Bet on Bundesliga football

13.05.2020

After weeks of uncertainty, we can finally look forward to football in one of the world’s biggest leagues. The honour to kick off European football again goes to the German Bundesliga. From Saturday May 16, regular football matches will return to our screens, and of course, the betting options follow. Let’s look at some of the most interesting games and see if there’s anything we can take away for a big betting win. Ready to use your football knowledge once again?

Borussia Dortmund – Schalke 04 (Saturday May 16, 3.30 p.m.)

As the Bundesliga currently stands, Bayern Munich is leading with 55 points, but with 51 points, Borussia Dortmund still has a fair shot at playing for the title. This upcoming weekend, Dortmund meets Schalke 04 in a regional derby – the Revierderby. Schalke 04 currently takes the sixth place with 37 points, and holds a slight historical edge on their regional rivals.

However, the gap with fifth-placed Bayer Leverkusen is no less than 10 points, so a fifth place is a faraway dream for now. At the same time, Wolfsburg is hot on the tail of Schalke with 36 points so far. As the sixth place entitles teams to play for Europa League qualification, Schalke will need a big performance to keep itself in the running here!

Eintracht Frankfurt – Borussia Mönchengladbach (Saturday May 16, 6.30 p.m.)

Borussia Mönchengladbach picks up where it left off from a fourth position in the league. With 49 points, it can overtake its nearest competitors and take second place – that is, if both Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig fail to make points. The black-and-white Foals visit Eintracht Frankfurt for a shot at skipping to second place.

While it may seem like a doable task, Eintracht Frankfurt is never to be trifled with. The Eagles may only be in a twelfth position in the Bundesliga, but this hardly reflects their historical importance in the Bundesliga. With plenty of competition itching to get ahead just below them, they will surely fight with all they have to get a positive result.
