While they may not have many admirers among the neutrals, Al Hain-Cole is backing the surprise package’s exciting attacking approach to reap dividends against Carlo Ancelotti’s …
An unlikely top of the table clash takes place in the Bundesliga on Wednesday, as traditional heavyweights Bayern Munich welcome surprise upstarts RB Lepizig to Allianz Arena – a game bet365 customers can watch online for free.
Ahead of their opponents only on goal difference in first position, Carlo Ancelotti’s team are 2/5 (1.40) favourites to move clear at the top with a sixth consecutive victory in all competitions.
After bouncing back from a first defeat of the season to see off Hertha Berlin 2-0 at the weekend, the newly-promoted guests can be backed at 6/1 (7.00) to finish a dream year on top of the league by coming out on top here.
The visitors have not played out a single draw in any of their last 10 matches but are priced at 15/4 (4.75) to come away with a point in this one.
While Die Roten are widely unpopular in Germany for their long-standing dominance of the domestic game, Wednesday’s opposition are disliked for almost the opposite reason.
Having benefitted from generous corporate investment and some creative measures to circumvent Bundesliga rules on naming rights and fan ownership, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team have drawn widespread antagonism from opposition clubs and supporters.
Nevertheless, even the most committed detractors must have some grudging admiration for the exciting football on display from the division’s youngest squad, whose record of 31 goals after 15 matches is just four fewer than a star-studded Bayern team.
Considering they have already overcome established forces such as Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen thanks to a high octane style of play, they will fancy their chances of at least finding the net for the 15th Bundesliga game out of 16 in this clash.
Indeed, the fact that Bayern have conceded in 12 of their last 16 fixtures in all competitions suggests 4/5 (1.80) odds offer solid value on both teams finding the net in a fittingly exciting final Bundesliga clash of 2016.
Both teams to score at 4/5 (1.80) for a 2pt stake
