German Football Steps into the Spotlight on Saturday AfternoonPublished March 6, 2021 by Florin P
German teams are in the spotlight this Saturday when they play key games in their quest to fulfill ambitious objectives in the Bundesliga.
German football fans are once again in for a treat this Saturday when the best teams in the Bundesliga are scheduled to play. Home pitch advantage means little when games are played without spectators, but the intensity of the games will more than compensates this lacking. The outcome of these matches could determine the fate of the teams chasing the trophy and an eligible Champions League place.
Bayern is Ready to Put the Last Nail in Dortmund’s Coffin
Bayern had to overcome some adversity in recent weeks but the reigning champions are back in pole position. They can now extend their lead over the pack, while striking a decisive blow to Dortmund. This is their biggest archrival and even though they are separated by 13 points, the opportunity is too good to miss. Excellent form and a better overall starting formation make Bayern Munich the favorite to win this game. Odds of 3/5 are offered by bet365 Sports on the hosts to prevail and 4/1 on the visitors to win.
Wolfsburg and Hoffenheim Resume the Climb
Wolfsburg and Hoffenheim have returned to their winning ways after poor season starts. The former sit in the third-place and if they maintain this tempo, they could end up on a Champions League eligible place. They have the second-best record in games played away from home and this explains the odds of 13/10 at bet365 Sports. Hoffenheim had a busy schedule with games in the Europa League where they suffered a humiliating elimination. Now they start with the second chance and odds of 2/1 to win the home game.
Last Chance for Fading Leverkusen and M’Gladbach
Leverkusen and M’Gladbach shows a lot of promise but February was a catastrophic month for both of them. All their hopes have virtually vanished, after failing to win in six matches and dropping points against weaker opponents. This is literally the final chance for M’Gladbach to secure a European league berth and they are priced at 14/10. Leverkusen are slight underdogs, with 888 Sport pricing them at 18/10, but they can’t settle for a point if they hope to play in the most prestigious European competition.
Juventus and Lazio Try to Keep Dwindling Hopes Alive
There’s a single match worth noting in the Italian first division this Saturday, the game between Juventus and Lazio. The reigning champions are in serious danger of failing to defend the trophy after falling into third place. They are separated by seven points from the leader and unless they defeat Lazio at home, all hopes will vanish. 888 Sport expect them to prevail, as reflected by the odds of 4/5, in spite of ambivalent results. Lazio was defeated in three of the last four matches and get odds of 31/10 to win this fixture.
