Ace Football presents exclusive betting tips for the Bundesliga games of the weekend.
As we prepare for another weekend of Bundesliga football, our experts take a look at the bookmakers’ predictions for the upcoming matches.
Let’s check out three betting tips for Matchday 18 of the Bundesliga season.
Goals likely on both ends when Hoffenheim meet Gladbach
Gladbach have lost both of their games since returning from the World Cup break. This weekend, they must take on Hoffenheim, who hope to end a run of seven winless games.
Given their impressive goalscoring consistency, we expect Hoffenheim to find enough chances at their home stadium.
However, the hosts’ poor defensive form, combined with Gladbach’s superior firepower, convinces us that we will see goals from both sides on Saturday.
Back Koln to beat Schalke
Schalke have lost their last three games in the Bundesliga, staying at the rock bottom of the German top flight.
Next up, the Royal Blues take on Koln, who held Bayern Munich to a 1-1 draw on Tuesday. The visitors’ solid defensive display against Bayern convinces us that they will give away few goalscoring chances on Sunday.
Schalke, on the other hand, have conceded nine goals in their last two games. They will most likely fail to prevent Koln from outscoring them in the upcoming match.
Expect goals when Freiburg host Augsburg
Freiburg come into their next game on the back of an impressive 1-1 draw against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Christian Streich’s side showed clear signs of defensive improvement compared to their 6-0 defeat against Wolfsburg. But we still expect them to face defensive problems against Augsburg’s in-form attacking line.
An open game is the most likely scenario for Saturday’s game, with both sides relying on their firepower.
