Borussia Dortmund are close to conceding the league title even if they win this weekend. However, that is unlikely to prevent the team from shaking off a poor run of form. Dusseldorf are not great on the road. Crucially, Dortmund will be pumped up in order to end this poor form and profit from any dropped points when Bayern Munich take on third-placed RB Leipzig. Our preview would opt for a Dortmund victory.

First Goalscorer odds
Paco Alcácer came up with his 18th goal of the campaign in the draw with Werder Bremen. He has now scored in his first start since coming back from an injury. Even though the likes of Marco Reus and Sancho have been able to carry the team, the importance of the Spaniard is undisputed. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Paco Alcacer.
