Borussia Dortmund Match Betting News

Borussia Dortmund made a very good impression under Thomas Tuchel last season and they certainly gave Bayern Munich a run for their money in the race for the Bundesliga title.

Over the summer, Dortmund have strengthened their squads with quality signings such as Andre Schurrle, Mario Gotze, Ousmane Dembele, Sebastian Rode, Raphael Guerreiro, Marc Bartra, Emre Mor and Mikel Merino, and Die Borussen now look very well equipped to challenge for the title during the upcoming campaign as well as also make an impression in the Champions League.

Dortmund have been very inconsistent throughout pre-season so far but Tuchel’s men proved their worth during a 4-1 drubbing of Manchester United a couple of weeks ago and the Germans will be looking for a similar result when they square off against another Premier League side in the form of Sunderland on Friday.

Sunderland Match Betting News

Sunderland lost the services of manager Sam Allardyce to the England national team this summer but the Black Cats have appointed a more than capable replacement in the form of David Moyes and many now believe that the Wearside based outfit should have no problems whatsoever in avoiding another relegation scrap during the upcoming season.

That being said, the Premier League remains a very competitive league and Moyes will most certainly have to strengthen the ranks at the Stadium of Light with a couple of signings in order to give his side a chance to enjoy a better campaign.

Sunderland have been spending pre-season in France and the Black Cats will now be looking to wrap things up in Austria when they square off against Borussia Dortmund on Friday and Moyes will surely be looking for a good performance from his side during the encounter.

Borussia Dortmund vs Sunderland Match Prediction

It is no secret that Moyes can trouble even the most talented sides despite possessing a weak squad and Sunderland should cause Dortmund problems on the night. However, Dortmund simply look too strong and should be able to claim the victory from the encounter.
