Winning Der Klassiker gave Bayern Munich a huge boast, as it was lived as the last obstacle in Bundesliga, but actually, RB Leipzig are still just 2 points behind and this means that against Werder it’s still no time to relax for the Bavarians. This could bring them more ahead as Leipzig have a very difficult clash against Eintracht Frankfurt. A Gladbach in crisis can be halted in Augsburg before their upcoming Champions League fixture in Manchester. Here’s a complete preview, updated soccer odds, and our top betting picks.
Werder Bremen vs. Bayern Munich
Saturday, March 13, 2021 – 09:30 AM EST at Weserstadion
Bayern Munich gave against Borussia Dortmund the proof everybody wanted to check if they still cared about Bundesliga. But don't be mislead, it will happen again that they will start relaxing in a minor game and then just get back in the match on time. RB Leipzig is lying there behind them and probably will be out of the Champions League soon, so free to prepare their league games with all the necessary focusing.
So Bayern will particularly treasure this week where they could have train regularly without any game interrupting them, which is a real value at this point of the season. And if it wasn't enough, Werder instead are the ones that had to get out on the pitch on Wednesday to recover their game against Arminia Bielefeld, having a squad that definitely is no more accustomed to deal with stuffed scheduling.
All in all, Werder's season has been a constant stop and go, unable to pile two consecutive wins since October. Bayern on the other side, not only are delivering as expected, but most of all are back to their standard, which means ending up by winning each game with a large gap in scoring, as in all last 3 games, no matter it included the Champions League clash with Lazio and domestic head-to-head with Dortmund.
RB Leipzig vs. Eintracht Frankfurt
Sunday, March 14, 2021 - 10:30 AM EDT at Red Bull Arena
It's obvious that Bundesliga has turned into the primary target for RB Leipzig when unexpectedly they closed to -2 to Bayern while losing 0-2 to Liverpool. But sealing their tie with the Reds will anyway affect their form when facing Eintracht. Which anyway has let their head go round, as after shocking Bayern then has wasted such an effort by losing to Werder and drawing to Stuttgart.
No surprise, the typical mentality of a team not accustomed to winning back-to-back, and was softened by the great achievement of beating the just world champions. So Eintracht in Leipzig could still be struggling to recover their momentum, but anyway helped by Leipzig's European efforts to honor their name in Liverpool. Considering that Leipzig are conceding little, but if not in good shape then can find it hard to get easily close to the goal, then the option of the draw at half time is much more likely than expected, and definitely highly rewarded by odds.
And actually Leipzig drew at half time in 4 of the last 6 league games, even in spite of having an accessible scheduling.
Augsburg vs. Monchengladbach
Friday, March 12, 2021 - 02:30 PM EST at WWK Arena
Five defeats in a row for Gladbach, and overall 7 games without winning, and all of this in a weekend where they should prepare for the Manchester City trip. While Augsburg anyway gained solidity, being more reliable at home than away, nothing extraordinary but at least giving hard time to anybody, compared to only 2 months ago where they couldn't go beyond losing 5 games out of 7 in January and possibly will be very motivated after giving away the match against Hertha at the last minute.
