No Room for Error in Sunday’s Bundesliga MatchesPublished May 24, 2020 by Florin P
Leipzig travels to Mainz for a must-win match while Schalke welcomes Augsburg in a game that could destroy their hopes for the Europa League.
Only three games are scheduled on Sunday in the Bundesliga, but these are all highly anticipated and meaningful games. Leipzig play one of their last cards in their quest to win the trophy, while Schalke cling onto their chance to play in a European competition next year. At the bottom of the standings, Düsseldorf will try to pick up three valuable points against Koln that will help them avoid relegation.
Leipzig Tries to Recover After Disappointing Draw
Leipzig have squandered an excellent opportunity of picking up three valuable points in front of the fans last weekend. After splitting points against Freiburg, they will need to perform better on the road against Mainz, a team that drew the last two matches. The hosts would like to split points again, but for the visitors, nothing short of victory would do the trick. They will throw everything they’ve got to hold the hosts in their tracks, but punters can only expect odds of 9/20 at bet365 Sports.
Everything on the Line for Schalke on Sunday
Schalke were demolished by Dortmund on the road on Saturday and need a better performance at home against Augsburg. They have the advantage of playing in front of the fans, but their overall record at Veltins Arena is far from inspiring. That’s why in spite of playing against a rather mediocre opponent, they benefit from even odds at bet365 Sports. These two teams haven’t won in the last six matches, so they can no longer play it safe and accept the possibility of a draw.
The Draw Looks Likely in Dusseldorf vs Koln Match
Düsseldorf’s inability to defeat lowly Paderborn last week has further aggravated matters for the relegation-threatened team. Now they play on the road against Koln who are a better scoring team and a superior opponent overall. This only amplifies the pressure bearing on the visitors’ shoulders, as they are compelled to switch into a more aggressive gear. It is the hosts who are credited with the first chance at odds of 4/5 by 888 Sport, yet the visitors are the more motivated team.
