Raphael Honigstein's Bundesliga Betting: Chicharito To Lead Leverkusen To Victory


Borussia Dortmund - VfB Stuttgart

Thomas Tuchel has said he assumes both Marco Reus and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be fit when Stuttgart visit on Sunday. Dortmund aren't in the best form, having lost back-to-back games for the first time under Tuchel with defeat to Krasnodar in the Europa League on Thursday.

Stuttgart are the visitors on Sunday though and they sacked coach Alexander Zorniger on Tuesday. Jürgen Kramny has become interim coach but having conceded eight goals in their last two games, it's difficult not to see Dortmund scoring a few, with over 3.5 at 2.55.

 

FC Augsburg - VfL Wolfsburg

Wolfsburg weren't exactly convincing in their important Champions League win at CSKA Moscow during the week. Augsburg meanwhile were perhaps unfortunate to be defeated in the Europa League by Athletic.

When it comes to the Bundesliga though, the home side on Sunday have been flaky but with Wolfsburg equally inconsistent on the road, it's best to back a draw here at 3.45.

 

Bayer Leverkusen - Schalke 04

An early mistake from goalkeeper Bernd Leno ended up costing Leverkusen a win in Borisov on Tuesday. Schalke on the other hand were once again underwhelming in their 1-0 win over Asteras Tripolis. 

This will be the final game that their midfielder Johannes Geis will miss through suspension. Whilst there are greater problems with Schalke, his presence has been missed and that's likely to be the case in Leverkusen on Sunday. With Chicharito in clinical form for Roger Schmidt's side, the hosts should win this at 1.68.
