Friday 11 June

20:30 – Hoffenheim (6.30) v RB Leipzig (1.43)

Hoffenheim are on a 4 match unbeaten run (W2, D2), scoring 1 first-half goal in all 4 (HT: W2, D2) and with both teams scoring in 3. One of these wins marked just their second clean sheet this year (W4, D4, L5) with Hoffenheim seeing only 2 goalless first halves in 2020. At home, the hosts have drawn only once in 15 league games (W6, L8) losing ‘to-nil’ in 4 of the 8 home defeats, including the last two.

 RB Leipzig are unbeaten in 11 matches (W4, D7) and kept a clean sheet on 5 times (W3, D2. Impressively, the visitors have shut out the opposition in 4 of their last 5 away league games (W3, D2). Leipzig are also yet to concede more than 2 in any half of away football. They also won the reverse fixture 3-1 earlier in the season.

Best Bet: BTTS and no draw at 1.95

Saturday 12 June

15:30 – Fortuna Düsseldorf (8.00) v Borussia Dortmund (1.36)

Fortuna Düsseldorf have lost just 1 of their last 8 matches (W2, D5, L1), but are still in a deep relegation scrap. Their last 3 losses were by at least a 3-goal margin, as did the reverse fixture against Borussia Dortmund. They’ve lost 10 consecutive matches against the Bundesliga’s current top five. However, at home, they’re unbeaten in their last 4 games (W1, D3), and have seen both teams score in 5 of the last 6. 

Dortmund have won 9 of their last 9 Bundesliga matches, with five of those victories coming despite a -1 handicap. Their 1-0 win over Hertha last weekend was their third game from the last 5 to see under 2.5 goals, a joint league-high 19 of their Bundesliga fixtures this season have produced over 3.5. Away from home, they’ve won four straight Bundesliga matches. 

Best Bet: Borussia Dortmund (-1) at 1.90

18:30 – Bayern Munich (1.38) v Borussia Monchengladbach (7.50)

6 of Bayern Munich’s 12 league wins this year have yielded a margin of 3+ goals. Bayern have averaged precisely 3.0 goals per match and outscored opponents by an exact 3:1 ratio (GF 90, GA 30). After a 5-0 rout of Fortuna Düsseldorf, Bayern are currently unbeaten in eight Bundesliga home fixtures (W7, D1). 

Borussia Mönchengladbach lost 1-0 to Freiburg last week to make their record (W2, D1, L2) after the restart. Across those 5 games, 3 saw over 2.5 goals. Interestingly, fourth-placed Mönchengladbach beat Bayern 2-1 in the reverse fixture.

Best Bet: Bayern Munich win and BTTS at 2.15

Sunday 13 June

18:00 – Schalke 04 (5.80) v Bayer Leverkusen (1.55)

Schalke’s winless run is now at 12 matches (D5, L7) after their 1-1 daw with Union Berlin. As such, 13 Schalke’s 30 Bundesliga matches have see under 2.5 goals, which is little surprise considering the ‘Königsblauen’ have failed to score in a league-high 10 matches this season.

Bayer Leverkusen are chasing a UCL spot will likely take everything or nothing from this match as they have drawn just 1 of their last 18 matches (W12, L5). Matches haven’t been too close of late, with 5 of their last 6 league outings being settled by at least a two-goal margin. They have won in 8 of their 11 Bundesliga away games when the bookie’s favourites. they also beat Schalke 201 in the reverse fixture.

Best Bet: Under 2.5 goals at 2.10
