Bayern Munich’s shock home defeat to Gladbach before the international break made headlines across the globe but sadly it didn’t reopen the Bundesliga title race. The German champions still hold a 10-point advantage over their nearest rivals Wolfsburg and Pep Guardiola’s men remain in full control at the top of the table.
Wolfsburg failed to take advantage of that slip up as Dieter Hecking’s men were held in Mainz but we should expect the Wolves to come tearing out of the blocks again this weekend as they return to their feared Volkswagen Arena den.
The Wolves have been almost faultless on home soil, returning outstanding W11-D2-L0 figures from their 13 fixtures in front of their home supporters and Wolfsburg should enhance that record further on Saturday when struggling Stuttgart visit.
Odds wise, Wolfsburg -1/1.5 a 2.05 chance on the Asian Handicap line and that looks the best value bet from this showdown. With this selection, we’ll pocket a full pay-out should the hosts win by a margin of two goals or more and only lose half our stake if Hecking’s charges run out winners by a solitary goal.
The Wolves have secured six of their 11 victories by a margin of two goals or more and come up against a Stuttgart side that’s W0-D2-L9 of their 11 games against teams in 7th and above. In two of their three trips to top-seven clubs, the Swabians have lost by more than a solitary goal and Huub Stevens’ men are looking like relegation material at the bottom of the Bundesliga.
Meanwhile, Hertha Berlin look tasty 1.98 shots to overcome a -0.50 Asian Handicap start against freefalling Paderborn on Easter Sunday. The capital club appear to have found a bit of form under interim boss Pál Dárdai who’s guided the Old Lady to eight points from their previous four outings.
Those results have lifted Hertha four points above the drop zone and they’ll be hoping to put further distance between themselves and relegation by making it 10 defeats in 16 for Paderborn. The newcomers have won just once in 15 fixtures and have failed to even score in eight of their last nine.
We’ll be in profit should Berlin come out on top at the Olympic Stadium on Sunday and with close to even-money on offer, it makes plenty of sense to invest our faith in the capital club.
