Match Betting (1x2)

It’s not been plain sailing for Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga this season, although the champions of Germany have weathered some early storms and they now sit top of the table and in the box seat to be crowned champions once again.

Hans-Dieter Flick has certainly steadied the ship after replacing Niko Kovac at the Allianz Arena, with Bayern having climbed several places in the table over the past few weeks and they recently enjoyed an eight-match winning run to stake their claim.

Flick’s team head to Koln for this weekend’s German Bundesliga clash and they are no bigger than 2/9 with bookmaker Ladbrokes to land another victory which would keep them at least a point ahead of Leipzig.

The top two teams played out a goalless draw last weekend at the Allianz Arena and Koln would clearly love to take a point from this upcoming clash, with the club stationed in thirteenth place in the table right now.

There doesn’t seem to be an imminent danger of relegation although points are still precious at this point in the season and Unibet have 6/1 about the clash ending all square in Cologne.

The home side have won 50% of their games on home soil this season and you’re able to get 11/1 with William Hill that they overcome Bayern and do Leipzig an enormous favour, although we’re not sure that they are capable of getting a maximum haul.

Asian Handicap

Before that goalless draw at the Red Bull Arena, Bayern Munich had been enjoying the winning habit and some of those scoreline had been pretty emphatic.

Indeed, the Bavarian side have averaged 2.5 goals per away game this season and some will be keen on the 11/20 about the visitors with a -1.5 Asian Handicap deficit which means they would need to win by at least two goals in order for the bet to profit.

Alternatively, you can get 28/29 about Bayern off an Asian Handicap mark of -2 and that means money back if they win by a two-goal margin and a profit if the margin is three goals or bigger.

To give you some examples, Bayern Munich have recently enjoyed a 4-0 win away to Hertha Berlin, while there was also a 5-0 thrashing of Schalke.

Indeed, when the teams met at the Allianz Arena, Bayern won by a 4-0 scoreline and you can get 27/20 about the visitors off a -2.5 goal handicap.

Both Teams to Score

Cologne have actually been in excellent form recently, scraping themselves off the foot of the Bundesliga table and working their way upwards at a steady rate.

Indeed, they have won five of their past six matches and found the net in all these games, so the “Yes” option on the Both Teams to Score market could be worth a play at 4/6 with William Hill.

Ultimately, this is a free hit for Koln and they might not be shy in coming forwards considering that they have scored fifteen goals in the past six matches.

We also know that Bayern Munich are capable of scoring goals in volume, although for those that think at least one team will keep a clean sheet, BetVictor have 11/8 about the “No” option instead.

Perhaps of more interest is the Total Goals betting market for this game where you can have a wager on whether we’ll see a certain number of goals scored throughout the ninety minutes.

William Hill have just 3/10 about Over 2.5 Goals, while punters can enjoy 8/11 about Over 3.5 Goals being scored and there is 6/4 on offer if Over 4.5 Goals are plundered during the ninety minutes.

First Goalscorer

There are no prizes for guessing which player sits top of the Bundesliga scoring charts and Robert Lewandowski is enjoying a typically fine season which has seen the Pole pilfer twenty-two goals.

Unibet offer 2/1 about the striker opening the scoring in this clash as he’s done on so many occasions this season, with Thomas Muller someone who has hit the scoring trail in recent weeks and the German international is 5/1 to break the deadlock.

Muller has scored seven goals in his last eleven appearances and could be on hand to find the net once again, while Koln’s best chance of scoring could come in the form of Jhon Cordoba.

The Colombian had only managed to score one goal up to 8 November, although he has since been able to fire in seven goals in nine appearances and perhaps he’s capable of causing a stir by breaking the deadlock at odds of 14/1.
