The German Bundesliga brings two exciting matchups this weekend, both featuring big names such as Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund,
Bayern Munich vs. Eintracht Frankfurt preview
The reigning European champions were more than dominant against Atletico Madrid in the UCL this Wednesday. By far, they are the most confident crew seen over the previous five or six years.
Hansi Flick put all the pieces together, and the Bavarians are now looking like an unstoppable machine. They would quickly bounce back following a defeat against Hoffenheim, posting five wins in a row, in all of them coring at least three goals.
By the way, all those five events ended with over 2.5 goals, with four going over 3.5. During that span, Bayern beat Borussia Dortmund in the German Super Cup, Hertha Berlin, Duren in DFB Pokal, and Arminia Bielefeld before trashing Atletico.
Meanwhile, Eintracht is not in such a great mood. The Eagles have two wins and draws along with one loss in the previous five games. They are oscillating too much, and unlike two years ago once they were one of the biggest surprises in European football reaching the Europa League semis, the team from Frankfurt is mediocre now.
Regarding efficiency, 2 or 3 goals are frequent once this team plays, as just one match in the last five went outside that range.
Bayern likes to play against Eintracht, and they often post-high wins against this team. Though last season, the Eagles beat the champions 5-1 in Frankfurt, and that was the reason for the Bavarians to fire Niko Kovac and appoint Flick. The rest is history. The previous five H2H matchups all saw over 2.5 goals, with the Bayern winning in four of them. Our suggestion for this one is to bet on Bayern to score two or more goals during the opening 45 minutes, with the odds at BetXChange 1.20 for that.
Borussia Dortmund vs. Schalke 04 preview
The Millionaires are returning home after a 3-1 defeat in the Champions League against Lazio on the road. Our prognosis that Borussia presents a team with very talented players, but unable to compete for some notable result are revealing as correct, as we saw that they couldn’t beat an average UCL team in the group stage.
Having Haaland, Reyna, Sancho, etc, isn’t worth anything once they aren’t ready to put the team’s success ahead of their individual, and the only thing Borussia might earn from them is money, trophies for sure not.
They have two wins and three defeats in the last five matches, with the note that two played at home saw over 3.5 goals.
The only good thing here for Borussia is that they face Schalke, who is very bad since the year started. The Miners have just one point in four matches, allowing three goals in each event but the last one that ended 1-1 at home against Union Berlin. It seems that they represent the top favorite for relegation in this campaign, and avoiding the same would be very hard for this squad.
Schalke’s defense has been terrible, allowing 16 goals, while on the other side, this team netted only twice.
The prediction for this matchup is simple, bet on Dortmund’s high victory. For those who are modest, a win by two or more goal margin is perfect, at 0.60. Borussia to score over 1.5 goals int he first halftime is 1.25 at BetXChange.
