Bayern Munich v Dortmund: Home side’s stellar winning run to continue

| 27.02.2013

At 8/11 for victory, Bayern Munich look superb value to overcome their nearest Bundesliga challengers Borussia Dortmund at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern have somewhat incredibly won their past 13 games in succession, whilst they are unbeaten in 25 outings in all competitions.

In their 7/2 visitors they face the reigning German champions, in the hope of extending a 17-point lead at the top of this season’s Bundesliga.

And they should be backed to do so, in the process racking up a 10th league home success of the season.

An outstanding feature of Bayern’s campaign thus far has been defensive solidity, with the hosts having conceded only eight times in 23 league games.

Whilst only Bayern have scored more goals than Dortmund this term, a third clean sheet in four home games looks plausible for Jupp Heynckes’ charges, at 17/10.

Meanwhile, 11/5 is the price attributed to the hosts winning without conceding, and that undoubtedly deserves attention too.

Those who do feel the travelling side can register have multiple betting opportunities in this game as well though, with a Bayern win in which both sides score priced at 23/10.

Both have found the net in the past three meetings of the pair, and each team to simply score in the match is a 4/6 chance, whilst it is 23/20 against that outcome.

A glance at last season’s meetings between this pair sees Bayern unbeaten, but Dortmund did manage to take a point away from the Allianz Arena.

11/4 is available regarding another draw, but punters investing in those odds should do so with caution in the aftermath of Bayern’s transformation since last term.

As previously stated, Bayern are in possession of the Bundesliga’s best attacking record as well as having the stingiest defence in Germany this season.

With goals throughout the team, an abundance of first scorer options look to have chances, of which Mario Gomez and Mario Mandzukic are the most obvious at 7/2.

Toni Kroos may prove a better value pick at 8/1 to break the deadlock though, in search of his 10th goal of the season from an advanced midfield role.
