BAYERN MUNICH enter the fray on Sunday when they travel to Union Berlin.
Their hosts made history when they became the first club from East Berlin to reach the Bundesliga with promotion last season and they’ve performed above expectations.
Union have beaten Borussia Dortmund and city rivals at home but with no fans that advantage has been taken away from them.
Bayern are a machine and are just 1-5 to win so it’s not easy finding value.
Normally I’d take Robert Lewandowski to score first at 2-1 with Unibet but how do we know if he’ll be his sharpest after the lay-off?
Union are as big as 14-1 with Ladbrokes and over the next few weeks there are bound to be some big shocks – could this be one? Probably not.
On an acca best bet could be over 2.5 match goals at 1-2 with McBookie assuming both get into the swing of things as quickly as possible.
The other Sunday game sees Cologne take on Mainz and there should be plenty of goals.
There have been 36 goals in their 12 home matches and 13 of their games have produced four or more strikes.
The last “proper” game I watched was Rangers v Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League and Ibrox fans will be keen to see how Bayer perform on their return to action on Monday.
There is still plans to play the European second leg behind closed doors and Bayer will be boosted by coming out of the lockdown much earlier than Scottish clubs.
Werder Bremen spent big in the summer but languish in 17th and are eight points adrift of safety with the fewest goals scored (27) and most conceded (55).
They have won only once at home and were thrashed 5-0 by Mainz in front of their own fans.
Young gun Kai Havertz arrived at Ibrox with a glowing reputation and promptly scored the opener. He is 27-5 at Betway to repeat the feat tomorrow.
Bremen are 4-9 for the drop with only new boys Paderborn (1-16) above them in the relegation outright market.
There will be Sunday top tips on a separate post.
