BUNDESLIGA PREVIEW: GW30
Another week in German football sees a number of intriguing fixtures with plenty still to play for at both ends of the Bundesliga. Here, SportPesa looks at a few highlight fixtures with a number of selections worth keeping an eye on.
Bayer Leverkusen v Bayern Munich
Can anyone put a dent in Bayern Munich’s impressive run? After registering a series of one-sided victories, Bayern should surely be tested when they visit Leverkusen, but do Peter Bosz’ side have what it takes to keep their own notable form intact. With only one loss in their last six games, Leverkusen will be confident of securing an upset, but several other teams have approached Munich in such a manner and they’ve all been put to the sword.
Bayern’s scoring run has been stunning in recent weeks and with this dynamic teams sharing the goals among the team, the reliable goalscoring prowess of Robert Lewandowski has been hard to detect over the last few weeks when assessing first goalscorer markets. The Polish hitman seems to have found his best form once more and he should be backed to open the scoring with Bayern registering another three points.
Red Bull Leipzig v Paderborn
Will the focus on this fixture fall on Timo Werner with the German marksman set to join Chelsea in a major deal? Werner has been a revelation for Leipzig since joining the club in 2016 and with his career at Red Bull seemingly ending, he’ll be desperate to propel his side into the Champions League next season as they welcome basement club, Paderborn.
Unbeaten in ten games, Leipzig will surely extend that against Paderborn, who haven’t won in ten fixtures. Favouring the form then it’s hard to look past an impressive Red Bull win. Werner will want to prove to Leipzig supporters that his mind is very much on the job amid the Chelsea speculation and him scoring first appears likely as his name seems set to remain in the headlines.
Borussia Dortmund v Hertha Berlin
Two in-form sides clash this weekend as Borussia Dortmund take on a resurgent Hertha Berlin side in a contest that could be pouring with goals. Since football resumed in Germany, it’s been Dortmund, Hertha and Bayern providing the entertainment, and two of those sides square off this Saturday.
With goals throughout the team, Dortmund can score at will, but Hertha seem to have adopted a similar approach to this weekend’s opponents and their attacking play has been well received by their supporters. Goals appear to be guaranteed and the over markets in that area are very appealing.
