In efforts to appease many fans, the Bundesliga has prepared superb midweek matches so that they wouldn’t have to wait until the weekend.
German gambling news reports that 9 matches will be played between Tuesday and Wednesday as clubs prepare to go head to head on matchday 16 of the Bundesliga. The league’s defending champions and current leaders Bayern Munich will take on Freiburg on Tuesday evening while on Wednesday second placed Wolfsburg will take on Dortmund in a mouthwatering clash.
Schalke will play against newly promoted side Paderborn and Bayer Leverkusen will be tested against Hoffenheim. None of the other major leagues will be showcasing matches over the week so dedicated fans have been afforded a great opportunity to witness fantastic action in the German top flight.
Tuesday’s games will provide superb football action
Hannover will play Augsburg at home on Tuesday evening in a match that brings a lot of uncertainty with it. Augsburg is currently in 5th place trying to keep its place among the privileged clubs that get to play in Europe next year. They maintain a concerning away record that stands at 3 wins, 5 losses and without any draws, which means that any game that they play on the road can go in either way and it’s slightly leaning more towards a loss.
Bayern Munich favorites against Freiburg
Dortmund face a great challenge against Wolfsburg
Moenchengladbach will go head to head against Bremen
Hannover will play on their home field so they will be looking to take advantage of that aspect, however their record as hosts is not commendable. They are also quite ambiguous just as Augsburg is at home, considering that they have notched 4 wins, 0 draws and 3 losses. Online sportsbooks in Germany believe that both teams have equal chances of success, Hannover 2.65 (33/20) and Augsburg 2.60 (8/5), while a tie has been set at 3.35 (47/20) according to Unibet.
Bayern Munich will be aiming to maintain their impeccable run at the Allianz Arena when they take on Freiburg. Pep Guardiola’s men have so far won all 8 games at their home ground and don’t seem to be stopping any time soon. They have also scored 25 goals in front of the home supporters and only let in 2. These stats will surely terrify the visitors as they probably must know that there is no chance they can win this encounter.
While playing away from home, Freiburg have won 1 game, drawn 4 and only lost 3 times, however Bayern are a completely different opponent from anyone else in the league. Unibet obviously favors the hosts for the win 1.06 (1/17), but punters are urged to wager on other markets. Placing a bet on Lewandowski to score stands at 1.48 (12/25), while Thomas Muller and Arjen Robben hold goalscoring chances of 1.68 (17/25) and 1.58 (4/7) respectively.
Wednesday will feature 5 other games
Paderborn was successful in clinching promotion from 2 Bundesliga to the German top tier of football at the start of the season. Up until now they have been something of a revelation as they managed to overcome sides that have been in the Bundesliga for years before their arrival. The team occupies the 10th spot on the table and has 18 points to its name, but their next test will come against Schalke on Wednesday evening.
The club from Gelsenkirchen is 6th on the table however they have a poor away record of 2 wins and a total of 5 losses. This definitely won’t work in their favor as they come up against a team that has lost only 1 home game. Luckily for them they boast talented players like, Boateng and Draxler that should help them overcome any difficulties. Unibet has given them odds of 2.50 (6/4), while the hosts have been assigned 2.75 (7/4) and a draw stands at 3.40 (12/5).
Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg is the biggest match of the midweek games, so all fans are advised to tune to in and enjoy all the great action. After clinching the league title twice in a row (2011 and 2012), Dortmund have been unable to reproduce the same form and now find themselves on the fringes of the Bundesliga in 16th place and fighting to remain in the top flight. They face an uphill battle which seems very uncertain for the remainder of the season.
Wolfsburg on the other hand are enjoying sublime form and are currently in 2nd position, 9 points behind Bayern Munich. Their away record is the same BVB’s home record (3 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses). As per German gambling laws, Unibet is able to offer great odds to its customers and for this clash they favor Dortmund 1.85 (17/20), despite performing badly in the league. The visitors have been given outsider odds of 4.15 (31/10), while a draw is 3.55 (51/20).
