The Bundesliga is back and here at Bookies.com, we are outlining the five best bets to enjoy during the opening weekend of Germany's top-flight
Bundesliga action returns this weekend, with Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich aiming to once again dominate their domestic division, having done so last season by claiming their third consecutive and record 25th overall domestic crown.
As the German sides prepare for another exciting campaign, Bookies.com bring you the five best bets to back for the opening weekend.
Bayern Munich beat Hamburg by four or more goals
During last season’s supreme title triumph, Guardiola oversaw his Bavarians batter plenty of fellow German sides, especially Hamburg, who were on the end of an incredible 8-0 thrashing in February.
This sensational result followed a comfortable 3-1 win in the German Cup, and both 4-1 and 5-0 hammerings during the 2013/14 campaign, making Bayern a best-priced 19/10 with Boylesports to secure victory by four or more goals this time out too.
Schalke and Werder Bremen to draw 1-1
Both Schalke and Werder Bremen have a recent history of sharing the spoils in Bundesliga encounters, having drawn 1-1 in the previous two campaigns.
Back another 1-1 stalemate to occur at the Weserstadion at a tasty 7/1 with Bet Victor, with these teams having played out this scoreline three times in the last five seasons.
Borussia Monchengladbach win and both teams to score
In a successful last term, Gladbach impressively rallied to a third-place finish, behind only champions Munich and runners-up Wolfsburg in the German top flight table.
The rejuvenated outfit come up against a Dortmund side in transition, and who they have beaten three times in their last four meetings.
This includes a 3-1 win last term, as well as a 2-1 triumph the previous campaign, so back Lucien Favre’s men to overcome the Black and Yellows again and both teams to score at 15/2 with bet365.
Bayer Leverkusen to win to nil
Life without Roberto Firmino begins for Hoffenheim in their daunting opening clash with Leverkusen, a team which dispatched them without conceding in the last two match-ups.
Back another triumph without reply for the hosts at a best-priced 19/10 from Bet Victor, with Hoffenheim having been victorious in this fixture just once since December 2003, stretching back 15 competitive fixtures.
Kevin De Bruyne to score anytime
Speculation continues to surround Wolfsburg’s talented Belgium international playmaker De Bruyne, as he prepares for an opening clash with Eintracht Frankfurt, despite the advances from Manchester City.
Although, the clinical creative spark will undoubtedly have his mind firmly on helping his current employers making a great campaign start, and he is 8/5 with 888.com to strike anytime, having netted against Frankfurt last term.
