Hamburger hosts Borussia Dortmund at the Volksparkstadion this Wednesday.
One of the most traditional teams in Germany, Hamburger have narrowly escaped the first relegation of the club’s history last season.
The team is at least looking for a more peaceful campaign on the Bundesliga this season. Their start was very good with wins over Augsburg and Koln. But it stopped there.
The team is now coming off two losses in the competition, against Leipzig and Hannover. The team stopped at 6 points so they now sit in 8th place. To make matters worse, the team has some problems, since they won’t be able to count with Hunt, Muller, Thoelke and Van Drongelen.

Hamburger vs Borussia Dortmund – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Dortmund gives the impression that they will be the big Bayern’s opponent in the fight for the Bundesliga title, if that is even possible.
Last season, the team was very inconsistent and they didn’t offer much resistance but this season, they had a more exciting start. The team is currently sitting at the top of the Bundesliga, with 10 points gained so far.
Obviously, their advantage is small, but it is enough to keep them in 1st place. They have 3 wins and 1 draw, scoring 10 goals and not conceding any in the process.
The team also has some important absences for this encounter with Guerreiro, Reus, Rode and Schmelzer being out. Besides that, Bartra, Durm and Schurrle are still doubtful.
Although they haven’t conceded in the league yet, I believe that might happen here. Hamburger is always a very attacking team at home and they need this win in order to bounce back from their poor momentum.
Dortmund has some absences and that can help the hosts on their mission of scoring.
