Bayern Munich are sitting pretty at the top of the Bundesliga with nine games left and they will aim to make a seamless transition back on the football pitch after the top two German divisions were given the green light to go ahead and resume their fixtures.

Team news | League Table | Odds

The German champions have won the Bundesliga title for the past seven years and they currently have a four point cushion over second-placed Borussia Dortmund, with Hans-Dieter Flick having steadied the ship in recent months after a wobble under Niko Kovac.

Bayern resume the 2019/20 football season with a fairly easy fixture, with the squad making the journey to the Stadion An der Alten Försterei and they’re strong favourites to keep the chasing pack at arm’s length by recording three valuable points.

A word of caution for any punter looking to back Bayern Munich at short odds; they have failed to win four of their twelve away matches this season and we’re talking about the first match after a lockdown which was an unprecedented event in anyone’s lives.

The players might be a touch on the rusty side when it comes to their overall fitness and technical level, with Union Berlin boasting a 50% win rate at home, although they won’t exactly be able to make home advantage count considering the game will be played behind closed doors.

All eyes will be on Robert Lewandowski who has 25 Bundesliga goals to his name this season and is therefore averaging one per game. It’s an outstanding stat for the Polish striker who will be looking to observe social distancing rules by finding space from the opposition defenders at all times.

Bayern were in excellent form before the pandemic outbreak and that included a 6-0 thrashing of Hoffenheim, with the team not tasting defeat since December and we’re happy to back them for this match.

However, we’ll bank on them getting their noses in front by half-time and snatch a bigger price on the HT FT as a result, with Bayern looking to get out of the traps fast against a Union side who will be missing their home supporters.
