28-04-23 Daily Football Predictions: Dortmund Look to keep top spot with win

Betting Tips

In the first match of round 30, Bochum and Borussia Dortmund meet at Vonovia Ruhrstadion. The Yellow-Blacks have reclaimed first place, and they are undoubtedly buoyed by their 4-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.

Bochum, on the other side, had numerous defensive issues in a 5-1 loss to Wolfsburg.

On Friday, Strasbourg will host Lyon at the Stade de la Meinau in Ligue 1. Strasbourg and Olympique Lyon square off at Stade de la Meinau in the round 33 openers.

Le Racing hopes to improve on their recent victories over Ajaccio and Reims. Les Gones, on the other hand, are looking to bounce back after a 2-1 loss to Olympique Marseille.

Bochum vs Borussia Dortmund

Dortmund, who are currently top of the Bundesliga, meet Bochum at the Vonovia Ruhrstadion on Friday night. Following Bayern’s unexpected setback at Mainz last weekend, Dortmund would capitalize with a rollicking 4:0 win against Eintracht, propelling them to the top of the Bundesliga with a one-point lead over their main rivals with only five games remaining.

Bochum, who are just two points above the relegation play-off spot after a 5:1 thrashing by Wolfsburg, also have a lot to contend for.

Bochum has lost their previous four Bundesliga games, putting them just two points above the relegation zone heading into the weekend! They have nine points fewer than they did at this point last season and will be anxious to make a difference here against title-chasing Dortmund.

The hosts have also lost four of their last five home games and have never beaten their local rivals at this stadium in 15 years of H2H competition.

Verdict

Dortmund reinforced their reputation as serious title contenders over the weekend, scoring four goals without reply against Eintracht Frankfurt. With Bayern losing at Mainz, BVB’s latest triumph moved them to the top of the Bundesliga table, and they can enhance their position with a win at relegation-threatened Bochum on Friday. The hosts were thrashed 5-1 at home by Wolfsburg last time out, and our first Bochum vs Borussia Dortmund prediction predicts a repeat.

Bochum’s recent home form has been far from remarkable after a five-match winning streak earlier this season. Thomas Letsch’s squad has lost four of their past five games and conceded twelve goals in those four defeats. They now face title-chasing Dortmund and appear unlikely to overcome their recent dismal form.

Strasbourg vs Lyon

Strasbourg will attempt to keep their league survival hopes alive when they face Olympique Lyon on Friday night.

Le Racing enters Friday’s game full of confidence, having won their previous two league games by a combined score of 5-1. The reward is a position outside the red zone, but only because of their superior goal difference over Nantes and Brest, which means a loss here might reverse the good work they have put in over the last two games. Away fans, on the other hand, will be sure that Strasbourg can take three points here since their team has won three of the last four games at this venue. 

Meanwhile, Lyon comes into this game after a setback to Marseille last weekend, which broke their three-game winning streak. Laurent Blanc’s side is still six points off the final European position as a result of last weekend’s setback, implying that anything less than a win today would be a significant disappointment.

Even though Lyon would like to get back on track this week, their record in recent encounters with Strasbourg has been less than stellar. They managed to get only one point from the last two meetings between these two sides in Ligue 1.

Verdict

Strasbourg has only one point to spare against the top relegation rivals, but for this Strasbourg vs Lyon prediction, we are going with a draw because both teams have crucial goals and will approach the match cautiously. Strasbourg has eleven draw games this season, but none in the last five, while Lyon has eight split games, but just one in the previous five. There was also only one tie between these teams in their last five meetings, which occurred last season at this time of year, and Strasbourg was also the host.

According to the Strasbourg versus Lyon head-to-head record, both teams scored at least one goal in four of the last five meetings. The games when Strasbourg was the home team, which is also the case this time, are even more outstanding in that sense.

BTTS passed with flying colors in the last seven matches in such a situation. The essential component of this bet is that both of these clubs have elite attackers available, Habib Diallo for the hosts and Alexandre Lacazette for Lyon.

Tip: BTTS (YES) / Draw
