Ace Football presents detailed betting tips on the upcoming Bundesliga games of the weekend.
As we prepare for the opening matchday of the Bundesliga season, our experts take a look at the bookmakers’ predictions for the upcoming matches.
Let’s check out three betting tips for the first Matchday of the new Bundesliga campaign.
Expect goals when Stuttgart host RB Leipzig
RB Leipzig started the new season with a 5-3 loss to Bayern Munich in the German Super Cup.
Die Roten Bullen will face Stuttgart in their Bundesliga opener on Sunday, hoping to bounce back from the Bayern defeat.
Given their recent attacking numbers, we expect Leipzig to push for outscoring Stuttgart in the upcoming match.
However, their offensive moves will most likely provide the hosts with enough space to create goalscoring chances themselves.
We expect to see an action-packed game as both sides have a high probability of finding the back of the net on Sunday.
Back Koln to open season by beating Schalke
Schalke will face Koln in their first match after returning to Bundesliga this season.
The Royal Blues suffered a 3-1 defeat against Twente before starting their DFB-Pokal with a crushing win over Bremer SV last Sunday.
Despite showing improvements in their attacking line, Schalke will most likely struggle to score against Koln’s in-form backline.
On the other hand, Koln’s brilliant record on home soil convinces us they can edge out their newly-promoted rivals in their Bundesliga opener.
Don’t expect goals when Mainz take on Bochum
Maniz start their Bundesliga campaign on the back of an impressive pre-season campaign.
After defeating Newcastle and drawing against Athletic Bilbao, the 05ers smashed Erzgebirge 3-0 in DFB Pokal last weekend.
We expect Mainz to maintain their defensive integrity when they meet Bochum on Saturday.
On the other hand, their recent goal numbers don’t convince us they can create many chances in the upcoming match.
