Round 29 of the Bundesliga will soon be hitting our screens, as the very best of German football continues to hit us thick and fast in another weekend of packed action and Bundesliga betting. Now in the third week since the restart of the league, players are finding their fitness and managers are ready for a final push towards achieving their season objectives.
With the league table shaping-up and points becoming ever more valuable, we’ll take a look at the upcoming fixtures for the top three Bundesliga teams, as well as an all-important mid-table battle to secure a place in the Champions League.
The league’s top two met midweek in Der Klassiker. Bayern Munich took the victory, defeating Borussia Dortmund 1-0 away. FC Bayern now find themselves very much in control of the league, leading the pack with a seven-point gap. Both clubs will be pushing to secure a win this weekend, with each facing a desperate team in a battle to get away from the relegation positions at the bottom of the league table.
Bayern Munich enter the fixture dripping with confidence, and expecting the full three points, following their outstanding display of heroics at the Westfalenstadion. Being both the home side and league leaders, Bayern Munich go into the match as overwhelming favourites, at 2/33 (1.06) to win, with Fortuna Dusseldorf’s chances measured at a lowly 34/1 (35.00).
Borussia Dortmund know they need to make amends for the points dropped during their home defeat to Bayern Munich last Tuesday. With time running out to make a last-ditch effort to overtake the Bundesliga leaders, Borussia Dortmund must take advantage of being favourites to win away at 4/11 (1.36); SC Paderborn, meanwhile, are fighting to avoid being cut adrift at the bottom of the table and find themselves at 77/10 (8.70).
With European places up for grabs, plenty of teams are fighting to emerge from the congested mid-table pack.
Yet to win a game following the restart of the season, and suffering a disastrous midweek 3-1 loss to Hoffenheim, FC Koln are in a downward spiral, slipping further down the league table. With only eight-points separating their current 11th position and a spot into the Europa League, FC Koln have everything to play for, and more than enough talent to transform their fortunes through the upcoming fixtures.
RB Leipzig will be feeling like they’ve lost two important points following a disappointing 2-2 midweek draw against Hertha BSC. Although they still find themselves above their main rivals for third-place, Borussia Mönchengladbach, RB Leipzig will treat their away fixture against FC Koln as an opportunity to break away from a very tight position in the table.
Coming off an intense 3-3 midweek draw away to Eintracht Frankfurt, Freiburg are yet another team yet who have failed to secure a win following the restart of the Bundesliga. Currently in the middle of a very changeable table – with few points making the difference either way – Freiburg need to claim victory at home to Bayer Leverkusen this Friday if they have any desire to be amongst the best of Europe next season.
After being smashed 4-1 at home by a superior Wolfsburg team last Tuesday, Bayer Leverkusen head into their upcoming fixture against Freiburg potentially stripped of confidence but knowing the importance that a victory could have on the final positions of the Bundesliga. Level with Borussia Mönchengladbach in fourth place, Bayern Leverkusen must capitalise on this opportunity against weaker opposition, and take all three points in an effort to secure their goal of Champions League football next season.
