Many German clubs are present in the European cups at the moment and following good results in the last couple of years Germany has finally overtaken Italy’s third spot in the UEFA ranking which means that Germany will have four places in the Champions League the following years. Hopefully the German clubs will be able to capitalize on this and be even more successful in the future. In my opinion the German Bundesliga deserves much more media attention abroad with its packed stadiums, goal scoring clashes and genuine profiles!
If we take a look at the last match day of the league we can notice quite a few interesting results. HSV won “the Battle of the North” following a 4-0 victory over their fierce rivals from Bremen, all top 3 teams won their games and a struggling M’Gladbach managed to win at home to Schalke. Worth mentioning is also Frankfurt’s goal drought. The team from Hessen hasn’t scored one (!!) single goal in their last six games! Last time the team scored was in the year of 2010. The team performed really well last autumn but now seems to have forgotten where the goal of the opponents stands.
Looking ahead of the weekend in front of us the big clash will take place in Munich. The “Reds” entertain high-flying Dortmund at home and this might be the match of the season in Germany. Bayern Munich have managed to close in a few points on Dortmund and see their opportunity to get even closer if winning at home to Borussia. Bayern are scoring goal for fun at the moment but Dortmund will be keen on winning and finally burying Bayern’s remote chances of winning the title this year. It’s hard to make any predictions on which team will win this clash but don’t be surprised if we get to see many goals. What about 2-2 (odds: 12.0) or 3-3 (odds: 40.0) as a final result? If I can have a say about your plans for the weekend I urge you to look at the odds, place a bet, sit down comfortably and follow one heck of a game!
