Make sure to check out all the exciting games set to take place this weekend in the top flight of German football.
During the week we enjoyed all the great action in the DFB Pokal which saw the likes of Bayern Munich take on Braunschweig and Dortmund play against Dresden away from home. Both of the aforementioned Bundesliga teams were successful against their lower side oppositions so now they will focus their attention to the upcoming games in the national league.
• Wolfsburg favorite against Augsburg
• Freiburg face a tough test against Bremen
• Hamburg will clash with Dortmund at home
German gambling news reports that Augsburg will play against Wolfsburg and judging by their recent performances at home we are set to witness a great show. Freiburg will defend its colors against Bremen on their own turf while Schalke will challenge Hoffenheim at home. And lastly Dortmund will go head to head with Hamburger on the road.
Augsburg vs Wolfsburg and Freiburg vs Bremen
Augsburg currently sit in 6th spot in the league and they will be looking to collect a few extra points against Wolfsburg. Although they have put on decent performances at home in the last five games (2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss), Wolfsburg are the second best team in the Bundesliga right after leaders and defending champions Bayern Munich.
Bet365 has therefore set their odds at 3.60 (13/5), while a draw for the game stands at 3.50 (5/2), an event that may also likely happen. The Wolves occupy 2nd place thanks to their 50 overall points. While playing on the road they have notched 5 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses, but mobile betting sites are convinced that they win this game against Augsburg. Bet365 has decided to assign them preferential chances 2.05 (12/11).
Freiburg will be tested against Bremen on Saturday afternoon but considering that they are currently located in 17th position so they are not viewed as the favorite side to win the game. They have managed to only amass 22 points so far this season and over the last five encounters they recorded 3 losses, 1 draw and only 1 win. A draw between then stands at a high 3.40 (12/5).
Bremen are in a far better position than their upcoming opponents as they stand in 9th spot with 30 points, however they have not managed to put on a good show while playing away from home. They won only 2 games while playing on the road, whereas the other encounters ended in 3 draws and 6 losses. Bet365 has given them the lower odds 2.70 (17/10), while the hosts remain favorites 2.60 (8/5).
Schalke vs Hoffenheim and Hamburger vs Dortmund
Schalke find themselves in 5th place with 35, however the management of the club doesn’t consider that to be a good place as they always strive to seal a top place in the league. Every season they commence the competition with the aim of winning the championship, however they never are successful as they lack qualities in certain departments of the club.
They will next play against Hoffenheim at home which should see them win the encounter as the hosts have won a massive 7 times. The rest of the matches resulted in 4 draws and only 1 loss, so Bet365 strongly favors them to win 2.25 (5/4). Hoffenheim on the other hand have been dealt unlikely chances 3.20 (11/5), due to the poor form (3 losses, 1 draw and only 1 win). An unlikely stands at 3.40 (12/5).
Although Hamburg have bought back their former striker Ivica Olic to help boost their team, they are currently languishing in 15th place, one position above the relegation zone. over the last 5 encounters they notched 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses, so they are not viewed as the preferential side to clinch the all-important 3 points from the game.
Online sportsbooks in Germany have given them odds of 6.00 (5/1), while a draw between the two stands at 4.33 (10/3). A Dortmund have experienced a small resurgence in recent times which has seen them record a string of wins. They now sit in 10th position with an overall of 28 and have won 4 consecutive games. Bet365 believes that they will be able to pull off a win 1.53 (6/11) against their upcoming opponents.
