The club became the champion 29 times, holding the title for 8 consecutive years. Bayern Munich took second place in the tournament table 10 times and won bronze 5 times. Borussia Dortmund followed with a significant lead with 8 wins in the championship. Another nine-time champion — Nuremberg — lost the tournament last year and dropped to the second division.

The Bundesliga is famous for its fine-tuned financial structure. The clubs have no debts and enjoy a balanced budget. As a result, football fans are proud of it, too. Football fans from all countries support the matches of the Bundesliga. The German championship gathers up to 43 thousand viewers per game. This interest does not leave us indifferent. We carefully monitor the situation in the championship, the specifics of each team’s game, and statistics to provide a quality forecast for fans from Nigeria.
How to predict Bundesliga matches?
We need to interpret these data accurately for predicting the development of football events:
- The results of the last season
- The position of teams in the standings at the moment
- Information about coaches, players, and referees
- The importance of the match
Our experts combine all these data in their forecasts. Analysts of our site make forecasts for the overall results (futures) and the consequences of individual games of the German championship. We can identify trends that can be seen in 2019 / 2020 with the past season’s fixtures. Also, we make some recommendations on how to predict the matches of the Bundesliga.
Number and quality of goals
Following the Pan-European dynamics, the German Bundesliga increases the number of goals year by year. In the season 2018 / 2019, teams scored 3.18 goals per game on average, and almost 55% of the games ended with a score above 2.5. The market “above/below 2.5” will be successful, odds ranging from ⅘ to 2/1 this season. The top teams Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, and RB Leipzig have already scored 73, 68, and 62 goals, respectively. The success of BTTS betting is also increasing. 59% of games last season, and this season ended with the goals of both teams. Bookmakers are aware of trends, so they set good odds on the market. An average of 22 — 24% of games end in a draw; the home team wins 45 — 43% of games, and the guests win 31 — 35%. We recommend betting on the home team’s victory and avoid betting on a draw if the teams differ in level in the standings. Sides of the same level may equalize in the number of goals, but a zero score is unlikely. Live betting enthusiasts will find the goal time statistics useful. German players often scored the ball in the opponents’ goal in the last quarter. 24% of all goals took place after 75 minutes of play. For those who want to bet on the exact score, statistics will show:
- 173 last season games ended with a score of 1:1
- 141 games — with a score of 2:1
- 128 — with a score of 1:0.
- This season scores 1:1 and 2:1 are still popular.
Team composition and top players
The presence of star players strengthens a team and improves the performance at the matches. The average number of goals in the Bundesliga brings it to one of the top positions in world football. When making a forecast, our experts always take strong players into account. The higher the rating of a forward player, the more likely the team will score. Players of the level of Lewandowski, Marko Reus, Timo Werner, and others passed the mark above 10 goals last season. You should not consider the stars on the team only. These things are important:
- The work of the coach
- The renewal of the squad during the transfer window
- The coherence of the game at the tense moments
- The emotional state of players
Our analysts don’t ignore the club strategy. If both teams prefer defense, a bet on a high score will be unproductive. When the teams fight for survival closer to the end of the season, the number of goals and dangerous moments increase.
