We’ll start our analysis with the most valuable games in the FA Cup 5th round.

 

Wolverhampton vs Chelsea

Chelsea continues their incredible run in Premier League and although their recent draw against Burnley, they are still the unquestionable favorites to win that competition. The FA Cup is also one of the team’s main goals since they are not involved in any European competition this season.

After an unexpected victory against Liverpool in Anfield Road, Wolverhampton is trying to feature another surprise but this time on their own turf. The Wolves made a big investment this year with the team spending €15m to bring Helder Costa from Benfica.

As it happened against Liverpool, we expect Wolves to approach this game with a very positive attitude. For that reason, the Both Teams to Score is the best option for this game at -105 with Bet365.

 

Bundesliga

As usual, we bring you the best plays in Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich returning to action after different results on their European games.

 Borussia Dortmund vs Wolfsburg

The best word to describe Borussia Dortmund’s defeat against Benfica in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 is strange. Despite that result, Dortmund is still in a good position to reach the quarterfinals since the 2nd leg takes place on their own turf.

After a brilliant start of season, Leipzig and Frankfurt are losing momentum due to the lack of depth on their squad. Therefore, this is the perfect opportunity for Dortmund to reduce the gap to their rivals.

Wolfsburg main goal for this season is to avoid relegation since they only have 22 points after 20 games. Despite their poor campaign this season, Valérien Ismaël’s team achieved a very important victory last weekend at home against Hoffenheim.

Dortmund can’t count with the “Yellow Wall” support for this game due to their behavior in previous games. However, we still expect a good performance from Borussia in a game where they want to redeem themselves after the disappointing defeat in Lisbon. That said, Dortmund -1.00 at -139 and -1.25 at +109 are the best lines for this game, both Pinnacle prices.

 Hertha Berlin vs Bayern Munich

With a seven-point advantage over the 2nd placed – Leipzig – Bayern Munich is very close from winning their 5th consecutive Bundesliga title. Besides their successful journey on the domestic league, Bayern is also one of the main favourites to win the Champions League after their 5-1 victory against Arsenal.

Despite their overwhelming performance against the Gunners, Bayern hasn’t been as impressive this season as they were in recent years. However, that result against Arsenal should be a big boost to the team’s confidence for the next games.

On the other hand, Hertha Berlin is struggling to maintain their good form with three defeats in the last four games. Moreover, Hertha lost the last 11 games against Bayern with their last victory in 2009.

Bayern’s odd to win this game is a good option for a parlay this weekend at -217 but we’ll take their -1.00 at -125 with our regular stake as the main play for this game.
