The last Bundesliga round brought some very interesting results even though there were no major changes to the top of the table. Dortmund went 3 goals down to Padeborn. Eventually, they came back to the match but it finished with a 3:3 draw. This saw Dortmund remain on the 6th position on the table. Leipzig got another win which saw them leapfrog Bayern as they sit 2nd on the table. However, that’s only by goal difference, since both Leipzig and Bayern have the same number of points. Monchengladbach are still 1st on the table even though they lost to Union Berlin in the last round.
However, the most interesting result happened in the fixture between Hoffenheim and Mainz. Hoffenheim had a chance to move to the 3rd position on the table as they were facing minnows Mainz. However, they got stunned and Mainz walked away with a 5:1 win over them. You will find more information about this matter in our weekly Bundesliga predictions.
Hertha Berlin vs Borussia Dortmund >> click here for live odds
The team from the capital is on a very bad run lately. 4 losses in a raw has seen them drop to the bottom of the table. As a matter of fact, only goal difference is keeping them above the relegation zone. To make things worse, they now have to face a wounded Dortmund side. A loss will see them drop even further but they do have statistics on their side. Hertha are one of the clubs that’s created the most trouble for Dortmund in recent years. They won this fixture back in 2017 and their fans will be hoping for something similar.
Dortmund are having a very average season so far. They have failed to win the last 2 Bundesliga fixtures while they also lost to Barcelona in the Champions League. They are on a downward spiral that can see them lose their chances of a spot in the last 16 phase in the CL while they are also losing pace in the Bundesliga title race. The match against Hertha could be a “make it or break it” point for their coach. The owners have already claimed that they have faith in him but results have to get better. If they don’t a coach change will likely happen.
Both sides are not at their best at the moment and Hertha have home turf advantage. However, Dortmund can’t afford to not win another match. We are backing an Away Side Victory outcome.
SC Padeborn 07 vs RB Leipzig >> click here for live odds
Padeborn are the worst team in the Bundesliga at the moment. In the last round, they squandered a 3 goal lead against Dortmund and only came out with a draw. Even with that 1 point, Padeborn are still stuck to the bottom of the league with just 5 points in 12 rounds. To make things worse, they now have to face on of the best teams in the league. Padeborn have never defeated Leipzig in their history and as things look, they shouldn’t hope about doing it this weekend.
The Red Bull side went through a tough phase but they are now back to winning ways. They have 3 wins in 3 matches in the Bundesliga as they jumped to the 2nd position on the table. They are doing a great job in the Champions League as well. Currently, Leizpig are first in their group and they came out with a draw against Benfica midweek, even though they first went 2 goals down. This Leizpig squad has shown a lot of character and resilience this season. They are definitely a serious contender for the Bundesliga title.
It’s hard to look past Leipzig for this fixture. They are in great form and are facing the worst team in the league. For that reason, we are backing an Away Side Over 2.5 Goals outcome.
FC Bayern Munich vs Bayer 04 Leverkusen >> click here for live odds
A couple of years ago, this fixture was the best that the Bundesliga had to offer. However, in recent years, Leverkusen haven’t really been on top of their game. As a matter of fact, Bayern are far from their best this season. They are doing amazing in the Champions League, however; the Bavarians have already dropped 12 points in the Bundesliga. Lucky for the, other sides haven’t been performing at their best which puts Bayern just 1 point below the table leaders.
The visitors are having such an up and down season so far. They have won just 1 fixture in the last 5 rounds in the Bundesliga. This saw them drop to the 9th position on the table. However, things are better than they seem because Bayer’s 19 points on the table are just 5 points less than the leaders Monchengladbach. Additionally, Leverkusen had an awful start to the CL. They seemed out of the competition but recent results have given them a small glimmer of hope. If Atletico fail to win in the last round, Leverkusen have a chance to top them if they defeat Juventus.
Bayern are playing better at the moment and they do have the home turf advantage. However, they have been conceding a lot of goals lately. Additionally, Leverkusen look like they have improved a lot in the last 2 weeks. For that reason, we are backing a Both Teams to Score outcome.
