Bayern Munich returns to the Allianz Arena after virtually clinching their 8th consecutive Bundesliga title against Borussia Dortmund in their most recent match. The hosts welcome visiting Fortuna Dusseldorf on May 30, 2020, in Round 29 of the German Bundesliga.
Bayern’s 1-0 away win over Dortmund gave them a seven-point cushion over their rivals. Mathematically, there are still enough games for Borussia Dortmund to catch-up. But Bayern must lose at least three games for that to happen, which is unlikely given their current form.
Fortuna Dusseldorf is trying to ensure a return trip to the top flight. However, they are currently occupying the relegation spot and need to continue their upward trend so that they can stay for another season in the Bundesliga 1.
Seven-time champions Bayern Munich moved closer to clinching their 8th consecutive Bundesliga title after defeating closest rival Borussia Dortmund last Tuesday 1-0 behind Joshua Kimmich’s late first-half goal.

Bayern only had 49% of possession time against Dortmund but they completed 87% of their passes and had a total of five shots on goal and three corner kicks. The defending champions have scored eight goals in their last three matches while conceding just three scores during that period.
With the win, Bayern has put some distance between themselves and their closest pursuers. The defending champions now have a total of 64 points on 20 wins, four draws, and only four losses this season. Their +53 goal difference is +13 better than second-ranked Borussia Dortmund.

Bayern Munich has been impressive at home as of late. They have won six out of their seven matches at their pitch and have defeated Fortuna Dusseldorf in each of their last eight head to head meetings.
Fortuna Dusseldorf heads to this match with improved confidence as they have have forced two draws and picked up one win since the reset of the season. However, Dusseldorf has struggled away from home with only two victories in 14 road matches. Despite that, they have picked up three wins in their last four matches.
There is no doubt that Bayern Munich is the best team in the league. Against Fortuna Dusseldorf, the difference in talent level is obvious. Because of the delay caused by the pandemic, the remaining schedule is being squeezed, forcing teams to play in multiple games during the week. Fatigue is a factor for most teams but Bayern Munich has such a deep lineup that it’s not an issue with them.
I think there is no doubt about who will win this match. Bayern Munich is a mammoth -1235 favorite in this match so while we are picking them to win this match, I’m not recommending to bet on such heavy favorites. I think it’s better to bet on goals here because Bayern has scored at least two goals in six out of their last seven matches. I like many goals to be scored here.
Prediction: (-450) for Over 2.5 goals is still too pricey but it’s better than -1235.
Bayern Munich has been dominant since a slow start. They have lost only four times in 28 matches and have defeated Fortuna Dusseldorf in each of their last eight meetings. There is no question which team wins this at full time and given that the defending champions have won both at the half and in full time in five out of their last seven matches played, I think Bayern goes wire to wire here too.
Prediction: Bayern Munich to win at the half and full-time -300 at Bet365
