Bundesliga predictions for the weekend of April 20-21. Can Bayern Munich retain top spot in the Bundesliga or will Borussia Dortmund regain pole position in the race to win the German title? And who will boost their bids for Champions League football for next season? Read on for all of our free predictions and betting tips.

Bayern Munich v Werder Bremen (Saturday 14:30 BST)

Bayern Munich could not have found their form at a better time. They reignited the title race when Dortmund suffered a sudden dip in form earlier this year and an incredible run of 15 wins in their last 17 league games has propelled them to the summit. They hit top spot a couple of weeks ago when they crushed title rivals Borussia Dortmund 5-0 at the Allianz Arena, and they retained top billing last time out as they romped to a 4-1 win at Fortuna Dusseldorf. Dortmund are breathing down their necks though, with only one point separating the two clubs at this time, so Bayern know full well that the slightest slip-up between now and the end of the campaign could be fatal to their chances of retaining the Bundesliga title. So can they get the win they need on Saturday? Werder Bremen are providing the opposition and they head to Munich in very strong form having won four of their last five games to extend an unbeaten run in all competitions that now stands at 14 games. However, it is almost impossible to take on Bayern Munich at this time. They are winning matches and they are winning in emphatic fashion. They should claim the spoils here, but Bremen have not been struggling for goals this season and could at least give their supporters something to cheer.

Borussia Monchengladbach v RB Leipzig (Saturday 17:30 BST)

This match will have major implications on who finishes in the top four and seals a place in next season’s Champions League. RB Leipzig currently sit in third place, seven points clear of fifth-place visitors Borussia Monchengladbach, who are now one point off the top four, so the winner of this match could give their Champions League aspirations another major boost on Saturday. The question is, who will win it? Monchengladbach have been strong at home for much of the season, but their form over the past several weeks has been hit-and-miss and they have now lost three times at home since early February. That does not bode well for a meeting with an RB Leipzig side who have seemingly found top gear in recent weeks, winning four of their last five games in the Bundesliga to extend their impressive unbeaten run to 11 games. And as good as that run is, even more impressive is their form on the road during this time. Leipzig have won six straight away from home in the German top flight so with all of this in mind you have to fancy their chances of coming away with three points here. Monchengladbach should not be written off completely at home though, so backing the visitors using Draw No Bet is a good way to provide your bet with some insurance.

Freiburg v Borussia Dortmund (Sunday 14:30 BST)

Borussia Dortmund issued an ideal response to their 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Bayern Munich by beating Mainz a week ago, but they remain a point behind their fierce rivals and that means they simply have to follow up that victory here to keep the heat firmly on Niko Kovac’s men. And let’s be honest, nothing less than a title-winning season will be good enough for them here. Dortmund may not have come into the campaign with lofty expectations, but they were the cream of the crop in Germany’s top-flight for the first few months of the season and at one stage appeared to be shoo-ins for the championship. However, they wobbled mightily when Bayern suddenly put pressure on them and they simply have to learn to cope with that pressure between now and the end of the season because every game is important. The good news is that they have, aside from that hammering in Munich, been in good form over the past few weeks, winning four of their last five games to ensure Bayern did not pull away at the summit. They desperately need to make it five wins in six on Sunday afternoon and I believe they will. They have been struggling to keep the ball out of their own net though, so I expect Freiburg to score in what will ultimately be a losing effort.
