The Bundesliga continues to be played behind closed doors, with football fans from all over the world tuning in to get their football fix. The ghost games have been up and running for 3 game weeks in Germany’s top-flight and once again it appears Bayern Munich look set to reign supreme. Following their win over closes rivals Borussia Dortmund last time out, Munich sit 7 points clear with only 6 game weeks remaining. Elsewhere, the likes of RB Leipzig, Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen are all locked in a race for a top 4 finish meanwhile the relegation battle continues at the foot of the table.
Here are our picks for the next round of fixtures in the Bundesliga:
2019/20 Bundesliga Matchday 29 Preview
SC Freiburg vs Bayer Leverkusen – Schwarzwald Stadium
SC Freiburg ($4.8)
Bayer Leverkusen ($1.75)
Bayer Leverkusen will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing defeat to Wolfsburg last time out as they travel to SC Freiburg. Hosts Freiburg have yet to win a game since returning to action but showed positive signs in their 3-3 draw at Frankfurt last time out and they look to be safe from relegation danger, currently sitting 8th in the table. Leverkusen meanwhile were thumped at home by Wolfsburg in midweek but only sit outside the top 4 on goal difference. This should be a good game in Freiburg with Leverkusen most likely to take the spoils.

Hertha Berlin vs Augsburg vs – Olympic Stadium
Hertha Berlin ($1.95)
A classic mid table battle looks to be on the cards as Hertha Berlin take on Augsburg. The hosts have been in fantastic form since returning to action, picking up 7 points from a possible 9 – including a very creditable 2-2 draw on the road at RB Leipzig. Augsburg sit 12th, 4 points above the relegation picture currently but they are sure to be buoyed following their superb win on the road at Schalke last time out. With both sides seemingly safe, this could be an exciting clash at the Olympic Stadium, with Hertha looking good value for the win.

Mainz 05 vs Hoffenheim – Opel Arena
Mainz 05 ($2.88)
Bundesliga survival will be very much on the agenda at the Opel Arena as Mainz welcome Hoffenheim. The hosts have yet to win a game since returning to action, having drawn 2 of their last 3 games and they will need to start picking up points more regularly to fully ensure their place in the division next season. Hoffenheim meanwhile sit 7th and a late push for the Europa league places looks very much on the cards. They broke their barren run with a solid win over Koln in midweek and they will be keen to kick on here. This could be a tight game with a draw looking the most likely result.

Schalke vs Werder Bremen – Veltins Arena
Werder Bremen ($2.93)
Werder Bremen look to be clinging on to their Bundesliga status by a thread and they will be targeting points on the road at Schalke this weekend. The hosts have lost all 3 of their games since returning to action, conceding 9 goals in the process and they have dropped down to 9th in the table. With the pressure mounting on manager David Wagner, it looks to be now or never for Schalke. Werder Bremen meanwhile are currently 6 points adrift of safety but have shown signs of recovery since returning to action – picking up 4 points from their opening 3 games. This should be a cagey affair in Schalke, with a draw looking very much on the cards.

Wolfsburg vs Eintracht Frankfurt – Volkswagen Arena
Eintracht Frankfurt ($3.8)
Sixth placed Wolfsburg will be looking to push towards a Europa League place as they host not yet safe, Eintracht Frankfurt. Wolfsburg have won 2 of their last 3 games since returning, including an impressive 4-1 at Bayer Leverkusen last time out. Eintracht Frankfurt meanwhile reside in 14th, only 2 points above the relegation play-off places and they will be eager to start picking up points and pull away from trouble. Both teams tend to play on the front foot, and this should be an excellent game, which Wolfsburg look the most likely to prevail from.

Bayern Munich vs Fortuna Dusseldorf – Allianz Arena
Bayern Munich ($1.08)
Fortuna Dusseldorf ($41)
There looks to be no stopping Bayern Munich this season, who are once again 7 points clear in the title race. They welcome Fortuna Dusseldorf to the Allianz Arena, with the visitors currently occupying the relegation play-off place and eyeing up a late pull away from trouble. Following their 1-0 win at Borussia Dortmund in midweek, Bayern are in pole position to win the Bundesliga title once again this term. Fortuna meanwhile have been in great form since returning from the imposed break and are unbeaten in their last 3 games, including a good comeback win over Schalke. This however could be a big ask for them and Bayern Munich should win this one comfortably.

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Union Berlin – Borussia Park
Borussia Monchengladbach ($1.54)
Union Berlin ($7)
Top 4 chasing Borussia Monchengladbach will be eager to get back to winning ways as they welcome Union Berlin to Borussia Park. The hosts have only picked up 4 points from their 3 games since returning to action, but they remain 4th in the Bundesliga table and in the driving seat for a spot in next season’s Champions League. Union Berlin meanwhile, sit 13th, seemingly safe from relegation trouble but with only 1 point on the board since returning form the imposed break, they will be keen to finish the season well. Union Berlin are certainly no pushovers, but Borussia Monchengladbach should prevail in this one.

Paderborn vs Borussia Dortmund – Benteler Arena
Borussia Dortmund ($1.36)
Bottom club Paderborn host Borussia Dortmund as they look to mount an increasingly unlikely survival bid. The hosts sit 9 points adrift from absolute safety in the Bundesliga table, and with only 7 games to go, time is running out. They have however shown real resilience since returning to action and are unbeaten in their last 3 games. For Borussia Dortmund meanwhile, their title bid looks to be all but over, following their limp 1-0 defeat at home to Bayern Munich in midweek. They look to have 2nd place sewn up in the table and will need to keep picking up points, in the unlikely event Bayern slip up and they should pick up all three points here.

FC Koln vs RB Leipzig – Rhein Energie Stadion
FC Koln ($5.5)
RB Leipzig ($1.57)
Third place RB Leipzig will be desperate to get back to winning ways as their Bundesliga title attempt looks to be slipping away from them. They travel to FC Koln, who are 11th in the table, well clear of relegation trouble and winless in their last 3 games since returning to action. RB Leipzig are now 9 points behind Bayern Munich, following their disappointing 2-2 home draw with Hertha Berlin and securing their top 4 place looks to now be their priority with the end of the campaign looming. Leipzig haven’t been at their best since returning to action, but they should pick up a win on the road at FC Koln here.
