The Bundesliga is back with it’s 12th round right after the International break. The Bundesliga is very different this year, compared to the previous couple of seasons. By this time, Bayern and Dortmund were usually the only clubs fighting for the title. Leipzig spiced things up for a few seasons but that was pretty much it. However, this season nothing is certain and both Bayern and Dortmund have already dropped a lot of points. As a matter of fact, Monchengladbach are on the top of the table, 4 points clear of the other contenders. Nevertheless, the season is long and it won’t be a surprise if Bayern end up champions in the end anyway. You will find more information about this matter in our weekly Bundesliga predictions.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Freiburg >> click here for live odds
Leverkusen have been all over the place with their performances which is why they are not in the TOP 6 at the moment. However, if they manage to defeat Freiburg on Saturday, this Bayer side could see themselves back where they belong. On the other hand, Freiburg is still surprising everyone with how they play. It’s been 11 rounds and they are still in TOP 4 with the same amount of points as Munich and Leipzig. Nevertheless, Leverkusen have not lost this fixture since 2012 and their fans will hope they keep it that way.
Quality wise, Leverkusen are clear favorites for this one. However, Freiburg are reluctant to give up their TOP 6 spot which they have worked hard for in the previous rounds. For that reason, we are backing an Over 2.5 Goals outcome.
Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Bayern Munich >> click here for live odds
Bayern played one game in the Bundesliga since they fired coach Kovac. Based on that, they did the right decision because Bayern destroyed Borussia Dortmund 4:0 in the previous round. They will now play away from home against a side that’s not exactly on their level. Bayern are going to try to get to the top of the table as soon as possible. Facing a side where they can rotate their squad is great since they will have a CL match to play midweek. Dusseldorf, on the other hand are a side that’s expected to get relegated. They are actually doing better than what people initially though; however, a defeat to Bayern on Saturday can see them drop to the relegation zone.
It’s hard to look past Bayern for this fixture. They are hungry for points as they aim to reclaim their place at the top of their table. The last time this fixture was played, Bayern scored 4 past Dusseldorf and a similar outcome is expected this time around. We are backing a – 1.75 Away Side Handicap outcome.
RB Leipzig vs Koln >> click here for live odds
Leipzig went through a hard period but they are now looking stronger than ever. They have been racking high scoring wins both in the Bundesliga and in the Champions League. Now they get to face a side which is relegation bound and is not looking like things will change for them this week. Koln are on a 3 games losing streak and another loss will cement their position in the relegation zone. However, they have been one of the teams that creates trouble for Koln in the last couple of seasons so Koln fans will hope their team can do the same in this fixture. Last year, this fixture finished 1:2 in favor of Koln and the squad are surely hoping that they can do the same on Saturday.
The Red Bull side is playing too good at the moment to make us doubt their win on Saturday. They might rotate due to the Champions League games midweek but even with that, Leipzig should have enough quality to see off Koln. We are backing a Home Side Victory outcome for this fixture.
