Bayern Munich v Gladbach
Bayern Munich have only lost two games in the Bundesliga season, they have won their last five games in a row, scoring 15 goals whilst only conceding three, two of which came in a 3-2 win over Dortmund. Borussia Monchengladbach started on a positive note with a 1-1 draw against the defending champions, but since that point it has been downhill and they’ve now recorded four losses in their last five games and haven’t won since the 20th November.
Bayern are known around the world for their ability to score goals and have proven that still to be true on lots of occasions already this year. This season they have averaged 3.29 goals per game and their match goal average is 4.24, the highest in the league this season. 11 out of their 17 games have resulted in more than 3.5 goals, and that looks another likely outcome here in the Friday night kick off.
OVER 3.5 GOALS
Frankfurt v Dortmund
After only managing one win in their first ten Bundesliga games, Eintracht Frankfurt have gone on to win six out of their last seven and have really turned their season around, to emphasise this point, they have the same number of points as Bayern do in the last six games. Dortmund have only won one of their last four whilst drawing one and losing the other two. The last time these two teams met was the first game of the season when Dortmund put on a finishing clinic with the end result being 5-2.
14 of Dortmund’s 17 games so far have seen both sides find the net, and only one of these games did not have over 2.5 goals (1-1 Draw with Bochum), 13 of Frankfurt’s games have also resulted in BTTS but they have had five 1-1. With the attacking talent that Dortmund possess and only Bayern netting more times this year, an overs bet looks worth pairing with BTTS.
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE AND OVER 2.5 GOALS
Leverkusen v Berlin
After beating Greuther Ferth 7-1 at the beginning of December, Leverkusen have been winless through their three league outings (D1-L2). In the last game these two played against each other the result was 1-1 on the first day of the season. Union Berlin have only scored one goal in their last three games, a run which included a defeat to Furth, giving the bottom side their first win of the campaign, so confidence certainly isn’t high in the Berlin camp.
This game is quite hard to call due to both teams being on a poor run of form coming into this game and only one point to split the two teams in the league, though Leverkusen’s home advantage means they go into this odds-on favourites, although based on a table of home results Bayer would be all the way down in 12th. The result is very much up in the air, though in their combined matches this season both sides have found the net 64% of the time, including the reverse fixture and that looks a good prospect here.
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
