The Round 2 of the Klopp vs Dortmund duel will take place this Thursday in Anfield Road! Which team should we back with our soccer picks?

Klopp returned to his old Stadium on the 1st leg and brought a very positive result but far from fair for the German team. Dortmund was the better team overall and should have ended the 1st leg with a much better result. 

With the 1-1 result in Westfalenstadion, there are two prohibitive results for Dortmund in England, the 0-0 and a defeat. 

Liverpool vs. Borussia
We believe that Jurgen Klopp should approach this game with the same strategy, not taking many risks and trying to take advantage of quick transitions to surprise the Germans.

Both teams spared many players on the last weekend, which shows how much they care about this match and how important are the next 90 minutes for the success of their seasons. Borussia’s chances of fighting for the title are quite low while Liverpool is also far from achieving a European spot on Premier League.

Betting Overview
We took the German side on the 1st leg, expecting both teams to score on that match. This should be an electrifying game with both teams’ fans singing even higher their anthem, You will never walk alone. We think that Dortmund should once again be the better team on pitch and despite their inability to win the 1st leg, Borussia shouldn’t leave Liverpool with a defeat.

Therefore, we believe that the highest value is on the line Draw No Bet, or Asian Handicap 0 close to 1.82 on 12bet. The soccer odds on that line already dropped but it’s still possible to find value on this bet and we’ll pick it as our bet for this game.

Looking now to the goals market, the sportsbooks expect a high scoring affair with the Over 2.5 offered below evens and in reality, we thinking that the 1-2 is a very likely final result. Yet, the price on that bet is not enough for us to get involved since Liverpool should approach this Europa League game with extreme cautious and a 0-2 result for Dortmund will probably set this tie to an end.

The same thing happens with the Both Teams To Score, with the price offered being too low for us to find value but it’s also impossible for us to go on the BTTS – No, in a game where both teams have a huge potential on the attack with several goals occurring on their previous domestic game.

Regarding the goal scorers market, Abumeayang is the player to have in mind and with 888sport offering him to score at any time @+210, we have to pull the trigger on that bet.

The Qualify market pays currently @-122  for Borussia Dortmund, which is a fair price in our opinion since the 1-1 result requires an extra time and because of that, we prefer our DNB option but in case you want to make a slip with your soccer picks this is a good option too and you’ll have your bet open during the extra-time.
