Daniel Pinder’s Saturday Pick 4 German Bundesliga Preview

A great selection of games in this weekend’s all-Bundesliga Pick 4. Daniel Pinder has previewed his Syndicate for us, and you can get involved in his ticket here.

Hoffenheim v Bayer Leverkusen (Sat 14.30)

Saturday will see two of the Bundesliga’s most thought of coaches go head-to-head. Julian Nagelsmann’s Hoffenheim welcome Heiko Herrlich’s Bayer Leverkusen to Sinsheim in a fixture that is likely to involve goals.

The visitors possess the likes of Leon Bailey, Julian Brandt and Kevin Volland, creating one of the league’s most fearful attacking trio while the hosts aren’t too bad themselves. Hoffenheim are unbeaten in 25 of their last 26 games at home while Leverkusen are unbeaten in six on the road.

Just one point separates the two sides involved in this fixture. Mark Uth and Volland are the highest scoring Germans this season while the leaky defences of both teams could make this an interesting affair.

Hamburg v FC Koln (Sat 17.30)

In dire need of a win is Markus Gisdol’s Hamburg. Sitting in the relegation zone, they welcome bottom club Cologne to the Volksparkstadion on Saturday in what is a true six-pointer.

The visitors come into this fixture without an away win in 16 Bundesliga fixtures but what they do have is a sense of unity. Earning just their second league win of the season last weekend, winter arrival Simon Terodde scored a stoppage time winner against fierce rivals Gladbach and while they look promising going forward, Hamburg do not.

Both teams need a win and so this could go one of two ways. Featuring two of the Bundesliga’s lowest scorers, don’t expect this to be a high-scoring fixture while the opening 15 minutes is expected to be a tight affair.

Bayern Munich v Werder Bremen (Sun 14.30)

Kicking off proceedings on Sunday sees the league leaders host 16th placed Werder Bremen. It’s hard to look past Jupp Heynckes’ side in any fixture considering they’re once again coasting the Bundesliga. Sitting 13 points clear of their nearest challenger, it’s hard to look past a Bayern win.

On the road, Bremen are poor given they’ve failed to find a win in 10 of their last 11 away Bundesliga fixtures meanwhile, Bayern have managed a clean sheet in five of their last seven league games at the Allianz Arena.

With just 14 league goals, Bremen are second to only Cologne in terms of goals scored in the Bundesliga. It’s hard to see anything but another three points and a clean sheet for Bayern Munich come Sunday evening.

Schalke v Hannover (Sun 17.00)

Domenico Tedesco will be eager to put last weekend’s defeat at RB Leipzig past them but Sunday’s game against Hannover will be no easy feat. Promoted from the second division, Andre Breitenreiter’s Hannover are sitting pretty in mid-table following wins against Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim.

However, Hannover haven’t won at the Veltins Arena since 2010 while many are predicting Schalke will once again be too strong for their opponents. Breitenreiter’s side have lost their last four games in the road, conceding 12 while Schalke have lost just once at home this season.

Fluid going forward, Hannover’s defence may have a hard time dealing with Guido Burgstaller, Amine Harit & Co. while the Royal Blues remain rather strong defensively.
