Meanwhile Hertha have three wins and a draw while outscoring opponents 11-2. Let’s take a look at this Hertha Berlin Vs Dortmund match and their Bundesliga odds.

Borussia Dortmund Betting Preview: Full Steam Ahead

Dortmund looked a little sluggish on the road Sunday with teenager Erling Braut Haaland and midfielder Mo Dahoud sidelined with knee injuries.  The Black & Yellows woke up in the second half though and scored six times in 36 minutes for a 6-1 win over last place Paderborn. Sancho impressively scored his first Bundesliga hat trick while Hazard, Achraf Hakimi and Marcel Schmelzer all added goals.

BVB have allowed just one home goal in Bundesliga play since January 24 and the Bayern loss May 24 was their first loss at Signal Iduna this season. Haaland could be back for this contest and he has 13 goals in 14 games since joining Dortmund in January. Sancho leads BVB with 20 goals in all competitions this season while keeper Roman Burki has 10 clean sheets in 26 starts.
