The top three in Bundesliga One all won last weekend so after ten rounds of matches the status quo remains with Bayern Munich a point clear of Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen at the top of the log. Dortmund are the first of the big guns in action this week when they host Stuttgart on Friday night and that’s where we start our preview.
Dortmund v Stuttgart (Friday 21:30)
With Bayern not in action until Saturday Dortmund can go top of the log on Friday night and as they have won all five of their previous home games in the league, they will be a popular choice to do just that. It’s worth pointing out that all five of those Dortmund home wins came against sides currently placed no higher than tenth so eighth placed Stuttgart could well offer more resistance than Jurgen Klopp’s men have encountered thus far. Stuttgart let favourite backers down last Friday when they were held 1-1 at home by Nuremburg. The point at least extends Stuttgart’s unbeaten run to seven league matches although four of the last five have finished all square and coincidentally, Stuttgart have taken a point from each of their last four visits to Dortmund..
Match Result Betting: Dortmund 1 / 4, Draw 17/4, Stuttgart 9/1
Selection: Match result draw, 17/4
Hoffenheim v Bayern Munich (Saturday 16:30)
Bayern are the only unbeaten side in the top flight with eight league wins and two draws. The dropped points came in away fixtures at Freiburg and Leverkusen both of which finished 1-1 whilst they won with a clean sheet at Frankfurt (1-0) and Schalke (4-0). Hoffenheim are the Bundesliga’s great entertainers with 25 goals scored and 23 conceded in just ten league games and that goal rush could well continue here.
Match Result Betting: Hoffenheim 17/2, Draw 17/4, Bayern 1 / 4
Selection: Away team to score in both halves (yes) 13/20
Eintracht Frankfurt v Wolfsburg (Saturday 19:30)
Frankfurt’s run of four consecutive draws in the Bundesliga came to an end in Week 10 when they crashed 4-1 at Monchengladbach. They have yet to win at home with two draws and two defeats although those losses came against the best the Bundesliga can offer, Bayern and Dortmund. Wolfsburg are the only top flight side yet to finish all square but only one of their five wins came away from home. They did finish last week in sixth position though and if they can sort their away form out they could challenge for a place in the Europa League next season. Avoiding defeat here would be a step in the right direction for Wolfsburg and they get the vote to take a least a point from the game.
Match Result Betting: Frankfurt 5/4, Draw 9/4, Wolfsburg 21/10
Selection: Double Chance Draw/Wolfsburg 13/20
Werder Bremen v Hannover (Sunday 18:30)
Sunday’s televised game sees Werder host Hannover and the visitors are a point better off in the mid to lower half of the league table. It’s worth pointing out that Hannover struggle away from home and they have yet to pick up a point or even score a goal in their four road trips this season. Werder are hardly prolific themselves and in a tricky looking betting heat, an interest in at least one side failing to score gets the the vote.
