The Bulk of Bundesliga Matches to be Played on SaturdayPublished May 30, 2020 by Florin P
The German first division has scheduled most of its games for Saturday, with the reigning champions and European league contenders in the spotlight.
Bayern Munich has claimed valuable points over Dortmund and is likely to win another domestic trophy. Other top German teams will play on Saturday afternoon, as they try to close the gap separating them from the leading pack. The action is just as intense at the bottom of the standings, where the squads struggling to avoid relegation are scheduled to perform on the road.
Hertha and Augsburg Seek Back-to-Back Wins
Hertha and Augsburg won the last match without conceding a goal and will try to extend the winning streak. Hertha have home pitch advantage and have already won both games played so far since the German Bundesliga has resume. Even though there will be no fans cheering for them from the stands of Olympiastadion playing in Berlin means a great deal. We currently get even odds on the hosts to prevail if you place the wagers at bet365 Sports and 13/5 on Augsburg to pick up a rare victory on the road.
Schalke Chases First Home Victory in May
Schalke were crushed in both games played so far this month and are on the verge of losing any chance of playing in a European competition next season. The Champions League is already out of reach, but the hosts can still book a seat in Europa League if they turn the ship around quickly. On Sunday at 2:30 PM UK time, they will welcome Werder at home for a match without spectators and are priced at 6/5. The visitors are in danger of relegating, but they’ve played better recently and get odds of 11/5 in this match.
Wolfsburg and Frankfurt Gear up for High Scoring Match
Wolfsburg and Frankfurt have played some exciting games since the German first division resumed. Many goals were scored in this fixture and there’s also a high likelihood for a high scoring match on Saturday afternoon. Wolfsburg were able to defeat Leverkusen on the road after being defeated at home by Dortmund. Now they have home pitch advantage once again and start as narrow favorites, with even odds at 888 Sport. Frankfurt lack constancy, but the odds of 5/2 on a surprise road win are tempting.
Bayern Munich Set to Extend Lead at the Top
Bayern Munich are on the verge of winning another Bundesliga trophy after defeating Dortmund midweek. They should be able to extend the lead with ease on Saturday at 5:30 PM UK time, when they welcome Düsseldorf. This is the most lopsided match of the week, with the leaders having nearly 3 times more points than the team struggling in the relegation zone. Not surprisingly, 888 Sport only offers odds of 1/20 on the home side and stunning 40/1 on the underdogs to cause a major upset.
