OVERVIEW: Only 1 selection from 4 ticked off last time out represented a poor and disappointing fixture round, so it called for an overhauling of tactics this week. I’ve decided to spread the picks over the whole weekend rather than just the Saturday fixtures meaning we have a larger pool of bankers to choose from. Although I usually try to avoid the early kick off, the first match is Friday night when Leverkusen play Freiburg. Obviously the risk is the possibility of the acca being bust before the actual weekend but until we have more options other than the Bundesliga I think this is how it’s got to be. I’ve also increased the number of selections from 4 to 5 matches and the stake from £5 to £10 this week. Reasons being I’m more confident about these matches than previous weeks and the increased stake balances out the shorter odds to ensure we’d still get a worth while return. I have a GOOD FEELING about this ticket.
PICKS: Despite a poor result in midweek against Wolfsburg that halted a 5 match winning streak, I think Leverkusen will beat a Freiburg side that have only won 1 in their last 5 including a defeat to 2nd bottom Bremen. In terms of Champions League qualification its a vital for Bayer to keep winning and no fans means no 12th man for Freiburg so quality should be the difference here. Away win.
Wolfsburg are coming into this one full of confidence after dispatching champions league place contenders Leverkusen 4-1 last time round. Frankfurt on the other hand have only one 1 of their last 6 and been been average at best most of the season in comparison to last. Wolfsburg’s scratchy home form maybe cause for concern but I still think they’ll be too much for their counterparts in this one and good value at 10/11.
Bayern Munich have one hand on the title again after beating Dortmund in The Classica. Home to 3rd bottom Düsseldorf, I expect this to be a formality with plenty of goals. Big home win.
I fancy Monchengladbach at home to Union Berlin who haven’t won for 6 games, 5 of which have been defeats. Gladbach sit 4th and just inside the Champions League spots but with Leverkusen in 5th, level on points and breathing down their necks, win’s are imperative. I think they’ll get their 3 points with striker Alassane Plea one to watch. Home win.
Dortmund will look to bounce straight back after the potential league shattering defeat to Bayern. Although they’ll be without the injured duo Marco Reus and Erling Haaland, a fixture against rock bottom Paderborn should be seen as ideal tonic to get back on track. It’ll be interesting to see if Sancho gets more game time but no biggy if he doesn’t, I don’t think it will affect the outcome. Quick mentions for Dortmund’s 2 full backs, Guerreiro and Hakimi, very impressive all season. Goals and an away win here. GET UP THERE!!
