Why should you put your money on Bayern?
Bayern Munich could have taken last week off against SC Freiburg and still have ended up winning the Bundesliga title. Instead, they took the match right to the visitors and delivered a 3-1 win. Joshua Kimmich opened the scoring in the 15th minute, and then Robert Lewandowski made it 2-0 nine minutes later. Lucas Holer tallied for Freiburg in the 33rd minute, but Lewandowski completed his brace four minutes later, and that finished the scoring for the match.
Bayern possessed for 59 percent of the match and outshot the visitors, 17-5 (7-2 on target). Freiburg did not offer a particularly spirited defense, committing just six fouls, while Bayern committed a dozen. On the whole, it seemed as though Freiburg was content to let Bayern roll through en route to their Bundesliga title. If you like Bayern against Wolfsburg, then you think that Wolfsburg will show a similar level of disinterest in pushing the match.
Why should you bet on Wolfsburg?
Wolfsburg wasted no time dispatching Schalke 04 in their match on Saturday. Wout Weghorst got Wolfsburg on the board in the 16th minute, and the match went into halftime with that 1-0 score. The offense really took off after the intermission, as Weghorst completed his brace in the 56th minute. Three minutes later, Kevin Mbabu made it 3-0, and then Joao Victor added a goal in the 69th minute. Rabbi Matondo helped Schalke 04 avoid the shutout with a goal in the 70th minute, but by that point matters were out of hand.
Possession was virtually even in the match, and both teams launched 11 shots. Wolfsburg had more shots on goal (5-3). The teams combined for 28 fouls and seven yellow cards (four for Schalke), showing the physical nature of the match. The fact that Wolfsburg was able to score at will in the second half despite the physical nature of the match shows that they can deal with the distractions that come from frenetic play. Bayern is not a frenetic team, though. They play a calm, calculated style that exploits the mistakes on the other side and understands the superiority of their system in generating offense without opening up vulnerabilities on the back line.
Wolfsburg vs Bayern Final Score Prediction
Bayern certainly has the talent and the system to prevail over Wolfsburg. Will they have the attention span after clinching a Bundesliga title? Or will Wolfsburg have more to play for? There’s not a lot of value in taking a Bayern victory here, and Wolfsburg should come out with more energy. I see Wolfsburg taking advantage of some complacency on the Bayern side and scoring an early goal. However, I see Bayern waking up at that point and coming back to equalize…and then shutting down the Wolfsburg offense after that. I predict a final score of Bayern 1, Wolfsburg 1.
