Best Price Game of the Week: SC Paderborn 07 v Borussia Dortmund (18th v 2nd)
Dortmund must bounce back from a title-crushing loss to leaders Bayern in a tight game that could’ve gone either way. In the end, a poor goalkeeping error gave Bayern the vital 3 points. Top scorer Jadon Sancho could return to the starting XI here despite an ineffective second half midweek performance but more importantly, wonderkid Erling Håland will miss out with a minor injury.
Freiburg v Bayer Leverkusen (8th v 5th)
Leverkusen suffered a shock 4-1 defeat against Wolfsburg whilst Freiburg will be disappointed by Frankfurt’s late comeback in their 3-3 draw. Freiburg could easily be fresher after rotating in the 6-goal thriller and should benefit from another match with their new 4-4-2 formation. Freiburg have proved themselves to be durable opposition against superior sides in recent years and haven’t lost a home game to Leverkusen in 10 consecutive matches. There's an outside chance of influential striker Kevin Volland returning for Bayer but he's more likely to keep the bench warm for most of the game.
Latest Odds*: Freiburg 4.82 Draw 4.05 Leverkusen 1.72
Schalke v Werder Bremen (9th v 17th)
An awful run of results sees Schalke as the side to accumulate the least amount of points since the break, culminating in a 10-game winless streak. Whilst injuries have been a factor, coach Warner hasn’t found a successful formation despite multiple attempts. One point and no goals in the past two games suggests Bremen’s problems are offensive rather than defensive.
Latest Odds*: Schalke 2.54 Draw 3.41 Werder Bremen 2.82
Bayern Munich v Fortuna Dusseldorf (1st v 16th)
Bayern are seven points clear with six matches remaining following their 1-0 win in Dortmund. No fresh injury news for either team, but bizarrely Dusseldorf can claim four successive draws but with four unique draw results!
Latest Odds*: Bayern Munich 1.07 Draw 12.5 Fortuna Dusseldorf 31.7
Borussia Mönchengladbach v Union Berlin (4th v 13th)
Both teams drew in midweek but Union played much of their game with 10 players so fatigue could be a factor in their third game in a week. Both sides have one replaceable suspension and only 'Gladbach’s livewire striker Embolo is facing a late fitness test.
Köln v RB Leipzig (11th v 3rd)
Another disappointing Leipzig performance in a 2-2 draw with Hertha, whist Köln won’t be happy with the same score line at home to Dusseldorf. Multiple suspensions and injuries for both teams, none of which are considered key players.
Latest Odds*: Köln 5.83 Draw 4.61 RB Leipzig 1.53
