Bundesliga predictions for the weekend of March 15-17. Will Bayern Munich maintain top spot with an important home win, and can Borussia Monchengladbach and Eintracht Frankfurt boost their respective bids for a top-four finish and a place in next season’s Champions League? Read on for all of our free predictions and betting tips.

Borussia Monchengladbach v Freiburg (Friday 19:30 GMT)


Borussia Monchengladbach were knocked out of the title race by a miserable run of form between early February and early March that saw the collect just one point from a possible 12, and following the heavy home defeats at the hands of Wolfsburg and Bayern Munich they were facing up to the real possibility of sliding out of the top four if they did not stop the rot at Mainz last time out. They managed to do that courtesy of a 1-0 win, but there are now just a handful of points separating them from the chasing pack so they desperately need to make that slender the start of an improved run of form. Next up for them is the visit of Freiburg on Friday night and this has to be considered a ‘must-win’ match for Monchengladbach. However, they have found winning at home difficult. Prior to the start of February they boasted the only flawless home record in the German top flight having won all nine of their games, while conceding only three goals, but that has now long gone thanks to a run of three straight home defeats that has seen them lose by a combined score of 11-1. They will be desperate to get back on track at home here and Freiburg’s recent form – one loss in six – suggests it will not be easy. However, the visitors have toiled on the road for much of the season with only two wins coming in 12 games so this is a great opportunity for Monchengladbach to collect three points and a morale-boosting clean sheet. 


Eintracht Frankfurt v Nuremberg (Sunday 14:30 GMT)


Eintracht Frankfurt have put themselves firmly in the mix for a top-four finish thanks to an eight-match unbeaten run in the league, and they have now gone 11 games without loss in all competitions, winning four of the last five. They have taken points off the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Monchengladbach during this run too, so it is not like they have been benefiting massively from a favourable run of fixtures. Sunday’s outing could be considered favourable – the visitors are a rock-bottom Nuremberg side who have managed just two wins in 25 attempts this season and have been pathetic on their travels, collecting just two points from a possible 36 while being out-scored 35-8 by the opposition. Simply put, they are there for the taking. Frankfurt have rattled in 13 goals across their last five games so when you factor that purple patch alongside Nuremberg’s woeful away form, everything points to this being a comfortable win for Frankfurt on Sunday afternoon. I expect them to win by a couple of goals, erasing a one-goal handicap if you back them -1.


Bayern Munich v Mainz (Sunday 17:00 GMT)


Bayern Munich’s quest to become European champions once again is over thanks to a surprise home defeat to Liverpool in midweek, but Niko Kovac’s side must lift themselves this weekend because they have been given a massive lifeline in the Bundesliga title race. Bayern have capitalised on a dramatic dip in form from Borussia Dortmund to hit the summit thanks to a red-hot run of form since the start of December them has seen them win 12 of their last 13 games in the German top flight. Only goal difference is keeping them above Dortmund though, and that means they could soon be knocked off the summit if they drop points. Bayern will have their sights set on collecting all three of them when they host Mainz on Sunday evening and I fully expect they will get them. While Bayern have been steamrollering domestic opposition in recent months – they have out-scored their last two opponents 11-1 – Mainz have faltered by losing five of their last six games. Thankfully for them they still have a sizeable cushion between themselves and the relegation zone, but unless they turn things around they are in danger of being sucked into the fight to stay up. There is no way that will happen here. Like I wrote before, Bayern have demolished their last two Bundesliga opponents and those sides were no slouches – Kovac’s side hammered fourth-place Borussia Monchengladbach 5-1 in front of their own fans and then returned home to hammer six past Wolfsburg in a 6-0 success. Everything points to a Bayern Munich victory here and it will be a comfortable one.
