Bundesliga Weekend Predictions

The Bundesliga is back in action after the last round really moved things on the top of the table. Bayern and Leipzig played a draw which saw the holding champions remain 1st on the table. However, Dortmund didn’t capitalize on that draw because they lost to Leverkusen in an amazing 7 goals thriller. This week, there are more exciting fixtures which can create even more challenges at the top. Borussia Dortmund are going to open the round on Friday as they host in form Eintracht Frankfurt. Leipzig, on the other hand, are supposed to have a very easy time playing a home match against Werder Bremen. Last but not least, we have the holding champions traveling to face Koln who have been very good lately. You will find more information about all this in our weekly Bundesliga predictions.

The 2nd part of the season started in a fantastic way for Dortmund. Their new signing in attack has worked wonders so far as he has scored several goals in almost every game. However, in the last round, they took a step back as they lost to Leverkusen. They went down early in the game but at one moment they managed to turn things around and lead 2:3. Nevertheless, in the last 15 minuted of the match, they lost their focus and conceded twice, giving Leverkusen a 4:3 win and all 3 points. To make matters worse, they have to face Frankfurt who are a very strong team and are in great form at the moment. Dortmund can’t drop any more points right now as home turf advantage should be enough to claim all 3 points.

We can all agree that Frankfurt had a bad start to the season as they sold key players during the summer. However, it seems that they found the right formula and are once again moving towards the top of the table. They have won 3 out of the last 5 fixtures and are undefeated in 4 matches in a row. At the moment, Frankfurt are just 7 points below the TOP 6 and they will be looking to reduce that difference even further. Dortmund have the advantage of playing at home; however, Frankfurt are not going to roll over and let them win. Three points against Dortmund could really change their season.

They will get closer to the TOP 6 and get a massive spirit boost for the squad. Still, that’s easier said than done because Dortmund are desperate for points as well since they are trying to win the title.

Prediction

At this moment, Dortmund are considered absolute favorites to win this game. They are playing very good in attack and are able to beat just anyone. On top of that, they have home turf advantage and the stats are on their side as well. Dortmund haven’t lost to Frankfurt at home since 2010 and they would like to keep it that way. Still, Frankfurt are not going to just give up as they are more than capable of surprising Dortmund. For that reason, we are backing an Over 3.5 Goals outcome.

RB Leipzig vs Werder Bremen >> click here for live odds

The Red Bull side suffered several bad results in the last couple of weeks which allowed Bayern to climb to the top of the table. However, in the last round, they managed to hold Bayern to a draw even though they were playing away from home. The result proved that they are more than capable of challenging Bayern for the Bundesliga title this season. Leipzig have a much easier job this weekend as they are playing home against one of the worst teams in the league. Bremen are already relegation bound and they lost to Leipzig in the reverse fixture 0:3. With home turf advantage on their side, Leipzig should have absolutely no problem taking all 3 points on Saturday.

The visitors looked like they are improving at one point in the season; however, they got right back to their losing ways. No one really expected Bremen to be in such a position before the season started but it’s becoming reality with every passing matchweek. They are currently 4 points below Mainz who are just above the relegation zone. Werder still have a lot of time to save their season but they need to start winning some points soon. It’s unlikely that they can surprise Leipzig but Werder need to show their fans that they should remain in the Bundesliga. They need to improve defensively if they are to fight their way out of relegation by the end of the season.

Prediction

Quality and performance wise, Leipzig are absolute favorites to win this match. Bremen are in a bad position right now as they have lost 4 out of the last 5 rounds. They might be capable of scoring a goal against Leipzig; however, it will be a real shock if they can walk away with anything but a loss on Saturday. That’s why we are backing a – 1.75 Handicap outcome.

Koln vs Bayern Munich >> click here for live odds

The hosts were struggling with relegation for a long time but in recent weeks they have been performing admirably. With 4 wins in the last 5 rounds, Koln managed to separate themselves 6 points from the relegation zone. The schedule is not working in their favor at the moment but maybe they can use the momentum and surprise the holding champions on Sunday. Bayern Munich has been a squad who they have failed to defeat in many years. However, they have come close to a positive result on several occasions in the previous season. Back in 2011, Koln defeated Bayern 3:2 in this same fixture and their fans will be hoping for a similar performance.

The holding champions have finally returned to the top of the table and they aim to stay there until the end of the season. Even with all the problems they had, Bayern finally found their form and returned to their usual selves. Changes in the squad and coach changes seem to be behind them as they aim to win yet another Bundesliga title. However, in order to do so, they must make sure they don’t drop points against sides like Koln. Back at the start of the season, Bayern defeated Koln 4:0 and their fans will be expecting something similar on Sunday. Bayern can’t afford to drop even a single point at this stage of the season because Leipzig and Dortmund will be right behind them. Anything but a win will be a massive failure for this Munich side.

Prediction

The table leaders are absolute favorites to defeat Bremen on Sunday. They have the better team, more individual quality, and are performing much better at the moment. Additionally, they have to win all 3 points in order to remain 1st on the table. For that reason, we are backing the Away Team to Win Both Halves.
