Borussia Dortmund Preview
Dortmund already showed in previous stages that they are extremely focused in winning this competition. Since their relegation from UCL they were considered the favorites and we agree with the sportsbooks analysis. It seems unlikely that Dortmund manages to recover the gap to Bayern Munich on Bundesliga, which means that this Europa League can work as a salvation for their season.

The German team is very experienced on European competitions, hardly conceding goals and attacking with much more caution. They played like that against Porto and Tottenham and they will try to do the same here against Liverpool but for this match two important defenders can’t play, Subotic and Sokratis. Besides this, Klopp knows very well this Dortmund team.

Dortmund’s potential on the attack is huge with Aubameyang in amazing shape, Reus and Mkhitaryan. Besides this, Schmelzer is a very important player on this team’s offensive momentum with his dangerous crosses and we believe the English team won’t have an easy task here.

 

Liverpool FC Analysis
Liverpool is way below their initial expectations for this season although they seem to be currently on the best shape of the entire season. The Premier League is long gone for them and because of that they’ll invest everything on this Europa League, starting with this trip to Germany.

Klopp’s team played five games on the road this season on Europa League, scoring just three goals and ending four of those matches with a draw. The Reds goal for this match is to achieve a draw with goals or in worst case scenario a defeat by small margin with goals scored, which allows them to have a chance to solve this tie at home.

 

Betting Overview 
Looking at the winners market, Dortmund value is not very high in the soccer odds boards, but at home they have all the edge to defeat this Liverpool. Even though Klopp knows the Dortmund team and this might be a special match for the Germans, the straight win or Asian Handicap -1 for Dortmund are good options to approach this game.

On the goals market, the Over at -125 Pinnacle is far from presenting value, even though this is a first leg and Dortmund defense might have some problems like they had against Werder Bremen at the weekend.

Liverpool counts with very dangerous players like Sturridge and Coutinho, both can make damage to any defense with their quick transitions. Other quality value on Liverpool’s attack is Firmino, who returns from injury to this match. Klopp won’t approach this game with a defensive strategy because they know that a goal on the road is always very important and they have the quality to do it.

We’re going to pull the trigger on two lines for this match as our soccer picks, splitting our stake with Dortmund AH -1.00 and also the combination Dortmund to Win & Both Teams to Score at +230  Bwin since a 2-1 or 3-1 final result are our expectations. If Liverpool fails to score, our handicap should be covered with a 2-0 result and we leave this match even.
