Monchengladbach v Hertha

You’ll Be Glad You Backed Few Corners at Hertha

Monchengladbach v Hertha

German Bundesliga trend followers will not look past Bayern Munchen win to nil for the best bet of the 11th round of games but one thinks that there is an even better exotic.

Monchengladbach, the only German Bundesliga team whose form numbers are close to those of Bayern Munchen, visits Hertha on Saturday and one rates under 10 and a half corner kicks in that match as the finest wager on this weekend’s program.

Both Hertha (11th) and Monchengladbach (14th) are placed on the bottom half of the German Bundesliga ladders for corner kicks gained, with the latter ranked equal fourth alongside Leverkusen for corners conceded. Consequently, it should not come as a shock to find that Hertha and Monchengladbach are proving profitable to follow for punters who like betting on under 10 and a half corner kicks. Six of Hertha’s 10 German Bundesliga games have gone under 10 and a half corner kicks, including three of its four home matches, the exception being its 12-corner clash against high-rating Stuttgart. Eight of Monchengladbach’s 10 German Bundesliga games have gone under 10 and a half corner kicks, including three of its five away games. Monchengladbach’s two German Bundesliga matches that have gone over 10 and a half corner kicks were its games at Bremen (11 corners) and Stuttgart (15 corners) of which the Foals gained just three of the set pieces.

Bookmakers are extremely slow to frame corner-kick markets but one is confident that the opportunity to bet on under 10 and a half corners in Saturday’s German Bundesliga game between Hertha and Monchengladbach will exist. Last term’s German Bundesliga matches between the teams resulted in corner-kick counts of six and seven, with neither side getting above four corners in either divisional game.

Now back to Bayern Munchen win to nil, which has been the outcome of each of the last six German Bundesliga matches between Frankfurt and the defending champion – Bayern’s victories have been 2-0 (home), 1-0 (away), 1-0 (away), 5-0 (home), 4-0 (away) and, most recently, 3-0 (home).

Bayern Munchen demonstrated its domestic superiority with a 3-1 German DFB-Pokal road defeat of Wolfsburg on Tuesday in which it raced into a 3-0 lead inside 34 minutes and only allowed the Wolves to score in second-half stoppage time. Any number of German Bundesliga records are in Bayern’s sights after kicking off its championship defence with 10 consecutive wins and 12th-placed Frankfurt ought to prove little more than a mild irritant for Pep Guardiola’s team having not accrued a divisional point in any of its games versus ranked higher than ninth on the league ladder.

William Hill is offering odds of -105 about Bayern Munchen overcoming Frankfurt without conceding a goal in Friday’s German Bundesliga round opener. Bayern has posted six wins to nil in its march to 30 German Bundesliga points.

Finally, Bremen cannot keep a clean sheet to save its life so one does not fancy its chance of obtaining anything from its German Bundesliga match against Dortmund on Saturday.

Even though Bremen broke its run of five straight German Bundesliga losses with a 3-1 win at Mainz last weekend it failed to register its first shutout of the season – actually, Werder have not kept a clean sheet since it defeated Frankfurt 1-0 at home late last term.

Dortmund, 12 rungs and 13 points above Bremen on the German Bundesliga ladder and backing up from a much softer German DFB-Pokal tie than Werder, is available at odds of -222 with Marathonbet to strengthen its grip on second place with a win.
