Round 33 Recap: With both teams securing their Champions League places, champions Bayern Munich beat Leipzig 5-4 in a thrilling encounter. Despite being held to a 2-2 draw by Koln, Leverkusen secured their top-fight status for the next season. Hertha Berlin secured their lucrative Europa League position winning 2-0 away at Darmstadt. The last round of the German Bundesliga will take place this Saturday with all the fixtures starting at the same hour. There is plenty to play for as two teams are still fighting relegation and the European Cups places are still undecided. Let’s analyze the most interesting matches and find out the best value bets – goal-fest expected.
Bayern Munich vs. Freiburg
Bundesliga winners Bayern Munich host 6th place Freiburg. Bayern have nothing to fight for so we expect their manager to rotate the squad for this last match of the season. For Freiburg, this game is a must win as they are looking to secure their European Cup spot. But one thing is for sure, Bayern’s bench players will make it really tough for them because they are better than Freiburg’s starting XI. Bayern are coming after a great 5-4 away victory against Leipzig but that match seemed like a friendly encounter and we expect Bayern to have the same approach for this clash. A smart idea is to pass the winners market and focus on the goals market as we expect Freiburg to contribute on the scoreboard. Best pick for the match: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in the match at 1.9 with Bet365.
Dortmund vs. Werder Bremen
In my opinion, this match is the clash of the last round in the German Bundesliga. Both teams have something to fight for. Dortmund is trying to secure their 3rd position and qualify directly for the Champions League group stages while Werder are looking to finish the season in top six. Werder have scored at least 2 goals in each of their last nine league games. Dortmund have the second best attack in the league with 68 goals scored in 33 games with their star striker Aubameyang being 2nd in the top scorer standings with 29 goals scored this term. This match has the potential to be a goal-fest and the bookies are offering some really small set of odds for over 3.5 goals in the match at 1.5 with Bet Victor. But we are following the trend and expect Werder to continue their great attacking style and find the back of the net at least 2 times in the game. Best pick for the match: Werder to score over 1.5 goals in the match at 3.1 with Beffair.
Hamburger vs. Wolfsburg
Hamburger picked up a point last round away at Schalke (1-1) to keep them alive for another week in the relegation battle. It all comes down to one match, Hamburger versus Wolfsburg. They are separated by just two points in the standings meaning that for Hamburger this game is a must win. So they need to enter strong and motivated, give their best performance to stay another year in the German Bundesliga. Attacking midfielder Nicolai Müller has been missed by Hamburger but he could make his comeback this weekend against Wolfsburg. Best pick for the match: over 2.5 goals at 1.85 with Bet365
Hoffenheim vs. Augsburg
4th place Hoffenheim are looking to finish the season in style and win the final match of the season when hosting 14th place Augsburg. If they win this game they maintain the pressure on Dortmund and force them to pick up the three points against Werder. Augsburg have nothing to play for and they will not create a lot of problem to their hosts. We expect a clear home win with Hoffenheim covering the -1.5 AH. Best pick for the match: Hoffenheim to win with -1.5 AH (Asian Handicap) at 1.95 with William Hill.
