May 18th: Saturday’s Bundesliga Double – 9/1 Special, Betting Tips & Predictions

Watching Bayer Leverkusen make real history this season as they dethroned Bayern Munich, the 2023/24 Bundesliga campaign will draw to a close on Saturday afternoon.

As both Hoffenheim and Freiburg have one final chance to book a Europa Conference League ticket, we have a stacked German schedule on the cards.

For those of you looking to stick on a Saturday flutter, we have found a pair of the most intriguing Bundesliga betting markets.

14:30 Bayer Leverkusen vs Augsburg

Storming their way to a maiden Bundesliga crown this season and continuing to break a string of records, Xabi Alonso’s men are now just 90 minutes away from making more history. Remarkably not suffering a single defeat from any of their 33 top-flight appearances, the German high-flyers can officially be crowned as invincibles on Saturday afternoon.

Set to meet Italian outfit Atalanta on Wednesday night when they arrive in Dublin for this year’s Europa League final, Leverkusen will certainly be looking to make another statement here.

Last seen breezing their way to a 5-0 romp away at Bochum, the one-time Real Madrid midfielder has seen his squad gain a reputation for their free-scoring performances in the final third.

Not suffering a single defeat across any competition this season and with it already confirmed that Alonso will be staying put at the BayArena for the 2024/25 campaign, Saturday’s hosts have scored five goals in their back-to-back Bundesliga appearances.

In the midst of what has been an iconic fairytale, Leverkusen will be smelling another golden opportunity when they meet an Augsburg squad who are limping their way over the finishing line.

Although Jess Thorup’s men might open their season finale sat in the driving seat to punch a top-half finish, the Bavaria-based outfit have lost all of their previous four Bundesliga appearances by an aggregate score of 10-1.

Opening May with a 5-1 drumming at the hands of Champions League finalists Borussia Dortmund, Augsburg have endured a real struggle since returning from March’s international break.

Likewise, including consecutive a 3-1 loss against Hoffenheim on April 7th, the former Genk boss has seen his downbeat squad ship 11 goals in their last three showdowns outside of Bavaria.

Although Augsburg might have snatched a shock 2-1 victory when they travelled to the BayArena last season, Saturday’s guests couldn’t have asked for a tougher challenge this weekend.

14:30 Stuttgart vs Borussia Monchengladbach

While Stuttgart might have only just about clung to their Bundesliga status last season, Die Roten have endured a remarkable rise this time around. Firmly cementing their spot as one of Europe’s ultimate surprise packages this year, Saturday’s hosts have already cruised their way to a stunning Champions League ticket.

Opening May with a famous 3-1 romp at home against now-former champions Bayern Munich, Sebastian Hoeneß’s men have continued to receive a string of plaudits from across the continent.

Already wrapping up a bronze medal finish among Germany’s elite, Stuttgart have suffered just a single defeat from any of their previous 15 straight Bundesliga appearances – a purple patch that stems all the way back to January 20th.

With the mood around the MHPArena at a red-hot high, a huge part of Stuttgart’s success this season has been thanks to their attacking talisman.

While England skipper Harry Kane might have stolen most of Germany’s headlines this season, Serhou Guirassy has registered 26 goals in his 27 Bundesliga appearances.

Although Borussia Monchengladbach might have limped their way over the finishing line last week as they secured a 1-1 stalemate at home against Eintracht Frankfurt, Saturday’s guests have continued to show a string of glaring issues this year.

Including an action-packed 4-3 loss against Hoffenheim on April 20th, the Foals find themselves in the midst of a five-match winless rut.

Likewise, mustering just a sole victory from any of their previous 11 matchups across all competitions, Gerado Seoane’s men have drastically struggled to find any kind of stability on either side of Germany’s festive break.

Shockingly crashing out of the DFP Pokal on March 12th following an infamous 2-1 loss at the hands of third-tier outfit Saarbrucken, it should also be noted that Gladbach have recorded just a single win on their travels since the end of September.
