Gameweek 25 of the 2019/20 German Bundesliga kicks off on Friday 6 March 2019. Check out our full betting preview below.

With just 10 rounds remaining, Bayern Munich lead by three points at the summit followed by Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund. Neither team can afford to slip up with the title race expected to go down to the wire. There are nine exciting fixtures scheduled for this weekend. Let’s get to it.

Friday 6 March

Paderborn 43/20
Draw 11/4
Cologne 11/10 

Paderborn look a shoo-in to be relegated with just four wins from 24 matches and remain 11 points off safety. Cologne have been in top form of late with back-to-back wins, scoring eight goals without conceding any. Cologne won the reverse tie 3-0 and offer great value to pull off the double here. The away win is well worth a punt. 

Saturday 7 March  

Bayer Leverkusen 7/10
Draw 31/10
Eintracht Frankfurt 34/10 

Bayer Leverkusen are coming off a hard-fought 1-1 draw away to Leipzig, which extended their unbeaten run to four matches. Eintracht Frankfurt have been poor of late with two defeats on the bounce, scoring only once and conceding six times. Bayer Leverkusen have won the last four meetings at home against Eintracht Frankfurt, scoring 16 goals and conceding just twice. The home win looks a top bet. 

Wolfsburg 3/1
Draw 11/4
Leipzig 17/20 

Wolfsburg are unbeaten in their last eight matches in all competitions with six victories and two draws. Leipzig are undefeated in their last five matches but have battled to maintain winning form and will be desperate to keep the pressure on Bayern Munich at the top of the table. The pair have already met at Volkswagen Arena this season in the DFB Pokal with the Redbulls winning 6-1. I doubt we will be treated to another high-scoring affair such as that, but Both Teams To Score – Yes – is tipped at 6/10. 

Hertha Berlin 23/20
Draw 49/20
Werder Bremen 9/4 

Hertha Berlin have registered just one win from their last six matches in all competitions and have suffered back-to-back defeats at home, scoring once and conceding eight times. Werder Bremen have been dismal with four losses from their last five travels. The corresponding fixture saw the sides play out to a 1-1 draw. That said, I’m leaning towards another low-scoring affair. Get on the Totals – Under 2.5 Goals – market at 9/10.

Freiburg 13/10
Draw 23/10
Union Berlin 2/1

Freiburg have been poor of late with back-to-back losses but impressed last time out despite going down 1-0 at Dortmund. However, Union Berlin have been impressive in recent weeks with two consecutive wins on the road and will be looking to build on that. An exciting matchup is on the cards with both sides likely to go in search of maximum points. Take Both Teams To Score – Yes – at 7/10.  

Schalke 23/20
Draw 51/20
Hoffenheim 43/20 

Schalke are without a win in their last five matches, including back-to-back defeats, conceding eight goals without scoring any. Hoffenheim were humiliated as a rampant Bayern Munich pulverized them 6-0 on home soil, stretching their winless run to four games. The Totals market is definitely worth looking at here with both sides struggling to find the back of the net. Under 2.5 Goals – Yes – is tipped at 11/10. 

Monchengladbach 21/10
Draw 28/10
Dortmund 11/10 

The Bundesliga match of the week will pit Monchengladbach up against city-rivals Dortmund. The hosts are unbeaten in their last five games and have won eight of their 11 home games. BVB have won three matches on the spin, scoring seven goals without conceding any. Dortmund have won the last 10 meetings in all competitions against Monchengladbach and while it won’t be a walk in the park, they definitely have the capability of making it 11 on the trot. The away win is tipped. 

Sunday 8 March  

Bayern Munich 1/10
Draw 9/1
Augsburg 18/1 

Bayern Munich have been in brilliant form as they remain unbeaten in their last 10 league games with nine wins. Augsburg are winless in their last four matches with three defeats and that doesn’t look likely to improve here. The Bavarians smashed Hoffenheim 6-0 last time out and I wouldn’t be surprised if they put up a similar result here. Both Halves Over 1.5 Goals – Yes – is tipped at 27/20. 

Mainz 19/20
Draw 26/10
Fortuna Dusseldorf 51/20 

Mainz are coming off a hard-earned 2-0 home win over bottom-dwellers Paderborn and will be looking to build on that. Fortuna Dusseldorf have managed just two wins from 12 travels and are four points adrift of their opponents. A cagey matchup is on the cards with both sides in danger of relegation. Get on the Totals – Under 2.5 Goals – at 5/4. 

Cologne Win 11/10
Bayer Leverkusen Win 7/10
Bayern Munich vs Augsburg Both Halves Over 1.5 Goals 27/20
