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Unfortunately for BVB’s fans Thorgan Hazard picked up a knock against FC Koln last weekend and he might be ruled out for this clash, but Dortmund’s coach is not worried because he possesses a strong bench and German International Julian Brandt is the perfect replacement for Hazard. On the other side, Union Berlin’s centre-back Nenad Subotic, who played 196 Bundesliga matches for Dortmund will try to stop his former teammates from finding the back of the net. Union Berlin’s Defender defender Keven Schlotterbeck was red carded in the 1-1 draw against Augsburg with Marvin Friedrich ready to return in the starting XI and partner Nenad Subotic.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&amp;a=0d6ed5cd-99a2-41c2-abf3-f12f9f951422&amp;f=2" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d580afa408d53fc8c579955/original-bet-365-early-payout" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Given the amazing form that they are on at the moment, Dortmund should have no problem in return home with the three points and maintain their lead at the top of the table. Union Berlin will have to come up with something special to pull off the upset and win this match or at least keep Dortmund to a draw. Dortmund are priced at 1.3 with Unibet while the hosts are priced at 9.0 with the same bookie. Paco Alcacer and Jadon Sancho are the Dortmund top scorers this season with 3 and 2 goals netted respectively and they are priced at 1.83 and 2.8 respectively with Betfair to be anytime goalscorers. Dortmund should have the necessary weapons to score 3 goals on their own so one of the bets we are looking at is Dortmund to win and over 2.5 goals in the match which is priced at 1.75 with Coral. But for our top tip for the match we are going for the -1.5 Asian Handicap line.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bundesliga Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Dortmund to win with -1.5 AH at 1.88 with Bet365.</strong></em></a></p></div>
