Raphael Honigstein's Bundesliga Betting: Dost To Strike Again For Wolfsburg


Hamburg SV-Borussia Mönchengladbach - 2.30pm kick off

For the first time since their heaviest defeat in Bundesliga history  (0-8 to Bayern last Saturday), Hamburg take to the pitch on Sunday to play against another member of the top three, Gladbach. 

They were beaten, albeit far more respectably in their Europa League game in Seville on Thursday but they haven't won any of their eight games following European encounters this season. The man who scored Gladbach's derby winner last weekend, Granit Xhaka, is out through a yellow card suspension but with Hamburg confidence likely to be low, the visitors may still have enough for a win here at 2.30

After an immediate impact against Mainz in his first game in charge, Pal Dardai's Hertha lapsed back into their losing habit against fellow strugglers Freiburg last week. Going to Wolfsburg next isn't the game you want after such a defeat either.

The Wolves are playing well with striker Bas Dost in excellent form. Having struggled to shine in his time at the club, the Dutch striker has started 2015 with nine goals in five games. The latest two of those came in a Europa League win over Sporting on Thursday after he hit four last Saturday against Leverkusen. The most rewarding option here then looks to be backing Dost to score first again at 4.40.
