Bundesliga: It’ll Be a Desperate Battle for BVB

Borussia Dortmund vs VfB Stuttgart

The battle for the title of Germany's Finest is about to kick up a notch as March comes rolling along!

In January, Borussia Dortmund seemingly had a chokehold on the Bundesliga title, a considerable point gap helping them stave the top spot of the league away from Bayern Munich. Some even went so far as to claim that this would be the season that Lucien Favre's Black and Yellows will win it all.

However, the second half of the season has been nothing short of horrible for the BVB as they failed to win league game after league game. They now find themselves at risk of losing the summit as they now face VfB Stuttgart at the Signal Iduna Park.

Favre and his boys know that they need to stop their poor run of form here if they want to keep their hopes of a championship run alive. The BVB still have fantastic players on their roster, but can they stop their rut here?

Talking Points

Will the pressure break the BVB again?

A lot of Dortmund fans don't want to hear this, but a mere two goals are the only thing stopping Bayern Munich from reclaiming the spot they rightfully think is theirs, and they cannot blame anyone but their club for underperforming over the last couple of games.

A quick look at Dortmund's Bundesliga 2019 results should tell you all you need to know about their current run of form. They dropped points against teams they should have easily taken down in Frankfurt, Hoffenheim and Nurnberg. While they managed a narrow win against Leverkusen,  Augsburg and a superb Ji Dong-Won helped the Bavarians level with Dortmund on points.

Moreover, it's not only in Germany where they have experienced bad luck. They are officially out of the Champions League after Harry Kane and Tottenham kept them goalless in front of their own fans. While their play improved in this match, they still struggled to find the finishing touch they needed to get favourable results.

In order to achieve this, Favre needs every player in the team to rediscover the early-season form that got them in this position in the first place. Paco Alcacer needs to score more consistently in order to help stem the mark on Marco Reus. Axel Witsel must help the backline against opposition attacks in order to ease the pressure on Roman Burki. Jadon Sancho will continue to create for the Black and Yellows, but the opportunities he makes must be converted to goals.

Whether they actually get the monkey off their back is another question altogether, however.

Stuttgart also pressed to perform

A downtrodden Dortmund side is the best chance for Stuttgart to get some points and possibly claw their way out of the relegation zone. While their fate still lies on the hands of the BVB, they can also do something to ensure the victory.

They are one of the only three sides in the bottom half of the Bundesliga to pull off a positive result in the last game day, and their outstanding performance against Hannover 96 puts some distance between the two of them. Moreover, the goals of Mario Gomez, Ozan Kabak, and Steven Zuber are encouraging.

However, they are not disillusioned that the worst has come to pass. It hasn't been more than a month and a half since their valiant efforts were denied by Bayern Munich. The players are more than aware of their stature coming in and will be determined to keep their good run going.

Their defensive and attacking strength will likely come from Benjamin Pavard. While the World Cup winner is set to move to Bayern in the summer, he is focused on helping his club avoid the drop: "My only goal, for the time being, is to ensure Stuttgart's survival. We all love the club and none of us are happy about our current situation. It's down to us to turn it around."

History

 These two German giants have played each other about a hundred times since 1965. The more neutral SBOBET fan may think that the head-to-head score between these two teams are completely lopsided, but the score is actually closer than what is expected.

Dortmund have only won 37 of those 100 games while Stuttgart are ahead of them by a mere two games. The remaining 24 have been draws. However, Stuttgart fans know that Dortmund have been the better team as of late. Six of the last games they have played were notches in Dortmund's win column.

Betting Tip

??

Borussia Dortmund vs VfB Stuttgart VfB Stuttgart First Half Asian Handicap +0.50 @ 2.07
March 09, 22:30 (GMT+8)

The BVB are still the heavy favourites coming into this match with good reason. The sheer difference in player quality will be too much for Stuttgart to overcome, and their last game was a 0-4 defeat in front of their own fans.

However, their most recent run of form against Werder Bremen and Hannover should give them enough confidence to at least keep the first half tied. Kabak has been a vital addition to the side since his January move from Galatasaray, and Mario Gomez will be eager to equal whatever goals Dortmund score in the first half.

Bundesliga: When the Champions Meet the Wolves

Bayern Munich vs Wolfsburg

When champions Bayern Munich were beaten 3-1 by Bayer Leverkusen little over a month ago, their hopes of a seventh successive Bundesliga title were hanging by a thread.

Fast forward to last weekend and the picture had changed completely as long-time leaders Borussia Dortmund dropped yet more points and Munich were suddenly level at the summit.

Dortmund’s miserable month, sparked by throwing away a three-goal lead at home to Hoffenheim, has not only caused many a Bundesliga 2019 news headline but have also led to the Bundesliga 2019 betting odds turning around firmly in Munich’s favour.

SBOBET fans have already marked their top-of-the-table clash at the Allianz Arena on April 6 as a potential title decider.

Talking Points

With Dortmund now out of the Champions League, it’s hard to know how Lucien Favre’s men will respond – whether confidence will be shattered or whether their Euro exit will help their cause as far as domestic duties are concerned.

Either way, Bayern know they are now in a position they could scarcely have dreamt of four weeks ago and will not be complacent as they welcome Wolfsburg to town – themselves in seventh place spot but only four points off the fourth spot and the lucrative carrot of qualification for the season’s Champions League in sight.

A club that was in the knockout stages of Europe’s premier competition as recently as 2016 have often battled at the wrong end of the table in recent seasons.

However, helped by the presence of centre back John Brooks, Bruno Labbadia’s side dares to dream of a return to Europe’s top table.

John Brooks and his team-mates will certainly need to be in top form if they are to prevent a little bit of history this weekend.

 


 

 

DFB Pokal

That’s because Robert Lewandowski is one goal away from emulating Claudio Pizarro as the Bundesliga’s top foreign marksman on 195 goals.

He'll fancy his chances, too. After all, the Polish international has scored more against Wolfsburg than any other opponent, including five in a historic nine-minute spell back in 2015.

He also grabbed a brace when Munich defeated Wolfsburg at the Volkswagen Arena back in October.

Lewandowski is also only four goals behind Thomas Muller on the Bavarian’s all-time scoring list with reports the club wants to extend his contract by a further two years to 2023.

Wolfsburg may not have the best head-to-head record against Bayern, but here are two sides in form.

They are unbeaten in their last five Bundesliga outings and have the second-best away record in the league (behind Bayern) – with seven wins in 12 on the road – and also came from two down to draw in Munich last season.

Bayern have won 11 of their last 12 Bundesliga matches and are bidding to make it five league wins in a row.

There is so much to play for in a game where the result could be crucial come season’s end.

It will also be interesting to see how Muller, Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng respond after Germany national coach Joachim Low announced they would not be selected for future squads as he looks to revitalise the squad after a 2018 to forget.

Point to prove?

Robert Lewandowski helped Bayern Munich move level on 54 points with Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund
Bayern Munich joined Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund on 54 points following a 5-1 win at Borussia Mönchengladbach

History

Six of the seven meetings have ended in Bayern victories, including some one-sided scorelines.

The exception was in that game last season which finished 2-2 when Lewandowski and Arjen Robben goals were cancelled out by Maximilian Arnold and Daniel Didavi.

The last time Wolfsburg defeated Bayern was eight games ago in January 2015 when a certain Kevin De Bruyne – six months before he departed for Manchester City – inspired them to a 4-1 success.

De Bruyne scored twice that day and was joined on the scoresheet on that occasion by Bas Dost who also netted twice.

Betting Tip

??

Bayern Munich vs Wolfsburg Total Goal 4-6 @ 2.28
March 09, 22:30(GMT+8)

You will not be surprised to hear that the odds strongly fancy Bayern.

1X2 has them priced @ 1.24 with Asian Handicap odds backing the champions -2.00 @ 2.21.

Wolfsburg, by comparison, are 1X2 @ 12.00 and available to back with Asian Handicap odds + 1.75 @ 2.05.

Goals are definitely predicted with over 3.25 only paying out @ 1.92, and total goal 0-1 @ 6.00.

Total goal 2-3 is priced @ 2.24 and total goal 4-6 @ a marginally higher 2.35.

The Double Chance Wolfsburg or Draw @ 3.70 will appeal to some, perhaps for those who feel Munich may have one eye on the second leg of their Champions League last 16 tie against Liverpool which follows four days later.

A repeat of their victory earlier in the campaign – correct score 3-1 to Bayern – is available @ 9.00.

I’m going to think big for my tip.

Bundesliga: Supersub Pulisic Saves BVB

Borussia Dortmund 3-1 VfB Stuttgart

Dortmund pulled out all the stops to register a late win over Stuttgart thanks to an assist and a goal from substitute Christian Pulisic, and that keeps them level on points with FC Bayern at the top of the Bundesliga.

Over 81,000 fans went wild at the Signal Iduna Park after seeing their side held for over 80 minutes when Pulisic put on a brilliant late show. But Lucien Favre’s team has slipped into second place on goal difference after Bayern slaughtered Wolfsburg 6-0. Bundesliga 2019 betting odds have swung firmly in the direction of Bavaria, making FC Bayern odds on to retain their title after chasing down Dortmund.

As for Markus Weinzierl’s Stuttgart, the relegation battle becomes ever more intense as they languish in 16th place.

Highlights of the game

BVB’s big players had a disappointing night in the Champions League defeat to Spurs in midweek and they looked intent on making things right this afternoon. Paco Alcacer had two good early efforts, first heading a Jadon Sancho corner just wide and then taking a Marius Wolf pass and shooting from a tight angle that got blocked.

Then Mario Gotze put Sancho in, and he struck a firm effort, again blocked by a packed Stuttgart defence. The visitors made a foray into Dortmund territory, and Emiliano Insua took a pot shot from distance which was charged down. And on the half-hour, Steven Zuber put Nicolas Gonzalez through. He came close, but his shot whistled past the right post.

Sancho had the best effort so far on 37 minutes with a low shot towards the bottom corner, but Ron-Robert Zieler got down well to make a smart save.

As the half-time Bundesliga 2019 updates spread across the Signal Iduna Park, the big news was that FC Bayern was 2-0 up against Wolfsburg, and that sent a nervous murmur around the stadium.

Favre sent his men out with a second-half mission, and they were on the front foot again with skipper Marco Reus trying to spark a goal. He found Raphael Guerreiro in space in the penalty area and his shot was inches past the left post. As BVB pressed, Alcacer had a header tipped over the bar. And then the deadlock was broken on the hour.

When Gonzalo Castro tripped Jadon Sancho, the Yellow Wall erupted as VAR awarded a penalty. And it exploded into life again when Reus stepped up to stroke the spot-kick home. That was his 14th goal of the season and, despite being out injured for weeks, he’s right in the hunt to be the Bundesliga top scorer.

But if the home fans thought that their team would pull away from the strugglers, how wrong they were. In a flurry of yellow cards, Wolf picked up a booking for a foul on Alexander Esswein. When Castro swung the free-kick in, Marc-Oliver Kempf rose highest to head the ball into the bottom-right corner, giving Roman Burki no chance.

Alcacer forced another good save from Zieler with a shot from distance, and Favre threw on Christian Pulisic with ten minutes to go to try to force a winner. And what an inspired substitution that turned out to be when the young American worked well to find Alcacer in the box, and he fired into the top-left corner to spark wild celebrations.

Premier League






 

There was a late scare when Stuttgart’s Ozan Kabak’s header whistled just wide, but there were cheers of relief and delight all around the ground when Pulisic fired home the third.

Key statistics

Borussia dominated the first 45 minutes play with over 77 per cent possession and eight shots to four, but only two were on target and Zieler had just one good save to make.

But the hosts fully deserved their win in the end, registering 17 shots on goal and eight on target as Stuttgart’s only effort on target was their goal.

What’s next?

Favre’s team had a firm hold on the Bundesliga title at the turn of the year, but a patchy run of form means they are now neck-and-neck with FC Bayern

Next Saturday, BVB head to Berlin to take on mid-table Hertha. Keep it right here at SBOBET where we’ll be previewing that game with head-to-head stats and a look at the best odds, and then bringing you all the action from the match.

Stuttgart are at home to Hoffenheim next week, another side comfortably off in mid-table, and Weinzierl’s team will push hard for a crucial win. They came within ten minutes of a great result today and that should give them hope.

Bundesliga: Beware the Bayern Backlash!

Bayern Munich vs Mainz 05

This is not the time to be rocking up at the Allianz Arena to take on FC Bayern, but it’s the turn of FSV Mainz this weekend…and they’d better be prepared.

Of course, Sandro Schwarz is a good coach and has talented players, but the Mainz boss knows that not only are his opponents in formidable Bundesliga form, they are also pretty angry! Last night, Niko Kovac’s team crashed out of the Champions League to Liverpool, and that after they had held the Premier League outfit to a draw on Merseyside.

I expect the Bavarians to show no mercy when Mainz come to town. The visitors aren’t in good form at the moment, so I fully expect the reigning champions to make it a sixth Bundesliga win on the trot on Sunday.

Talking Points

Can anyone stop the Bayern Bandwagon?

With nine games to go, it’s beginning to look a little ominous for those (millions) hoping that BVB can wrestle the title off the champions. The Bundesliga 2019 betting odds have swung firmly in favour of FC Bayern over the past few weeks. Our latest odds have the Bavarians down to 1.28 with long-time leaders BVB out at 3.40.

Bayern’s chances of retaining the title were hanging by a thread not long ago, but a run of 12 wins in 13 games, while Dortmund stuttered, has shifted the momentum firmly in Kovac’s team’s direction. They have closed the nine-point gap but the teams are still level on points, and the Bayern coach is determined to take a grip on top spot, saying: “We are now where we wanted to be. We want to stay there, too.”

Bayern hammered Wolfsburg last week by six goals to nil, and Robert Lewandowski scored twice, becoming the German league’s all-time top scoring foreign player in the process. He’s top of the Bundesliga scoring charts again and looks likely to retain his crown; one ray of hope for the visitors is that he has only scored twice in the last six games against Mainz.

Prior to thrashing Wolfsburg, Bayern beat Champions League-chasing Borussia Monchengladbach, 1-5, on their own patch, so what price is Kovac’s team smashing Mainz for seven?!

Can Robert Lewandowski lead Bayern Munich to stay on top of Bundesliga table?
Robert Lewandowski celebrates scoring against Wolfsburg

It’s all about winning a seventh consecutive title now, and Bayern fans will be checking the Bundesliga 2019 updates on Saturday evening to see if tenth-placed Hertha Berlin can do a favour when they host Borussia Dortmund.

Is this a free hit for Mainz?

No coach will ever admit it, but if ever there was a game where not much is expected then this is surely it.

Schwarz has a young team with an average age of just over 24. They are 11 points clear of the drop and shouldn’t get dragged into a relegation fight. But if they leave the Allianz Arena empty-handed, then that will be six defeats in seven and their momentum will all but have stopped. Realistically, they only need another three or four points to survive so I believe this game is a free hit.

Die Nullfunfer’s defence will be severely tested, and captain Stefan Bell, alongside 23-year-old Moussa Niakhate, has his work cut out. The skipper is an uncompromising figure, picking up seven yellow cards so far this season.

FSV Mainz can be dangerous on the break: in the Bundesliga statistics, they sit fifth in the list of sprints and fourth in the number of crosses from open play. Wing-back

Daniel Brosinski has produced five assists, and Jean-Phillipe Mateta has been the chief beneficiary with seven goals. The 21-year-old striker was on the bench in the 0-1 defeat to Monchengladbach last week and will hope for a start against the league’s best on Sunday.

Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer has kept just two clean sheets in the last eight games, so I won’t rule out an away goal.

History

Mainz have hovered around mid-table since promotion in 2009 and qualified for the Europa League in 2016, but another season in the top flight isn’t a bad return.

In the 30 games played since 2005, FC Bayern have won 22 while Mainz won five and there have been just three draws. The champions have won five of the last six meetings, the other being a 2-2 draw in Munich back in 2017.

Recent form isn’t good for Mainz with three consecutive away losses while Bayern have won eight from 12 at home.

Betting Tip

??

Bayern Munich vs Mainz 05 Bayern Munich First Half -1.00 @ 1.89
March 18 01:00 (GMT+8)

At SBOBET odds of 1.13 a home win, 7.20 for a draw and 21.00 for a Mainz win, I can’t see anything other than a convincing Bayern victory. I think they will be determined to get Wednesday’s loss to Liverpool out of the way, and so there should be value in backing a fast start.

A Big Berlin Battle: Dortmund Chase Bundesliga Summit Against Hertha

Hertha Berlin vs Borussia Dortmund

It's been an interesting time in the German top flight, and the stage is set up for a grand finale at the top!

Bayern Munich have finally reclaimed the top spot in the Bundesliga, but they are only ahead of Borussia Dortmund by a mere two goals. They may have struggled as of late, but they have a chance to catch up if they win against Hertha Berlin.

SBOBET markets will undoubtedly give the advantage to the BVB, and they have no business losing this match when they are in the business of winning the league. However, Dortmund have shown a tendency to trip whenever they look too far ahead. Berlin were also one of the sides that gave them a proper headache during the season's early days.

Talking Points

Dortmund need a hero to step up

 


 

 

Serie A

While the situation cannot be called a bottle job just yet, it's hard to deny that Lucien Favre's boys are having a lacklustre 2019. They need to turn things around in the league if they want to finish the season on a positive note.

They probably regret not scoring against a struggling Nurnberg as those points could have kept the Bavarians at bay. Their shocking loss to Augsburg before their frustrating elimination from the Champions League also leave a bad taste in the mouths of the Yellow Wall.

The worrying run of form also continued for much of their league game against Stuttgart, and it looked like they were bound to choke their way out of the championship. It was fortunate for them that Christian Pulisic stepped up and gave a performance to remember at the Signal Iduna Park.

They know that this form cannot continue and they need to make a way to consolidate their form and keep the pressure on their Bavarian rivals. They have the players to help them secure the feat, but they also those same players to step up their game.

The last couple of games showed how poorly the strikers have been misfiring as of late. Both Marco Reus and Paco Alcacer haven't stood out the same way they did compared to the earlier weeks of the season, and they need to rediscover their scoring form quick.

Jadon Sancho is doing a wonderful job from the right wing and will definitely perform for the Black and Yellows, but he needs the rest of the team to step up and finish the chances he creates. While the team assures that he will still be playing for the BVB next season, they need to win games like this to keep him in Germany.

No-pressure Berlin can do it again

A quick look at the league table will tell you that Berlin is not a team the BVB's passionate supporters should worry about. They do not have big-name players in their roster, and their inconsistent form sees them settle down at tenth.

However,  a more detailed inspection of their Bundesliga 2019 results will tell you a different story. They secured a fantastic 3-0 victory away at Borussia Monchengladbach. They also managed to compete with Bayern Munich for a good chunk of their 1-0 loss at the Allianz Arena.

Pal Dardai has a wealth of dependable players who can step up if needed. Ondrej Duda is doing well up front, leading the team with his 10 goals. Marko Grujic, Jordan Torunarigha, and Valentino Lazaro are also playing well on the defensive end. Niklas Stark has been an outstanding young defender that Bayern Munich are interested in his services.

Make no mistake: this team can definitely play with the best of them. The BVB better put their best foot forward if they want to get the win at the Olympiastadion.

History

These two sides are established Bundesliga regulars, and they have faced each other in football games for at least 66 times since the German top flight's establishment in 1962. The BVB won 30 of those games with Berlin winning 18 of them. The remaining 18 results were draws. The quality of performances the two sides have put out are painfully obvious: the BVB have produced 116 goals, 29 goals more than Die Alte Dame.

Their latest league game is a cautionary tale for Dortmund fans, though: the BVB had the lead for a good chunk of this October 2018 match, but Salomon Kalou put on a man-of-the-match performance and was key in denying Dortmund the victory.

Betting Tip

??

Hertha Berlin vs Borussia Dortmund Over 2.75 Goals @ 1.96
March 17, 01:30 (GMT+8)

Bundesliga 2019 odds still see Dortmund as favourites to win this fixture, but their recent form put a huge question mark in bookmakers' heads. Do the BVB still have what it takes to handle the pressure and keep it up with Bayern Munich until the end of the season.

This writer believes that Dortmund can still eke out a win against Berlin, but the path to the three points will be anything but easy. Sancho should produce a goal in the first half, and either Alcacer or Pulisic should finish the job from the bench.

However, it is also highly possible that Duda and friends can spoil Dortmund's season and pull off a legendary victory. Given the way the team has performed against better competition, I will not be surprised if this ends in another 2-2 draw or a classic 2-1 upset.

Bundesliga: BVB Grab Injury-Time Winner in Berlin

Hertha BSC 2-3 Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund climbed back to the top of the Bundesliga tonight after winning a five-goal thriller in front of a massive 75,000 crowd at the Olympiastadion in Berlin.

With the match tied going into injury time, it was captain marvel Marco Reus who fired home the winner after man-of-the-match Jadon Sancho teed him up. And that was hard on the hosts who had been ahead twice through goals from Ivory Coast striker Salamon Kalou.

Hertha are a team without big names but battled hard as a group and ended the game with nine men. They certainly left nothing on the pitch after seven minutes of injury time.  But make no mistake; this was a huge win for Borussia Dortmund in the chase for the title as they try to hold off the might of FC Bayern.

There’s still a long way to go and Lucien Favre’s team is well in the hunt; we’ll be there right to the finish with all the hot-off-the-press Bundesliga 2019 news.

Highlights of the game

Dan-Axel Zagadou and Salomon Kalou both played a vital role for their respective teams in the recent Bundesliga game
Borussia Dortmund's Dan-Axel Zagadou in action against Hertha Berlin's Salomon Kalou during their Bundesliga clash

Hertha got off to the perfect start, going ahead on just four minutes. Davie Selke passed to Maximilian Mittelstadt, and he hit a low shot heading for the corner that BVB keeper Roman Burki saved, but he could do nothing to stop Salomon Kalou as he poked the ball home from close range.

It didn’t take long for the visitors to get on level terms, though, and it was midfield ace Thomas Delaney who fired home after a lightning break. What a start!

Dortmund began to take control of the game, and Rune Jarstein was busy in the Hertha goal, saving well from Jacob Bruun Larsen after Marco Reus had put the striker in. But Favre’s team couldn’t get the second and they went behind again, against the run of play, after Julian Weigl handled in the penalty area. Kalou took the responsibility and coolly slotted the spot-kick home in the bottom-left corner.

So BVB went into the break behind, and Favre had some work to do.

Christian Pulisic was BVB’s match-winner against Stuttgart last week, and he made a start in Berlin. And he came close to levelling just after the break with a low strike, but Jarstein was equal to it again. But the visitors did draw level once more when Dan-Axel Zagadou headed home from a Jadon Sancho corner.

The young England starlet is top of the assists table in this year’s Bundesliga and he’s becoming a hotter prospect by the week. Dortmund’s sporting director, Michael Zorc, has insisted he’ll still be at the club next season and they will do well to keep hold of him.

Pulisic saw another good effort saved and then he linked up with Sancho, but the England man’s shot from the left edge of the penalty area was charged down. The hosts went down to ten men, with five minutes remaining, when Jordan Torunarigha received a second yellow for a nasty foul on Achraf Hakimi, and then it was all hands to the pump.

It looked like Hertha was about to hold out, but then Sancho weaved his magic again deep into injury time, teeing up Reus for the skipper to slam home the winner into the bottom-right corner to send the visiting hoards wild.

Tempers flared in the home camp and Hertha finished with nine men when Vedad Ibisevic was red-carded for violent conduct.

Key statistics

The Hertha vs BVB betting tips generally agreed on an away win, but that was mighty close!

The hosts put up a good fight with a decent share of possession, but BVB peppered their goal with shots, firing 25 in with eight on target, while Hertha managed four on target from seven efforts.

It was a frantic game and neither side managed to reach 80 per cent passing accuracy. But it wasn’t a dirty game, with just 16 fouls committed, though the first of Hertha’s two red cards cost the home side dearly.

What’s next?

Hertha Berlin have an away game to RB Leipzig next, and that will be a tough test against the third-placed side. And then they return to Berlin for a mid-table clash at home to Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Borussia Dortmund are at home to Wolfsburg and will expect to win against the side destroyed 6-0 by FC Bayern last week. The SBOBET Bundesliga 2019 is coming to a climax, and we can expect drama like this by the week.

Bundesliga: Dortmund Must Be Wary of Wolfsburg

Borussia Dortmund vs VfL Wolfsburg

The Bundesliga is back after the international break, which means Borussia Dortmund's chase for the title continues. The BVB had a dramatic injury-time win over Hertha Berlin just before the international break to remain level with Bayern Munich atop the table.

With Bayern in imperious form at the moment, Dortmund know they cannot afford any slip-ups. They must continue picking up all three points to keep their title hopes alive.

However, Wolfsburg's Bundesliga 2019 results over the past few weeks have been pretty decent, and they could prove to be a handful for a Dortmund side that's been a bit unconvincing of late.

Talking Points

Dortmund late show

While Bayern have been blowing teams away of late -- they've scored at least five goals in their last three games -- Dortmund have been escaping by the skin of their teeth. They needed until the 84th minute to secure a 3-1 win over Stuttgart. Meanwhile, they needed to come from behind to a Marco Reus injury-time winner to top Hertha Berlin.

Dortmund can't expect to get away with leaving things so late over and over again. They need to start taking care of business much earlier in order to prevent a slip-up that could cost them the title.

 


 

 

Premier League

Thankfully, stars Marco Reus and Jadon Sancho have returned unscathed from international duty. Moreover, both players performed well for their respective countries. Sancho delivered an assist in England's 5-0 demolition of the Czech Republic. Meanwhile, Reus set up Germany's dramatic winner against the Netherlands.

Unfortunately, Christian Pulisic picked up a quad injury while on duty with the US national team. That's quite a blow to Dortmund, who lose a key difference-making weapon off the bench. Pulisic had a goal and an assist after coming off the bench against Stuttgart. Pulisic's absence means more pressure will be on Reus and Sancho to provide the ammunition to the Dortmund attack against Wolfsburg.

Dangerous Wolves attack

The Dortmund defence has had its problems of late. They've kept just one clean sheet in their last 11 matches in all competitions.

That's not ideal form ahead of a matchup against a Wolfsburg attack which has been finding the net a decent amount of late. Wolfsburg have scored at least three goals in four of their last six Bundesliga matches.

They had a slight blip after they were completely torn to shreds 6-0 by an in-form Bayern side. But they made up for it by demolishing Fortuna Dusseldorf, 5-2. Wout Weghorst had a magnificent game as he netted a hat-trick and also assisted on the team's other two goals.

VfL Wolfsburg are hoping to boost their European hopes when they clash against Borussia Dortmund in Bundesliga

The 26-year-old has emerged as one of the Bundesliga's top marksmen this season. He has 12 goals on the season, which is tied for sixth in the league.

While the Bundesliga 2019 betting odds continue to favour Dortmund, the last few weeks have shown that they appear vulnerable. And with the pressure of the title race continuing to mount, their unconvincing defence could be prone to more errors.

Wolfsburg certainly have the weapons to do damage against Dortmund. However, history will be strongly against Wolfsburg and their chances of getting a massive away win.

History

To put it simply, this has been quite a one-sided matchup in recent years. That's because Dortmund have lost to Wolfsburg just one in their last 10 meetings. That includes seven wins for Dortmund -- including their first meeting earlier this season -- and two draws. Moreover, Wolfsburg have not beaten Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park since 2012.

The last few seasons have not been particularly good for Wolfsburg. In four meetings between 2016 and 2017, Dortmund beat Wolfsburg by a combined score of 16-2! But curiously, the two meetings they had in 2018 resulted in just one goal in total.

Betting Tip

??

Borussia Dortmund vs VfL Wolfsburg Total Goals 4-6 @ 2.65
March 30, 22:30 (GMT+8)

Despite the fact that Wolfsburg have looked feisty and dangerous in front of goal of late, the SBOBET odds don't give them much of a chance to leave Dortmund with all three points. 1X2 has them priced at 6.00 to pull off the upset against the league's second-placed side.

That very well could be the case, but there's a decent chance that there will be a fair few goals in store in this match. With Wolfsburg's recent form in front of goal coupled with the Dortmund defence's recent frailties, the home side could struggle to keep a clean sheet once again.

But even with Pulisic's absence, Dortmund do have the firepower to get at Wolfsburg. Expect a high-scoring affair with around 4-6 total goals, which is priced at 2.65.

Bundesliga: FC Bayern Eyes on the Prize

SC Freiburg vs Bayern Munich

The German league run-in to the finish line is officially on and, at the moment, reigning champion FC Bayern has its nose in front.

Niko Kovac’s Bayern has its next big test in the Bundesliga charge at the MAGE SOLAR Stadion, where the league leaders take on mid-table SC Freiburg. 24,000 fans will pack into the stadium, most of them hoping for a shock result, but if the visitors continue their recent league form, hope may be all they have.

Bayern leads the Bundesliga on goal difference but it could have been more until BVB scored an injury time winner over Hertha Berlin last time out. Even so, the latest   Bundesliga betting odds, here at SBOBET, have installed the Bavarians as clear favourites with odds of 1.33, while long tine leader BVB has drifted out to 3.00.

Talking Points

Freiburg can play with freedom

Head coach Christian Streich has guided his team to a comfortable mid table position. The hosts sit in 11th place, 11 points above the drop zone and 11 below a Europa League place. So with a tense end to the season all but out of the question his team can play without pressure. That often makes a team more dangerous when they come up against an opponent at either end of the table.

Can Freiburg upset SBOBET odds and win in their home?

Captain Mike Frantz will have his team-mates up for this one. He is a big figure at the club, making 100 appearances for Freiburg since his arrival in 2014 and has weighed in with ten goals from midfield. And he’ll remind his team that they have a chance of being unbeaten against FC Bayern this season, having draw in Bavaria.

The hosts are in pretty good shape having drawn with Champions League hopefuls Borussia Monchengladbach before the international break, winger Vicenzo Grifo scoring their goal as they secured an impressive point.

FC Bayern’s big title push

The reigning champions are gathering a head of steam, having thumped Mainz by 6-0 before the international break and they have a steely look about them after a sluggish start to the season. Last season’s Bundesliga top scorer Robert Lewandowski is back to the top of the scoring charts with 18 goals and he has, unsurprisingly, registered the most shots in the Bundesliga at 97. That’s 18 more that RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner, and Lewandowski was on target last time out as the Bavarians hammered Mainz.

FC Bayern is already looking towards the 2019/20 season having captured the signature of Atletico Madrid’s full back Lucas Hernandez for a club record 80m Euros. The 23 year old has signed a five year deal and, having won the World Cup with France last summer, he’s an exciting recruit for the league leaders.

History

Freiburg was relegated in 2015, despite beating FC Bayern in their second last game, but they returned to the Bundesliga as second tier champions the following season.

 


 

 

Premier League

Current Germany manager Joachim Low is the most famous son of Freiburg, as the club’s record scorer with 81 goals.

But there are some stats the home fans would rather not know. Freiburg’s biggest ever home loss was a 0-6 hammering at the hands of FC Bayern back in 2003.

And the head to head SC Freiburg vs FC Bayern results make worrying reading for the hosts. In the 39 games contested between these two teams since 1993, Bayern has had a stranglehold, winning 28 to Freiburg’s four and there have been seven draws. But, of course, they failed to win in their home fixture against Saturday’s opponents last November.

FC Bayern has won its last three Bundesliga games scoring a huge 17 goals and conceding just one, and top scorer Lewandowski is bang on form again and is now the fifth top scorer in the history of Germany’s top league.

The Bavarians are unbeaten in four away games and have won ten league matches on the road this season.

Betting Tip

??

SC Freiburg vs Bayern Munich First Half Over 1.50 Goals @ 2.08
March 30 22:30 (GMT+8)

Having exited the Champions League at the Round of 16 stage, against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, FC Bayern will be determined to forge ahead in the league and win its 28th Bundesliga and seventh on the bounce. The last winners from outside Bavaria, Borussia Dortmund, will be desperately hoping for a slip up but, at pre-match SBOBET odds of 1.24 on a Bayern win, that looks very unlikely.

Freiburg is way out there at 12.00 to win while the draw is at 5.40. A Bayern win, and a heavy one, looks like the most likely outcome but I have an inkling Freiburg might cause some problems. So I’m going for a first half with two goals… which may be a good hedge either way.

Bundesliga: Paco Packs a Punch To Send Dortmund Top!

Borussia Dortmund 2-0 VfL Wolfsburg

Two injury-time goals from Paco Alcacer gave BVB a crucial win in front of a packed Signal Iduna Park to send his team back to the top of the Bundesliga.

It was a tense, tense match against a resilient Wolfsburg side, but after a subdued first half, the hosts came out on the attack in the second and eventually got their reward.

The result was a little harsh on Wolfsburg, who dropped out of the European places. But it was all smiles in the Dortmund dressing room when the news came through that FC Bayern had dropped points away to Freiburg.

The Bundesliga 2019 betting markets are still likely to favour the Bavarians, but this was a huge result for BVB's title hopes.

Highlights of the game

Dortmund made a bright enough start to the match as the Yellow Wall roared on its heroes. Dan-Axel Zagadou had a good chance, but he headed just over from a well-aimed Raphael Guerreiro free-kick.

But this was always going to be a game in which the hosts had to be wary of a dangerous opponent. In a very tight first half, the visitors forced only two saves from Dortmund's Roman Burki.

On 12 minutes, Maximilian Arnold passed to William in space on the right side of the penalty area. He shot low towards the right corner, but Burki got down well to save. At the other end, Alcacer got on the end of a Mario Gotze cross, but his right-footed effort flew just over the bar.

Burki was then called on again as Felix Klaus laid the ball off to Wout Weghorst just outside the box. Weghorst unleashed a fierce shot which Burki saved in the top right corner. The giant Dutch striker is Wolfsburg’s top scorer and almost added to his 12 goals with that effort.

Dortmund did have another try just before the break; Guerreiro supplied another Zagadou chance, but it was once again too high. As the teams walked off for half-time, the passionate BVB crowd hoped for better in the second 45.

The hosts did show more urgency at the start of the second half, and Wolfsburg keeper Koen Casteels was brought into action on the hour. He saved Jadon Sancho’s snapshot which was heading for the top right corner after Thomas Delaney had put the young England starlet in.

Alcacer then had a free-kick in a dangerous area, but he shot hopelessly high and wide. Guerreiro also had a shot saved comfortably by Casteels.

At the opposite end of the pitch, the dangerous Weghorst reminded the hosts he was there with a smart effort which flew narrowly wide.

The 81,000 fans packed into the Signal Iduna Park felt the sense of the urgency and continued to roar their team on. Guerreiro had another effort, this time forcing Casteels to stretch to the top corner.

Wolfsburg weren't just sitting back waiting for the final whistle, though. And when William found Jerome Roussillon on the left side of the box, his shot whistled past Burki’s right-hand post.

With the clock ticking down, Sancho had a shot charged down after substitute Jacob Bruun Larsen had put him in. And in the last minute of normal time, William gave away a foul just outside the box.

The 81,000 people held their breath and then exploded into wild celebration as Alcacer hammered his free-kick into the net with 91 minutes on the clock.

And you can imagine the noise three minutes later when BVB broke up a Wolfsburg attack and countered quickly. Sancho laid the ball off to Alcacer and the Spaniard fired low into the net to spark pandemonium.

The celebrations just went on and on. And when the day’s Bundesliga 2019 results came in with FC Bayern being held to a draw by Freiburg, there was even more reason to party in Dortmund.

Key statistics

The first half was a cagey affair; neither team played with any great fluency and mustered just two shots apiece. While BVB didn’t manage one on target, Roman Burki had made two saves to keep the hosts level.

Premier League

By the end of the game, the stats looked better for BVB with 11 shots to six and five to three on target.

Two weeks ago, a last-minute winner kept BVB level at the top with Bayern. And now, it was even better as two injury-time goals moved them ahead of the champions for the time being.

What’s next?

It all comes to a head for Borussia Dortmund next week when they have a crunch match away to FC Bayern, who gave Wolfsburg a 6-0 spanking very recently.

Keep it here through the week to see our SBOBET predictions for that potential title decider.

The result of that game will dictate their mood when they return to the Signal Iduna Park the following week to take on Mainz.

Meanwhile, Wolfsburg are at home to Hannover and then have a difficult away game to third-placed RB Leipzig.

Bundesliga Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund: Der Klassiker Title Decider

Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund

It's always a big deal whenever Bundesliga Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund is next on the fixture list. But this upcoming edition of Der Klassiker will have even more significance than usual. That's because Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich know that the Bundesliga title will essentially be on the line when they square off at the Allianz Arena on Saturday. Dortmund have a two-point lead atop the table over Bayern heading into the match after Bayern's recent slip-up. A win for them would give them some much-needed breathing room for the stretch run. But a win for Bayern would put them right back in the driver's seat for a seventh successive Bundesliga crown. SBOBET Bundesliga 2019 fans should be all over this match, and with good reason. It's by far the biggest match in Germany -- and might just be the biggest in all of Europe's top five leagues this season, too.

 


 

 

UEFA - Champions League

Talking Points

Bayern's home-field/experience advantage Bayern Munich ceded top spot back to Dortmund last weekend as they stumbled to a 1-1 draw away at Freiburg. Robert Lewandowski had a golden opportunity to grab all three points in the final minutes, but he was unable to convert his header. Bayern's slip-up was a bit surprising given how dominant they'd been heading into the match. In their previous three outings, they hammered Borussia Monchengladbach, Wolfsburg, and Mainz by a combined score of 17-1. Overall, they had won 13 of their last 14 Bundesliga assignments prior to the Freiburg draw, scoring three or more goals in 11 of those matches. But being back at home for Der Klassiker should be a major boost for Bayern. They've won their last seven matches at the Allianz Arena, conceding just two goals during that span. Manuel Neuer and David Alaba both missed Bayern's 5-4 win over Heidenheim in the DFB-Pokal in midweek due to injury. But it wouldn't be surprising to see them make their way back to the side for this huge match against Dortmund. With the likes of Neuer, Alaba, Thomas Muller, Mats Hummels, Jerome Boateng, and Lewandowski, Bayern obviously have the significant experience advantage over the young Dortmund side. And the atmosphere around the Allianz Arena should only add to the pressure on Dortmund in Der Klassiker. Dortmund's injury issues Dortmund may be top of the table heading into Der Klassiker, but they have been far from convincing in their recent outings. They've needed some very late goals -- in the 84th minute or later -- in each of their last three games to secure hard-fought wins.
Paco Alcacer will be a huge threat Bundesliga Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund
Paco Alcacer celebrates after scoring a goal against Wolfsburg

Paco Alcacer scored three of those late goals, including two in injury time in their 2-0 win over Wolfsburg. However, the big Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund news is that the Spanish striker is a doubt to play in Der Klassiker due to an arm injury, which would be a massive blow to Dortmund. Moreover, Dortmund manager Lucien Favre also has to deal with injuries to two key defenders: left-back Achraf Hakimi and centre-back Abdou Diallo. Right-back Lukasz Piszczek has already been out since February, which means Dortmund could be without three of their top four defenders against Bayern. On the bright side, Dortmund will have Marco Reus back in the side after he missed the Wolfsburg match due to the birth of his child. Reus scored twice in Dortmund's big 3-2 home win over Bayern in the first Der Klassiker of the season. He also scored a dramatic injury-time winner against Hertha Berlin prior to his absence. But with Christian Pulisic out and possibly Alcacer too, Dortmund could find themselves short of firepower off the bench. Dortmund's makeshift defence will be the key in Der Klassiker, though. With Bayern back to banging goals in for fun at home, Dortmund will need a heroic effort from their defenders to keep the home side at bay.

History

Dortmund's win against Bayern earlier this season snapped the Bavarians' streak of three straight Der Klassiker Bundesliga wins. And over the last 13 Bundesliga meetings, Bayern have had the upper hand with seven wins. Dortmund have won just three times, with three draws. Matches at the Allianz Arena have been similarly one-sided. In their last 14 visits to Munich in the Bundesliga, Dortmund have come away with all three points just three times. Bayern have won nine times, with two draws.

Betting Tip

??

Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund Bayern Munich Asian Handicap -1.5 @ 2.31
April 7, 00:30 (GMT+8)
Dortmund have had a great season, and the fact that they find themselves in this position is a tremendous accomplishment. However, the signs are seemingly pointing against them in Der Klassiker. The bad condition of their defence is obviously not great, especially against a Bayern side that's rediscovered its scoring touch at home in recent weeks. It's just hard to see Dortmund preventing Bayern's attack from finding the back of the net given all their injury problems. Bayern's experienced campaigners won't be fazed by the situation of Der Klassiker with the title at stake; they're more likely to rise up to it and put on an outstanding performance in front of their home fans. So as far as Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund betting odds go, take Bayern to cover the 1.5-goal spread on the Asian handicap market.

Bundesliga: Bayern Blitz Shell-Shocked Borussia

Bayern Munich 5-0 Borussia Dortmund

It was described by some as the ‘biggest game of the season in Europe’.

The scene was set in Bavaria for a potential title decider, the likes of which the Bundesliga had not seen for some time.

Indeed, it was 2012 that Borussia Dortmund, then managed by Jurgen Klopp, managed to edge a thrilling title race, inspired by the goals of Robert Lewandowski on their way to a league and cup double.

As so often has happened, it was a short-lived reign as Bayern Munich have gone onto win the last six titles and signed Dortmund stars, Lewandowksi included, along the way.

This season, however, has been slightly different.

At the start of December, the title race looked to be over with Dortmund nine points clear at the top, before Bayern took advantage of the stuttering form of their rivals to claw back the deficit including a run of six straight wins.

Although Dortmund title jitters struck, particularly when they inexplicably threw away a three goal lead at home to Hoffenheim, they found themselves back on top as they travelled to the Allianz Arena.

A 1-1 draw at Freiburg for the champions last week, coupled with a late Paco Alcacer show as the yellow and blacks beat Wolfsburg, meant Dortmund had the advantage before kick-off to regain the initiative ahead of the 100th Klassiker.

Highlights of the Game

The last time Dortmund – or any other team – were ahead of Bayern after 27 games of the season was back in 2012 so there was genuine hope a good result here could pave the way for a title triumph.

How deluded we were as Dortmund’s former stars again made them pay for not being able to keep hold of their big stars.

Had Mahmoud Dahoud found the net instead of the woodwork after eight minutes, the visitors may have settled down and nerves dissipated.

However, just two minutes later Mats Hummels powered home a header from a corner against his former club and Bayern were on their way.

Seven minutes later and the Bundesliga betting odds turned even further in favour of the champions.

It was a moment which will give Dortmund’s teenage defender Dan-Axel Zagadou nightmares as he passed the ball straight to another of Dortmund’s former favourite sons, Lewandowski, and the Pole does not let such opportunities go begging.

Dortmund had committed self-destruct and Lewandowski, the first player in Bundesliga history to score five goals against a former club, and his team were unforgiving.

Bayern had actually lost the last four clashes with Dortmund when they found themselves behind their rivals in the standings but, 17 minutes in, and this game was all but up.

The underdog leaders simply had no answer as Bayern produced two more Bundesliga 2019 highlights before the break to deflate the visitors.

After Lewandowski saw a shot blocked, Javi Martinez guided the ball into the bottom corner. Then Serge Gnabry was left completely unmarked to head home a Thomas Muller cross.

Lucien Favre’s beleaguered players could do no more than go through the motions in the second period as Bayern eased off the pace.

Yet they still found time to rub salt in the wounds when Lewandowski netted his second a minute from time.

How Dortmund now react will be key as this was as chastising an evening as they could imagine.

Few Sbobet fans will bet against Bayern sealing a seventh consecutive Bundesliga title and, with Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery due to depart, the club is already looking to the future.

They have agreed a club record £68 million deal to sign defender Lucas Hernandez from Atletico Madrid, as well as France international team-mate Benjamin Pavard from Stuttgart for a reported £31 million.

Dortmund may not be able to afford that but need, at the very least, to keep onto the players that have taken them this far to keep alive their dreams of glory.

Right at this moment in time, that seems a long way away.

Key Statistics

Lewandowski is the fifth player (and the first foreigner) to score 200 Bundesliga goals, behind Gerd Muller (365), Klaus Fischer (268), Jupp Heynckes (220) and Manfred Burgsmuller (213).

Lewandowski has scored 15 Klassiker goals: 14 for Bayern and one for Dortmund; one ahead of the great Muller.

Hummels is only the second player to have scored in each of the last 11 Bundesliga seasons - alongside team-mate Franck Ribery.

Bayern have won their past eight home games, the last three by a combined margin of 17-0.

Bayern have scored 20 goals in their last four home league matches against Dortmund.

What’s Next?

Bayern are aiming for a league and German Cup double, after progressing to the semi-finals of the competition by scraping past second-division side Heidenheim.

Dortmund have six league matches remaining also, starting at home to Mainz next weekend (April 13) followed by a visit to SC Freiburg on Easter Day.

Bundesliga: BVB Look to Bounce Back After Der Klassiker Debacle

Borussia Dortmund vs FSV Mainz 05

Borussia Dortmund could have taken one major step toward claiming this year's Bundesliga crown when they went to Munich for Der Klassiker. But instead, they were utterly blitzed by Bayern in a 5-0 demolition which saw them slip back down to second in the table.

That crushing defeat may have dealt a big blow to Dortmund's Bundesliga 2019 betting odds to win the title, but the race isn't completely over just yet. There are still six matches left in the season, and another twist could be just around the corner.

However, Dortmund must bounce back and put their demoralising defeat at Bayern behind them. That begins when they host Mainz, who essentially have nothing left to play for this season, which makes them an ideal opponent for Dortmund.

Talking Points

Dortmund's confidence level

Dortmund's trip to the Allianz was an utter disaster; there's no two ways about it. The game was basically over after Robert Lewandowski scored the second goal, and the 4-0 scoreline at half-time was simply humiliating.

Dortmund captain Marco Reus was understandably frustrated by their "catastrophic" defeat to their main title rivals.

But he must now look to rally his team together following their major setback. Dortmund still have a shot to win the title if Bayern suffer another slip-up, but they need to keep applying the pressure on the leaders.

Manager Lucien Favre also needs to play a major part in getting his young side's shattered confidence back up. The defence, in particular, needs to regroup following last weekend's debacle.

The good news for Dortmund is that they likely won't need to do too much defending against a Mainz side that's not exactly known for taking the fight to their opponents.

On the other side, the Dortmund attack will need to get back on track after getting just four shots up against Bayern.

Dortmund will be hoping that top scorer Paco Alcacer, who missed the Bayern match due to an arm injury, can finally return to the squad and provide a spark.

The Spanish striker, who was last seen scoring two late goals in a win against Wolfsburg, also came off the bench to score in Dortmund's 2-1 win over Mainz back in November.

Going back home should also do the Dortmund attack a world of good. They are undefeated at Signal Iduna Park this Bundesliga season (12 wins, 2 draws) and have scored at least two goals in all 14 of those games.

Mainz's away struggles

Mainz are just waiting for their season to be over. They are currently in 12th in the table, 12 points clear of the relegation zone. With safety all but secure, they essentially nothing have left to play for.

Their lack of motivation has been evident in recent results. They've lost seven of their last nine Bundesliga matches.

Although, they are coming off their biggest win of the season with a 5-0 demolition of Freiburg. Jean-Philippe Mateta fired home a hat-trick as he raised his tally to 10 goals this season.

However, that win came at home, where Mainz's Bundesliga 2019 results have been respectable. Away from home, though, it's been a completely different story.

Mainz have lost nine of their 14 Bundesliga matches away from home this season while scoring a mere 12 goals. They've dropped their last five away matches in a row, finding the back of the net just twice in those games.

And like Dortmund, Mainz were also on the receiving end of a walloping by Bayern Munich as they got crushed 6-0 at the Allianz last month.

History

Unsurprisingly, the recent head-to-head record between Dortmund and Mainz has been pretty one-sided. Dortmund have won 13 of their last 17 meetings in the Bundesliga, with two draws and two Mainz wins.

However, one of Mainz's two wins over Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park came just last season. Prior to that loss, though, Dortmund had won each of their last five home matches against Mainz.

Betting Tip

??

Borussia Dortmund vs FSV Mainz 05 Borussia Dortmund Asian Handicap -1.75 @ 2.13
April 14, 00:30 (GMT+8)

Dortmund likely couldn't have asked for a better match to help them regroup from the Bayern blowout than Mainz. With the recent history between the two clubs as well as Mainz's horrendous away form, it's all set up for Dortmund to deliver a morale-boosting win in front of their home fans.

SBOBET odds have Dortmund at -1.75 on the Asian handicap market priced at 2.13. But with the home side looking to exorcise the demons of last week, there's a good chance they win by a much more comfortable margin.

Bundesliga: Bayern’s Steely Focus now on Dusseldorf

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Bayern Munich

FC Bayern continues its quest to win a record seventh successive Bundesliga this weekend when they take on Fortuna Dusseldorf at the 54,000 capacity Esprit Arena.

This will be a cracking game for SBOBET Bundesliga fans, probably with a few goals and possibly with an upset. Fortuna has disturbed the odds a few times already on its return to the top flight, and with no risk of relegation the hosts will play with freedom in front of a passionate crowd.

The reigning champions are in superb form, taking ten points from the last four league games and scoring for fun. But they will need to be at, or near their best to win in Dusseldorf, with the added pressure of second placed Borussia Dortmund playing at home to Mainz on Saturday, and likely to return to the top of the table before Die Roten play.

 


 

 

Talking Points

Fortuna loves a big game

They adore their football in Dusseldorf and now they are back in the big time, after promotion last season, they are having a ball. Sitting pretty in tenth place the hosts are 16 points above the drop zone and playing with freedom. Head coach Friedhelm Funkel has been with the club for three years now, and leading his side back to the top flight last season was Funkel’s sixth promotion, a record in Germany.

This season he’s lifted his team to great heights and they have rarely been out of the Bundesliga 2019 news, handing out plenty of bloody noses to the top sides. They have taken a point from RB Leipzig and beaten Hoffenheim and BVB, as well as taking a stunning point from FC Bayern in the return fixture, when Dodi Lukebakio completed a hat-rick with a dramatic 93rd minute equaliser.

Fortuna has players who can hurt an opposition. Benito Raman has nine goals, Lukebakio has eight and former Burnley striker Rouwen Hennings has five. He bagged a brace in the first 16 minutes when Fortuna shocked fifth placed Borussia Monchengladbach two weeks ago with a 3-1 win in front of a capacity crowd.

Austrian midfielder Kevin Stoger is an influential figure, making six assists while picking up seven yellow cards.

And Bayern will know they have been in a game – only FC Schalke has picked up more yellow cards than Fortuna this season!

Fortuna Dusseldorf have scored at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 Bundesliga matches

Bayern’s Bundesliga nous

Die Roten is a club which knows how to win Bundesligas.

Kovac’s side has kept its nerve after a sluggish start to the campaign, stalking long time leaders Borussia Dortmund for most of the season and then delivering a near fatal blow with a 5-0 hammering of their rivals last week. But the players know the job is not yet done. Robert Lewandowski is back to his sharpest form, scoring his 21st league goal of the season in that rout, and FC Bayern is blessed with title winning experience, and the likes of Thiago, Serge Gnabry and Joshua Kimmich are unlikely to buckle under the pressure now. And Kovac’s squad could be boosted by the addition of Arjen Robben, returning from injury.

History

Fortuna is a club which has been through tough times, almost reaching rock bottom at the turn of the millennium, slipping as low as the fourth tier of German football, and between 2001 and 2003 they were sponsored by punk band Die Toten Hosen!

But now the good times have returned and their home matches don’t disappoint; the Fortuna faithful hasn’t seen a stalemate all season, watching seven wins and seven defeats.

The head-to-heads don’t auger well for the hosts though. Bayern has won eight of the last ten and there have been two draws.

And the visitors have scored 17 goals in their last four games in all competitions. Meanwhile, Fortuna has won four and lost two in the last six games, all of which have yielded three goals or more.

Betting Tip

??

Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Bayern Munich Over 3.50 goals @1.90
April 14, 20:30(GMT+8)

We expect to see a two goal margin in this game as the Fortuna vs FC Bayern betting odds show clearly, with the hosts at 1.97 to win with a +2.00 start, and FC Bayern at 1.96 with that -2.00 handicap.

FC Bayern is out of the Champions League and so have their full focus on winning yet another Bundesliga title, and the odds suggest this game should be another step towards that aim.

But Fortuna has showed, time and time again, that it has no respect for reputation and we could see some fireworks in Dusseldorf.

I hope so anyway!

Bundesliga: Sancho Double Sees Dortmund Past Mainz

Borussia Dortmund 2-1 FSV Mainz 05

Borussia Dortmund may have been on the wrong end of an embarrassment against Bayern Munich a week ago, but the race for the Bundesliga is far from over. Not with Jadon Sancho in such scintillating form!

The young Englishman is making plenty of people sit up and take notice this season, and his German adventure may yet end up with him scooping the biggest domestic prize available.

Certainly, with some tensions in the champions’ camp, there could be an opportunity for Dortmund to take advantage of a slip-up, which they themselves couldn't afford.

Highlights of the game

Dortmund made only one change from the drubbing a week ago with Julian Weigl coming into the starting line-up.

An early goal would have been the ideal start for the hosts, and only the width of the post prevented that inside seven minutes.

Sancho’s short corner to Mario Gotze saw the ball come off Mainz midfielder Danny Latza and onto the far post before bouncing to safety.

Jacob Bruun Larsen then fired wide before testing visiting goalkeeper Florian Muller after great work by Sancho, as the hosts made an enterprising start.

But the young Englishman was not to be denied and broke the deadlock a few minutes later.

Marius Wolf’s long ball to Gotze was pinpoint and his control and delivery to Sancho warranted a goal. The 19-year-old delivered as he smashed the ball beyond Muller.

Six minutes later and it was that man again.

This time, Gotze, Reus, and Thomas Delaney teamed up. The Danish midfielder cut the ball back to Sancho, who pulled away from his marker to power a left-foot shot home -- with the aid of a deflection.

It could have been three for Dortmund had Bruun Larsen not dragged his shot wide after bursting past Aaron Martin as Lucien Favre’s men took control.

If Dortmund are to end Bayern Munich’s six-year domestic dominance, they need to stay alert at the back. An opening half of home Bundesliga 2019 highlights nearly saw the gloss taken off as they allowed Mainz a big chance in first-half stoppage time.

Jean-Philippe Mateta raced into the box and found Karim Onisiwo, who was unfortunate when his clever turn and flick saw the ball clip the outside of the post.

Spirited Mainz also twice tested Roman Burki early in the second half. The luckless Onisiwo then poked the ball past the home custodian only for it to come back off the post for a second time.

When they needed it the most, good fortune was with Dortmund. While they were under spells of pressure, they managed to hold out until six minutes from time.

Moments after Reus clipped the ball wide after a 1-2 between Sancho and Gotze, Robin Quaison poked the ball home after a scramble in the box. Burki had just made a superb save to deny the lively Onisiwo seconds earlier.

Burki then saved Dortmund's skin in quick succession from substitute Anthony Ujah as they survived to pick up the win.

In their last home game, Paco Alcacer was the last-gasp hero; this time the name of Sancho was the one on most fans’ lips.

Both challengers can win the title, but the Bundesliga 2019 betting odds on Dortmund rely heavily on youth and experience from Sancho and Marco Reus. The Dortmund native has led from the front in this title race with 15 goals and six assists in just 23 appearances.

While this may have been one of his quieter games, his importance to the cause has been underlined by their record with and without him.

When the 29-year-old plays, Dortmund average 2.36 points and score 2.59 goals per Bundesliga game. In his absence, those numbers drop to 2.0 and 1.75 respectively.

Reus firing on all cylinders is crucial to bringing the Bundesliga title back to Dortmund for the first time since 2012.

For the first time in a while, SBOBET fans have a Bundesliga title race on their hands.

Key statistics

Aged 19 years and 19 days old, Sancho is the youngest player to score 11 goals in Bundesliga history.

He has 11 league goals and 13 assists in his 29 league games this season. No player in any of Europe’s five major leagues has more assists than the English wing wizard this season.

Of their 25 meetings, Dortmund have defeated Mainz 14 times in the Bundesliga with Mainz triumphing four times. Mainz won 2-1 at Dortmund last season, the last time they were defeated at home.

The Black and Yellows’ total of 66 points from 29 games is more than Jurgen Klopp’s side had at the same stage in 2010/11 and 2011/12 – campaigns when they were crowned champions.


What’s next?

Dortmund have five matches remaining in the season. They next travel to Freiburg on Easter Day before they take on rivals Schalke in the Revierderby.

As for Mainz, they entertain Fortuna Dusseldorf a week from today, which is followed by a trip to Hannover 96.

Predicting How the Bundesliga Races Play Out

The English Premier League isn't the only league in Europe's Big Five whose title race is going right down to the wire. The Bundesliga title race is still wide open as Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund continue to fight it out for the German crown.

Bayern reclaimed command of the title chase after their dominant win over Dortmund in Der Klassiker. But there's just one point between the two German giants and five matches left, which could provide another twist or two.

And apart from the title, the final Champions League place and the two Europa League spots are also being contested by a host of clubs in a tight race that could have a dramatic finish. There's also the small matter of the relegation play-off place to sort out.

SBOBET Bundesliga fans still have a lot to look forward to in Germany, and here's an in-depth analysis predicting how everything will shake out in the end.

Title Race

Bayern Munich have a one-point lead over Borussia Dortmund with both title contenders down to just five matches remaining. And of the two, it's Bayern who might have the slightly more challenging run-in.

Up next for them is a matchup against in-form Werder Bremen, who have gone undefeated in their last 12 league matches (six wins, six draws). They then face the two bottom clubs in Nurnberg and Hannover. However, they end the season against the bottom half of the top four in RB Leipzig -- who have been in sizzling form of late -- and Eintracht Frankfurt.

As for Dortmund, they next face Freiburg, who recently held Bayern to a 1-1 draw. And after that, they host Schalke in the Revierderby. While Schalke are struggling and down near the relegation zone, they will certainly be up for that game as they look to derail their fierce rivals' title hopes.

Like Bayern, Dortmund also have a date with Werder Bremen and will be travelling to the Weser-Stadion.  They finish out the season against Fortuna Dusseldorf and away against Borussia Monchengladbach, who are on the cusp of a Champions League place.

Between their matches against Bremen, Leipzig, and Frankfurt, it's not a stretch to see Bayern drop points before the end of the season. However, there's an equally good chance Dortmund slip up themselves as the pressure continues to mount.

The Bundesliga 2019 betting odds have Bayern favoured for a reason. As they showed in Der Klassiker, Bayern have the experience and the quality needed to outlast Dortmund and claim their seventh Bundesliga title in a row.

Top 4/Europa League Race

Eintracht Frankfurt are fighting hard to keep their spot in the top 4 of the Bundesliga table

RB Leipzig, who have won eight of their last 11 Bundesliga matches, look secure in third. They're currently six points clear of fourth-placed Eintracht Frankfurt, who've had a brilliant season thanks to a breakout campaign by striker Luka Jovic. However, Frankfurt currently have just a one-point lead over Borussia Monchengladbach in fifth.

Hoffenheim are a further four points back of Gladbach, but Julian Nagelsmann's side are on a roll. They have won three in a row and four of the last five. Meanwhile, seventh-placed Werder Bremen are a point back of Hoffenheim and, as mentioned earlier, their Bundesliga 2019 results have been outstanding.

Leverkusen and Wolfsburg -- who are tied at 45 points -- are both still in the Europa League race, but they have suffered losses in recent weeks which have seen them slide in the table.

Bremen have a brutal run-in as they face Bayern, Dortmund, Hoffenheim, and Leipzig in their final five matches. That will likely see their undefeated run come to an end -- and knock them out of contention for Europe.

Gladbach have a similarly tough stretch which sees them face Leipzig, Hoffenheim, and Dortmund. While they do also face two of the bottom three in Stuttgart and Nurnberg, it will still be tough for them to maintain their top-four bid with that schedule.

That leaves the door open for Hoffenheim to catch Gladbach for fifth, which they will probably do. Hoffenheim have a relatively easy run-in, which includes Schalke, Wolfsburg, Bremen, and Mainz. They also go to Gladbach in a few weeks' time, which should be the match that seals the deal.

In the end, Frankfurt should be able to hold on to fourth after all. They face Wolfsburg, Hertha Berlin, Leverkusen, and Mainz, who have all been piling up the losses late in the season.

Relegation Race

Both Nurnberg and Hannover are as good as gone, which leaves just the relegation play-off place up for grabs. Stuttgart currently occupy that play-off spot in 16th and are six points adrift of 17th-placed Schalke.

While Stuttgart's run-in is relatively manageable -- at Augsburg, Gladbach, at Hertha, Wolfsburg, and at Schalke -- it should be noted that they've won just one of their last 14 Bundesliga matches. It'll take a remarkable turnaround for them to make up the six-point deficit on Schalke, who have a tough final few games themselves.

Bundesliga: Another Bayern Home Domination in the Cards

Bayern Munich vs Werder Bremen

Bayern Munich have control over their own destiny. They currently hold a one-point lead over Dortmund at the top of the table, and if they win each of their last five games, they will win their seventh straight Bundesliga title.

Their final run-in might be a bit more difficult than Dortmund's, but their upcoming fixture might be as close to a guaranteed three points as it gets.

That's because they welcome Werder Bremen, a team they have dominated for over a decade now, to the Allianz Arena.

While Bremen have been among the most in-form teams in the Bundesliga since the New Year, they will face an uphill battle against a Bayern side that's been banging in the goals of late.

 


 

 

Talking Points

Bayern simply dominant at home

Bayern Munich have been in imperious form of late. They picked up yet another dominant 4-1 win last time out away to Fortuna Dusseldorf to maintain their one-point lead atop the table.

Kingsley Coman scored two of the four goals as he looked to get back into the club's good graces after getting into a fight with Robert Lewandowski days before the match.

Bayern have now won 15 of their last 17 Bundesliga matches, with one draw and one loss. They've been scoring goals for fun as well, banging home four or more goals in five of their last six contests.

Their home form has been especially dominant. They've won their last eight matches at the Allianz Arena, with their last three -- against Wolfsburg, Mainz, and Dortmund in Der Klassiker -- coming by a combined score of 17-0.

Robert Lewandowski was surprisingly not part of the goals against Dusseldorf, but he's been in incredible form of late. He's scored nine goals in his last seven games, including five in his last three at home. Meanwhile, James Rodriguez has chipped in with four goals of his own.

Werder Bremen's unbeaten run

Bayern Munich vs Werder Bremen betting odds: Max Kruse is expected to lead Werder Bremen in victory against Bayern Munich?
Max Kruse is determined to throw a threat against Bayern Munich

While Bayern have been simply incredible of late, even they can't lay claim to Werder Bremen's impressive feat. Since the start of 2019, Bremen are the only Bundesliga club that has yet to suffer defeat.

Bremen's Bundesliga 2019 results have consisted of six wins and six draws in 12 matches. Four of those six wins have come in their last five games, including a 2-1 home win over Freiburg in their most recent outing.

Veteran striker Max Kruse and midfielder Davy Klaassen have been the main driving forces behind their recent success. Kruse has six goals and five assists in his last eight appearances, while Klaassen has scored in each of the last three matches.

However, Bremen have not been quite as impressive away from home. They've drawn four of their last five outside the Weserstadion. They also lost in their visits to second-placed Dortmund and third-placed Leipzig.

It will truly be a test of Bremen's defensive resolve to prevent Bayern from continuing their free-scoring ways at the Allianz Arena.

History

The Bayern Munich vs Werder Bremen betting odds are significantly tilted toward Bayern, and the recent history between the two might have something to do about it.

Bayern have won a stunning 16 consecutive Bundesliga matches against Bremen, including the last seven in a row at home.

And if you think it can't get any worse for Werder Bremen, it can. Bayern have scored 4-6 goals in each of those last seven home games against Bremen.

Moreover, Bayern are unbeaten in their last 20 meetings (17 wins, 3 draws), with Bremen's last win coming all the way back in 2008.

Bayern won their first meeting at Werder Bremen this season, 2-1, with Serge Gnabry scoring both goals.

Betting Tip

??

Bayern Munich vs Werder Bremen Bayern Munich Asian Handicap -2.50 @ 2.14
April 20 21:30 (GMT+8)

Clearly, just about all the signs point to another comfortable Bayern win. Their unbelievable record against Bremen -- particularly at home -- is too remarkable to ignore. And the fact that they've been simply irresistible of late at the Allianz only strengthens their chances of producing another massive victory.

While Bremen have been quite impressive this year, it's hard to see them putting up much of a fight against a Bayern side which has the title in its sights. Bremen's winning run is likely coming to an end, but Bayern's utterly dominant home win streak looks set to extend by another game.

I strongly suggest using the SBOBET Asian handicap sports betting market, where Bayern -2.50 is priced at 2.14. Over 4.00 goals, which is priced at 2.11, is also an intriguing bet considering Bayern's recent goalscoring exploits and Bremen's in-form attackers.

There’s No Room for Bundesliga Slip-ups Now

SC Freiburg vs Borussia Dortmund

They are not making it easy for themselves - far from it in fact.

However, Borussia Dortmund have a real chance of ending Bayern Munich’s six-year domestic dominance.

As we enter the final stages of the Bundesliga campaign, Lucien Favre’s men remain in the hunt for a first title since 2012.

Yet it is exactly fixtures like this where they have struggled in the past and cannot afford to slip up this time around.

 


 

 

Talking Points

They had some nervous moments late on but Dortmund overcame Mainz last weekend thanks to a super show from the young talent Jadon Sancho.

Now they need a similar result, particularly as they will be playing after Munich and find themselves four points adrift.

Although Freiburg have not won in four matches, they held Bayern to a 1-1 draw a little over a fortnight ago, so the visitors will know this encounter will provide a challenge.

Raphael Guerreiro and Christian Pulisic, who has agreed a move to sign for Chelsea next season, both missed out last weekend and in the 5-0 drubbing to Bayern a fortnight ago.

And in further good news for the challengers, top scorer Paco Alcacer will hope to make it off the bench at the very least. He missed the Bayern game through injury and watched as an unused substitute against Mainz but has three goals in his last two starts.

In goalkeeper Roman Bürki, Maximilian Philipp and Ömer Toprak, there are three former Freiburg players who will be keen to remind their former employers of their talents, while Favre’s team will be guaranteed Champions League football next season should they avoid defeat.

Avoiding defeat is unlikely to be enough, however, as only victory will realistically suffice.

In contrast, Freiburg may well be without their joint-top scorer Nils Petersen who isn’t expected to recover in time.

[SC Freiburg are unbeaten in their last four home matches in Bundesliga
Christian Streich giving instruction from the touchline

Christian Streich’s side will miss him but will still pose a threat at set-pieces. They have been one of the Bundesliga most dangerous sides at set-pieces this term and last season Freiburg hit a league-high 18 of their 32 goals (56.3 per cent) from dead-balls.

They will certainly hope Luca Waldschmidt is back. Twelve different players have scored for Freiburg so far this season but it’s Petersen and Waldschmidt who have accounted for 16 of the south-west club’s 39 leagues goals.

The expectation is for a Dortmund triumph – can they deliver when the pressure is on?

History

You have to go back to May 2010 for the last time Freiburg defeated Dortmund. That was a 3-1 success. Since then, the clubs have met on 15 occasions with two draws and Dortmund winning the other 13 times.

Both those matches were last season. This corresponding fixture ended goalless before Freiburg snatched a 2-2 draw at the Signal Iduna Park thanks to a Petersen double.

In fact, it would have been more had Jeremy Toljan not scored a last minute equaliser.

Earlier this season, Dortmund ran out 2-0 winners with captain Marco Reus (penalty) and Alcacer on target.

Dortmund are unbeaten in their last 15 matches against Freiburg, but Favre has not won in Germany's sunniest city in four attempts as a coach (drawn one, lost three).

Betting Tip

??

SC Freiburg vs Borussia Dortmund Borussia Dortmund, Asian Handicap -1.00 @ 1.92
April 21, 21:30 (GMT+8)

The SBOBET Bundesliga betting odds on the title race remain intriguing and close to call.

There’s nothing close about what is available for this one though.

Dortmund are priced 1X2 @ 1.53 and Asian Handicap odds offers prices of -1.00 @ 1.89 and -1.25 @ 2.20.

In contrast, as the Black Forest club look for the win that would secure their safety for another season with room to spare, they are priced 1X2 @ 5.80. Even the draw is offered at an unlikely @ 4.20.

Asian Handicap on a Freiburg success sees bets of +1.00 @ 2.04 and + 1.75 @ 2.33.

If you expect goals in a contest in which sides have been far from convincing at the back, then look at over 3.00 goals @ 2.00 or over 3.25 goals @ 2.29.

There’s also total goal 2-3 @ 2.06 and total goal 4-6 @ 2.75 to assess, while the Double Chance or Draw – Freiburg or Draw – is offered @ 2.39.

A repeat of last season’s draw in this fixture – correct score 0-0 – is available @ 16.00. For Dortmund to repeat their victory earlier in the season – correct score 0-2 – you will find odds of @ 8.00.

Anything other than victory and the prize drifts closer to Munich.

Bundesliga: Will Revierderby Be Dortmund’s Title Undoing?

Borussia Dortmund vs Schalke 04

Borussia Dortmund are doing their part to keep the Bundesliga title race drama going as long as possible. After their loss to Bayern, Dortmund have won their last two matches to keep the pressure on the Bavarians.

Dortmund will have to keep their winning run going for the remainder of the season and hope Bayern slip up. Their next assignment will be a big one as it sees them host bitter rivals Schalke to the Signal Iduna Park for the second Revierderby of the season.

Schalke have had a horrific campaign and don't figure to pose much of a threat to Dortmund on paper. But despite their poor form as well as the lopsided Bundesliga 2019 betting odds, you never quite know what can happen in a derby, which is why SBOBET Bundesliga fans must stay tuned in to this game.

Talking Points

BVB have bounced back

Dortmund seem to have recovered fairly well following their loss to Bayern in Der Klassiker at the start of the month. They've won their last two games, beating Mainz 2-1 at home and Freiburg 4-0 last weekend.

After bagging a brace against Mainz, Jadon Sancho started the scoring against Freiburg. Marco Reus, Mario Gotze, and Paco Alcacer added the other three second-half goals to secure the convincing win.

It certainly bodes well for Dortmund that all four of their top attacking weapons got on the score sheet and should be in good spirits heading into the derby.

Obviously, the pressure will be on Dortmund to continue keeping the pressure on Bayern atop the table, so only a win at the derby will do.

But luckily, Dortmund will be at home, where they have been unbeatable in the league this season, so some of the pressure should be off of them.

Dortmund possess the best home record in the entire Bundesliga with 13 wins and just two draws. They've also scored 47 goals in their 15 games, getting at least two goals in all of those home matches.

Schalke still struggling

Schalke's horrific season is mercifully almost over. After soaring up to a second-place finish last year, Die Königsblauen have crashed all the way down to 15th, six points clear of the relegation play-off spot.

Interim coach Huub Stevens' side will head into the derby with their recent Bundesliga 2019 results making for tough reading. They've won just one of their last 13 games in all competitions, and 10 of them have ended up in defeat.

Even the Veltins-Arena has not been safe from humiliating defeats. Schalke suffered one of their worst home defeats of the season last weekend as they got trounced 5-2 by Hoffenheim.

Clearly, the only thing that can make this nightmare season worse for Schalke is if they are once again defeated by their bitter rivals, who then go on to win the Bundesliga title.

Since it is the derby and Dortmund's title hopes are on the line, one would think that Schalke should be sufficiently motivated to play spoiler against their rivals. It might not completely make up for this season's failures, but it could certainly help ease the disappointment.

As recent Revierderby results have shown, Schalke have been a real thorn in the side of Dortmund, who should be wary of the threat they pose.

Will it be a win now for Huub Stevens' Schalke 04 against rivals Borussia Dortmund in Bundesliga?

History

The recent history of the Revierderby has been quite competitive. In their last 15 league meetings, Dortmund have won six times, Schalke have won four times, and the two have drawn five times.

Schalke will have very fond memories of their last visit to the Signal Iduna Park last season, which turned into one of the most incredible Revierderbys in recent years. After Dortmund went up 4-0 after just 25 minutes, Schalke stormed back in miraculous fashion to level it up at 4-4 in the final half hour.

Schalke have won just once in their last eight visits to the Westfalenstadion, but they have drawn more games (four) than they've lost (three), which is somewhat promising for them.

Betting Tip

??

Borussia Dortmund vs Schalke 04 Borussia Dortmund Asian Handicap -1.50 @ 1.93

It should be stressed that this match is no sure thing for Dortmund. As poor as Schalke have been this season, nothing can ever be completely ruled out whenever two rivals meet in the derby.

But having said that, it still feels as though Dortmund should win this edition of the Revierderby at home in relatively comfortable fashion.

They certainly have the superior quality to turn Schalke over, especially at home, where Dortmund have been brilliant all season.

Bundesliga: Bayern Trip to Nurnberg No Walk in the Park

Nurnberg vs Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich have been taking care of business late in the season. With their one-point lead over Borussia Dortmund still intact, they're now just four wins away from a seventh straight Bundesliga title.

Dortmund have the Revierderby against Schalke up next this weekend, which could be a potentially tricky matchup. Meanwhile, Bayern could also have a similarly dangerous assignment on their hands.

Based on the Bundesliga 2019 betting odds, it looks as if the leaders should be able to pick up another important victory in their upcoming match against relegation-bound Nurnberg with relative ease.

But despite their inability to win, Nurnberg have made life difficult against some of the top teams in the league when they've visited the Max-Morlock-Stadion this season, and will look to do the same against Bayern.

Talking Points

Nurnberg no pushovers at home

It's been a very rough return to the top flight for Nurnberg. In their first season back in the Bundesliga since 2014, the nine-time German champions are second from bottom in the table and are headed right back down to the second division.

After winning two of their first six league matches, Der Ruhmreiche have won just one of their last 24, with 16 defeats. Their lone win during that span came late last month with a 3-0 win over Augsburg.

Their subsequent Bundesliga 2019 results were back-to-back draws, but those were against the two teams directly above them in the table -- Stuttgart and Schalke. And last weekend, they were comfortably beaten 2-0 at Bayer Leverkusen.

Obviously, Nurnberg's recent form doesn't inspire much confidence. However, they have at least put up some admirable performances in front of their home fans as they've given some of the other top teams a few unexpected headaches.

 


 

 

They've held both Borussia Dortmund and fourth-place Eintracht Frankfurt to draws at home and only lost 1-0 against third-place RB Leipzig.

It will no doubt be a tougher task to disrupt a Bayern side with the title in their sights. But at the very least, Nurnberg will have some confidence heading into the match that they are capable of springing a surprise.

Unbeatable Bayern

Bayern Munich remain on course for another domestic double thanks to back-to-back wins over Werder Bremen. Bayern have now won five games in a row in all competitions and nine of their last 10 Bundesliga matches to maintain their one-point lead over Borussia Dortmund with just four matches remaining.

Bayern's match against Werder Bremen was part of a tricky end-of-season run-in. And so it proved that neither win came easy against a Bremen side that had previously not lost since the start of 2019.

Bayern needed a 75th-minute goal from defender Niklas Sule to beat Bremen side that had gone down to 10 men at home in their Bundesliga matchup. And they needed a somewhat controversial penalty decision to win their DFB Pokal semi-final, 3-2.

Of course, Nurnberg will be a significant step down from Bremen in terms of quality, which should benefit Bayern.

The reigning champions have not been quite as dominant away from home as they have been at the Allianz Arena; they dropped points in a draw away to Freiburg last month and also lost 3-1 against Bayer Leverkusen.

However, they have also picked up dominant away wins over Fortuna Dusseldorf (1-4) and Borussia Monchengladbach (1-5).

It might be difficult to run up that type of scoreline away at Nurnberg, but Bayern should still possess enough quality to escape with the three points that they need.

History

Due to Nurnberg's recent Bundesliga absence, their meeting against Bayern in December was their first since 2014. Bayern strolled to a dominant 3-0 victory at the Allianz.

That win extended Bayern's dominance over Nurnberg. The Bavarians have gone 13 games undefeated against Nurnberg, with nine wins and four draws.

However, Nurnberg have a history of giving Bayern some problems. All four of their draws against the German giants have been at home.

Betting Tip

??

Nurnberg vs Bayern Munich Nurnberg Asian Handicap +2.50 @ 1.92
April 29, 00:00 (GMT+8)

SBOBET odds currently have Nurnberg priced at a whopping 18.00 to win in the 1X2 market. However, it seems unlikely that Bayern will find it that easy.

For one, Bayern are coming off two fairly challenging matches against Werder Bremen, so they could potentially be a bit leggy in this match after their DFB Pokal semi-final in midweek. And as mentioned earlier, Nurnberg do have a habit of making life tougher than expected against the top sides.

With those factors in mind, Nurnberg look like a great shout in the Asian handicap market to keep it relatively close against Bayern.

Bundesliga: Hoffenheim’s Big Chance to Grab European Spot

Bayern Munich vs Hannover 96

Bayern Munich had the opportunity to all but secure yet another Bundesliga title after Borussia Dortmund utterly collapsed in the Revierderby. However, the leaders also suffered their own slip-up as they could only draw against second-from-bottom side Nurnberg.

While the Bundesliga 2019 odds still favour Bayern to win a seventh consecutive title with just three matches remaining in the season, they will be eager to avoid another misstep as they host the team at the bottom of the relegation "race," Hannover.

Defeat would put another nail in Hannover's coffin as they edge closer to a return to the second division. But after going on a disastrous losing skid, the last-placed side has actually strung together a couple of decent results and will look to keep that going against the German giants.

Talking Points

Bayern get a wake-up call

After Dortmund got demolished by Schalke in their derby match, Bayern could've gone a commanding four points clear atop the table if they beat Nurnberg, which seemed like a simple enough task.

But as SBOBET noted, Nurnberg was not going to be a walk in the park for the champions, and so it proved as they only escaped with a 1-1 draw.

Surely, though, Bayern will have learned their lesson and not make the same mistake again in their next match against Hannover.

The fact that Bayern will be at home just about guarantees victory given how dominant Bayern have been at the Allianz. The Bavarians have won each of their last nine Bundesliga matches at home.

They've scored at least three goals in six of those games and five or more in three, which is certainly impressive. But even more impressive is that their defence has kept clean sheets in seven of those nine games, including five in a row.

With all of those factors in mind, it would likely take something extraordinary for Bayern to not come away with all three points in convincing fashion at home.

Hannover delaying inevitable drop

Hannover's time in the German top-flight is coming to an end. After gaining promotion in 2017, Die Roten are going back down as they are dead-last in the table with just 18 points in 31 matches.

It's simply been a dreadful season for Hannover, who have suffered a lot of losing. They recently went on a stretch of 12 losses in 13 games, including eight in a row. However, their Bundesliga 2019 results have finally been trending upward of late, which has delayed their seemingly inevitable relegation.

They put an end to their horrendous run when they got a goalless draw at Hertha Berlin. And last week, they finally won their first game since early February as they beat Mainz, 1-0. That was just Hannover's fourth win of the season, all of which have come at home.

On the other hand, their away form has been quite awful. Aside from going winless, they have also allowed 40 goals, which is tied for the most in the league. Their goalless draw against Hertha was their first away clean sheet all season.

While Hannover have successfully kept back-to-back clean sheets, it's highly unlikely that they can continue that run at the Allianz, with Bayern unlikely to repeat the same mistakes they made against another relegation-bound side in Nurnberg last week.

Can Bayern preotect their lead and retain the Bundesliga title?
Hannover 96 players in action against Borussia Dortmund

History

Bayern and Hannover have met 57 times in total. Unsurprisingly, Bayern have a massive advantage with 41 wins. Hannover have won just nine times, and there have been seven draws.

The recent history between Bayern and Hannover is just about as one-sided as it gets. Bayern have won the last 12 meetings in a row between the two teams.

Hannover's last victory against Bayern came in 2011. Meanwhile, their last win over Bayern in Munich came all the way back in 2006.

Betting Tip

??

Bayern Munich vs Hannover 96 Under 4.50 Goals @ 1.93
May 04, 21:30 (GMT+8)

SBOBET currently has Hannover priced at an astronomical 44.00 to beat Bayern away, which tells you all you need to know about just how improbable a Bayern defeat figures to be.

After their misstep against Nurnberg, expect Bayern to be a lot more ruthless in terms of taking care of business at home. That likely means a lot of goals from the hosts.

But just how many? There's the rub. Bayern recently went a three-game stretch where they put at least five goals past their opponents at home, including Dortmund. And while Hannover are unlikely to keep another clean sheet, they have at least shown that they are not just going to roll over and get smashed.

Therefore, it seems like the most logical play is to bet on the total to go under 4.50 goals in this game, which Bayern should still win comfortably.

Bundesliga: Hoffenheim’s Big Chance to Grab European Spot

Borussia Monchengladbach vs TSG Hoffenheim

The fourth and final Champions League spot in the Bundesliga table is still there for the taking. But if their recent performances are any indication, Borussia Monchengladbach don't appear too keen to grab it.

Gladbach have been in awful form for a couple of months now, which has put not only their prospects for fourth, but for any European football next season in some peril.

They now host one of the teams who could potentially go and grab their European place: Hoffenheim. Die Kraichgauer, who had been in fine form of late, are eager to bounce back after suffering a shock thrashing last weekend.

Talking Points

Gladbach can't get their act together

It's been a rough couple of months to say the least for Borussia Monchengladbach. They were once riding high in the league, and most Bundesliga 2019 predictions would have tipped them to return to the Champions League next year.

But the wheels have quickly come off Dieter Hecking's side this season as their Bundesliga 2019 results have fallen off a cliff.

Since Feb. 9, Gladbach have won just two of their 11 Bundesliga matches, with three draws and six defeats. The nine-point haul they picked up during that span was tied for the fourth-worst in the league, ahead of only Schalke as well as the relegation-bound duo of Hannover and Nurnberg.

Moreover, Gladbach have scored just eight goals in those 11 games, tying Hannover and Nurnberg for the fewest during that time.

One would think that being at home would be to Gladbach's advantage, but it's actually quite the opposite. Gladbach have gone winless at Borussia-Park since late January, losing four and drawing two of their last six home matches.

To be fair, two of those matches were tough assignments against leaders Bayern Munich and third-placed RB Leipzig. But they should still be doing much a better job of protecting their home turf.

 


 

 

Hoffenheim hoping to bounce back

Julian Nagelsmann's time at Hoffenheim is coming to a close. But the 31-year-old manager is still looking to provide the club with one parting gift in the form of European football next season.

Hoffenheim are still very much in the mix for that Europa League spot thanks to a strong run at the end of the season. They recently went on a six-match unbeaten run, with five wins and one draw.

However, Hoffenheim's impressive streak ended with a thud last weekend as they were demolished 4-1 at home by Wolfsburg.

But despite that significant setback, Hoffenheim can still leapfrog Gladbach in the table and into the Europa League places if they can bounce back and beat the hosts.

Hoffenheim have put up some fine performances away from home in recent weeks. They thrashed Augsburg 4-0 and smashed Schalke 5-2 in back-to-back away matches. Hoffenheim have scored 38 goals away from home this season, just one goal behind Bayern for the most in the Bundesliga.

Ishak Belfodil, who has been in amazing form of late. Over his last six outings, he's recorded seven goals with three assists.

Hoffenheim have also given some of the top teams a few headaches when they've come to visit. They held both Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig to draws in back-to-back weeks in February. They were also winning against fourth-placed Eintracht Frankfurt, but they went down to 10 men and subsequently lost 3-2 in dramatic fashion.

That was Hoffenheim's first and only Bundesliga away defeat since their first two away matches of the season.

History

Hoffenheim's recent history against Gladbach isn't particularly great. Over their last 10 meetings, Hoffenheim have won just once, with Gladbach getting four wins and five draws. Their first matchup of the season was an entertaining goalless draw.

It's also been a while since Hoffenheim have won at Gladbach; their last victory came all the way back in 2012. Over the last six meetings between the two at Borussia-Park, Gladbach have three wins with three draws. Hoffenheim have held Gladbach twice in their last two trips.

They had a great opportunity to finally snap their winless drought at Gladbach last season. However, they conceded two late goals as the two played out an exciting 3-3 draw.

Betting Tip

??

Borussia Monchengladbach vs TSG Hoffenheim 1X2 Hoffenheim Win @ 2.30
May 04, 21:30(GMT+8)

SBOBET tips Hoffenheim to finally end their Gladbach hoodoo this time around. Gladbach have just been awful for the past couple of months and don't inspire any confidence, especially at home. Meanwhile, Hoffenheim have been quite impressive on their travels and have more than a few goals in them.

I predicted that Hoffenheim would eventually overtake Gladbach late in the season, and they do just that by beating them away from home.

Bundesliga: BVB must Fight to the End

Werder Bremen vs Borussia Dortmund

It may look like the Bundesliga title could be slipping away from Borussia Dortmund, but until the fight is well and truly over there is no stopping now.

After a superb season, Lucien Favre’s side has suffered two body blows which have left it trailing FC Bayern by two points as we enter Matchday 32.  Bundesliga Werder Bremen vs Borussia Dortmund is the clash of the weekend and a must win tie for Die Schwarzgelben.

Only a surprise draw for the champions against relegation threatened Nurnberg has kept Favre’s men in the hunt after they followed up a 5-0 thumping at the hands of Bayern early in April with a shock 2-4 reversal to FC Schalke last week.

The hosts will be hoping to end a sequence of three defeats, in front of a passionate crowd at the Weser-Stadion and BVB will need to be at their best. The Werder Bremen vs Borussia Dortmund betting odds point to a close game and it’s a tough test the visitors simply must overcome to keep their fading title hopes alive.

Talking Points

Werder in Kruse control

The hosts don’t have a lot to worry about as the Bundesliga comes to a climax, comfortably sitting in ninth and unlikely to make a Europa place after their recent blip. In all fairness two of the three defeats came at the hands of FC Bayern, one in the league and one in the DFB Semi Final; but more worrying for coach Florian Kohfeldt was a 4-1 thumping at the hands of mid table Fortuna Dusseldorf last week.

Werder Bremen set their eyes for the win for a Europa League spot against Bundesliga title chasing BVB
Max Kruse struggling to keep the ball against Bayern Munich

Striker Max Kruse has been the main man this season and he scored Werder’s only goal in that game with a first half penalty. That made it 11 goals for the season to add to his nine assists and the front man has caught the attention of some of Europe’s top clubs. He’s already the subject of transfer speculation, with Champions League semi-finalists Tottenham Hotspur reported to be considering a move to take him to the Premier League.

Just behind Kruse, former Everton attacking midfielder Davy Klassen has proven pedigree and, alongside Milot Rashica, the Dutch international provides creative support for Kruse.

While they have a potent striking edge, Die Werderaner were in some disarray at the back in the defeat in Dusseldorf, and a repeat performance of that will surely result in an away win.

Derby damage for BVB

Following two good wins Borussia prepared to take on local rivals FC Schalke 04 full of confidence, but the Revierderby turned out to be a complete disaster. It all started so well when Mario Gotze rose to head home a cross from Jadon Sancho but Schalke struck twice against the run of play before the break. Then, in the second half, it all went pear shaped for Favre and his team. First Marco Reus received a red card for an uncharacteristic bad foul on Suat Serdar, then after Schalke made it 3-1 from the free-kick, it wasn’t long before Marius Wolf followed Reus down the tunnel after another nasty challenge on Serdar.

 


 

 

I’m not sure what the defensive midfielder had done to annoy his hosts, but Serdar had given his side a massive numerical advantage as they saw out a 2-4 win.

A bright note for BVB has been that Jadon Sancho’s stock has been rising by the week. The young England winger is way out ahead in the Bundesliga assists table with 14 to his name and he’s undoubtedly one of Europe’s hottest talents. And with 17-goal Paco Alcacer available as well as Christian Pulisic and Axel Witsel, the visitors’ team is still dripping with talent.

History

The head to head Werder Bremen vs Borussia Dortmund results tell the story of a well contested rivalry over the last three decades. Of the 58 games completed since 1992, BVB has won 28 to Werder Bremen’s 20 and their have been ten draws.

Dortmund won the earlier Bundesliga game, 2-1, back in December, but Werder Bremen put Die Schwarzgelben out of the DFB Pokal Cup in the Round of 16.

This season represented the best chance in years for BVB to add to their eight Bundesliga titles, but they are now in the last chance saloon.

Betting Tip

??

Werder Bremen vs Borussia Dortmund Borussia Dortmund 1X2 @ 2.19

The latest SBOBET odds have Borussia out at 6.80 to win the title now, but they must keep the faith having led the race for so long. The big question is whether they have regained their composure after losing it so badly in the Revierderby?

With the hosts at 2.94 to win and with less to motivate them I expect BVB to get their challenge back on the rails and, for an alternative bet, 1-2 is available at 8.25.

Bundesliga: Dusseldorf Aim To Do The Double Over Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund vs Fortuna Dusseldorf

Barring an epic collapse by Bayern Munich in the last two weeks of the season, Borussia Dortmund are not going to win the Bundesliga. They are now four points behind the leaders after dropping points in back-to-back weeks against Schalke and Werder Bremen.

With the title all but gone, Dortmund don't have much else left to play for except pride. They will play their final home game of the season against midtable Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Dusseldorf managed to survive their first season in the top-flight since 2013. And while most Bundesliga 2019 predictions likely won't fancy them to leave Signal Iduna Park with a win, they have already defied the odds against Dortmund once this season -- and will look to do so again.

Talking Points

BvB blow their title chance

In a vacuum, Dortmund have had quite an impressive season. Few expected them to challenge for the Bundesliga title given their relative youth and inexperience. But they defied those expectations and pushed hard Bayern all the way.

However, it's become clear that Dortmund just lack that mental strength to dethrone Bayern. It was evident in their humiliating defeat in Der Klassiker. And it manifested itself once again over the last couple of weeks, first in their Revierderby meltdown against Schalke and then in their 2-2 draw against Werder Bremen last weekend.

Things were looking good for Dortmund in the derby as they took an early lead. But they quickly went behind at the half-hour mark, and then all hell broke loose with the Marco Reus and Marius Wolf red cards in the second half.

Despite missing the suspended Reus, though, Dortmund again surged to a 2-0 first-half lead at Bremen. However, they were again unable to hold that lead as both keeper Roman Burki and defender Manuel Akanji committed costly errors which led to Bremen's two goals.

Burki let a tame Kevin Mohwald shot slip right between his legs, while Akanji failed to shepherd the ball into touch, which gave Claudio Pizarro the chance to smash home the equaliser.

With the title virtually gone, it remains to be seen whether Dortmund can still pick themselves up for this match against Dusseldorf.

 


 

 

Dusseldorf don't do dull

Fortuna Dusseldorf's first season back in 1. Bundesliga has been a success. Friedhelm Funkel's side find themselves in 10th place with 41 points, which is a respectable feat for a promoted side.

Dusseldorf are coming off a 1-1 draw away at struggling Freiburg last weekend. That result was surprising because of the lack of goals that were scored.

Dusseldorf have been notable this season in their involvement in a number of high-scoring affairs. Prior to the Freiburg draw, 10 of their previous 11 games saw three or more goals, and six saw four or more.

While Dusseldorf's away form has been patchy, they have at least been consistent in finding the back of the net. They have scored in each of the last five away matches, putting up an impressive 10 goals during that span.

Dusseldorf have also produced two of the most surprising Bundesliga 2019 results of the season. They drew 3-3 with Bayern in a wild game at Allianz Arena back in November, and they beat Dortmund 2-1 at home in December.

With their Bundesliga survival secured, Dusseldorf should be able to play with no pressure at Signal Iduna Park. They've already shown they're capable of beating Dortmund, and given the BvB's recent stumbles, they could do so again.

History

Borussia Dortmund and Fortuna Dusseldorf have faced off 44 times over the years. Dortmund hold the slight edge with 20 wins, while Dusseldorf have 15.

But aside from preseason friendlies, the two sides have not faced each other much over the past few years since Dusseldorf have not been in the Bundesliga. But when the two did meet earlier this season, Dusseldorf picked up a shock 2-1 win at home.

Betting Tip

??

Borussia Dortmund vs Fortuna Dusseldorf Total Goal 4-6 @ 1.99
May 11, 21:30 (GMT+8)

It's hard not to see a good number of goals being scored in this match, one way or another. Dusseldorf aren't the only side that's been involved in some high-scoring affairs. Of Dortmund's last 14 Bundesliga games, nine have had four or more goals, including four of the last five.

There have been Dortmund's defence for most of the season, and their performances of late have only helped justify those concerns. If Dusseldorf get at that Dortmund backline, they should be able to create some good chances.

At the same time, though, Dortmund are also more than capable of slicing up Dusseldorf's defence even with Reus missing. That's why SBOBET tips the total goals to reach 4-6, which is priced at 1.99.

Bundesliga: Bayern on the Brink of 7th Straight Title

RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich's visit to third-place RB Leipzig could have been a pivotal game in the Bundesliga title race. But with Borussia Dortmund's inability to keep pace in the last few weeks, the pressure is off Bayern as they more or less have another championship all wrapped up.

If the leaders win at Leipzig -- and the Bundesliga 2019 odds have them favoured to do so -- they will officially clinch their seventh consecutive Bundesliga crown with one game to spare. They could also clinch if Dortmund lose to Fortuna Dusseldorf, which they've already done this season.

Leipzig have been in absolutely fabulous form, though, and will not want to surrender any momentum against Bayern ahead of their DFB Pokal final scheduled in a couple weeks'  time.

 


 

 

Talking Points

Leipzig in fine form

RB Leipzig lost their opening match after the winter break, going down 1-0 at home to Borussia Dortmund. Since then, though, they've been simply unbeatable, winning 13 out of their last 17 games in all competitions. That includes the DFB Pokal, where they will face off against Bayern in the final.

As for their Bundesliga 2019 results, they have won 10 of their last 14, the lone team to remain undefeated during that span of time. And the 34 points they picked up were second only to their next opponents, Bayern, who had 35 during that same stretch.

The Leipzig defence has helped fuel their amazing unbeaten run. They've conceded a mere nine goals in those last 14 games, three goals fewer than Bayern.

However, three of those nine goals came in a shock 3-3 draw at Mainz last week, which snapped their six-match winning streak. Leipzig had gone 3-1 up inside 50 minutes but surprisingly gave up two late goals to drop the two points.

Perhaps a return home is what Leipzig need to bounce back. They've won their last three games at the Red Bull Arena, scoring nine goals and conceding just one.

Bayern almost there

It has been far from a vintage season for Bayern Munich. The German giants have been nowhere near as dominant as they have been in years' past as manager Niko Kovac has had his problems in his first -- and possibly only -- year in charge. Former Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui has recently been linked with the Bayern job.

However, Bayern have still been good enough to outlast a young Dortmund side which finally ran out of steam in the last few weeks in one of the tighter title races in a while.

Bayern bounced back from their shock draw against relegated Nurnberg by comfortably beating bottom side Hannover at home, 3-1. It was Bayern's 10th win in their last 12 league matches; they drew the other two games.

Bayern have been a little less consistent away from home, though. Their only loss this year came away at Leverkusen. And while they have hammered sides like Borussia Monchengladbach and Fortuna Dusseldorf away from the Allianz, they have also suffered setbacks in the form of draws against unheralded sides in Freiburg and Nurnberg.

Although, a case could be made that those results were merely due to complacency. There's unlikely to be such a lax mentality when Bayern visit Leipzig with the chance to wrap up another championship.

History

With RB Leipzig only being in existence for less than a decade, there is obviously not much history between them and Bayern. The two sides have met each other just six times in total, with Bayern winning five and Leipzig one.

However, Leipzig's one win came in Bayern's visit to the Red Bull Arena last season. The two teams' only other Bundesliga meeting in Leipzig was a wild 5-4 shootout in 2017, which Bayern won. Leipzig also held Bayern to a draw at home in the 2017-18 DFB Pokal and lost on penalties.

Bayern just about edged Leipzig in their first meeting at the Allianz Arena this season as Franck Ribery scored the lone goal of the game.

Betting Tip

??

RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich 1X2 RB Leipzig Win @ 4.50
May 11, 21:30(GMT+8)

It's the end of the season, so why not go out on a big swing? As has been laid out above, Leipzig have simply been phenomenal over the past couple of months. Their defence -- excluding last week's hiccup -- has been airtight and should give Bayern's attack some problems.

If there's a fixture where this good-but-not-great Bayern side can suffer defeat, it's away from home against an in-form Leipzig side that are at the very least as good as the leaders.

SBOBET odds currently have a Leipzig win in the 1X2 market priced at 4.50, and unlike most of Bayern's opponents, it has a legitimate shot of paying out when it's all said and down.

Look for Leipzig to beat Bayern, who might have to wait another week to wrap up the title.

Dortmund Keep Bundesliga Hopes Alive

Borussia Dortmund 3-2 Fortuna Dusseldorf

Borussia Dortmund have taken the Bundesliga title race to the last week with a thrilling win over Fortuna Dusseldorf at the Signal Iduna Park.

Friedhelm Funkel’s visitors put up a good fight, but Lucien Favre steered his side to a deserved win. Christian Pulisic headed the hosts in front just before the break and then a dramatic second half saw Fortuna level, and then miss a penalty to let the hosts off the hook.

There was no escaping the fact that the other Bundesliga 2019 updates of the day, namely FC Bayern’s trip to third placed RB Leipzig, would have as big an impact on BVB as their own performance would. And when the news came in that the champions had drawn it made this result mean a whole lot more.

The Bundesliga 2019 betting odds have been firmly in favour of the Bavarians since their 0-5 destruction of BVB in April, but Favre’s team’s hopes are still alive.

Highlights of the game

Dortmund’s catastrophic derby defeat at home to Schalke delivered a near fatal blow to their title hopes, and the passionate fans in the Yellow Wall tried to lift their heroes up for one last push.

But it was Die Flingeraner which had the first attempt on goal, when Markus Suttner centred for Dodi Lukebakio to head towards the bottom right corner but Marwin Hitz was equal to it. That awoke the hosts and Paco Alcacer put Pulisic through on goal but his shot flew wide. Raphael Guerreiro then tested Michael Rensing with a low shot which the Fortuna keeper got down well to save.

The visitors weren’t in Dortmund just to watch though, and Matthias Zimmerman put in a dangerous cross but Dawid Kownacki headed high and wide.

Thomas Delaney and Guerreiro both had shots from distance for BVB but neither troubled Rensing in the Fortuna goal.

Jadon Sancho has been a revelation in this year’s Bundesliga, leading the assists chart with 14 before this match, but Favre started with the young English star on the bench. And the fans in the Yellow Wall were starting to question the wisdom of that as half time approached. But then, on 41 minutes, they erupted as Pulisic broke the deadlock. Delaney headed the ball into the danger area and the young American stole in to nod home into the bottom right corner from close range.

There was a buzz around the Signal Iduna Park when the news came that the first half in Leipzig was goalless, which meant the race for the Bundesliga was not yet over.

If the first half was a fairly cagey affair, the second began at a hectic pace and the visitors silenced the home crowd just two minutes after the break. The dangerous Suttner fired a cross in and skipper Oliver Fink planted his header beyond Hitz and into the net.

Dortmund fought back quickly though, and were ahead again, on 53 minutes, when Delaney had a shot blocked but found the net with his second attempt. And then just before the hour there was high drama. Lukebakio was brought down by Hitz and the referee pointed to the penalty spot, but the BVB keeper stayed down injured.

When he got to his feet two minutes later Lukebakio had been waiting too long, and when he took the spot kick he side footed it wide of the right post.

That inspired the home side to get on the front foot and both Mario Gotze and Axel Witsel had shots charged down, while Favre brought Sancho on to loud cheers.  And Fortuna went down to ten men when Adam Bodzek received his marching orders on 82 minutes for a nasty foul on Sancho, to end Fortuna’s hopes.

Gotze made the points safe in the second minute of injury time but here was still time for Dawid Kownacki to pull one back with virtually the last kick.

Key statistics

BVB and Fortuna came into the match with identical recent records of three wins, two defeats and a draw in the last six games. Dusseldorf were trying to do a league double over their hosts but at pre-match SBOBET odds of 7.80 this was always a big ask.

Dortmund just about deserved their half time lead, having enjoyed 60 per cent possession and leading the shot count by six to two.

But the second half exploded into life; and after Fortuna missed a penalty chance and went down to ten men the points were destined to stay in Dortmund.

What’s next?

BVB will finish with a difficult trip away to Borussia Monchengladbach. A poor run of one win in six games meant the hosts let their grip on a Champions League place slip; but today they kept them alive with a thumping 0-4 win away to Nurnberg.

FC Bayern are at home to another Champions League chasing side when Eintracht Frankfurt visit the Allianz Arena. Win that and the title stays in Bavaria.

Meanwhile, Die Flingeraner will end with a home match against relegated Hannover 96.

Bundesliga: Down to the Wire in Deutschland

RB Leipzig 0-0 Bayern Munich

After their victory over Hamburg last weekend, coupled with nearest rivals Borussia Dortmund being held by Werder Bremen, this was billed by many as the day Bayern Munich would clinch a seventh successive Bundesliga title.

The SBOBET Bundesliga betting odds predicted it too, even though this was always going to be a tough fixture.

And so it proved as RB Leipzig consolidated third spot and held the champions to ensure the most thrilling title race for years in Germany will go down to the final day of the season next weekend.

Highlights of the game

Perhaps a goalless draw meant both sides didn’t want to give too much away ahead of their German Cup Final clash in a fortnight’s time.

Either way, we weren’t short of Bundesliga highlights despite the lack of goals.

The Red Bull Arena anticipated an exciting contest and it got one.

Bayern fans received a pre-match boost when top scorer Robert Lewandowski was passed fit to play, despite a scare in training.

That certainly helped the visitors who were already missing Manuel Neuer, Javi Martinez and James Rodriguez.

Yet there was no chance of Leipzig taking it easy, even if they have already secured Champions League football for next season, as they extended their unbeaten run to 15 matches.

From the first whistle, the hosts were full of energy and Timo Werner was a lively outlet.

Bayern had early chances, however, with Serge Gnabry hitting a tame effort straight at Peter Gulacsi and Lewandowski firing wide after the home keeper managed to pressure the Polish frontman.

Up at the other end, Yussuf Poulsen saw a shot blocked by Mats Hummels who then crucially deflected a Marcel Sabitzer attempt to safety.

A Gnabry volley and Werner shot raised brief alarm bells at either end as a feisty opening half drew to a close.

Five minutes into the second period came the main talking point of the afternoon.

A Gnabry cross was only half cleared by Ibrahima Konate and Leon Goretzka sent a smart volley into the net only for Lewandowski to be ruled marginally offside, courtesy of VAR.

It prompted Bayern’s best spell of the encounter with the impressive Gulacsi smothering a Thomas Muller cross before Gnabry struck the corner of post and bar – an offside flag subsequently meant it would not have counted anyway.

Wing wizards Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, nearing the end of their Bayern careers, were both brought on as Niko Kovac’s men chased a title-clinching victory.

That looked to have arrived in the closing stages but a combination of Gulacsi and Konate kept out Lewandowski who then fired a free-kick within inches of the goal with the keeper motionless.

Since their destruction of Dortmund a month ago, Bayern have been clear favourites to retain the title.

And while they still are, this result, coupled with Dortmund’s 3-2 success against Dusseldorf, means they are now only two points clear with one game remaining.

A draw in their final league match will be enough to retain their crown, assuming Dortmund do not win by 18 goals!

History is certainly with Bayern but, for now, this title race is still very much alive.

Key statistics

This was Rafinha’s 266th competitive match for Bayern, drawing him level with fellow Brazilian Giovane Elber.

Bayern Munich and Leipzig have both scored 11 times in the first 15 minutes of matches this season – more than any other teams in the German top flight.

Leipzig are unbeaten in their last 15 (won 10, drawn five). That is a new club record.

Gulacsi has kept more clean sheets this season (16) than any other custodian. Bayern stopper Sven Ulreich has four shut-outs in eight league games this term.

Ribery could win a record-breaking ninth Bundesliga title if Bayern are crowned champions next week, one more than fellow club legends Bastian Schweinsteiger, Philipp Lahm, Oliver Kahn and Mehmet Scholl.

A side on top of the Bundesliga going into the final day of the season has only been defeated three times in history. The last occasion was in 1999-2000 when Bayer Leverkusen lost away to Unterhaching and Bayern celebrated the championship winning 3-1 at home to Werder Bremen and claiming the title due to their superior goal difference.

With an average of 3.14 goals per match, the Bundesliga is the European top-flight league with the most goals in the 2018-19 season – ahead of the Premier League (2.80), Serie A (2.66), La Liga (2.57) and Ligue 1 (2.55).

What’s next?

Leipzig finish their league campaign at Werder Bremen next weekend, while Bayern host Eintracht Frankfurt – with revenge on their mind – before the DFB Cup Final between these two on May 25.

Bundesliga: The Stakes couldn’t be Higher!

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Borussia Dortmund

The 2019 Bundesliga comes to a thrilling climax this weekend, and it won’t be any bigger than in the North Rhine where Borussia Monchengladbach welcomes Dortmund.

Not that the welcome will be particularly warm as both teams desperately need a victory. In a pulsating last round, BVB kept their Bundesliga hopes alive with a 3-2 win over Fortuna Dusseldorf, while FC Bayern drew in Leipzig to keep a thrilling title race going for another week; a real bonus for SBOBET Bundesliga fans, apart from those in Munich of course!

Bayern is at home to Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, and that match will affect both teams at Borussia Park, as Frankfurt is still in the hunt for a top four place, in competition with Monchengladbach.

Lucien Favre will be pleased his team has taken this title race to the final weekend. Though BVB led for much of the season, in recent weeks they have had to fight hard to keep their dream alive. But as this is just as big a game for the hosts, the vast majority of the Borussia Park crowd will be screaming for a home win.

Dieter Hecking’s side picked up a much needed victory last week to keep their Champions League hopes alive, so they’ll be well up for this one. And while both sets of fans will have a close watch on the Bundesliga 2019 updates from elsewhere, they’ll be well advised not to take their eyes off the pitch for one minute.

 


 

 

Talking Points

Two stars aiming for a spectacular finish

With the close season and the transfer merry-go-round just around the corner both Borussias are set to say goodbye to one of their favourite players.

Monchengladbach midfield wizard Thorgan Hazard has indicated his desire to move on to new pastures, with Dortmund being the prime candidates to secure his signature. Premier League runners up Liverpool are also reported to be interested in the young Belgian, seemingly wondering whether he can become as good as his brother Eden, who has had another outstanding season with Chelsea.

Hazard scored his tenth goal of the season in Die Fohlen’s 4-0 win over Nurnberg last weekend and, added to his 11 assists for the season that makes him Hecking’s most creative player. He’s been at the club for five years and has become a fan’s favourite, but he may feel the time is right for a move as his international career blossoms.

BVB are also saying goodbye to a young star of their own. American Christian Pulisic has stayed at the Signal Iduna Park on loan following his £58m January transfer to Chelsea. And he reminded the fans in the Yellow Wall just what they’ll be missing with a pivotal display in Dortmund’s victory over Dusseldorf, putting his side ahead in the first half.

Both players would love to go out with a big performance and that could mean fireworks.

Borussia Monchengladbach are chased by three other Bundesliga teams in the battle for the last Champions League slot

The race for fourth place

After a poor run of one point from nine Monchengladbach recorded that impressive 4-0 win over Nurnberg to haul themselves back into a three way race for a Champions League place. Hecking’s side occupies fourth spot, on 55 points, with Bayer Leverkusen behind on goal difference and Eintracht a single point further back.

Eintracht has that huge fixture against FC Bayern to contend with; while Bayer Leverkusen has a difficult away game against tenth placed Hertha Berlin.

Die Fohlen know that a victory over BVB will book their place in the 2019/20 Champions League. They will go all out for the win.

History

The hosts won’t look to the past for inspiration on Saturday as Dortmund have had the better of the head to heads, winning 27 of the 51 meetings since 1992, while Monchengladbach have won 14 and there have been ten draws.

Die Fohlen haven’t won any of their last seven games against Dortmund, and Marco Reus and Jadon Sancho were both on target as BVB won the return fixture in December, with Christoph Kramer scoring Monchengladbach’s reply.

Betting Tip

??

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Borussia Dortmund First Half over 1.50 @ 1.94
May 18, 21:30(GMT+8)

The Monchengladbach vs BVB betting odds tell us just how well balanced this game is. There is no clear favourite. Monchengladbach is at 2.83 with the visitors at 2.20 and the draw is available at 3.80.

The visitors have some outstanding attacking talent, but with home advantage and a huge incentive I expect the hosts to throw everything at this game.  Dortmund have been struggling at the back recently, notably in the 2-4 derby defeat to Schalke.

I expect to see goals in this game and a fast start. And for an alternative bet, with no score-line lower than 9.00, a 2-2 draw is available at 10.00.

Bundesliga: Champions League Spot on the Line for Leverkusen

Hertha Berlin vs Bayer Leverkusen

There's still so much to play for on the final day of the Bundesliga season. After Bayern Munich could only draw against RB Leipzig last week, Borussia Dortmund still have a shot to win the title if they beat Gladbach and Bayern lose at home against Eintracht Frankfurt.

But the top two are not the only ones who have a lot on the line. Bayer Leverkusen also have so much at stake in their final match against Hertha Berlin: a spot in the Champions League.

The Hertha Berlin vs Bayer Leverkusen betting odds favour an away win, which could be enough to see Leverkusen steal fourth. However, Hertha have rediscovered how to win in recent games and will be all too happy to spoil Leverkusen's European ambitions.

 

opacity 0

 

 

Talking Points

Hertha back to winning ways

Hertha Berlin had the feel of a team that had already begun summer vacation back in February. They were comfortably in mid-table -- not close enough to challenge for Europe and also not in much danger of relegation. Perhaps due to this lack of incentive, their results quickly fell off a cliff.

From late February to mid-April, Hertha went on a disastrous run of six defeats in seven games. Granted, three of those defeats were against the top three teams in the table -- Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, and RB Leipzig -- but they also lost winnable games against Freiburg and Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Hertha's winless drought lasted for seven consecutive matches after back-to-back goalless draws against relegated Hannover at home as well as an Eintracht Frankfurt side looking ahead to their Europa League semi-final against Chelsea.

But finally, Hertha once again tasted victory by beating relegation play-off-bound Stuttgart at home, 3-1. And they followed that up with a thrilling 4-3 victory away from home against Augsburg.

Veteran Salomon Kalou played a big part in those victories with three goals. Forwards Ondrej Duda and Vedad Ibisevic also got on the scoresheet for Hertha. Those three have contributed 29 of Hertha's 48 league goals this season and will be crucial to their success against Leverkusen.

Leverkusen's late surge

Back in early March, Bayer Leverkusen were up in fifth place and looked well on their way toward qualifying for Europe next season. But suddenly, they suffered three consecutive losses which sent them crashing down to eighth.

To be fair to Leverkusen, they did have quite a tough three-game stretch which saw them go up against Werder Bremen -- who hadn't lost in 2019 at that point -- as well as Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig.

Luckily, though, Leverkusen have been able to right their Bundesliga 2019 results in a big way. They're unbeaten in their last five matches and had recently won four games in a row.

That impressive run was finally snapped last weekend as they suffered a shock 1-1 draw at home against struggling Schalke. That result was even more surprising considering Leverkusen had just hammered Augsburg (4-1) and Eintracht Frankfurt (6-1) in their previous two outings.

Those two dropped points could have seen Leverkusen in the driver's seat for that final Champions League place. But now, they must pick up more points against Hertha than Gladbach do against Dortmund in their last match.

Leverkusen do have quite a strong away record this season. They've won eight of their 16 matches away from home -- tied for third-most in the league -- with their six losses all coming against teams inside the top eight in the league.

History

Hertha Berlin and Leverkusen have squared off against each other 45 times in total. Leverkusen hold the significant edge in wins with 23 to Hertha's 11. Six of Hertha's 11 wins have been at home.

There has been a winner in their last 11 matchups, with Leverkusen claiming eight of them. But two of Hertha's three victories have come in their last three meetings.

Leverkusen snapped Hertha's back-to-back win streak by coming out on top in their first meeting this season at the BayArena, 3-1, thanks to two goals from promising teenage star Kai Havertz.

Betting Tip

??

Hertha Berlin vs Bayer Leverkusen Bayer Leverkusen Asian Handicap -1.50 @ 2.19
May 18, 21:30 (GMT+8)

While Hertha have done well to end the season on a bit of a high, they are still not a particularly impressive side. The teams they've beaten recently are near the bottom of the table and don't have much left to play for -- just like Hertha.

As for Leverkusen, they still have a huge prize to play for and should perform accordingly. Moreover, they have a lot of goals in their side, which should give them a good chance to pick up a comfortable away win.

That's why I believe taking Leverkusen -1.50 on the SBOBET Asian handicap sports betting market is the way to go in this match.

Bundesliga: It’s Bayern’s Title to Lose

Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt

Bayern Munich had their chance to clinch the Bundesliga title with a game to spare last week against RB Leipzig. However, they were only able to get a draw, which is a fair result away from home against one of the best and most in-form sides in the league.

Bayern will have another shot to seal the deal as they host Eintracht Frankfurt in the final day of the season. The Bavarians only need to avoid defeat to secure their seventh straight championship, and the Bundesliga 2019 betting odds back them to do just that.

But Frankfurt are still fighting for European football next season and won't be ready to just hand the championship over to their hosts.

Talking Points

Bayern's ultimate advantage

Bayern couldn't quite clinch the title by beating Leipzig, which is understandable. After all, Leipzig haven't lost since going down to Dortmund just after returning from the winter break.

But on the bright side, Bayern will now get a chance to secure the Bundesliga crown in front of their own supporters.

As impressive as Bayern have been during the second half of the season, all their setbacks (three draws, one defeat) have come away. At home, though, Bayern have been simply untouchable. They have won each of their last 10 home matches in the Bundesliga.

Aside from 1-0 wins over Hertha and Werder Bremen, they have generally been a free-scoring side at the Allianz Arena. They've scored at least three goals in seven of their 10 straight home wins.

The big Bundesliga 2019 news for Bayern is that Goalkeeper and captain Manuel Neuer is a doubt to feature in the season finale due to a calf injury. But his absence shouldn't be a massive loss. Sven Ulreich is a capable replacement who has done well filling in for Neuer over the past five matches.

Thiago Alcantara and James Rodriguez are also on track to play some part against Frankfurt after their own injury concerns.

As they showed when they thrashed Dortmund 5-0 in what was ostensibly a Der Klassiker title decider, this experienced Bayern side is not fazed by pressure and is fully capable of rising to the occasion in order to clinch the title.

Frankfurt in freefall

A season which was so promising for the most part could end up being a bit of a disappointment for Eintracht Frankfurt. Due to a disastrous end-of-season slump, Frankfurt are in peril of not having Europe football next season.

Frankfurt have won just one of their last nine matches in all competitions and none of their five Bundesliga fixtures during that time (three defeats, two draws).

 Perhaps not coincidentally, Frankfurt's decline began as they reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League. They made a decision to concentrate on that tournament with the hope of getting as deep as possible.

In fairness to them, they ended up coming very close to reaching the final as they lost to Chelsea on penalties in the semis. But now, Frankfurt need to beat Bayern to guarantee a return to Europe next season.

The good news for Frankfurt is that striker Sebastien Haller has finally returned after a long injury lay-off. Meanwhile, top scorer Luka Jovic (27 goals in all competitions), who hasn't scored in the league since the start of April, found the net in both legs against Chelsea.

With a forward trio of Jovic, Haller, and Ante Rebic, Frankfurt do have the talent to trouble Bayern's defence. But given their recent struggles, coupled with Bayern being at home with a championship on the line, an upset seems highly unlikely.

Meanwhile, there's also Eintracht Frankfurt's horrendous history against Bayern which will weigh heavily against them.

History

Bayern Munich hold a sizable edge over Frankfurt in terms of their all-time head-to-head record. Bayern have 55 wins to Frankfurt's 21, with 21 draws.

However, Bayern have dominated the recent meetings between the two. They are undefeated in 16 of their last 17 matchups against Frankfurt, with 13 wins and three draws.

Bayern thrashed Frankfurt by an aggregate of 8-0 in their first two meetings this season -- 5-0 in the German Super Cup and 3-0 at Frankfurt back in December.

That was likely revenge after Frankfurt -- led by current Bayern manager Niko Kovac -- pulled a stunning 3-1 upset against Bayern in the DFB Pokal final.

Betting Tip

??

Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt First Half Asian Handicap Bayern Munich -1.00 @ 2.20
May 18, 21:30(GMT+8)

Bayern Munich seldom leave things late at home. More often than not, they blitz their opponents early and are very much in control by half-time.

With the anticipation of another potential title just 90 minutes away, Bayern should come out of the gates quickly and hit Frankfurt early.

Frankfurt completely collapsed and coughed up six goals within the first 36 minutes to Leverkusen in their last league away game. And while it's unlikely to get that bad for Frankfurt, Bayern certainly have the ability to inflict similar punishment.

That's why my tip is to take Bayern -1.00 on the First Half Asian Handicap market, which is priced at 2.20 at SBOBET.

Bundesliga: Dortmund Victory but It’s Game Over

Borussia Monchengladbach 0-2 Borussia Dortmund

Dortmund finished off the Bundesliga season with an impressive win away to Monchengladbach, but it wasn’t quite enough for Lucien Favre’s team to win the title.

As we entered the final day, it was always FC Bayern’s to lose as the Bavarians started with a two-point lead. And that’s how it ended as the champions beat Eintracht Frankfurt at the Allianz Arena to pip BVB to the post.

But this was a consummate performance from the runners up, as Jadon Sancho gave the visitors a lead on the stroke of half-time before Marco Reus added a second to make the points safe.

It’s been a cracking season for SBOBET Bundesliga fans. A game of cat and mouse as Favre’s team got off to a flyer and were chased by the slow-starting Bayern side for much of the campaign. After a wobble, BVB recovered to take the race to the final day, but in the end, the title returns to Munich.

Highlights of the game

The hosts are resigned to losing Belgium star Thorgan Hazard to Dortmund in the summer transfer window, but he made a start today and was determined to leave on a high. He had the first effort of the game, taking a pass from Oscar Wendt. But his shot from the left side of the penalty area was charged down.

BVB needed a win to keep their Bundesliga hopes alive. Marco Reus met a Mario Gotze cross but directed his header just wide. Die Fohlen hit back and when Josep Drmic found Jonas Hofmann just outside the area, his shot flew narrowly wide.

Dortmund had another chance from a Christian Pulisic corner when Lukasz Piszczek rose highest, but his header missed the target. And when Reus had a chance from a free-kick he shot just past the post.

Then in two dramatic minutes just before the break, VAR took centre stage as Dortmund pressed for a half-time lead.

First, Reus appeared to be chopped down in the box by Matthias Ginter, but after VAR was consulted the Monchengladbach defender had a reprieve. Moments later, BVB had the ball in the net. Reus crossed for Sancho, who slammed it into the top right corner.

The away fans celebrated but then went quiet as the referee consulted VAR again to see if the ball had gone out of play before Reus crossed. But after three agonising minutes, the goal stood and the Yellow Wall went up again.

The half-time Bundesliga 2019 updates revealed that FC Bayern held a one-goal lead at the Allianz Arena so BVB fans were left hoping for a second-half miracle in Bavaria.

But their team was determined to finish their own part of the deal. Reus had two early efforts before doubling the lead on 54 minutes. In his last game for BVB, Pulisic was in superb form and he crossed for his skipper to convert from close range.

Pulisic then had a shot of his own blocked. Sancho also came within a whisker of making it three, but his deflected shot bounced back off the post.

The miracle in Munich never came as Bayern destroyed Frankfurt, 5-1, but BVB had pushed them all the way.

Key statistics

The Borussia Monchengladbach vs Borussia Dortmund betting odds pointed to a tight affair and so it was in a first half in which the visitors dominated possession. But both sides managed just four shots each, and BVB had the one on target.

In the end, the visitors were good value for their win at pre-match betting odds of 2.20. They finished with 70 per cent possession, 12 shots to seven, with three on target while Die Fohlen didn’t manage a single one.

Dortmund have increased their dominance in the head-to-heads, now doubling Monchengladbach’s wins in this fixture since 1992, making it 28 to 14. And Favre’s team is now unbeaten in eight games against Die Fohlen.

What’s next?

Favre will be in the market to strengthen his team again. American star Christian Pulisic is heading to the Premier League to join Chelsea on a £58m deal, and the BVB boss will work hard through the summer to put his club in a position to challenge again next season.

Dieter Hecking’s Monchengladbach missed out on Champions League football after defeat today as Bayer Leverkusen took the fourth spot with an impressive 1-5 win away to Hertha Berlin. So it’s Europa League football for Die Fohlen.

Bundesliga: This Was an Auf Wiedersehen with Style!

Bayern Munich 5-1 Eintracht Frankfurt

It briefly looked like SBOBET fans of the Bundesliga could be in for a final twist.

Early in the second half, with Borussia Dortmund 2-0 up at Borussia Monchengladbach, Bayern Munich were pegged back.

After a season of Bundesliga 2019 highlights galore, could there be more drama to come?

But the thought merely lasted a matter of minutes and no more.

Just as Manchester City had done in England six days ago, the German champions showed their character when they needed it most.

In the end, the Bundesliga 2019 betting odds were correct.

In the end, it was the perfect send-off for two of the club’s modern day greats.

Highlights of the game

Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben contribute in Bayern Munich's final Bundesliga match of the season
Arjen Robben, Rafinha and Franck Ribery celebrate after Bayern Munich win their seventh consecutive title

For both Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben to mark their final Bayern appearances with goals after coming off the bench was most fitting.

And there was also an on-pitch tribute for right-back Rafinha, who is leaving after eight seasons.

Here is a club which has been under the cosh at times this season. Beaten in the last 16 of the Champions League and struggling to dominate as in previous years.

Yet when it mattered, they emerged on top, clinching the title for the seventh successive year and ending Dortmund’s brave but ultimately futile efforts.

Of course, it’s easy to point to the nine-point lead Dortmund once held in the winter. Or the fact when Lucien Favre’s team got a few jitters and allowed Bayern to reel them in.

However, that would be extremely harsh on Niko Kovac’s side, which accepted the domestic challenge of spirited Dortmund -- the toughest opponents they'd faced for some time and one which deserve enormous credit for their 2018/19 campaign - and still came through.

In fact, victory against RB Leipzig in the DFB Pokal next weekend will seal a league and cup double. More still, they have recognised the need to strengthen and acted.

Robben and Ribery will not be here when the first ball is kicked next season, but some new faces will be with the capture of Lucas Hernandez from Atlético Madrid for a fee understood to be a club record €80m (£68m).

They have also been quick to the signature of Stuttgart defender Benjamin Pavard -- another French World Cup winner last summer -- and are now being linked with the likes of Antoine Griezmann and Ajax’s exciting David Neres among others.

So, there is no chance of this club standing still.

This was a day, though, of celebration and reflection.

When the talented Sebastien Haller tucked home an equaliser for Kovac’s former side five minutes into the second period, a few nerves could have been natural. Instead, Munich just stepped up a gear.

Already a goal to the good through Kingsley Coman’s cool fourth-minute finish, they quickly regained their advantage through David Alaba before one-time Swansea man Renato Sanches took advantage of more poor goalkeeping to seal the points and the title.

It was left to Ribery and Robben to apply the finishing touches.

First, the Frenchman jinked into the area on the diagonal, swivelled past two Frankfurt defenders before dinking his finish past the onrushing goalkeeper Kevin Trapp.

Then the magical Dutchman Robben scored his 99th German league goal from about a yard out from Alaba's low cross.

His team-mates, who surrounded Ribery moments earlier, embraced the Bayern veteran as the Allianz Arena went into party mode.

This was the perfect auf wiedersehen!


Key statistics

Frankfurt qualify for the Europa League second qualifying round next season, thanks to results elsewhere.

Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has been confirmed as the Bundesliga’s top goalscorer for the second year running with 22 goals – the fourth time he has ended the season with the Torjägerkanone prize.

Ribery has won a record-breaking nine Bundesliga titles -- one more than fellow club legends Robben, Thomas Müller, Alaba, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Philipp Lahm, Oliver Kahn and Mehmet Scholl.

Ribery has scored more Bundesliga goals than any other player from France (124 goals), while Robben is the top Dutch scorer in Bundesliga history (99 goals).

Ribery’s 23rd trophy with Bayern takes him level with legend Khan.

Kovac won the DFB Cup with Frankfurt last season, overseeing a 3-1 win over Bayern in the final. Bayern face Leipzig in this season’s final on 25 May.

Frankfurt are winless in their last 17 Bundesliga meetings with Bayern since beating the record champions 2-1 in March 2010. They have not won in Munich since November 2000.

What’s next?

There’s just one match remaining this season for Bayern – next week’s German Cup Final.

Bayern, Borussia and the Bundesliga!

So, that was the year that was!

The Bundesliga 2018/19 ultimately went the way the pre-season SBOBET betting odds had forecast with Bayern Munich claiming a seventh successive triumph.

Yet that only told half the story.

Amidst Bundesliga highlights galore, the title race went down to the final day for the first time since 2001 as Lucien Favre’s Borussia Dortmund produced a chase few expected, even holding a nine point lead early in the new year.

Although that finally bore no fruit, much to the disappointment of football romantics, when the dust settles they can still look back at a season to be proud of, including a memorable victory over the reigning champions last November which included some scintillating football.

However, the class and experience of Bayern, under the stewardship of Niko Kovac, finally told as the hardest of their seven straight title successes was sealed and Dortmund relentlessly reeled in.

Remember since 2013, when Bayern won the treble under Jupp Heynckes, winning the Bundesliga by 25 points, they have since won every Bundesliga by at least 10 points until this season.

Looking ahead, Bayern will not quite be the same without Franck Ribéry and Arjen Robben but they will move quickly to make sure they strengthen.

Toni Kroos will not be returning to Munich, despite speculation, but some new faces will be with the capture of Lucas Hernandez from Atlético Madrid, for a fee understood to be a club record €80m (£68m), and Benjamin Pavard already on board.

It’s also been confirmed today that Jann-Fiete Arp will join from Hamburg this summer.

Bayern announced in February they had agreed a deal that would see the 19-year-old move at the end of this season or in the summer of 2020.

The decision on when to make the move would be left to Arp, who has decided now is the time to make the switch to the Allianz Arena.

Then there is talk of Max Kruse bring brought in from Werder Bremen as back-up for Robert Lewandowski who again sealed the top marksman award in the Bundesliga with 22 goals - the fourth time he has ended the season with the Torjägerkanone prize.

More recruits will undoubtedly follow and Kovac deserves much credit for steering his, in places, ageing side over the line with a German Cup final still to come.

Despite failing to lift the title, BVB players feel proud with their performance in the 2018/19 Bundesliga season

Dortmund also deserve immense credit and one of the stars of the Black-and-Yellows, talented English winger Jadon Sancho, is now known by many as the ‘next big thing’ with the 19 year-old  earning top billing as one of the Bundesliga’s heavyweight performers.

Indeed, his size-able contribution of 12 goals and 14 assists kept them in the race until the very end and there is no reason why they should not mount another genuine challenge next term.

RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen will join the top two in next season’s Champions League.

That left Borussia Monchengladbach and Wolfsburg in the spots for the Europa League – the latter will be coached next season by Austrian Oliver Glasner and back in European competition for the first time since 2015/16, when they reached the Champions League quarter-finals.

Should they win their qualifying two-legged tie, they will be joined by Eintracht Frankfurt – semi-finalists in this year’s competition and made to sweat before their place was confirmed.

However, they were done a huge favour by regional rivals Mainz who came back down from two goals down to see off Hoffenheim 4-2. That late collapse pushed Julian Nagelsmann’s side down into ninth, in his final match in charge, and ensured Frankfurt finished seventh.

As he bows out, it should be noted Hoffenheim have taken 191 points from their 116 Bundesliga matches since Nagelsmann took charge in February 2016. Only Munich and Dortmund have collected more points in that time.

Further down the table, Mainz and Freiburg are among those who deserve praise for continuing to preserve their top flight status, despite another year or rotating relatively inexpensive players.

As for game of the season, notable highlights include Schalke’s 4-2 success at nine-man Dortmund as the pressure on the hosts grew; the game that announced Paco Alcacer to a German audience when the Barcelona loanee notched a Dortmund hat-trick in a 31-minute cameo from the bench; Bayern’s 5-0 destruction of Dortmund which turned the tables firmly in their favour and Dodi Lukebakio’s hat-trick as Fortuna Düsseldorf held Bayern on home soil.

As Nuremberg and Hannover slipped out of the Bundesliga, attention will now turn to the play-offs.

Stuttgart, runners-up in the table as recently as 2003, meet Bundesliga 2 side Union Berlin to determine whether they preserve their status or slip down a league at Berlin’s expense.

See, there’s still something to play for just when you thought Bundesliga 2018/19 was done and dusted!

Bundesliga: Big Clubs Making Big Moves

Well folks, the new Bundesliga season is getting ever nearer, and there is less than a month to wait now. August the 16th is the date…put it in your diary!

The pre-season Bundesliga 2019 betting odds are sure to place FC Bayern as heavy odds-on favourites to win the title again with Borussia Dortmund pushing the hardest for a change in rule at the top.

RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen are also expected to have strong seasons, having qualified for Champions League football, and there will be a challenge from Borussia Monchengladbach and Eintracht Frankfurt for a top-four place, while both take part in the Europa League this term.

Every coach knows that no matter where they sit in the pecking order, they must strengthen, or risk sliding down the league. Meanwhile, the smaller clubs fight desperately to hold on to -- or get value for -- their own prized assets.

But who’s been making the best moves in the transfer market so far?

All change at Bayern

Two attacking stalwarts of FC Bayern’s successful team are saying goodbye to the champions. Franck Ribery is heading for pastures new after 12 fantastic seasons with the Bavarian giants, while Arjen Robben is hanging up his boots.

The club is on the lookout for replacements, and Manchester City’s Leroy Sane is top of the shopping list. Although, Bayern would have to shell out around £90 million to seal the deal.

City boss Pep Guardiola wants to keep the 23-year-old winger at the Etihad. And while Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and head coach Niko Kovac are both big admirers of the wide man, Pep insists they haven’t yet made an offer, saying: “For a long time they talk about their interest, but Leroy is our player and hopefully he can stay next season and next season and next season."

Watch this space.

Bayern have already dipped into the market, long before the window opened, signing two of France’s World Cup defenders in Benjamin Pavard and Lucas Hernandez.

Both will feature heavily this season, but it is upfront where some new recruits are needed. Robert Lewandowski will bang the goals in if he gets the supply.

New Hero for the Yellow Wall

BVB ran FC Bayern very close for the 2019 Bundesliga title, but couldn’t stop the Bavarians marching on to a seventh successive league title. Lucien Favre’s team was only two points behind the champions and he has made some early moves to strengthen his side in preparation for another assault on the title.

While Eden Hazard’s switch from Chelsea to Real Madrid hogged the early window headlines, there has been a big move too for his brother Thorgan, who's gone from Borussia Monchengladbach to Borussia Dortmund in a deal worth around £40m.

It’s a decent coup for BVB after fighting off attention from European champions Liverpool for the Belgian’s signature.

Meanwhile, Die Fohlen have signed Schalke’s front man Breel Embolo as part of their own rebuild.

In his five seasons with Gladbach, Hazard made 182 appearances, scoring 46 goals and making 45 assists. The 2018/19 season was his most productive as he scored 10 with 10 assists.

He could be the new hero in Dortmund and is likely to line up alongside Julian Brandt after his move from Bayer Leverkusen. The attacking midfielder has made 25 appearances for Germany and has a one goal in five games ratio at club level. He's sure to be a big hit in Dortmund.

 


 

 

Leverkusen need to strengthen for the demanding season ahead. They have already signed PSG winger Moussa Diaby as a replacement for Brandt and have completed the capture of Kerem Demirbay from Hoffenheim.

RB Leipzig will be joining Leverkusen in the 2019/20 Champions League and they have already bolstered their midfield, signing Hannes Wolf in a 12 million Euros deal from sister club Salzburg.

Eintracht Frankfurt will hope to push for a top-four place this season. They have yet to replace Luka Jovic after the striker’s transfer to Real Madrid, but they have spent some of the proceeds of his sale on Swiss midfield man Djibril Sow. But surely there will be more to come in Frankfurt.

There are still four weeks to wheel and deal, but then FC Bayern open up the new season with a home fixture against Hertha Berlin. Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund takes on Augsburg at the Signal Iduna Park a day later.

You can keep up with all the latest Bundesliga 2019 news and updates right here at SBOBET. We’re watching some of the big guns in the pre-season; Bayern are playing Real Madrid in the International Champions Cup.

That will keep us going!

Bundesliga: Bayern Munich Out To Defend Their Crown Against Tough Competition

Football fans are in for a treat especially when Bundesliga is about to start its 2020 season on August 16.

Despite being the heavy favourites to win it all again next season, Bayern Munich is about to face some serious competition with 18 teams in the mix.

FC Koln, SC Paderborn, and Union Berlin are being promoted from last season, while VfB Stuttgart, Hannover 96, and 1. FC Nurnberg are the latest victims of relegation.

Top-tier clubs like Borussia Dortmund, RB Leizpig, and Bayer Leverkusen are all out there to try and take the much-coveted championship out from the hands of the Bavarians.

SBOBET takes a preview on some of the highly-anticipated matchups in the Bundesliga 2020 season.

The much-awaited Der Klassiker

We were blessed to witness two thrilling matchups between these two teams last season.

In what was a Klassiker for the ages, Dortmund triumphed against Bayern (3-2) in dramatic fashion, putting themselves at the top of the table momentarily. However, the Bavarians fought back at the Allianz Arena and crushed Dortmund (5-0) in the following fixture to retake the lead.

The Bundesliga 2019 news reported the departure of forwards Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery for Bayern. However, the team’s expectations are still high with guys like Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller, and Manuel Neuer still in the fold.  Expect the Bavarians to not be complacent as they prepare to defend their crown.

BVB, on the other hand, are looking to make up for their runner-up finish last season. Dortmund will continue to have Marco Reus, Paco Alcacer, and Mats Hummels leading the way. However, the development of Dan-Axel Zagadou and Tobias Raschl will be vital if they’ll have any chance of upsetting the defending champs.

More fireworks are expected from these clubs in the upcoming season. They will have two chances on going at each other’s heads at Match Day 11 happening on November 2019, and at Match Day 28 set on early April 2020.

Dortmund seeking redemption in the Revierderby

Another drama-filled matchup awaits between Borussia Dortmund and FC Schalke in the classic Revierderby. They will face each other at Match Day 9 and at Match Day 26 sometime next year.

Jadon Sancho was the star during their first fixture last season, as he scored the match-winning goal at the Veltins Arena. However, the Royal Blues got their payback by ruining BVB’s title hopes in a come from behind 4-2 win at the Signal Iduna Park.

While the Bundesliga 2019 odds of winning next season’s title appears to be more favorable for Dortmund than of Schalke, these clubs from the Ruhr area are expected to bring out the best of each other whenever they meet up – and that wouldn’t be any different come the Bundesliga 2020 season.

RB Leipzig taking on the top dogs

RB Leipzig had a good showing last season after finishing third overall at the table -- only behind Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich -- which is why their upcoming clashes against the top two teams are sure to bring excitement for Bundesliga fans.

Some key dates for the Red Bulls are at Match Day 4 on early September in their home pitch versus Bayern Munich and at Match Day 33 versus BVB on May 2020 – with the latter posing some major ramifications.

Youngsters Yussuf Poulsen and Timo Werner will be at the spotlight for RB Leipzig’s attack while Hannes Wolf will provide additional firepower at the midfield – after signing a 12-million Euros deal from sister club Salzburg.

Berlin Derby

In what will be a first in league history, Hertha and Union Berlin are slated to meet for the first time in the 2020 season. It’s a battle of East (Union) and West (Hertha) at Match Day 10 during opening week and at Match Day 27 on March.

Hertha is busy building for the future by bringing in youngsters Daishawn Redan, Ondrej Duda and Marko Grujic. On the other hand, Salomon Kalou will bring veteran leadership and experience for the Pal Dardai-mentored club.

Meanwhile, Union would want to make sure that their recent promotion is no fluke. They’ve made sure of that by contracting former Bundesliga standouts in Neven Subotic, Manuel Schmiedebach, Christian Genter, and Marvin Friedrich.

Subotic, who’s already an established name in German football, chose to suit up for Union and has set lofty expectations for his new squad.

"Survival will perhaps be the toughest job of my career. If we do it, we'll be absolutely delighted. We're not thinking about playing in Bundesliga 2 next season,” said the Serbian defender.

Union Berlin will make its Bundesliga debut against RB Leizpig on August 18 at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei.

Bundesliga: Ten Players to Watch Out For in 2019

The Bundesliga admittedly doesn't have the sheer star power of the Premier League or La Liga. But what they do have is a rich crop of young, up-and-coming stars who could potentially make their way to those big clubs in England and Spain in the near future.

For now, though, they will ply their trade in Germany. Here are 10 names, in particular, to keep a close eye on as they could very well set the Bundesliga alight this season.

Jadon Sancho (19), Borussia Dortmund

Sancho simply took the Bundesliga by storm last season. The precocious Englishman had 12 goals and 14 assists to power Borussia Dortmund's title charge, which ultimately came up just short.

At just 19 years of age, there's every reason to think Sancho can make even more Bundesliga 2019 highlights this term; he already gave Bayern a taste of what could be in store for the rest of the league in Dortmund's 2-0 Supercup win.

Sancho is one of, if not the most exciting player to watch in Germany at the moment and is a must-watch for all SBOBET Bundesliga fans all season long.

Kai Havertz (20), Bayer Leverkusen

Sancho may have been getting much of the attention with his brilliant performances last year, but Havertz was equally as impressive. The 20-year-old midfielder scored an impressive 17 goals, including seven in the last seven games of the season to help Leverkusen secure Champions League football.

With Julian Brandt leaving for Dortmund over the summer, Havertz will have to shoulder the load in Leverkusen's attack. But if last season was any indication, he is certainly more than capable of stepping up to the challenge.

Serge Gnabry (24), Bayern Munich

Gnabry was arguably Bayern's second most important attacker last season. The German was a consistent performer out on the wing as Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben struggled to get on the field.

With the two veteran wingers now gone and Bayern unable to secure the services of Leroy Sane, Gnabry will be even more vital to the champions' plans.

Perhaps that security of a starting spot every week will push Gnabry to even greater heights this year, which should only improve their already strong Bundesliga 2019 odds.

Timo Werner (23), RB Leipzig

Werner has been among the best players in the Bundesliga since coming over to Leipzig back in 2016. He's averaged 16 goals and six assists over the past three seasons, which are terrific numbers.

But there's a decent chance Werner can reach an even higher level this season with the arrival of highly rated young manager Julian Nagelsmann. The 32-year-old was able to coax some great seasons from his players during his time in Hoffenheim and could potentially to do the same with a world-class talent like Werner.

Florian Neuhaus (22), Borussia Monchengladbach

With Hazard now in Dortmund, it will be up to Neuhaus to help fill the void the Belgian left in the Gladbach attack. While the 22-year-old is a completely different type of player, he did show flashes of brilliance last season (three goals, eight assists) and figures to take another step up this year.

Maximilian Eggestein (22), Werder Bremen

Eggestein has been among the essential members of Werder Bremen's squad over the last two seasons. The 22-year-old had five goals and four assists last year and also got his first call-up to the German national team. If he can add more goals to his already well-rounded game this season, his first cap should be just around the corner.

Thorgan Hazard (26), Borussia Dortmund

Hazard had another brilliant campaign with Gladbach last year. Eden's younger brother had 10 goals and 10 assists, which earned him a big move to Dortmund. But instead of being the main man in attack, Hazard will be third in the pecking order behind Sancho and captain Marco Reus.

That could end up being a good thing for Hazard, though. He stands to benefit from all the attention those two will receive from opposing defences when they play together. Hazard's presence should also help reduce the pressure on Sancho and Reus to create chances for Dortmund this season.

Ibrahima Konate (20), RB Leipzig

At the tender age of 19, Konate was one of the best defenders in the entire Bundesliga, according to WhoScored. He was one of the foundational pieces of a Leipzig defence which conceded a mere 29 goals, the best mark in the league.

Konate will now have to prove he isn't a one-hit wonder, but with the brilliant Nagelsmann now in charge, Konate could end up being even better.

Ishak Belfodil (24), Hoffenheim

Once on the books at Inter Milan, Belfodil looked set to be one of those talents who never quite reached their potential. But then at age 27, the Algerian had a breakout season with Hoffenheim as he scored 16 goals in just 28 Bundesliga appearances.

The question now is whether that was a one-season fluke or if Belfodil has finally figured things out. But after losing the likes of Joelinton and Kerem Demirbay in the summer, Hoffenheim will be hoping it's the latter.

Dodi Lukebakio (21), Hertha Berlin

Lukebakio spent last season on loan at Fortuna Dusseldorf from English club Watford, and he made the most of that situation. The 21-year-old scored a historic hat-trick against Manuel Neuer in a 3-3 draw against Bayern Munich and also scored a goal to end Borussia Dortmund's undefeated run.

That strong season -- 11 goals in 23 games -- was enough for Hertha Berlin to break their transfer record to sign him. A lot will be riding on the young Belgian's shoulders, but he all the physical gifts to rise to the challenge.

Bundesliga: Bayern Munich Hosts Hertha Berlin In Season Opener

Bayern Munich vs Hertha BSC

A new season awaits in the Bundesliga where Bayern Munich are set to commence their title defence against all comers.

Bayern Munich have already amassed seven straight titles and they will look to add one more to their gigantic trophy case.

Their quest for an eight-peat starts on Saturday where the Bavarians will be hosting Hertha Berlin at the Allianz Arena and these two clubs have a lot of history more than you would think.

While the Bundesliga 2019 odds of winning this game are much higher for the Niko Kovac-mentored team, expect Hertha Berlin to put up a good fight on the road.

Today, SBOBET give a glimpse on what’s ahead for this matchup.

 


 

 

Talking Points

Hertha Berlin looking for an upset

The Old Lady will be coming in this game with a world of confidence -- and for good reason – as they’ve fared well against the Bavarians in their last few encounters.

In their first match last year, they made life harder for Bayern Munich on defence where they both ended up scoreless. Few months later, Die Alte Dame dealt Bayern Munich its first October loss in the last eight years at the Olympiastadion with a 2-0 result.

Last February at the Allianz Arena, Hertha managed to put up a valiant effort against Bayern at least for the first half up until Javi Martinez’s header turned the tides in favor of the Bavarians. That game was a nail-biter and the Berliners definitely proved that they’re no pushovers.

Bayern Munich have only lost just once in the opening day for the last 17 years and they are known to put on a wonderful attacking game every chance they get.

Despite the daunting task ahead for Hertha Berlin, for sure this game will produce some of the best Bundesliga 2019 highlights.

How will Ante Covic fare this season?

After a terrible campaign last season, Hertha Berlin decided to appoint Ante Covic as the team manager replacing Pal Dardai.

The Berliners will continue to feature the likes of Daishawn Redan, Marko Grujic, Salomon Kalou, and Ondrej Duda. The squad took on Iand Boyata from Celtic and they’ve also acquired Dodi Lukebakio from Watford via transfers, with the latter poised to have a breakout season for the club.

This is a dream come true for Covac, who has spent six years being the team’s U-23 coach. With all hands on deck, this is the perfect time for him to show what he’s got with higher stakes on the line.

Who will step up for Bayern with multiple players gone?

Losing Mats Hummels, Rafinha, Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben is huge for Bayern Munich but their roster is still loaded with a bevy of talent.

Robert Lewandowski will continue to lead the way for the Bavarians and he will be supported by the core of David Alaba, Javi Martinez, Thomas Muller, and Serge Gnabry.

The Bavarians continued their reload by bringing in Benjamin Pavard, Lucas Hernandez, and Fiete Arp. They might make their Bundesliga debuts soon, but they are all still developmental talents to say the least for Niko Kovac.

Die Roten also signed Ivan Perisic from Inter to shore up the team’s offence.

Niko Kovac will have the enviable job of managing and maximizing all of these players at his disposal, and it’s just a matter of finding the right mix into his lineups on a per-game basis.

History

Hertha and Bayern have already met in 68 top-flight matches in the Bundesliga, with the latter winning most of them with 39. However, the Berliners have been a thorn on the Bavarians side in the last few years.

The Berliners are notably unbeaten against both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund for calendar year 2018.

While the Bavarians won last season’s Bundesliga, Hertha Berlin ended up in 11th place after a horrendous start.

Betting Tip

??

Bayern Munich vs Hertha BSC Bayern Munich Asian Handicap -1.75 @1.64
August 17, 02:30 (GMT+8)

Playing in their home pitch, Bayern Munich remain the overwhelming favorites to kick off their season with a victory, and it would be difficult to bet against a team loaded with firepower.

The Bavarians have overwhelmed their opponents in their last seven opening day matches with a whopping goal aggregate of 25-4, and they’ve averaged 3.6 goals in those games.

As for Hertha Berlin, it’s a sizeable task for them to travel down south and get at least one point in this match. Should they be able to do so, it will be considered a big success for Ante Covic and Co.

I see Bayern Munich get a 3-0 win against Hertha Berlin in this opening day fixture.

Bundesliga: Dortmund’s Title Dreams Begin Anew Against Augsburg

Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg

After coming so close to reclaiming the Bundesliga crown last season, Borussia Dortmund are set for another run at the title this year. And they will have a relatively easy assignment to begin their new campaign as they host Augsburg at Signal Iduna Park.

Augsburg just about escaped relegation last season as they finished in 15th. And with relatively little investment in the squad this summer, new manager Martin Schmidt will have his hands full keeping the Fuggerstädter up for another season.

In contrast, Dortmund have invested heavily in their squad in preparation for another title challenge. Meanwhile, the dynamic duo of Marco Reus and Jadon Sancho has remained intact and will look to pick up where they left off last year.

Talking Points

Dortmund's perfect pre-season

Borussia Dortmund's pre-season was picture perfect. Lucien Favre's side won all six of their friendly matches, scoring at least three goals in every one of them.

They also produced an impressive 2-0 win over Bayern Munich in the DFL Supercup and breezed past Uerdingen 2-0 in the DFB Pokal.

Paco Alcacer, the team's leading goalscorer last season with 18 goals, has been in scintillating form this pre-season. He scored six goals in his six appearances, including four in his last three matches.

Can Paco Alcacer score as many goals as he did in the Bundesliga 2018/19 season?

Dortmund's dynamic duo of Jadon Sancho and Marco Reus has also been looking sharp and ready to make some Bundesliga 2019 highlights. The two had to carry most of the attacking load for Dortmund last season as they combined for 29 goals and 22 assists.

This season, though, they should get much more help from new signings Julian Brandt and Thorgan Hazard, who should be one of the top Bundesliga players to watch this season.

Brandt and fellow wide player Raphael Guerreiro are both injury concerns for the season opener, which will likely open the door for Hazard to start on the left.

Meanwhile, Mats Hummels should get his first start back at Signal Iduna Park following his return from Bayern Munich. The veteran centre-back will look to add some much-needed experience to a Dortmund defence which shipped 25 goals at home last season, which was middle of the pack.

But despite their leaky defence, they still ended up with the best home record (14 wins, two draws, one defeat), in large part due to a league-high 52 goals scored.

 


 

 

Augsburg's awful defence

Augsburg's eight-year stint in the Bundesliga almost came to an end last season as they were in the thick of the relegation battle. Luckily, they finished a good four points clear of the relegation play-off spot. But despite keeping them up, manager Manuel Baum was sacked after three seasons with the club.

Martin Schmidt has now been appointed as Augsburg boss for this season. This is Schmidt's first job since 2018 when he resigned after just five months in charge of Wolfsburg.

Augsburg have brought in a number of new players this transfer window but no one particularly noteworthy. Their most expensive signing was goalkeeper Tomas Koubek, who cost €7.5 million.

However, the Bundesliga 2019 odds still have them as one of the favourites to go down this year, in large part due to concerns about their horrific defence. Augsburg shipped 71 goals last season, tied for the most in the entire league.

Despite not having a top-quality star, Augsburg's attack was still more than adequate last season as they scored 51 goals. But only 17 of them were away from home, which contributed to their poor away form (three wins, four draws, 10 defeats).

History

Borussia Dortmund have had the better of Augsburg in their head-to-heads since the latter's arrival in the Bundesliga. In 16 overall matches, Dortmund have won nine to Augsburg's two, with five draws.

Although, Augsburg were surprisingly competitive in both matches against Dortmund last season. They came out on top 2-1 in their most recent meeting at home. And in their first matchup of the season at Signal Iduna Park, they pushed Dortmund hard in an exciting 4-3 affair.

Paco Alcacer bagged a terrific second-half hat-trick, which he capped off with a game-winning goal from a free-kick deep into stoppage time.

Betting Tip

??

Borussia Dortmund vs Augsburg Borussia Dortmund First Half 1X2 @ 1.64
August 17, 21:30 (GMT+8)

It would be quite astounding if Augsburg came away with a win over Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park. The SBOBET odds have the visitors as huge underdogs priced at 9.50 to win on the 1X2 market.

While Augsburg played Dortmund well in both matches last season, I don't expect a repeat performance. Dortmund appears to be locked in at the moment and should be eager to take care of business in their home opener.

That's why I predict that Dortmund will be on top by the end of the first half. With all their attacking talent coupled with Augsburg's creaky defence, they are bound to score relatively early.

Bundesliga: Monchengladbach Host Schalke In Season Opener

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Schalke 04

Borussia Monchengladbach and Schalke 04 are set to lock horns in the opening week of the much-anticipated Bundesliga.

They will kick off their respective campaigns at the beautiful Borussia Park, where Monchengladbach have been nearly invincible especially at last season’s earlier stages.

Both of these clubs will feature newly-minted managers who plan on bringing their clubs to new heights and it sure won’t be easy as time goes on.

Today, SBOBET reviews these clubs and examines on what to expect from the both of them this Saturday.

 


 

 

Talking Points

How will the new managers fare this season?

After failing to meet expectations last campaign -- both Gladbach and Schalke brought in new faces to man the helm for their respective squads --as reported in the Bundesliga 2019 news.

The Foals went out and got Marco Rose, ending Dieter Heckling’s three-year tenure. Rose is a two-time Austrian league champion and is a renowned figure in the UEFA Europa League. He is known for his high-tempo, attack-minded style as seen back in Red Bull Salzburg.

Apparently, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is a huge fan of the German. In fact, the two have been together way back in their playing days suiting up for FSV Mainz 05.

Meanwhile, David Wagner has his eyes set on restoring order for a Schalke squad that almost fell to relegation the last time around.

Wagner has experience managing Borussia Dortmund II and Huddersfield Town - where he guided them to the Premier League.

Change may bring good omen for these clubs moving forward. And it will be interesting on how these managers go up against each other in their respective Bundesliga debuts.

Can Alassane Plea step up to the plate for the Foals?

With Thorgan Hazard leaving town, this opens up opportunities for Alassane Plea – who emerged as the team’s top scorer last season. The French skipper scored 12 total goals for Gladbach last season.

Plea oozes with potential especially with his fine, quick play. And with guys like Lars Stindl and Raffael getting at the wrong side of 30, the captainship is only his to lose.

He will definitely thrive in Marco Rose’s high-tempo attack, especially with his high fitness levels.  The 25-year-old can form a lethal core with fellow youngsters Marcus Thuram, Breel Embolo, and Florian Neuhaus -- who is expected to make strides this year

Once they get it going, Monchengladbach’s Bundesliga 2019 odds of finishing at the top four will increase dramatically.

Schalke aiming for a top-half finish

The Royal Blues’ 2019 campaign was a miserable one for the fans as they finished at four points above the relegation play-off spot.

One of their highlights last season, however, was when they dashed Borussia Dortmund’s title hopes in a 4-2 Revierderby victory towards the season’s end. That game was the perfect way to salvage a horrible season for Schalke as they maintained their top-flight status.

Schalke will need to look for a way to produce positive Bundesliga results under David Wagner
David Wagner returns to his former club as their new manager

The squad bolstered their middle by signing Ozan Kabak, Benito Raman, and Jonjoe Kenny. Weston McKennie, on the other hand, will be the player to watch for the Royal Blues.

The American skipper played in 33 matches for Schalke last season in where he scored his first goals for the Bundesliga and the UEFA Champions League. He was the main man behind Team USA’s finals run to the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

McKennie is a versatile footballer, as he can play in the midfield and in defence giving David Wagner a variety of options. He will be of big help to striker Guido Burgstaller and goalkeeper Alexander Nubel – who will replace Benjamin Stambouli as the club captain.

David Wagner will have the daunting task of bringing Die Knappen to a top-half finish, but their recent transactions suggest that they’re on their way there.

History

The Foals have been unbeaten against the Royal Blues in their last five encounters, winning both games last season. They’ve also posted 21 clean sheets in 46 home matches against Schalke, which was more than any other team.

Schalke’s last win in Borussia Park was last May 2013, where Julian Draxler scored the marginal goal of the match.

Marco Rose never lost at home as a first-team coach in the pro football ranks (W42, D10).

Betting Tip

??

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Schalke 04 Borussia Monchengladbach Asian Handicap -0.25 @ 1.80
August 18, 00:30 (GMT+8)

History suggests that Gladbach will assert its mastery over Schalke at 2.07 odds, and it is very likely to happen again in this match.

Expect the Foals to give an all-out effort for their fans in Borussia Park and the same is expected for the Royal Blues.

I would give the edge to Gladbach since Marco Rose’s system looks to be a better fit for the players. This looks like a 1-0 win in favor of Die Borussen.

Bundesliga: Friday Night Fun in Bavaria!

Bayern Munich 2-2 Hertha Berlin

As starts to the new Bundesliga campaign go, this could hardly have been more thrilling.

The game featured four goals, drama, and a result which defied the SBOBET Bundesliga betting odds.

If this is a sign of things to come over the next nine months, we are in for a treat.

Highlights of the game

After being pushed all the way by Borussia Dortmund last term – where at one point the champions were nine points behind their rivals – this was something of a new start for Bayern Munich.

After saying farewell in style to Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery, Niko Kovac’s men had a slightly new look as they launched their title defence.

Mats Hummels and Rafinha have also gone, yet these are exciting times for the Bavarians.

They have strengthened with the acquisition of Benjamin Pavard, Lucas Hernandez and Fiete Arp and, in an attacking sense, the talented Ivan Perisic was this week snapped up on loan from Inter Milan.

Also, perhaps crucially, just before this clash kicked off came the news of an arrival which may create Bundesliga 2019 highlights galore in the season to come.

The imminent arrival of Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona on a season-long loan will excite Munich fans and should fill the void left by Robben.

It was recognisable faces in the line-up in the Allianz Arena, however, which caught the eye in this encounter.

A healthy concoction of old timers and young upstarts took to the stage in the hotly anticipated curtain raiser and it didn’t take too long before a familiar figure made his mark.

Robert Lewandowski needs no introduction and last season claimed his third top scorer title and second on the spin with 22 goals, coupled with a further 10 assists in 33 Bundesliga appearances.

Although he didn’t find the net against Hertha Berlin then, it took him only 24 minutes to make his mark this time.

Serge Gnabry delivered the ball on a plate for the Polish frontman and he turned it home from close range with an outstretched leg.

That wasn’t the cue for a comfortable evening for the hosts, however.

Last season, Dodi Lukebakio became the first player in Bundesliga history to score a hat-trick past Manuel Neuer and the Bayern captain was soon picking the ball out of the net again from the 21 year-old livewire.

Lukebakio, who scored a hat-trick here for Fortuna Düsseldorf, marked his Hertha debut in some style with a shot which took a generous deflection off the back of Vedad Ibisevic to leave Neuer flat-footed as his net rippled behind him.

If that stunned Bayern, what followed six minutes before the break was even more of a surprise.

Ibisevic lifted the ball into the path of Marko Grujic who, despite having just clashed heads with Pavard moments earlier, showed the clarity to touch the ball wide of Neuer and tuck it in with his second touch.

Bayern were level on the hour when the first VAR ruling of the new German season came into effect.

Replays showed Grujic fouled the Polish striker and Lewandowski dusted himself up and fired the champions level.

New manager Ante Covic and his Hertha Berlin charges were not to be denied though and held out as Bayern failed to win their opening fixture of the season for the first time in eight years.

Kovac wasn’t impressed and said his side should have won but battling Berlin showed a spirit which should hold them in good stead.

Key statistics

Munich have not lost on the opening day of the season since 2002 (won 14, drawn five).

Lewandowski has become the first player ever to score in the first game of the season for five years running. He has also converted 23 of his 26 penalties in the Bundesliga.

The Polish striker scored more braces (six) than any other player in the league last season.

Lukebakio has scored five goals in three games against Bayern, four in Munich (level with Cristiano Ronaldo and Markus Rosenberg).

Both sides had just one summer recruit in their starting XIs: Pavard for Bayern, Lukebakio for Hertha.

Bayern are unbeaten in 25 Bundesliga home games against Hertha (won 19, drawn six).

However, the Berliners have lost just one of their last six league encounters with the record champions (1-0 in Munich last season).

What’s next?

Bayern travel to Schalke next weekend for their first away league match of the new season.

It’s a first home fixture of the season for Covic and Co at home to Wolfsburg on August 25.

Bundesliga: Dortmund Continue Fine Form, Koln Aiming For First Win

FC Koln vs Borussia Dortmund

Trying to sustain their exquisite form as of late, Borussia Dortmund are set to continue their journey in the Bundesliga by going up against FC Koln in the second Match Day.

The game will be held in the RheinEnergieStadion where fans over there are ecstatic to see the host team FC Koln make their top-flight comeback in the Bundesliga after winning the second division title last season.

After an impressive 5-1 victory against Augsburg, the Lucien Favre-managed club will look to win two in a row as they try to stay atop of the table.

Today, SBOBET gives you a preview on what’s ahead for this upcoming match in Match Day Two.

Talking Points

Borussia Dortmund’s auspicious start

It’s no secret that Borussia Dortmund have a ton of regret after losing the title to the hands of Bayern Munich last season. The nail in the coffin was when they were crushed by the Bavarians with a 5-0 score last April. The title was theirs to lose after leading for the most part, too bad that they couldn’t sustain it in the end.

BVB performed beyond expectations during the pre-season. They won in all six of their exhibition games and have scored at a high rate in all of them.

Bundesliga: Paco Alcacer seems to form a deadly combination wirh Jadon Sancho and Marco Reus during pre-season

In those six games, Paco Alcacer led the charge for Dortmund with six goals. He, along with Jadon Sancho and Marco Reus, will form a deadly combination that will increase their Bundesliga 2019 odds of winning the championship.

New signings Julian Brandt and Thorgan Hazard will add on to their vaunted attack while Mats Hummels continues to man the centre-back position for the team.

As shown in their first game of the season, offence won’t be a problem for Lucien Favre’s side. However, their defence needs to hold up especially once they’ll get to face the top dogs as the season rolls on. And perhaps that will be the determining factor on whether they’ll win it all this time or not.

How will FC Koln fare this season?

One year after their relegation to Bundesliga’s second division, the Billy Goats have returned to top-flight status – and they plan on staying there for good.

Such predicament came to the surprise of their loyal fans in Cologne since they have been doing okay in the past few seasons. However, their successive losses until Match Day 17 proved to be too much to handle in their last campaign.

A big part of their misfortune is failing to keep the enigmatic Anthony Modeste at the time. The French striker left Germany for China in what was a soap opera-like turn of events. Then-manager Peter Stoger has had a contentious relationship with him after the move, and they haven’t been the same ever since.

With his transfer, FC Koln struggled mightily on their attack. But more importantly, the rigours of playing in several leagues took its toll given their lack of depth. Even the late signing of Simon Terodde couldn’t rescue the team from being relegated.

Fast forward to this season, FC Koln made sure to reload their roster by bringing in a 31-man pool mixed with young studs and experienced vets, as per Bundesliga 2019 news. Along with Simon Terodde -- they managed to bring in the likes of Timo Horn, Kingsley Ehzibue, Birger Verstraete, and even Anthony Modeste -- after his deal with China ran out its course.

 


 

 

Given their recent transactions, I won’t be surprised if the Billy Goats can score a few upsets here and there against some of the giants this season.

History

Borussia Dortmund and FC Koln have played against each other in 25 matches where the former has won in 14 matches while the latter have won only four times. There have been seven drawn matches between these two clubs.

Neither team won in their encounters from May 2016 up to April 2017.

The Billy Goats’ previous win against BVB was a 2-1 triumph back in December 19, 2015.

Betting Tip

??

FC Koln vs Borussia Dortmund Borussia Dortmund Asian Handicap -1.00 @1.69
August 24, 02:30 (GMT+8)

It’s no doubt that last year’s second-placers are the heavy favourites in this matchup. BVB is pegged at 1.46 on winning this game, while Koln is at 5.80. The Bundesliga 2019 odds for a draw are at 4.70.

Even with the advantage at home, FC Koln will definitely have a hard time in matching up with BVB’s firepower on offence.

The trio of Jadon Sancho, Paco Alcacer, and team captain Marco Reus would be too much to handle for the home team, so it’s safe to place your bets on a high-scoring victory for the fellows clad in yellow and black.

I see a 3-0 win for Borussia Dortmund in this game.
