Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund must take all three points against Fortuna Dusseldorf, while Bayer Leverkusen host Schalke
We could see a champion crowned in the penultimate round of Germany’s Bundesliga this coming weekend, with defending title holders Bayern Munich facing a tough trip to RB Leipzig – win, and they will retain the crown. On the same day, title challengers Borussia Dortmund host Fortuna Dusseldorf, while Bayer Leverkusen could move into the top four with a victory over Schalke and depending on how other results go.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, let’s start with the clash between RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich. RB Leipzig are unbeaten in their last eight matches across all competitions, winning seven of them – without doubt they are the in-form side in Germany right now and can come into this match absolutely brimming with confidence.
Bayern Munich, by way of comparison, are unbeaten in their last nine matches across all competitions and sit four points clear at the top of the table with just two matches left to play. They are now priced at just 1.025 to win the league title for the seventh season in a row.
And it is indeed Bayern who come into this match as the red hot favourites to take both the points and the title. You can back the visitors to win at just 1.61 while RB Leipzig, despite home advantage, are out at 5.00 to pick up the win – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.00, according to Oddsshark.
We believe however that home advantage could well be a decisive factor in this fixture. A narrow, 2-1 victory for RB Leipzig is priced competitively at 15.00, thereby offering well over a ten-fold return on any investment, while a combo bet of a RB Leipzig win, coupled with both teams to score, is at 7.00.
Dortmund must beat Dusseldorf to stay in contention
On the same day, Borussia Dortmund must take all three points against Fortuna Dusseldorf if they are to have any chance of claiming the league crown. Having taken just one point from their last two league outings they are now all the way out at 17.00 to finish top of the pile.
Fortuna, by way of comparison, are not in great form themselves, having lost two of their last four league contests, winning just one of them. With little left to play for this season they may well lack intensity on Saturday however.
And it is indeed Borussia Dortmund who come into this match as the clear favourites to take all three points. You can back the home side to win at just 1.28, while Fortuna Dusseldorf are out at 8.50 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 6.00.
This should be a fairly comfortable afternoon’s work for the home side. A 3-1 win for Dortmund comes in at 10.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$50 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing a combo bet of a Dortmund win, coupled with both teams to score, at 2.10.
Bayer could go fourth with win over Schalke
And finally, Bayer Leverkusen will be looking to go fourth with a victory over Schalke on Saturday afternoon. Bayer have won their last four league matches in a row and sit fifth in the table, level on points with Eintracht Frankfurt above them – they are priced at just 1.66 to finish in the top four.
Schalke, meanwhile, have won just one of their last five league matches and sit fourth from the bottom. Safe from relegation, it has nevertheless been a dreadful campaign for the giants.
And it is Bayer Leverkusen who come into this match as the favourites to collect what could turn out to be three hugely valuable points. You can back the home side to win at just 1.36, while Schalke are out at 7.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 5.25.
And Bayer’s excellent recent form should see them through this latest test. A 2-1 win for the home side is priced at 9.00, while you can more than double your money by backing a combo bet of a Bayer win, coupled with both teams to score, at 2.37.
