Bundesliga Predictions | Round 34

In this new weekly feature, hosts of the Gegenpressing podcast Stefan Bienkowski and Manu Veth face off with their predictions for the forthcoming Bundesliga matchday fixtures. It’s three points for a correct score and one point for a correct result. Who will come out on top at the end of the season?

Stefan’s game of the week: Stuttgart vs Koln

Most of the games in the Bundesliga this weekend won’t mean a whole much of anything, but when it comes to Stuttgart v Koln we undoubtedly have a match that both teams will be desperate to win. If the home side can claim all three points, they may be able to claw themselves out of the relegation play-off spot. If Koln win, they could end up in the Europa League next season. In the final weekend of the season, I know which game I’ll be watching.

Manu’s game of the week: Bayer Leverkusen vs Freiburg

My game of the week is going to be Leverkusen vs Freiburg. Not just because I will be at this game. This is a big fixture for Freiburg, Streich’s men will have one last chance to secure a top four finish and reach the Champions League for the first time in the club’s history. It will be a tough task, not only do Freiburg have to win their game against a strong Leverkusen side but also have to hope that Bielefeld do the impossible against Leipzig. Watch out for Moussa “I finally learned how to pass” Diaby. The Frenchman has been sensational this season and could be off this summer for an exuberant €50 million transfer fee.

Stefan’s predictions: 

Borussia Dortmund 2-1 Hertha Berlin 

Wolfsburg 1-2 Bayern Munich 

Bayer Leverkusen 3-2 Freiburg 

Union Berlin 1-0 Bochum 

Gladbach 3-2 Hoffenheim 

Stuttgart 1-1 Koln (G)

Mainz 2-0 Frankfurt 

Augsburg 2-1 Greuther Furth 

Bielefeld 0-3 RB Leipzig

Manu’s predictions: 

Dortmund 3-1 Hertha

Wolfsburg 0-5 Bayern 

Leverkusen 2-1 Freiburg 

Union 3-0 Bochum 

Gladbach 2-2 Hoffenheim

Stuttgart 3-0 Köln 

Mainz 2-2 Frankfurt 

Augsburg 2-0 Fürth

Bielefeld 1-3 Leipzig
