Both teams have scored in more Bremen matches than those of any other side in the German Bundesliga and one is picking Werder to feature in another such game on Saturday.
Both sides have found the back of the net in 20 of Bremen’s 28 German Bundesliga games, including nine of Werder’s 13 home matches and their 2-1 win at Augsburg in November’s reverse fixture. Bremen is one of two German Bundesliga teams not to feature a goalless game, with wooden spoon favourite Hannover being the other side. Both teams have got on the scoreboard in 17 of Augsburg’s 28 German Bundesliga matches, including nine of the Fuggerstadter’s 14 away games. Bremen’s defence is German Bundesliga’s most porous and Augsburg’s rearguard is the fourth worst so, with both sides likely to adopt positive tactics in the bid to land three crucial points, one is expecting goalmouth incident.
Bremen will host Augsburg in one of this weekend’s German Bundesliga relegation six-point matches and odds of -161 with Bet365 and BetVictor about both teams rustling the onion bag strike one as being the best bet on the card.
Anyone who followed one’s recommendation to back Augsburg in German Bundesliga relegation betting now has an opportunity to lay the Fuggerstadter. Augsburg has slid into the German Bundesliga drop zone following back-to-back losses to Dortmund and Mainz, defeats that have resulted in the Fuggerstadter’s 2016 divisional record going to 1-5-5.
Another German Bundesliga match in which one fancies both sides to score is Sunday’s Revierderby between Schalke and Dortmund. One would have been gearing up for a wager on Dortmund winning in Schalke’s Gelsenkirchen backyard had there not been a UEFA Europa League round scheduled for Thursday. According to one’s German Bundesliga collateral form analysis, Dortmund enjoys a 13-3-1 lead over Schalke, with BVB outperforming the Royal Blues 8-0-0 against teams in the top eight. Backing up from what promises to be an emotional reunion with Jurgen Klopp – he is the manager of Dortmund’s UEFA Europa League opponent, Liverpool – has the potential to take its toll on BVB, hence why one has chosen not to pick the Black and Yellows at odds on away from home.
Both teams have been on the mark in 17 of Dortmund’s 28 German Bundesliga games, including nine of BVB’s 14 away matches and their 3-2 win over Schalke in November’s reverse fixture. There has not been a clean sheet in 16 of Schalke’s 28 German Bundesliga games, including 10 of the 14 home matches that the Royal Blues have played. And both sides have scored in each of the last nine Revierderby clashes between Schalke and Dortmund in the German Bundesliga. BetVictor offer -167 on both teams finding the net.
In terms of German Bundesliga game bets, the most appealing option at the prices is Bayern Munchen at odds of -200 with Betfred, BetVictor and Totesport. Bayern Munchen’s midweek UEFA Champions League assignment is at home to Benfica on Tuesday so it has ample recovery time for Saturday’s visit to a Stuttgart team over which its superiority is evident.
Bayern Munchen boasts a 16-0-1 German Bundesliga collateral form advantage over Stuttgart, including a 4-0 home win in November’s reverse fixture. Stuttgart’s defence is not up to German Bundesliga standard – 56 goals conceded in its 28 matches – and Bayern Munchen cannot afford to coast given Dortmund’s proximity on the ladder with six rounds to go.
