Duisburg vs Dortmund Betting Odds and Predictions

Sovereign gallop for BVB?

⚽️ Game: Duisburg – Dortmund
⚽️ Competition: DFB Cup
🔻 Date: 14.09.2020
🔺 Betting Prediction: Dortmund wins to zero
🔻 Betting Odds: 1.8
🔺 Stake: 6/10 units

It would certainly have been one of the most emotional and most visited first-round games in the DFB Pokal 2020/21, but instead of over 30,000 fans, only 300 spectators will be present in the Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena on Monday evening when Duisburg receives Dortmund.

Of course, when you look at the odds of the best bookmakers, nothing has changed. But on the contrary. BVB is considered a huge favorite and it would have to be a real miracle if the zebras were able to prevail sensationally. The last time in round one the black and yellow failed by the way in 2005/2006, at that time at Eintracht Braunschweig.

The Duisburg, meanwhile, failed in four of the last seven participations at the opening hurdle. To make matters worse, from Meidericher SV, the team no longer has the quality of the past second division years and also has numerous players who have to act at this level for the first time in a competitive game.

The bottom line is, therefore, an absolute cream day for the underdog as well as a complete dropout of the Champions League participant, so that a prediction on the white-blue striped between Duisburg and Dortmund pays off. From a betting point of view, it is of crucial importance to how we can boost Borussia’s success accordingly to create attractive value. A “to zero” victory is just as possible as the handicap.

Duisburg – Statistics & current form

In the third division season that starts next weekend, MSV Duisburg can only be about finally returning to the second division. Despite a very good starting position for long periods, the zebras narrowly failed to achieve this goal last year and therefore have to compete with teams like Saarbrücken, Lübeck, or Zwickau for another season instead of playing against Hamburger SV, 1. FC Nürnberg or St. Pauli allowed to.

All the greater is the anticipation of the ambitious third division team before the highlight match in the DFB Pokal against Borussia Dortmund. Although those responsible around the experienced coach Torsten Lieberknecht do not have too much hope that the sensation can succeed, they are still in good spirits in the Ruhr area to make life as difficult as possible for BVB.

Duisburg lost 1: 5 against BVB three weeks ago

It needs a significant increase compared to the friendly game that the two teams played against each other on August 22nd as part of a preparatory tournament.

  • “For some, it would be a very big sensation, for the other team it would be something that shouldn’t be addressed at all. But we also want to win the game! ” – Torsten Lieberknecht

At that time the MSV had no chance and had to bend 1: 5, even though Borussia did not come up with the best team and instead rotated wildly.

The performances in the other test matches were quite impressive. Except for the 0: 4 against Gladbach, Meidericher SV always scored at least one goal. The bookmakers may be, therefore, offering relatively high odds on a “zero” success of the favorite between Duisburg and Dortmund. However, because we are not making the mistake of overestimating the results from the preparation, we are convinced that the third division will go without a goal on Monday evening in front of 300 spectators.

Probable formation of Duisburg:
➤ Weinkauf – Sauer, Gembalies, Volkmer, Bretschneider – Krempicki, Pepic – Stoppelkamp, Karweina, Engin – Vermeij

Dortmund – Statistics & current form

Can Lucien Favre afford another untitled season? According to the current status, we would answer this question with “no”. The expectation at the Westphalians is still huge, although those responsible are well aware that in all three competitions, in which the yellow-blacks figure something out, the superior power from Munich will also be represented.

Probably the easiest or most realistic chance of winning the title, BVB certainly has in the DFB Cup, which last went to Borussia in 2017. In general, the Dortmund team were in four of the last seven editions in the final but failed three times in the final. Also, there has been a bankruptcy in the last sixteen in the past three seasons. However, Favre did not show any nakedness against lower-class teams in recent years.

Dortmund surprisingly vulnerable in preparation

For this reason, we are far from giving a tip on the underdog between Duisburg and Dortmund. BVB simply has too much quality in its ranks that Meidericher SV usually cannot match. Nevertheless, at least some caution is required, because the reigning vice-champion afforded one or two unnecessary dropouts in preparation.

A 1: 3 defeat against VfL Bochum, a 1: 1 against Paderborn or bankruptcy against Feyenoord Rotterdam (1: 3) rounded off the less than 100% satisfactory conclusion of the Swiss coach. The defense in particular once again proved to be a problem child, whereby it must be stated that the yellow-blacks were hardly on the pitch with the team that we expect on Monday evening in the Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena. Because Sancho, Haaland, and Co. also want to and will switch to competition mode, we predict a victory for the favorite without conceding a goal.

Probable formation of Dortmund:
➤ Bürki – Piszczek, Hummels, Can – Meunier, Witsel, Guerreiro – Sancho, Reyna – Reus, Haaland

Duisburg vs Dortmund Direct comparison

We have already written about the test match between these two teams that took place three weeks ago and which Borussia won 5: 1. The last competitive game of the Ruhrpott rivals was well over ten years ago. In 2007/2008 they met in the Bundesliga. The zebras got four points from two games, including an away win at the Westfalenstadion, and were relegated to the second division at the end of the season.

Duisburg vs Dortmund Betting Odds and Predictions

Joy and disappointment can sometimes be very close together. The “Borussia Dortmund” lot would have caused real cheers and a sold-out house at MSV Duisburg in the past few decades. In times of the new normal, the sadness that instead of 30,000 spectators in the first round of the DFB Cup on Monday evening only 300 fans can attend the highlight game is understandable.

With a real home advantage between Duisburg and Dortmund, the odds on the favorites might have increased a bit and yet the starting position would have remained the same. BVB has all the trumps in their own hands and shouldn’t have any problems against the third division side, similar to the 5: 1 about three weeks ago in a test match in which Lucien Favre didn’t even bring up his best team.

Key facts – Duisburg vs Dortmund tips

🔺 Duisburg failed in four of the last seven participations in round one
🔺 In recent years, BVB has shown no nakedness against lower-class teams
🔺 On August 22nd, Dortmund won against the zebras in a friendly 5-1

Although Borussia revealed some defensive weaknesses in preparation and the zebras were able to meet in almost every match, we decide in the unequal duel Duisburg vs. Dortmund for the tip that BVB wins to zero. We primarily argue with the competitive game character, which will lead to more concentration and sovereignty among the black and yellow players.
