Hoffenheim-Dortmund

Friday, December 20 – 14:30 EST – Rhein-Neckar-Arena

Hoffenheim are set to welcome Dortmund to the Rhein-Neckar-Arena on Friday. Hoffenheim aim to build on a 2-0 win over Union Berlin, but defeating Lucien Favre’s troops will not be an easy task. The home side did well to put an end to their four-game winless run in the Bundesliga. We are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in this one. Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, played out an excellent 3-3 draw against Leipzig in their last league match. Jadon Sancho did well to score his 9th goal of the season in the draw with the Red Bulls. He will be the man to keep an eye on in this one. Dortmund have a lot to play for as they look to stay in the race for a spot in the Champions League and possibly even challenge for the title.

OUR PICK: BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE + OVER 2.5 GOALS

Schalke-Freiburg

Saturday, December 21 – 9:30 EST – Veltins Arena

Schalke are set to host Freiburg at the Veltins Arena on Saturday. Schalke 04 will be looking to regain their spot in the top four with a win over Freiburg. In their latest Bundesliga matchup, they tied Wolfsburg 1-1. Schalke are unbeaten in their last 5 home matches with their last 2 matches being wins. Moroccan international, Amine Harit, is likely to pose a big threat to the opposition back-line. Freiburg, on the other hand have failed to win any of their last 5 matches on the road. They will have a tough task on their hands on Saturday. Schalke and Freiburg both find themselves fighting for a spot in the top 4. After an unfortunate 3-1 defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich, Freiburg will be looking to bounce back with a win.

OUR PICK: BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE

Dusseldorf-Union Berlin

Sunday, December 22 – 9:30 EST – Merkur Spiel-Arena

Dusseldorf will be looking to put an end to their three-game losing run in the Bundesliga when they welcome Union Berlin at theMerkur Spiel-Arena. Dusseldorf have been struggling at the back of late. They have conceded eleven goals in their last three league fixtures. After 16 matches played and only 12 points secured, Dusseldorf currently sit in the relegation zone. Union Berlin, on the other hand find themselves sitting 11th in the Bundesliga. They’ll be looking to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Hoffenheim at home in their last match. Union Berlin are not regarded as the best travellers. They recorded just one win in their last 5 away matches.

OUR PICK: DUSSELDORF OR DRAW DOUBLE CHANCE
