Sports Betting. Bayern Munich vs Red Bull Leipzig [21.12.16] : the Bulls under the Star of the South

1. Bundesliga

Matchweek 16

21.12.2016

Bet: Both Teams to Score

The majority of sports betting experts were convinced that Bayern Munich would spend Christmas at the top of the Bundesliga table. However, Ancelotti’s team are not as infallible as they were under the direction of Pep Guardiola. After the first 15 games the Star of the South has 11 wins along with 3 draws and 1 defeat. So they managed to climb to the top only due to their rivals’ mistakes and a better goal difference. Besides, a lot of betting companies assumed Bayern would dominate their Champions League group, but Ancelotti’s side unexpectedly lost to Rostov and finished on the second position.

After a brilliant season in the 2. Bundesliga the betting experts predicted Red Bull Leipzig’s good start in the German top League. Nevertheless, none of them could imagine the dimensions of the rookie’s success. The fact that Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team suffered their first defeat only in the 14th game of the season speaks for itself. So, with 11 victories, 3 draws and 1 loss the Red Bulls sit on the second position. It should be mentioned that after a surprising loss to Ingolstadt (0-1), RB Leipzig pull themselves together and overcame Hertha (2-0) as it was predicted by sports betting markets.

Before choosing a bet, it’s worth keeping in mind that Bayern is still unbeaten at home this season. The Star of the South lost points only against Koeln (1-1) and Hoffenheim (1-1). It’s interesting that the Red Bulls stumbled over the same teams away from home. Apart from 5 away wins, they got 2 draws (with Koeln and Hoffenheim) and only one loss (to Ingolstadt). The sports betting experts remind that both teams are well-prepared for this game since they don’t have major selection concerns. So this first position-decider promises to be very interesting. Of course, it’s a huge challenge for the rookie, but at the same time they have nothing to lose while Bayern’s failure will be a real catastrophe.

The bookmakers consider the host to be a favourite of this game: Bayern Munich – 1,48, Draw – 4,70, Red Bull Leipzig – 7,00. If you believe in Ancelotti’s side here is a bet “Asian handicap Bayern -1” (1,71). Apart from that, you may try “Total Goals by Home Team over 2” (1,89). The bet “Bayern or Draw and Total Goals over 2,5” (1,84) is definitely worth your attention. It is also recommended to look closely at the option “Both Teams to Score” (1,80) as RB Leipzig scored in 7 of their 8 away games.
