Arminia Bielefeld vs. Leverkusen
Saturday, November 21, 2020 – 09:30 AM EST at Schüco Arena
Two Banker Parlays in a row after the international break? Yes… it’s time to maximize our profit and this week is a perfect opportunity to do that. Always remember the bankroll management, 1 or 2 units, never more than that. We already have a good sample size for this season, so our 50+ goal is more than achievable.
Let’s get back to work. With 15 points earned in 7 games, Leverkusen are sitting 4th in the standings. Despite them starting their 2020/21 domestic campaign with 3 draws, we knew that it’s a matter of time till they will start to score more and win matches. The quality was and is there, they just needed some time to transform their golden opportunities into goals.
They enter this game on the back of a superb 4-3 win against Gladbach (the same team who’s leading the Champions League group, destroying Shakhtar 6-0 and keeping both Inter and Real Madrid to 2-2 draws). Leverkusen’s attacking firepower is huge. Lucas Alario scored 7 goals in 7 games and he was given just 8 minutes in the international break by Argentina’s coach Lionel Scaloni. Let’s face it, 8 minutes for Alario is huge as Argentina’s attack is fully packed with superstars like Leo Messi, Lautaro Martinez, or Lucas Ocampos.
Leverkusen are destroying their opponents with an aggressive high pressing, they have fast players, their passing skills and they are deadly on the break. After a hesitant start, they started to score many goals and their confidence is at high levels. We expect them to extend their great run of form with another win.
Hertha Berlin vs. Dortmund
Saturday, November 21, 2020 - 02:30 PM EST at Olympiastadion
Hertha Berlin won 3-0 away at Augsburg which is amazing for a team with 7 points in 7 games (including the 3 points won against Hertha). Last week on the show I was saying how disappointed I am with Dodi Lukébakio and Krzysztof Piatek, and they both scored in the 3-0 win. This week I won’t mention them.
This season, Hertha’s games produced many goals, they netted 13 but they also conceded 13 in 7 fixtures. They are winless on their turf scoring just 2 goals in 3 games. They also lost their previous 2 home head-to-head against Dortmund conceding at least 2 goals in each game.
On the other side, we have Dortmund, who must return to winning ways after losing the clash against Bayern Munich despite scoring 2 goals in the match. They are sitting 3rd trailing leaders Bayern Munich by 3 points and 2nd-placed RB Leipzig by 1. We can talk about their power for the next 2 days but it’s very important to note that they kept 7 cleans sheets in 10 games this season (Bundesliga and Champions League), which is a brilliant performance by Dortmund. They improved significantly at the back.
Another important news for Dortmund and for their fans is that their start striker Erling Haaland is fresh and fully fit. Norway's Nations League game away to Romania on Sunday has been canceled following the quarantining of the Norwegian team by the nation's health authorities due to a positive COVID-19 test. Haaland is back in Germany and ready to use his killer instinct against Hertha on Saturday.
