German Bundesliga Betting: Wolfsburg and Bayern Munich Fight for the Top

The Bundesliga is back at last with an explosive match pitting Wolfsburg and Bayern Munich in a fight for the top of the table (19:30 UK time).

Finally the long winter break has come to an end and football fans from all over the world rejoice as the German Bundesliga returns with a bang. Wolfsburg, the only team that still stands some kind of chance to take the title from Bayern Munich, is hosting the Bavarian giants today at the Volkswagen Arena (19:30 UK time).

Long Way to Go for Wolfsburg

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step says the quote, and today Wolfsburg will still find themselves 8 points away from Bayern with a win. Positioned second in the Bundesliga table with 34 points, the wolves are having a good season in which they won 10 games, lost 3 and went out with 4 draws. Sadly, today's game will be the team's first since midfielder Junior Malanda was killed in a car accident, something that will surely cast its shadow over the match.

Wolfsburg already met Bayern earlier this season at the Allianz Arena where the Bavarians won 2-1 but the situation is different today, as Bayern is missing some key players and Wolfsburg's got the home advantage and momentum. Look for top goalscorers Naldo and especially Ivica Olic who already beat Bayern's iron goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

Bayern Still Favorites

Leading the table with 45 points composed of 10 wins, 3 draws and zero losses, Bayern Munich is well on its way to a third consecutive title. The Bavarians won all of their games since November – they're a dominant team that is very impressive and scary. Bayern will miss key players today like Alcantara, Lahm and Martinez but Pep Guardiola knows how to deal with the absentees.

Bayern's got plenty of goalscorers to go around, namely Muller, Lewandowski, Gotze and Robben – all good for goalscorer bets.
