Bundesliga betting tips: Lewandowski eyeing scoring record
Preview and odds for the key matches in Germany
There is plenty at stake in the final round of action on Saturday as we pick out some potential Bundesliga betting tips.
Four teams are vying for a place in the inaugural Europa Conference League next season, three clubs are fighting to avoid relegation and there is a goalscoring record up for grabs in Bavaria.
Here we have analysed the latest Bundesliga odds as we preview three key fixtures.
Bayern Munich v Augsburg (Saturday, 14:30)
Robert Lewandowski equalled Gerd Muller’s record of 40 goals in a season in the 2-2 draw at Freiburg last week.
The Poland international came close to breaking the 49-year mark in that match too but Bayern’s lethal marksman has another chance to get over the line in his 29th and final game of the season for the champions.
It would not be a surprise to see his team-mates doing all they can to help, against their Bavarian rivals. Bayern Munich to win and Lewandowski to have three or more shots on target is 4/7.
Union Berlin v RB Leipzig (Saturday, 14:30)
Union have been punching above their weight since they were promoted to the Bundesliga in 2019 and will ensure European qualification with a win.
Although a game against second-placed RB Leipzig may not appear ideal, the visitors have patchy recent form and are guaranteed second place – irrespective of the outcome at the Stadion An der Alten Forsterei.
Union are unbeaten at home since the opening day of the campaign and can be backed at 11/10 to open the scoring against a Leipzig side who have conceded first in their last two games.
Werder Bremen v Borussia Monchengladbach (Saturday, 14:30)
This is a game with plenty at stake at both ends of the table as Marco Rose takes charge of the visitors for the last time.
Gladbach are best placed to capitalise if Union do slip up and they could have been facing tougher tests than this one against a team who appear to be sleepwalking into the second tier.
Werder are unravelling, with just one point from the last nine games, and time is almost up. Currently in the relegation play-off place, Thomas Schaaf and his team are well aware that second from bottom Koln’s home match against hapless Schalke makes them vulnerable.
History is not on Werder’s side in this fixture either, having not beaten their opponents in 10 matches.
Alassane Plea has scored three goals in his last six games and is 30/1 to score the first goal in a 2-1 away victory.
Monchengladbach to win, Plea to have two or more shots on target and Jonas Hofmann to have an assist is available at 17/2.
