Bundesliga Predictions, Live Stream and Odds 2021-22

Bundesliga returns. Quadrupling that happiness is the return of fans to the stadium. Bundesliga 2021-22 season will start with 50% capacity in the stadiums on 13 August 2021. Once again, Bayern Munich won the Meisterschale last season. 50+1 rule helped to maintain the integrity of German football amid the ESL drama last year.

A chain reaction unfolded in the managerial sphere. Celebrated coach of Bayern Munich, Hansi Flick, pursued national duty to leave the Bavarians. Bayern hired the young pretender Julian Nagelsmann from Leipzig, Marco Rose of Monchengladbach shifted to Dortmund, Adi Hutter of Eintracht Frankfurt went to Monchengladbach and the American coach Jesse Marsch was imported from RB Salzburg for Leipzig. Delivering a brilliant season at Wolfsburg, Oliver Glasner moved to Eintracht Frankfurt and Mark van Bommel replaced Glasner in Wolfsburg. Time has come to check the effectiveness of this merry-go-round.

Bundesliga Weekly Odds

The following matches are scheduled to take place this week, with odds derived from the bet365.com site:

Predictions:

Though Bundesliga’s 50+1 rule is widely acclaimed, the German league is heading to a similar fate as Ligue 1 in terms of competition. Bayern Munich are well on their way to capturing their tenth title in succession. While Dortmund go on intermittent streaks, they haven’t reached that level yet. If the Black and Yellows manage to turn around the fortunes, the fans can enjoy an exciting title race.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Augsburg

Bayer Leverkusen and Augsburg lock horns at BayArena on Matchday 20 of Germany’s top flight of football. Leverkusen are coming off a satisfying victory at Monchengladbach 1-2. Though they missed two penalties, one by Schick and another by Demirbay, thanks to Ian Sommer, Leverkusen still managed to win. Patrick Schick has scored 18 goals so far in 16 games. Paulinho, Exequiel Palacios, Julian Baumgartlinger, Charles Aranguiz and Daley Sinkgraven are on the treatment table. A point shy of the red zone, Augsburg are scoring in 1’s and 0’s in the past four games. The burden of eight losses is plunging them into the bottom. Tobias Strobl has injured his knee and will be on the sidelines. Augsburg direly need a goal scorer, the forwards aren’t scoring enough. Markus Weinzierl is changing the tides but he needs to speed if Augsburg should compete in the next season. Bayer Leverkusen have the upper hand in this game, but a stalemate is also a possibility.

Hoffenheim vs Dortmund

Sebastian Hoeness’ Hoffenheim are turning heads in Germany. They have lost six games but have enough wins to keep themselves in the fourth spot. On Matchday 20, Hoffenheim will host Dortmund at the PreZero Arena. Hoffenheim let the lossless streak slip through their fingers at Berlin. If not for an own goal by Union Berlin’s Timo Baumgartl, Hoffenheim would have found themselves on the wrong side of a clean-sheet victory. The injuries in Hoffenheim is rather concerning. Robert Skov, Marco John, Fisnik Asllani, Sargis Adamyan, Florian Grillitsch, Mijat Gacinovic and Pavel Kaderabek are on the injured list. Dortmund’s trajectory hasn’t been as expected under Marco Rose. Jadon Sancho’s departure and an injury hiatus for Erling Haaland have played a part. They lack the cutting edge to topple off a juggernaut like Bayern. Youssoufa Moukoko, Giovanni Reyna, Mahmoud Dahoud, Emre Can, Dan-Axel Zagadou and Thomas Meunier make the injury list. Hoffenheim wouldn’t be able to keep the travellers at bay in this fixture.

Hertha Berlin vs Bayern Munich

The Bavarians as usual thrashed up a side less successful than them in FC Koln 0-4. It helped them recover from a nasty defeat at home against Monchengladbach 1-2, a fortnight ago. Yet Bundesliga lacks the spark it needs to ignite a cutthroat competition at the top. Dortmund, the only club which trails by less than 10-points is in the second spot with 40 points. If not for a defeat at Hertha Berlin 3-2, Dortmund would have been more near Bayern in the title race. Hertha will surely have the idea of repeating their victory against Dortmund this weekend as they welcome Bayern Munich to Olympiastadion. Robert Lewandowski is the top scorer for Bundesliga with 23 goals. The injuries and Covid casualties in the Bayern camp include Kingsley Coman, Leon Goretzka, Josip Stanisic, Lucas and Alphonso Davies. Hertha Berlin haven’t been consistent and are three points off the relegation zone. Pal Dardai’s men lost the game against FC Koln 1-3 and drew the one with Wolfsburg 0-0, the two games which followed their Dortmund triumph. Stevan Jovetic, one of the key goal scorers, is injured. Pal Dardai won’t have to worry about the others. All said, beating the travellers is a herculean task for the hosts.
