Borussia Monchengladbach vs. Werder Bremen predictions

Borussia Monchengladbach


Werder Bremen




Borussia Monchengladbach are expected to enjoy what would be their third win in four matches at the expense of Werder Bremen. While they have only lost once at Borussia-Park this season, they have turned in largely inconsistent home form and are yet to record back-to-back home victories. Both teams scored in all but one of their last 10 league fixtures.

Bremen picked up an important win over Augsburg at the weekend to move six points clear of the bottom three. They managed just one win in their last five away matches and can boast a solitary clean sheet on their travels this season. They have failed to beat Gladbach in their last 10 attempts.

Bayer Leverkusen vs. Borussia Dortmund predictions

Bayer Leverkusen


Borussia Dortmund




Borussia Dortmund are narrowly favoured to extend Bayer Leverkusen’s winless run to five matches in a clash between third and fourth. Leverkusen amassed a lone point from their last four games, falling from league leaders to seven points behind Bayern Munich in the process. Their 1-0 defeat to Union Berlin represented the first time they failed to score in seven league games.

Edin Terzic has made a respectable start to his stint as Dortmund interim manager, but was frustrated by a 1-1 draw against Mainz on Saturday. Dortmund collected 10 points from their last five away matches despite failing to keep a clean sheet during this run, and netted at least three goals in each of their last five meetings with Leverkusen.

Hertha Berlin vs. Hoffenheim predictions

Hertha Berlin






Hertha Berlin are predicted to edge Hoffenheim in a lower mid-table matchup. Hertha’s last five runouts brought as many points, but they collected seven from their last three home fixtures after a return of just one from their opening four. Hertha’s fixtures thus far have averaged exactly three goals per game.

Hoffenheim have been enduring similarly uninspiring form and sit a lone point behind their opponents in the Bundesliga table. Only Schalke (29) and Mainz (19) have conceded more away goals than Hoffenheim’s 17, and the visitors also have the third-worst expected goals conceded total in the division.

Mainz 05 vs. Wolfsburg predictions

Mainz 05






The market gives Wolfsburg just over a 50% chance of picking up their first win of 2021 from their visit to Mainz. A string of recent disappointing results has culminated in the former falling out of the top four, and they can only sport a solitary win away from home this season. Wolfsburg are overperforming against their expected goals conceded by the second largest margin in the Bundesliga.

Mainz are firmly entrenched in a relegation battle, presently sitting seven points from safety and with their winless streak now standing at eight matches. However, they are underperforming against both their expected points and expected goals by the largest margin in Germany’s top flight, indicating they could be due for an upturn in form.

Bet: Mainz 05 vs. Wolfsburg odds

Schalke 04 vs. FC Koln predictions

Schalke 04


FC Koln




The odds are struggling to determine a favourite among Schalke and Koln for a match between two of the bottom three. The pair can boast just three victories in 32 games between them this campaign, as well as the joint-second fewest goals scored (13). Schalke’s last home runout brought their first win in 30 league fixtures when they defeated Hoffenheim 4-0.

Koln’s last five matches brought only two points and more worryingly, they failed to score in all of them. However, they collected nine of the 12 league points they have earned in 2020/21 away from home, although the away team is winless in the last seven meetings between these two sides.

Bet: Schalke 04 vs. FC Koln odds

Arminia Bielefeld vs. Stuttgart predictions

Arminia Bielefeld






Stuttgart are predicted to claim what would be only their second win in six games when they face Arminia Bielefeld. The visitors have thus far enjoyed the best away record in Germany’s top flight, comprised of five victories in eight games and the most goals scored on their travels (21).

Bielefeld are currently languishing just above the bottom three, largely because they have scored the fewest goals in the Bundesliga (10). They have collected nine points from eight home games and been involved in a league-low two draws this season, including none at the Bielefelder Alm.

Bet: Arminia Bielefeld vs. Stuttgart odds

Augsburg vs. Bayern Munich predictions



Bayern Munich




Bayern Munich are expected to comfortably overcome Augsburg in what the market is indicating will be the biggest mismatch of the round. The visitors’ win over Freiburg established a four-point lead at the top of the table, although the league leaders have conceded just under two goals per game in their away fixtures thus far.

Augsburg will be aiming to avoid a fourth loss in five matches, having struggled for form since the turn of the year. The hosts are winless in five home games, during which they netted just four goals and failed to keep a clean sheet. Augsburg have not defeated Bayern in any competition since May 2015.

Bet: Augsburg vs. Bayern Munich odds

Freiburg vs. Eintracht Frankfurt predictions



Eintracht Frankfurt




The odds can barely separate Freiburg and Eintracht Frankfurt for what they are suggesting will be the most closely contested match of the round. Freiburg’s five-match winning streak was curtailed by Bayern Munich at the weekend, although they still enter this match following a return of 10 points from their last four home fixtures.

Frankfurt have enjoyed equally impressive recent results and will be aiming for a fifth straight win in their bid to reclaim a top six spot. However, their away form throughout the season has been more mixed and they only have collected three points at the Schwarzwald-Stadion on one occasion since September 2009.

Bet: Freiburg vs. Eintracht Frankfurt odds

RB Leipzig vs. Union Berlin predictions

RB Leipzig


Union Berlin




RB Leipzig are predicted to improve upon their recent shaky form by inflicting what would be only Union Berlin’s second loss since the opening weekend. A return of eight points from their last five games has lost the hosts ground in the title race, although only Bayern Munich have a better home record to their name this season.

As mentioned, Union are enjoying a run of just one defeat in 15 games, although it has featured an equal number of wins and draws (seven). Only two teams have conceded fewer away goals than Union’s nine, although they took a solitary point from their last five league meetings with Leipzig.

Bet: RB Leipzig vs. Union Berlin odds
