Competition: German Super Cup
Market: Bayern Munich to win in 90 minutes against Wolfsburg
Odds: 2/1 @ 888 Sport
Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich lock horns with DFB-Pokal Cup winners Wolfsburg in the German Super Cup this weekend. Pep Guardiola’s men are big favourites, but Wolfsburg have enjoyed a real resurgence in the last 12 months that could see them springing a surprise. They finished the previous season as runners-up in the table, losing the same amount of league games as the eventual champions.
As a result, Bayern are sure to be given a game on Saturday, with their opponents being the second-highest scorers in 2014/15. The likes of Player of the Year Kevin De Bruyne and prolific goalscorer Bas Dost could be key players in the Wolves side, but Bayern aren’t champions by luck. The German giants have been dominant in the Bundesliga, and would love to kick their season off on winning ways with a cup win.
Wolfsburg have actually beaten Bayern most recently in the league, running out 4-1 winners on home soil. And given the high-profile loss of long-serving Bastian Schweinsteiger, Guardiola’s side may not be ready for the challenge. 888 Sport are giving odds of 2/1 for the Wolves to win in 90 minutes against Bayern.
