Betting Tips for the game
Borussia Dortmund still have to wait for their first league win on the road after managing a 1-1 draw with Hoffenheim in the recent encounter. Dortmund have a 50% win record so far this season.
Nuremberg were able to pick up the first win of the campaign after beating Hannover 2-0 at home. It was an impressive performance from Michael Köllner’s men, who had scored through Waldemar Anton and Tim Knoll. Nuremberg profited from Hannover’s early red card.
The last game between Dortmund and Nuremberg also took place at the Signal Iduna Park back in 2014. Dortmund were able to get a comprehensive 3-0 victory. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Dortmund.

Nuremberg are at prices of 10.00 to win the match. Even at such spectacular prices, we would not think about backing the visitors. Dortmund have a 100% record at Signal Iduna Park with the club’s dropped points coming only in away games. Nuremberg may have picked up a first win of the campaign but they were immensely assisted by the red card to Hannover. At home, Dortmund will be a strong force and our preview would back a win for the hosts.

Borussia Dortmund vs Nuremberg draw odds: 5.50
Nuremberg win odds: 10.00
Correct Score odds
Lucien Favre’s men have been extremely good at home this season. They have come up with seven out of the eight league goals at the Signal Iduna Park. Nuremberg have managed just one away goal this campaign and they may struggle to contain a Dortmund outfit that will be motivated by the noisy home supporters. Our correct score prediction would back a 3-1 win for Dortmund.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The matches at Signal Iduna Park have been rich in terms of entertainment as Dortmund have been able to win both games with an aggregate score of 7-2. They have now failed to keep a clean sheet at home in the last three games going back to last season. Nuremberg will be reasonably confident about their style of play that has yielded at least a goal in the last three matches. Our total goals prediction would pick a game with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Marco Reus has a poor record against Nuremberg after failing to score in all of the nine league meetings with the club. Even though he has contributed an assist in four of those games, this is a difficult market with none of the current Dortmund squad possessing a great record against Nuremberg. Hence, it is a better option would be to back Reus.
