Borussia Dortmund vs Greuther FurthGerman Bundesliga, KO: 19:30 Dec 15, 2021, Signal Iduna Park
Borussia Dortmund will be keen to get their campaign back on track after failing to win their last two German Bundesliga matches. They face bottom side Greuther Furth on Wednesday and will be confident of claiming a comfortable victory.
Borussia Dortmund were held to a 1-1 draw by Bochum in their previous Bundesliga fixture. They struggled to break down the stubborn hosts and needed an equaliser from Julian Brandt five minutes from time after going behind in the first half.
That result means Dortmund are winless in their last two Bundesliga matches having been beaten 3-2 by Bayern Munich in their previous fixture. Marco Rose’s men remain second but need to improve their recent performances to fend off the chasing pack.
The good news for Dortmund is they are returning to the Signal Iduna Park, which has been a fortress this season. They have won seven of their eight home matches this term with a number of comfortable victories in that run, including a 5-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.
Greuther Furth are coming off a rare win as they claimed a 1-0 victory over Union Berlin in their previous Bundesliga fixture. Havard Nielsen’s second half effort proved to be the difference as they held on for the win.
That was the first win of the season for Greuther Furth, who have found things difficult since making the step up from Bundesliga 2. The result did little to improve their league position as Stefan Leitl’s men remain rooted to the bottom of the table, 13 points from safety.
Greuther Furth have been one of the worst teams in the Bundesliga this season with 13 defeats from their 15 matches so far. They also have the worst defence in the league and were beaten 7-1 by Bayer Leverkusen in their previous away fixture.
