Welcome back to Last Word On Football’s Bundesliga previews and predictions. We have reached the 30th round of games in the Bundesliga. Leaders Bayern Munich head to Bayer Leverkusen in a crucial clash at the top of the table.
Borussia Dortmund fresh off putting six past Paderborn head to resurgent Hertha Berlin. Elsewhere, Borussia Monchengladbach head to SC Freiburg, RB Leipzig host Paderborn, Schalke head to Union Berlin and in form Eintracht Frankfurt host Mainz.
Bayern Munich Head to Bayer Leverkusen
Leaders Bayern Munich travel to Bayer Leverkusen hoping to take another step towards the Bundesliga title. Hansi Flick’s team are in thunderous form winning their last seven league games.
This game is must-win for Bayer Leverkusen as they continue to push for a Champions League spot. Peter Bosz’s young team struggled in their last home game losing 4-1 to Wolfsburg. However, they do always seem to put in a performance against Bayern Munich and Bosz will be confident his side can spring another surprise.
Kai Havertz will be vital for Leverkusen’s chances of success this weekend as they look to put the pressure on the sides above. The talented midfielder is enjoying a terrific season and was on song in their last game against Freiburg.
A crucial clash for both sides at the top of the table.
Bundesliga Predictions: Two Sides in Rotten Form Clash as Schalke Head to the Capital
Two sides in desperate need of a win clash in the capital as Union Berlin welcome Schalke. Its been a difficult time for both sides since the season resumed in May.
Union Berlin’s form has been hugely disappointing collecting just one point from their last four league games. That form has seen them sink down the table to a point where they find themselves just four points clear off the bottom three.
Schalke’s form is no better with Die Königsblauen winless in eleven games. They have lost their last four league games and the pressure is increasing on David Wagner. They must win to ignite their season and ease the pressure on the manager. Their big players have struggled for form and confidence in 2020 and Wagner needs to reignite the spark that saw Schalke have an excellent first half of the season.
