Playing it safe
Schalke have only lost one of their last six games and won four of those. They are playing well and scoring goals (an average of 2 a game), whilst Stuttgart are on the back of an embarrassing home defeat against Greuther Fürth and have nothing to play for. Schalke will also be looking to cement their 4th spot, which will be all but done with a win.
Bump up your accumulator
Dortmund love scoring early (16 in the first 15′ of their Bundesliga matches) whilst Wolfsburg aren’t the greatest of starters to matches (conceded 8) so an early goal in this game is definitely on the cards.
Worth a flutter
These are two teams who don’t enjoy scoring many goals in their matches (Mainz, 1.2 goals/match; Gladbach, 1.2 goals/match) and who have the fifth and seventh best defences in the league respectively. All of this combined makes for a tight game in which not many goals should be expected. A 1-0 or 0-1 victory or even a 0-0 draw is highly likely.
Hoffenheim are fighting for their lives and they’ll fancy welcoming HSV to the Wirsol Rhein-Neckar Arena as Thorsten Fink’s side have been one of the most unpredictable and inconsistent sides in the Bundesliga this year. Logic would tell you that HSV should at least get a point from this game but Hoffenheim’s feisty second half display against Werder Bremen last week showed that they’re no mugs and that they will fight until the bitter end. Such a motivated side might be a bit too much for Hamburg’s lethargic-looking team.
It could happen…
The Eagles are facing a difficult trip to the Weserstadion where Thomas Schaaf’s men have their back against the wall. Frankfurt have taken 7 points from their last three outings, scoring 4 goals whilst only conceding one. Werder on the other hand side have been more of a defensive outfit of late, trying to turnaround their awful trend(4 points from their last 11 matches). A small bet on this scenario might be a good investment.
Special match day tip
In the last five times that Hannover have visited the BayArena, they have come out with empty hands having lost all of those five games and having conceded 12 goals. Their contribution? 0 goals in total. Five times is a lot more than a coincidence so, will Leverkusen once again beat Hannover and keep a clean sheet? History is on your side.
