Fresh from a 1-1 Draw Away to Wolfsburg, Dortmund Look to Return to Winning Ways

Dortmund are having a subpar season in the Bundesliga going by their usual standards. Their inconsistency has compounded football bet predictions in the lead-up to their trip to the Philips Stadion to go one-on-one against PSV on Tuesday.

However, Dortmund are unbeaten in the last five, winning three times and drawing twice. They have steadied their form to retain their top four berth. However, football predictions analysis shows that they need to bolster their consistency to retain their position inside the Bundesliga top four.
