Bayern Munich face off Stuttgart in the Bundesliga on Saturday with the Bavarians looking to create separation at the top after seeing their once upon a time big lead dissipating in recent weeks.
The visitors meanwhile can move up to 7th on the log should they manage to spring an unlikely upset on the league leaders.
We expect a potentially exciting game here and we will delve into the betting tips for this game as offered by 22Bet Welcome Bonus.
Bayern made the most of RB Leipzig’s draw against Frankfurt to widen the gap at the top of the table from two to four points with a 3-1 win at Werder Bremen last weekend for their third league win on the trot after they had tumbled a bit with a loss at Frankfurt and a disappointing draw at home to Arminia Bielefeld in their previous two fixtures that allowed the chasing pack to eat into their cushion at the top.
They extended their good run to the Champions League, qualifying for the quarterfinals after a 6-2 aggregate win over Lazio. This is the ninth time in 10 seasons that they’ve made it to the last eight of this competition.
Hansi Flick rested several key players for that second leg after they had basically sealed the deal with a 4-1 win in Rome in the first leg. They all should be fully rested and ready to go here.
Stuttgart have slowly climbed up the table on the back on solid performances in recent weeks. They are unbeaten in their last five games (3W, 2D) and have moved up to the top half of the table. With 9 rounds left to play, they certainly fancy their chances of not just staying in the top flight for a second successive season but possibly also making a run for the European places.
They play with tenacity and attack relentlessly and have been quite successful on their travels where they have done the most damage with 21 of their 36 points coming on the road.
Like Bayern, they too have relied on the raw talents of their 21-year-old forward Silas Wamangituka who has been in scorching goal scoring form scoring in their last 8 successive games. Pellegrino Matarazzo will look to him to lead the lines here.
We expect an all-out attacking spectacle here. Both teams have a wealth of attacking talents on display. Bayern’s defence has not been up to scratch this season. At the Allianz Arena, they have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last nine games and we do not envisage that run to end here. Their attack however is still elite and they could ultimately overrun Stuttgart. We, therefore, feel there is value in picking Over 3.5 goals @ 1.60 as our initial betting prediction here.
With goals looking likely in this game, we have opted for the goalscorer market for our final tip. Robert Lewandowski is the obvious choice here. The Bayern talisman is on an absolute tear this season to build on last season’s historic run. With 32 goals in 25 matches, he looks set to break Gerd Muller’s record of 40 goals. This game certainly fits his profile and we are backing him to open the scoring here @ 2.75.
