Best Price Game of the Week: Borussia Dortmund v Bayern Munich
Both sides have 100% records since the restart and with seven rounds remaining, Dortmund need a win to close the 4-point gap to league leaders Bayern. With Reus and Zagadou out plus Hummels doubtful, BvB coach Favre may need to drop the in-form Emre Can back into defence. An interesting stat for both teams – Dortmund, with 33 points from 13 games, have the best home record in the Bundesliga whilst Bayern are 17-1 winners in the past four fixtures between these clubs.
Latest Odds*: Borussia Dortmund 3.72 Draw 4.37 Bayern Munich 1.85
Bayer 04 Leverkusen v VfL Wolfsburg
Two victories and seven goals scored for Leverkusen recently suggests they are one of the form teams in the league but may be without defensive lynchpin Jonathan Tah. Wolfsburg edged past Augsburg but were outplayed by Dortmund and will be tough opponents with their strong defence and dangerous Wout Weghorst in attack.
Latest Odds*: Bayer 04 Leverkusen 1.73 Draw 4.21 VfL Wolfsburg 4.40
Werder Bremen v Borussia Mönchengladbach
Ramifications at both ends of the table as Bremen broke a long winless run to give themselves hope of escaping relegation with a 1-0 win at Freiburg but have selection issues with Bargfrede suspended and both Vogt and Augustinsson facing late fitness tests. Meanwhile, ‘Gladbach were anonymous in a lacklustre first half performance against Leverkusen but have plenty of depth and positive changes can be expected if key midfielder Denis Zakaria recovers from injury.
RB Leipzig v Hertha Berlin
Both teams are on cloud nine after five and four-nil victories in Round 27. Under new coach Labbadia, Hertha have returned to action with two wins, seven goals and none conceded. The new coach has re-introduced some mercurial talent previously banished to the reserves and shrugged off the loss of injured defenders Rekik, Stark and Wolf who all may return for this clash.
RBL Striker Timo Werner, expected to secure a transfer to the EPL soon, is in red hot form after a hat-trick last Saturday at Mainz.
Latest Odds*: RB Leipzig 1.33 Draw 5.70 Hertha Berlin 8.43
1. Union Berlin v FSV Mainz 05
A relegation six-pointer with both teams looking to bounce back from heavy defeats in the previous round. Winless in four and having failed to register a shot on target in a four-goal derby loss against Hertha, Union welcome back regular defenders Schlotterbeck and Lenz for this crucial clash.
Latest Odds*: Union Berlin 2.22 Draw 3.58 Mainz 3.20
TSG 1899 Hoffenheim v 1. FC Köln
Ninth versus tenth as out-of-form Hoffenheim dominated but struggled to break down bottom-of-the-league Paderborn last Saturday. Goalscoring remains a problem with top scorers Kramaric and Adamyan both still injured. Köln will be buoyed by a late comeback to draw 2-2 with Dusseldorf on Sunday as Colombian Jhon Cordoba equalised deep into injury time.
Latest Odds*: TSG 1899 Hoffenheim 2.38 Draw 3.66 1. FC Köln 2.88
