Bayern Munich face a crucial test in the title race when the club takes on Wolfsburg at the Allianz Arena this weekend. The defending champions have been able to move level on points with Borussia Dortmund after several weeks of trailing Lucian Favre and his team. Meanwhile, Wolfsburg have been able to stay in touch with the Europa League places with Bayer Leverkusen only ahead due to a better ‘goals scored’ record. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Bayern Munich were able to thrash Mönchengladbach 5-1 at the Borussia-Park to make it four consecutive league victories. Surprisingly, Bayern are not the form team in the division with Leverkusen having scored more goals during the same period and having picked up the same points.
Wolfsburg have been one of the form teams in the division over the last few weeks but they were held to a 1-1 draw by Werder Bremen at home. Wolfsburg, though, are unbeaten in five matches.
The reverse fixture produced a 3-1 victory for Bayern Munich at the Volkswagen Arena even though the defending champions were reduced to 10 men. The last meeting between the two clubs at the Allianz Arena produced a 2-2 draw. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Bayern.

Bayern Munich have been able to gain a major boost in the title race by coming back level on terms with Dortmund. It is an incredible comeback considering that the title race seemed done and dusted by the end of 2018. Bayern manager Niko Kovac, though, will be keen to maintain the recent momentum but games against the likes of Wolfsburg are a major threat. Bruno Labbadia has made his team very resilient and hard to beat. After several consecutive defeat at the Allianz Arena, Wolfsburg picked up a draw only in the recent visit. The club’s away record has been good but not outstanding, while Bayern have picked up five consecutive home wins. Our preview would go with a win for Bayern.

Correct Score odds

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There has been just one example of a low scoring game between these two teams at the Allianz Arena. Wolfsburg have been able to score at least a goal in the last nine Bundesliga away matches. Since both teams have a great chance of scoring multiple goals, our total goals prediction would opt for more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Robert Lewandowski ended his three-game drought with a brace against Borussia Mönchengladbach and he was one of the best players on the pitch for Niko Kovac’s men. Lewandowski particularly enjoys playing against Wolfsburg after managing more goals (19) against this team than against any other opponent. Interestingly, he has managed to these goals in just 20 games. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Robert Lewandowski.
