Bayern Munich and Dortmund Face Fading Rivals on SaturdayPublished May 23, 2020 by Florin P
Bayern Munich takes on fading Freiburg while Wolfsburg travels to Wolfsburg for an action-packed match.
Bayern Munich players did their job last weekend to defeat Union Berlin on the road and defend their first place. Dortmund did the same on Saturday, so the two teams continue their quest for the trophy ahead of M’Gladbach and Leipzig. The leaders and the runners-up play on the second day of the weekend when other key matches scheduled involve teams struggling to avoid relegation.
Bayern Munich Set to Consolidate Bundesliga Lead
Bayern Munich should be able to maintain the advantage over Dortmund, as the team plays at home against Frankfurt. Their opponents are fading in the standings and were defeated last weekend in spite of having home turf advantage. This time they travel to Munich determined to defend for 90 minutes, but they are unlikely to succeed in their quest. Odds of 3/20 offered by bet365 Sports on the hosts to prevail clearly reflect the discrepancy between the two teams.
Dortmund Braces for Tough Test on the Road
Dortmund will play this match on the road after easily claiming three points at home last weekend. They have scored four unanswered goals and are just favorites on the road against Wolfsburg, but they will have a more difficult task. The odds of 4/5 offered by bet365 Sports indicate the fact that the visitors are narrow favorites to prevail. The hosts were lucky to snatch three points last weekend after scoring in overtime, but on this occasion they would gladly settle for a draw.
Last Chance for Paderborn to Salvage Season
Paderborn were able to avoid another defeat on the road against Düsseldorf, but they are still deep inside the relegation zone. They will need an even better performance at home against Hoffenheim, a team that has lost last weekend against Hertha Berlin. Both teams are hungry for points and will be willing to take more chances for an opportunity to score early. This match has the potential of turning into a goal-scoring festival, so punters should consider the odds of 3/5 at 888 Sport on over 2.5 goals to be scored.
In-Form Freiburg Welcomes Struggling Werder
Freiburg played well enough to frustrate Leipzig and denied them the chance of staying within striking distance of the leading pack. Now they will set higher expectations for themselves against Bremen, a team in serious danger of relegating. The hosts are clearly the squad in better form and they have an excellent track record in front of the fans, so the odds of 6/5 offered by 888 Sport are justified. The visitors have several players missing due to injuries or suspension and will have a hard time causing an upset.
