The German football continues behind closed doors this weekend. There’s a full set of 9 games in the Bundesliga, with every match live on the BT Sport channels.
Play kicks off this evening, with the Berlin derby at 7.30pm.
With the Premier League not due back until mid-June at the very earliest, we’re using the stats from our Across the Leagues website to offer up our Predictions for the Bundesliga this weekend – see below.
Meanwhile, one rung down the German ladder…
Low corners in the lower league…
The second division is also in action in Germany. Dresden have got players testing positive for coronavirus, so their fixtures are postponed for a couple of weeks. The other teams in Bundesliga II got underway last weekend though, and this stat could be worth looking out for…
- There were Under 10.5 Total Corners in 7 of the 8 games played in Bundesliga II last weekend
The only game that went ‘Over’ that betting line was St Pauli at home – they have the highest average in the division, so no surprise there. But even still, there were only 11 corners in St Pauli’s 1-0 win over Nuremberg, so only one over the Over 10.5 Corners line.
- In comparison, in the previous fixtures, ‘pre-lockdown’ in March, 6 out of 9 Bundesliga II games went Under 10.5 Corners
Are last week’s low corner totals down to the empty stadiums, no fans and a lack of pace in the games? And/ or tired legs with players perhaps not yet at full match fitness in the second division? We’re not going to pretend to know. But it could be a trend worth keeping an eye on.
For this weekend’s games in Bundesliga II, bookies including Bet365, Skybet, BetVictor, Paddy Power & Betfair Sportsbook have Total Corners markets up. If last week’s stats are anything to go by, then the Under 11 Corners or Under 10.5 Corners options are the ones to look out for….
- For example, leaving out St Pauli’s game this weekend, a 7-fold acca on the other Bundesliga II games to all go Under 10.5 Corners comes out as a 45/1 shot with BetVictor. Multiples and combos involving those games might also be worth considering. We’ll keep an eye on trends like that in the weeks to come
The Bundesliga II games kick off from 5.30pm today.
