Match Betting (1x2)

Bayern Munich are the reigning champions in Germany and this powerhouse are once again strong favourites to land the Bundesliga title, although the season has started with plenty of teams in the mix at the top of the table.

Niko Kovac’s team were only two points clear of Borussia Dortmund in the final standings last season and they sit second at the time of writing, having earned eighteen points from nine games played.

It’s a healthy enough return and they will be looking to make a statement of intent in this clash against a Dortmund side who will be arriving with the intention of winning the game themselves.

As you might expect, Bayern are big favourites to claim a maximum haul, with Ladbrokes offering a best price 8/15 about the champions.

Munchen’s start to the season hasn’t been without a few wobbles, with the team drawing one and losing one of their home games, although they did enjoy that massive Champions League win in London.

They are averaging three goals per home game and will be looking to outscore a Borussia Dortmund team who only managed to win one of their opening five away clashes.

Dortmund know that winning this game could be key to opening up the title race and you can get 9/2 about the visitors recording a famous victory, with the team having drawn several matches recently.

Ladbrokes have 17/5 that this clash ends all square, with Dortmund having drawn five of their previous eight games at the time of writing, while that outcome would be favourable for a fixture such as this one.

First Goalscorer

There are no more plaudits to be written about the impressive Robert Lewandowski. The Pole is smashing goal records on a regular basis and he’s firmly on course to score 50 goals for club and country this season.

The world’s leading striker is no bigger than 2/1 to break the deadlock in this clash and that’s a bigger price than you can normally find about a player who is absolutely deadly for the German champions.

At the time of writing, “Lewand” has 13 goals in nine Bundesliga matches and this is an unreal average which means that the top scorer award could already be firmly in the bag.

Serge Gnabry is an alternative for Bayern at a far bigger price, with the former Arsenal winger on nine for the campaign and relishing the big match opportunity, with odds of 9/2 available that he bags the first of the game.

Alternatively, Philippe Coutinho has notched a couple of goals since arriving on loan from Barcelona and the Brazilian is 8/1 to endear himself to the fans by breaking the deadlock.

Jadon Sancho is the English star who is tearing it up for Dortmund at the moment and he’s available at 11/1 to open the scoring for the visitors, while Paco Alcacer is the player who has bagged the most for the visitors and he’s an 8/1 chance.

Asian Handicap

We know that Bayern are likely to win the Bundesliga and that they are capable of scoring goals in large volume. Therefore, the Asian Handicap markets could be perfect for those that want to get with the home team but want to avoid betting at short prices.

You can back Bayern -1.5 at odds of 7/5 with Unibet, with the home side needing to win the game by at least two goals in order for this bet to profit. On a similar note, you can back Bayern -1 at 17/20 and that would mean money back if Munchen were victorious by one goal and a profit if the margin is bigger.

If you really fancy the home side, Unibet have 17/5 about Bayern -2.5 and a three-goal margin of victory or bigger would see you win with this bet.

Alternatively, those that fancy Dortmund to do well in this derby of sorts can back the visitors +1 at odds of 21/20 and that means money back if they lose by a goal but a profit if the game is level or in favour of the away team.

Both Teams to Score

Last season’s fixture ended 5-0 in favour of Bayern Munich and punters looking to back the “No” option on the Both Teams to Score market can find juicy odds of 7/4 with BetVictor, something that will appeal if you think the home team can shut out their opponents.

It’s understandable why the “Yes” option should be available as such a strong favourite considering that both teams will be going for it and the fixture in Dortmund last season ended 3-2 in favour of the home side. William Hill have 8/15 for those wanting to back that outcome.

Over / Under Goals

As mentioned, there were five goals scored in both games between these sides last season and you can get Over 4.5 Goals at 5/2 which could be an exciting bet if you’re planning to watch the game.

If you want to go for something a bit more modest, then Unibet have 27/25 about Over 3.5 Goals and that requires the net to bulge at least four times.

You can go against the grain and back Under 2.5 Goals at 2/1 which makes some appeal considering that Dortmund haven’t been at their exciting best this term.
