Bayern Munich have successfully defended their trophy, but there is plenty to play for in the final round of the German Bundesliga. Some teams are trying to avoid relegation, while others are still within reach of a Europa League place. They will all throw everything they’ve got at their opponents, trying to secure these ambitious objectives.
Hoffenheim Play Key Match in Dortmund
Hoffenheim play on the road against one of the best home teams in the German first division, knowing that anything short of victory is insufficient. The good news is that the visitors will take on a team that lacks motivation, after Dortmund is guaranteed to finish second. They won’t even have to play for the fans, as the match is played on an empty stadium, so the spur is at its lowest. Under these circumstances, the odds of 3/4 offered by bet365 Sports on the home side to win are rather low. Betting on the visitors to cause an upset that will take them to the Europa League at odds of 3/1 makes more sense.
Wolfsburg Welcomes the Newly Crowned Champions
Wolfsburg play at home against Bayern Munich and they are also hard-pressed to win to play in the Europa League next season. They play against a better team, but they are lucky to face an opponent that has several players injured or suspended. The visitors are also lacking motivation after winning the new championship on its own stadium. Punters should consider the odds of 3/1 offered by bet365 Sports on the hosts to prevail, whereas they can only expect odds of 3/4 on the reigning champions to win.
Dusseldorf Chases a Risky Draw on the Road
Düsseldorf is just two points above the relegation line and will need a victory to be certain of staying in the first division. A draw might suffice, but this is a risky proposition, given the fact that they will be demoted if Werder Bremen wins at home. Their awful performance on the road is worrisome ahead of this fixture, even though they play against the newly promoted Union Berlin. 888 Sport regards them as favorites, because of their superior motivation and offers even odds on their victory.
Werder Bremen Must Win to Avoid Relegation
Werder Bremen will play at home against FC Koln, one of the worst traveling teams in the German first division. They are not doing much better in front of the fans either, but this is a must win game so they will throw everything they’ve got. 888 Sport offers odds of 13/20 to punters willing to back the home side, while offering odds of 4/1 on Koln to win and send Werder Bremen to the second division.
