Matchday 13 is the final round of fixtures before everyone takes off for a well deserved winter break. The Bundesliga resumes January 2nd 2021 & we still have 21 Matchdays to get through.
It was another slow start for Hansi Flick’s side. Maximilian Philipp put VFL Wolfsburg ahead on 5 minutes. Bayern Munich looked to Robert Lewandowski & he delivered as he always does. The Pole’s brace brought an end to Die Wölfe’s unbeaten start to the season & earned Die Roten 3 points to keep pace with league leaders Bayer Leverkusen.
Those two goals were Lewandowski’s 250th & 251st in the Bundesliga. The leagues twitter account @Bundesliga_EN put together this great video together of his best moments across the years.
Lucien Favre’s relationship with the squad deteriorated rapidly in the final weeks. Normally when a manager is sacked, the players will thank them in social media posts & wish them the best. We saw very little acknowledgement from the team & it looks like they moved on quickly.
Borussia Dortmund have handed the reigns to Edin Terzić. He spoke to reporters earlier in the week & highlighted his connection with the club. “I am a product of Borussia Dortmund. I come from the region and have been a fan for ages.”
The fans miss the days of Jurgen Klopp & are desperate for a manager they can form an emotional connection with. Terzić served as an assistant to Slaven Bilić at Besiktas & West Ham before joining Favre at Dortmund in 2018. He got off to a winning start with a 2-1 away win against Werder Bremen & has 6 months to convince everyone, he’s the man who can lead this team to success.
BUNDESLIGA MATCHDAY 13 BETTING LINES
ODDS & ENDS
- Werder Bremen at +210 to beat Mainz 05 is great value.
- I like Wolfsburg +130 to bounce back from their defeat to Bayern Munich with a win over VFB Stuttgart.
- I think Bayern’s experience will get them the win against Bayer Leverkusen. Back them at -132 to go into the winter break top of the league.
- It’s very rare you see odds this good for Dortmund & Bayern. A Money Line Parlay comes out at +220.
