Leverkusen and Freiburg will also test one another on Saturday, while on Sunday Bremen will face the mighty Wolfsburg at home.
Dortmund vs Schalke and Hertha vs Augsburg
Dortmund reached the bottom of the league several weeks ago, however fortunately for them they managed to recover a bit and are now standing in 12th place with 25 points. Jurgen Klopp’s men have hit a form of 3 consecutive wins in the most recent games but now they will face a really tough challenge against Schalke, one of their biggest rivals along with Bayern Munich. Bet365 has set their odds at 1.50 (1/2), since they will be the hosts for the encounter.
The Gelsenkirchen side have been assigned outsider odds 6.50 (11/2), despite the fact that they sit in a far better position (4th) than their rivals. Over the last 5 games they have notched 1 loss, 2 draws and 2 wins, while playing on the road they maintain an uncertain record (3 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses). That is the reason why their odds are not favorable, however a draw 4.33 (10/3) between the two should also be considered for the encounter.
Hertha Berlin sit all the way down in the relegation zone in 17th place out of possible 18. Their form has been disastrous nothing up only 1 win and 4 losses in the last 5 encounters. Playing on their home ground they have accumulated a very disappointing record (4 wins, 1 draw and massive 6 losses). It makes sense that mobile betting sites don’t hold them in high regard for the upcoming game against Augsburg, assigning them chances of 2.80 (9/5).
The visiting side on the other hand are pushing hard to enter the top 4 as they now sit in 5th position with an overall of 35 points. Their form has been unconvincing as of late (1 loss, 2 draws and 2 wins in last 5 games), and their away record does not seem to impressive as well (4 wins, 0 draws and 7 losses). Nevertheless, Bet365 favors them to clinch a victory 2.50 (3/2) against Hertha, while a draw for the match stands at 3.40 (12/5).
Leverkusen vs Freiburg and Bremen vs Wolfsburg
Leverkusen currently lie in 6th spot with 33 points however several weeks ago they used to command a slightly better position on the table. Now they have slipped as their form dropped (2 losses, 2 draws and only 1 win), while their home record stands at 4 wins, 6 draws and only 1 win. Although their stats are not that convincing they are still a much better side than their upcoming opponents Freiburg.
Freiburg find themselves in 16th position with 22 points which is why Bet365 has ranked them as outsiders 9.00 (8/1) for the match against Leverkusen. While playing on the road they have recorded 2 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses, so they have no serious shot against their next opponents. A draw is mot that they can hope for however that event is also unlikely 4.75 (15/4), while a win for the hosts stands at 1.36 (4/11).
Bremen stand in 8th place with 30 points and their form has been great in recent times, having recorded only 1 draw and a cool 4 wins over the course of the last 5 games. At home their stats are decent (6 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses) for a side that works on a limited budget, however Bet365 does not favor them to win 3.60 (13/5) the upcoming encounter against 2nd-placed Wolfsburg.
The Wolves have been phenomenal this season and they seem to be the only ones that can usurp Bayern Munich. Their away results are not as great as their home records as they only notched 4 wins, while the other games ended in 3 draws and 3 losses while on the road. Due to their better standing on the table, online sportsbooks in Germany have automatically given them favorite status 1.91 (10/11), where an unlikely draw stands at 3.75 (11/4).
