FC Luzern began their pre-season campaign against Kriens with a slim 3-2 win last week. Next on their agenda is to face their domestic rivals FC Lausanne Sport tomorrow. Three days later, they will host Borussia Dortmund at their Swissporarena, and that game is the focus of this betting tip.
Unlike them, their German guests’ preparations for the new season are in full swing. Up till now, they have played three warm-up games, the last one taking place earlier today. They won all three of those encounters, beating Magdeburg in the first one 3-0, then inflicting a 3-1 defeat over FC Basel two days later before making mincemeat of Turkish side Bursaspor at home. They have won all three of those games with extreme ease, and Luzern might already be counting how many they will concede when the two teams square off this Tuesday.
Despite losing a superstar like Mario Gotze this summer, Dortmund seem to be in good shape thanks to their intelligent recruitment. Arrival of quality performers like Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have given them a much needed boost, and they sure seem to be the same kind of beast that stormed to the final of last season’s Champions League competition.
Luzern and Dortmund’s last meeting was in a friendly tournament back in 2008. The Swiss minnows managed a 2-2 draw back then but don’t expect a repeat of any such results this time around. The recommended bet for this game is to back Borussia Dortmund -1 goal with Bet3000 at odds of 1.65.
