Hi everyone! Bayern Munich face a tricky trip to Leverkusen, while Dortmund host in-form Hertha. And can RB Leipzig end their winless run at home? Here are my tips for the Bundesliga this weekend. Bet here.
Bayer Leverkusen v Bayern Munich – Bundesliga
Bayer Leverkusen have been impressive since the Bundesliga returned. They’ve won three of their four games but remain fifth. Bayern Munich have gone one better, winning all four games to leave themselves seven points clear of Dortmund. They’ve now won 11 of their 12 league games in 2020 and have scored in every away game in the Bundesliga this season. Meanwhile, Leverkusen have scored in all of their 12 league games in 2020. I think Both Teams to Score combined with Over 2.5 Goals is a good bet – it’s happened in their last five meetings with Bayern Munich.
My prediction: Bayer Leverkusen 1 v 3 Bayern Munich – Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals (1.55)
Dortmund v Hertha – Bundesliga
The league title is all but gone for Dortmund, but they have got to be careful. They could still slip out of the top four, especially given their remaining fixtures. Besides Bayern Munich, Hertha have been the in-form team since the season resumed. They’ve taken 10 points from four games and drew 2-2 at RB Leipzig in their last away game. Dortmund have won three of their last four games and, after their 6-1 victory over Paderborn, I expect them to get three points here.
My prediction: Borussia Dortmund 2 v 1 Hertha – Both Teams to Score (1.55)
RB Leipzig v Paderborn – Bundesliga
Leipzig haven’t actually managed to win either of their home games since the season resumed. Nonetheless, they have scored 11 goals in four games and are third in the standings. In contrast, Paderborn are bottom and doomed to life in the Bundesliga 2 next season. They lost 6-1 to Dortmund in their last game and have only scored two goals since the restart.
My prediction: RB Leipzig 2 v 0 Paderborn – RB Leipzig Win with 0:1 Handicap (1.40)
Werder Bremen v Wolfsburg – Bundesliga
Defeat in midweek to Frankfurt has left Bremen two points adrift of safety with five games to play. They’ve only scored three goals in their last five games. Worse still, they have failed to win any of their last 12 home league games and have only found the net five times in that run. In short, I’m worried for them. Wolfsburg are sixth but cannot reach the top four. They’re in good form away from home and I think they will win this one.
My prediction: Werder Bremen 0 v 1 Wolfsburg – Double Chance Wolfsburg (1.30)
Union Berlin v Schalke – Bundesliga
Both of these sides are struggling for goals and I’m not sure that this will be a thrilling game. Union have only gained one point since the restart and have scored twice in that time. That’s better than Schalke, though. The visitors have lost all four of their games, scoring just once. Victory for either side would leave them clear of the relegation zone, but another defeat for Union could be costly.
My prediction: Union Berlin 1 v 1 Schalke – Under 2.5 Goals (1.70)
