30th May: Saturday’s Bundesliga Accumulator – 6/1

With the Bundesliga once again taking center stage from behind closed doors this weekend, Saturday offers what should be another lively afternoon from across Germany. On that note, for those of you who are looking to put on a weekend acca, we have found you a handful of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for on Saturday afternoon.

Saturday 30th May

BST 14:30 Wolfsburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt

Starting with Saturday’s hosts, putting in what was a stunning display in midweek and picking up a dominant 4-1 romp away at Champions League contenders Bayer Leverkusen, the mood in Wolfsburg’s camp is certainly on the rise. With so many around them in the race to secure a European finish continuing to slip up, Oliver Glasner’s men open this weekend holding a three-point buffer in that lucrative sixth-spot. Really looking to build off of what some are calling a season-best display on Tuesday night, a 2-0 defeat against Borussia Dortmund last weekend is Die Wölfe’s sole Bundesliga defeat in their last nine outings, a run that stems back to the end of January. With midfielder Renato Steffen once again finding the net in midweek and now recording four goals in his last six Bundesliga outings, Wolfsburg should certainly be relishing Eintracht Frankfurt’s arrival this weekend. Despite coming from 3-1 down to snatch a point against Freiburg on Wednesday night, the Eagles find themselves firmly in the midst of a real crisis. Now holding just a two-point buffer over slipping into the drop zone, last year’s European qualifiers have failed to win any of their last six top-flight outings, losing five of those matchups. Along with losing their last three Bundesliga matches on the road, Saturday’s guests have conceded a stunning 13 goals on that losing run on their travels, including back-to-back 4-0 drummings against BVB and Bayer Leverkusen. In a real battle between the in-form vs the out of form, it is hard to see anything other than a Wolfsburg win at the Volkswagen Arena this weekend.

Tip: Wolfsburg win and over 1.5 goals @ 11/8

14:30 Hertha Berlin vs Augsburg 

Really making another statement away at the Red Bull Arena in midweek and collecting what was a more than deserved point away at the title outsiders, Hertha Berlin have really caught the eye following their return from the enforced break. With many across Germany feeling that they were unlucky not to have collected maximum points on Wednesday evening, the Old Lady have collected seven points out of a possible nine since returning to action. Even more impressive, along with marking their return earlier in the month with what was a rampant 3-0 romp away at fading European contenders Hoffenheim, Bruno Labbadia’s men really made a statement in an action-packed Berlin derby last weekend. Led by the red-hot Matheus Cunha who has recorded four goals in his last five Bundesliga outings, Hertha’s thumping 4-0 win against bitter rivals Union last week has seen the mood in their camp only continue to skyrocket. Really reigniting their own European charge and unbeaten in their last five top-flight appearances, Hertha should be looking to make another statement this weekend and cash in on their recent purple patch. On the flip side, despite marching to victory away at a struggling Schalke last week, Augsburg have continued to show some worrying inconsistencies. Only managing to play out what was a sluggish 0-0 stalemate against rock-bottom Paderborn in midweek, Saturday’s guests still find themselves looking over their shoulder at the drop zone and the Whites have won just a single Bundesliga match in their last eight attempts.

Tip: Hertha Berlin win @ 10/11

17:30 Bayern Munich vs Fortuna Dusseldorf 

Picking up what most are calling a title-winning victory away at Borussia Dortmund in midweek, it appears that Bayern Munich already have one hand on their eighth consecutive Bundesliga crown. Landing a 1-0 win in rural Germany and really returning from the enforced break where they left off in March, Hans-Dieter Flick’s men appear to only be going from strength to strength. Picking up nine points out of a possible nine since returning to action, a run highlighted by a 5-2 romp against Hoffenheim last weekend, the Bavarians open up Saturday’s contest holding a seven-point buffer at the top of the table. Also seen as one of the leading contenders in this year’s Champions League after blowing away Premier League outfit Chelsea 3-0 at Stamford Bridge prior to the break, Bayern have won their last nine matches across all formats and have continued to put on a clinic in front of goal. Along with leading marksman Robert Lewandowski continuing to break records at the Allianz, one man to keep an eye out of this weekend should be former Arenal starlet, Serge Gnabry. Including finding the net when he faced off against Fortuna Dusseldorf earlier in the season, the German ace has recorded 23 goals for club and country this season and has really enjoyed a breakout year for the defending champions. On the flip side, while Fortuna may have managed to come from behind to snatch a 2-1 victory off of a struggling Schalke in midweek and enjoying their brightest run of the season so far, there is no doubt that Saturday should be an overwhelming test for the relegation scrappers. Still sat a point adrift of safety and hit with back-to-back 4-0 and 4-1 drummings against Munich, we’re backing a similar rampant display this weekend.
