Bundesliga continues to roll, bringing several big-time games this weekend. We are going to focus on two of the most interesting matchups. The first one is in Moenchengladbach, where Borussia meets Bayer Leverkusen. The second takes place in Munich, with the reigning champions Bayern awaiting its big rival from Frankfurt, Eintracht.
Borussia Moenchengladbach vs. Bayer Leverkusen Preview
Both sides kicked off this post-corona part of the campaign very well, and both notched wins. Borussia rolled over Eintracht on the road 1-3, while Bayer beat Werder in Bremen with 1-4.
Borussia slashed Eintracht and was leading 0-2 after seven minutes of play. They would open the match it a goal with less than a minute since the start of the event. After that it was all a routine for the hosts. Moench plays interesting and attractive football, with lots of goals.
Their offense is excellent, but the defensive part is not so shinny, which is why they allow at least one goal almost all the time. For example, in just one of the previous nine matches this side played, we haven’t seen both teams to score and over 2.5 goals. That can tell a lot of things.
On the other side, we have Leverkusen, who has similar statistics. The last eight games finished with both teams to score, and during that span, just one didn’t end up with over 2.5 goals.
Until the moment when everything stopped due to the COVID-19 pandemics, Bayer was by far the best team in the country, that is, happened to be in the best shape. They wouldn’t lose in 11 consecutive contests, and are now on the row of four straight games with three or more scores.
From our point of view we wouldn’t suggest betting on the final result, but focusing on goals. It is much safer, to go with high efficiency than with any other bet. Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is the primary choice. Odds at BetXchange are sitting at 0.48.
Bayern Munich vs. Eintracht Franktfurt Preview
The champs continued to play in the same manner as before the hiatus. They would run through Berlin, defeating Union with 0-2 in the previous round, posting three points, and still keeping the distance between them and the rest of the title contenders.
The Bavarians haven’t lost at home in the previous eight games, and during that time, they won seven times, and had one draw, and that was against RB Leipzig, 0-0. It was the only game in which they haven’t netted at least twice.
Bayern knows to be very inspired when playing against big names, which Eintracht is, and in those situations, they want to score as many goals as possible. Be aware of that.
The Eagles from Frankfurt didn’t start as planned, and Moenchendglabach practically outclassed them at their own ground. We are safe to say that if they don’t improve in the near future, the relegation fight could be very problematic for Eintracht.
This was their third straight loss when looking at the pre-Corona time. Those two were against Leverkusen on the road, 4-0, and at home against Basel in the Europa League 0-3.
Eintracht is the worst team in the Bundesliga once looking at the games on the road, with just seven points in 12 games, two wins, one draw, and nine losses, with a goal difference of 11-25.
Anything but Bayern’s comfortable and big win would be a surprise here. The difference in quality is just too big and the chances for Eintracht to get back home are near zero. Therefore, our assumption is that the champions are going to roll over the guests early on and solve the match right away. Bayern to win the first half with an Asian handicap -1.25 goals is priced at 1.26 at BetXChange. That would be our pick.
