Bundesliga Tips Matchday 26: Hot bets for the restart from 16.05.
Who has weathered the mandatory break well? Football fans in Germany have been waiting for this moment for over two months. The weekend is finally here. The 1st and 2nd Bundesliga resume their game operations and continue the interrupted 2019/2020 season.
Despite many discussions, some of which are completely understandable, the DFL decided to start again early after the political consent. The sports weather for the first Bundesliga tips for match day 26 is correspondingly hot!
The first matchday after the break begins in the Bundesliga on May 16. Bet that the critical voices will not fall silent with immediate effect? From Saturday to Monday, nine games will take place. These include the district derby between Dortmund and Schalke, which could sometimes serve as a stress or endurance test for whether the fan groups actually adhere to the guidelines of the elaborate concept and do not aim to gather people near the stadium.
Below we deal with the nine matches of the 26th matchday in the Bundesliga and present tips and odds for the next matchday.
As a treat for all lovers of German football, it should also be noted that the first two match days after the break will be broadcast live on free TV. So you can not only bet on the Bundesliga conference on Saturday, but also watch it on your home TV.

Dortmund vs Schalke Free Betting Tips
Under normal circumstances, the Revierderby in Germany is shaped more by the two rival fan camps than any other duel. On Saturday, however, the Ruhrpott giants will meet in the Signal Iduna Park without spectators. This does not change the favorite role of the black and yellow Borussia.
Puzzle for BVB?
Based on the assumption that both teams took advantage of the short phase of team training equally, we also expect the Favre team to win at home. However, due to the absence of the “yellow wall”, this could turn out to be scarcer than many currently suspect. For this reason, you should at least keep an eye on the tip of a maximum of three goals at the start of the Bundesliga on May 16.
Betting Tips: Under 2.5 Goals
Augsburg vs Wolfsburg Free Betting Tips
Heiko Herrlich would certainly have imagined taking office differently. The former Leverkusen coach was installed as successor for Martin Schmidt at FC Augsburg immediately before the interruption and should stop the free fall as quickly as possible with only one point from the last five games.
On his debut as FCA coach, the Fuggerstädter get to grips with VfL Wolfsburg, who remained unbeaten six times in a row in February and March and thus set course for the European Cup places again. The results from late winter should no longer have a really big impact, which is why it is so difficult to give suitable tips on the first Bundesliga matchday after the break.
Heiko Herrlich makes his debut as an FCA coach
Because of the delayed trainer effect in the southern Swabia and the great desire of many players to show the new trainer their real skills, we decided for a home win for the Augsburg team, who collected and followed two thirds of the points in the home WWK arena as before vengeance after the embarrassing 1: 8-clap on match day 34 of the past season.
Betting Tips: Victory Augsburg
Dusseldorf vs Paderborn Free Betting Tips
Actually, the game between Düsseldorf and Paderborn should have opened the 26th matchday of the Bundesliga about two months ago. However, all bets were declared void in advance because the match had to be canceled after the first officially occurring infection in the East Westphalia region. Next Saturday, May 16, the crisis summit will be rescheduled in the Merkur game arena.
Despite the long break, during which the usual preparation was only possible up to a certain point, there is already a lot at stake for both clubs. The SCP has to score three points in the North Rhine-Westphalian state capital in order not to raise the white flag early in the fight for relegation.
Paderborn clings to the last straw
The situation at Fortuna is similarly tense, but lost only one of the last six games before the interruption and is therefore also considered a favorite for the direct duel in the table cellar.
Betting Tips: Düsseldorf
RB Leipzig vs Freiburg Free Betting Tips
Many experts are currently speculating that the more qualitatively more highly rated teams will have an advantage when the game starts again. This thesis is justified among other things with the fact that in the “smaller” clubs the home game bonus would be canceled by the unapproved fans.
If you believe this view, there should be no two opinions about who will prevail between RB Leipzig and Freiburg on match day 26. In our eyes, however, the starting position is not quite as clear as the odds of the best bookmakers in the Bundesliga indicate before the restart.
Is Freiburg well prepared for the point again?
Christian Streich has not only proven once in the past that he gets his team fit after a long period of preparation. The sports club achieved convincing victories both at the start of the first half of the season and at the beginning of the second half of the season.
Will the Breisgauer manage the surprise of the 26th matchday in the Bundesliga? A potential bet that both teams will score serves as an alternative with a statistically higher probability of occurrence.
Betting Tips: Both teams to score
Hoffenheim vs Hertha Free Betting Tips
Hertha from Berlin has already secured the title of “Bundesliga Chaos Club” this season. Primarily, they owe this inglorious award to Jürgen Klinsmann and Salomon Kalou, who with their dubious actions have done the capital club a disservice and may have extended the deep sleep phase of the “sleeping giant”.
Before the “old lady” flirts with the European Cup in the coming years, it is important to fix the relegation. Although the lead over the relegation place is only six points, there is great hope of being saved. This confidence is almost entirely due to Bruno Labbadia, who took over from Alexander Nouri during the forced break and is now making his debut on Saturday.
Does Labbadia’s Hertha debut go wrong?
It will be interesting to see whether Hertha can implement Labbadia’s ideas at TSG Hoffenheim. In any case, we are skeptical and in the 20th direct duel in the Bundesliga on matchday 26 we tend to place bets on the hosts. The Kraichgauer have won four of the last five home games against the Berliners. The last home bankruptcy dates from 2013.
Betting Tips: Hoffenheim
Frankfurt vs Gladbach Free Betting Tips
In the first evening game after the Bundesliga break, the odds imply a match at eye level. Eintracht Frankfurt welcomes Borussia Mönchengladbach. The fact that the bookies see the foals as favorites does not meet with approval everywhere.
After all, one of the best home teams in the Bundesliga (6-3-3) meets a club that still dreams of a big coup in the form of the championship, but was only able to win two of the past seven matches in the top German division. Nevertheless, it should be mentioned that hardly any other first division team benefits as much from supporting their own supporters as the SBU.
Both teams already have experience playing ghost games
For the reasons mentioned above, it quickly becomes clear that at the end of the Bundesliga Saturday, a tip on the outcome of the game is associated with great risk. A potential advantage in experience with ghost games is also not discernible, since both Eintracht and Borussia had to compete before the break before empty ranks.
We therefore expect a tough duel with a maximum of two goals. Optionally, a value tip on a tie may be an option. If you want to go one step further, we recommend that you bet on a 1-1 draw in the ghost game.
Betting Tips: Under 2.5
Koln vs Mainz Free Betting Tips
For one person in particular, the first match day after the Bundesliga break is a reunion in two ways. Achim Beierlorzer started the season as a Cologne coach, but only moved to Mainz a few days after his release from the cathedral town. There, the former Regensburg coach should now bag the relegation.
At “Effzeh”, however, you can even look towards the Europa League under the direction of Markus Gisdol. Before the interruption, the Rhinelander was in excellent shape. At home, five of the youngest six games were victorious. It is quite possible that this impressive run can be continued in the Bundesliga on Sunday, May 17th. In our eyes, betting on the hosts is a logical conclusion.
Do the people of Mainz have a federal disadvantage?
As an additional argument, the actual willingness of the people of Mainz not to resume the season until May 22nd. Because team training was only allowed a little later in Rhineland-Palatinate, the relegation-threatened Rheinhessen fear a competitive disadvantage compared to the competitors in the German upper house. In Koln it should be difficult for the zero five anyway.
Betting Tips: Victory Koln
Union Berlin vs Bayern Free Betting Tips
It should be the highlight of the entire season. The Bundesliga newcomer Union Berlin was full of anticipation for the “game of the year” against a sold-out backdrop at the Alte Försterei against Bayern Munich, but then the virus put a spanner in the works. With a two month delay, the unequal duel now increases, albeit under completely opposite conditions.
The home advantage was stolen from the iron. Without the enthusiastic fans, the task against the record champions will be even more complicated. As with other matches in the Bundesliga on match day 26, the odds for the home team are higher than at the time when spectators were admitted.
Union without fans against the record champions without a chance?
In fact, we have little hope that the brave struggling Berliners can beat the big favorites and frontrunners. Instead, we expect the Flick-Elf to be safely away from home, with a difference of at least two goals.
Betting Tips: Victory Bayern (-1.5)
Werder Bremen vs Leverkusen Free Betting Tips
These days you can’t get rid of the feeling that SV Werder Bremen had been happier with a break in the season. Although sports director Baumann and coach Kohfeldt vehemently denied media reports going in this direction, non-continuation would at least have meant that the footballers from the Weser would have been represented first-class in the coming season.
Now that things are going on sportily, the green-whites face a very difficult challenge. Werder has to catch up eight points on the saving bank, but at least has one catch-up game against Eintracht Frankfurt in the back. Nevertheless, every encounter is now a kind of endgame for the former German champions.
Is Werder Bremen underestimated due to the table situation?
At the end of the 26th Bundesliga match day, tips for the cellar child could turn out to be extremely risky. The opponents of Bremen are on Monday evening, May 18, namely Bayer Leverkusen. The Rhinelander are still aiming for the new qualification for the Champions League and should start with more confidence in the rest of the round than the long-sighted Hanseatic, who also have a few days less team training in their legs.
However, since we think the odds of a Bayer success are too low, we tend to place bets on some goals. For at least three goals in the 90 minutes, respectable odds of 1.61. As a value tip with a lower stake, the betting base would even take a double chance 1 / X under the microscope.
Betting Tips: Over 2.5 goals
