Borussia Dortmund vs Union Berlin
Date: Wednesday, 21 April 2021
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Signal-Iduna-Park, Dortmund.
Borussia Dortmund will be looking to extend the fine attacking form and clinch the third consecutive domestic victory on Wednesday evening when they welcome top-half rivals Union Berlin at Signal-Iduna-Park. BVB returned to the battle for the top-four finish after bagging seven goals in back-to-back league wins over Stuttgart and Werder Bremen. Erling Haaland finally produced a strong display on Saturday as his two goals inspired BVB’s 4-1 comeback win over Bremen.
Union Berlin made it three straight league matches without a defeat at the weekend as they saw off Stuttgart 2-1 on the home patch. Urs Fischer’s men are now 8th in the league standings, sitting just four points short of the sixth-placed Bayer Leverkusen and the position that leads to UEFA Europa League next season.
Borussia Dortmund vs Union Berlin Head-to-head

Borussia Dortmund vs Union Berlin Prediction
Both sides have scored and conceded goals with ease of late. The Both Teams To Score option landed in each of the last five of Union Berlin’s games, while the same scenario has happened in each of the last six outings Borussia Dortmund played across competitions. As mentioned above, the team led by interim manager Edin Terzic notched as many as seven goals in the last two league victories.
Since Dortmund can’t afford a slip-up here if they want to keep touch with Eintracht Frankfurt who are four points away in fourth place, we can hardly see them dropping the ball here. Based on everything written above, including the head to head tradition, the Home Win & Both Teams To Score seems to be just the way to go here. You can back this scenario at the odds of 3.00. Over 2.5 goals FT is a banker bet at the 1.57 odds
