Bundesliga predictions for Saturday, May 18. Will Bayern Munich be crowned German champions once again on the final day of the season, or will the league leaders suffer a shock defeat that hands Borussia Dortmund the chance to snatch the title from under their noses? Read on for all of our free predictions and betting tips.

Bayern Munich v Eintracht Frankfurt

Bayern Munich missed out on the opportunity to clinch the Bundesliga title with a game to spare, drawing 0-0 at RB Leipzig last weekend, but that point means they do have a two-point lead over Borussia Dortmund heading into the final day of the season and it does mean that the destination of the trophy is firmly in their hands. So will Bayern complete a sensational turnaround in the second half of the campaign to lift the silverware once again, or can Eintracht Frankfurt pull off an upset to possibly deny their hosts another crown? Bayern have slipped up a couple of times in recent weeks, drawing two of their last three games, but both of those disappointing results have come away from home. In fact, Bayern have not dropped points at the Allianz Arena since Christmas Eve and they have not been beaten on their own patch in the league since early October. That tells you all you really need to know about this one. Bayern should wrap up the Bundesliga title with an 11th straight home win in the Bundesliga, but I do fancy Frankfurt’s chances of grabbing a goal. Munich do not concede many at home, but Frankfurt do not draw many blanks and in young striker Luka Jovic they have an in-form hitman who should receive plenty of transfer interest this summer. He could add to his stock by scoring against the league leaders, but ultimately it will be Bayern celebrating at full-time.

Borussia Monchengladbach v Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund must be kicking themselves at how they have simply thrown away the title this season. A dip in form during the second half of the season has done all the damage and in the rare times that Bayern have slipped up in the past few months, Dortmund have failed to take advantage. That means they go into the final day two points behind the table-toppers and it means they will need a favour from Eintracht Frankfurt if they are to end their title drought in dramatic fashion. I do not expect them to get the favour they need, but I do believe they will at least end the season on a positive note. Monchengladbach have endured a sudden slump in home form over the past few months and they have now gone seven games without a victory at BORUSSIA-PARK – that is not the sort of form you want to be in when preparing to face Dortmund, even if they have stumbled. In fact, it really does not bode well when you consider the fact that Dortmund have dominated this fixture in recent years, winning each of the last seven encounters. So while Dortmund have been guilty of throwing the title away since the start of 2019, I do believe you can back them here with a degree of confidence. The away team will win, but it will not be enough to hand them the title.

Hertha Berlin v Bayer Leverkusen

Bayer Leverkusen go into the final day of the season still in with a shot at a top-four finish and a place in next season’s Champions League, but for that to happen they need to better Borussia Monchengladbach’s result. The good news for them, if I am correct, is that Monchengladbach will not pick up any points against Borussia Dortmund, but can Leverkusen do their half of the bargain to snatch a top-four spot? Hertha Berlin has been a difficult place to visit in recent seasons, but the Olympiastadion has not been the fortress it once was this season and Berlin’s overall form during the final few months of the season has been absolutely appalling despite the fact they have won their last two games. Leverkusen, meanwhile, have now gone five games without defeat, collecting 13 points from a possible 15, and they have been racking up points on their travels over the past few months. Therefore I am backing them to get the three points here, but given their recent inability to keep clean sheets Berlin should give their fans something to cheer by finding the back of Leverkusen’s net.
