The Bundesliga is back in full swing and about to enjoy the second week of football since its return. The rivalries between the top teams in Germany have resumed, with Week 27 featuring incredible match-ups all round. With plenty of exciting action ahead, we’ve got you covered for Bundesliga betting.
With the top three teams facing difficult competition over the weekend, the Bundesliga table could be set for a reshuffle. First-place Bayern Munich welcome Eintracht Frankfurt to the Allianz Arena, Borussia Dortmund travel east to Wolfsburg, and third place Borussia Mönchengladbach find themselves scrapping for position against Bayer Leverkusen.
There were no surprises for Bayern Munich fans, as the 29 times winners of the Bundesliga returned with a 2-0 victory over Union Berlin last Sunday. Pushing for their eighth consecutive league trophy, Hans-Dieter Flick will be making sure his team are in perfect physical and mental condition to take on what could be a tricky opponent.
Now with 26 goals to his name in the competition, Bayern Munich’s lead striker Robert Lewandowski shows no sign of letting up, having returned to action with a goal. FC Bayern can also call on the exciting Serge Gnabry and the ever-impressive Thomas Mueller.
Coming off a 1-3 defeat to league rivals, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Eintracht Frankfurt will be looking to get some points on the board for what could prove to be a turbulent end of the season for last year’s seventh-place finishers.
With ups and downs throughout their 2019/20 campaign, The Eagles will be looking to secure any points they can in an effort to push them up from a lowly 13th place in a tight Bundesliga table.
Second-place Borussia Dortmund hit the ground running last week as 19-year-old starlet, Erling Braut Haaland, continued his immense form and opened the floodgates, leading to a 4-0 thrashing of Schalke 04 in the Revierderby.
Fighting to contest Bayern Munich’s for the Bundesliga’s top spot, the young guns in Dortmund are sure to be laser-focused on obtaining the next three points, and put their long-time rivals, Wolfsburg, to the sword.
Fans of Wolfsburg were relieved to be saved by a last-minute winner from centre-forward, Daniel Ginczek, in their contest against Augsburg last Saturday. With an 11-point gap between them and fifth-place rivals, Bayer Leverkusen, Wolfsburg will know that they will need to push beyond realistic expectations to secure a chance at qualification to the Europa League.
Looking to their fixture against Borussia Dortmund, The Wolves will be eager to make some headway on their current 6th place position on the table, knowing lower teams are only a few points away, and could easily leapfrog them over the weekend.
Borussia Mönchengladbach came into the first fixture since the shutdown flying, replicating their fantastic start to the beginning of the season. They scored two goals in the first 10 minutes, against a highly competent Eintracht Frankfurt team. They would see out the game and finish with a 3-1 victory that demonstrated why they were able to stay at the top of the league table for most of the year.
Now at home to a strong Bayer Leverkusen side, fans of Borussia Mönchengladbach will have the chance to see their team line-up against strong opposition and make an effort at a late charge towards the coveted top two places of the Bundesliga.
Securing a stunning 4-1 victory away from home, courtesy of two goals from 20-year-old attacking midfielder, Kai Havertz, Bayer Leverkusen will be readying themselves for the chance to overtake not only Borussia Mönchengladbach but also Borussia Dortmund through goal difference, this weekend.
With a rare opportunity to face their direct table rivals, and knowing a win would ensure that they take their opponent’s higher place in the table, Bayer Leverkusen should be fired up this weekend.
One of the tightest games to call in the Bundesliga this weekend, Borussia Mönchengladbach come out on top thanks to home advantage, as slight favourites at 7/5 (2.40) to win the fixture, while Bayer Leverkusen find themselves at 9/5 (2.80) to cause an upset.
