Since the Bundesliga is currently the only big league that’s playing their games, I would like to give you a watchlist for the upcoming weekend. I’ve noticed many English Premier League fans struggle to find their way around in watching the Bundesliga. Being a Dutchman I’m used to watch other leagues to see some good football matches. In this article I share the two must-see Bundesliga games for the upcoming weekend.
Bundesliga games to watch
It was tough to pick just two matches, but I managed to select these two matches below.
Hertha Berlin versus Union Berlin
The Berlin Derby is going to be a very interesting between these two neighbours. There isn’t much in between these team this season. Hertha Berlin is currently on 11th place only one point above Union Berlin. Hertha won their first match of the Bundesliga convincingly away against Hoffenheim. Union Berlin lost 2-0 at home against die Rekordmeister Bayern Munich. Munich struggled to break down Union Berlin and needed a penalty to score the first goal. This shows both teams are in a good shape for the Berlin Derby. This match will open the Bundesliga weekend on Friday at 8:30 pm local time.
Borussia Mönchengladbach versus Bayer Leverkusen
This match is a direct battle for a Champions League tickets. In order to qualify for the Champions League teams need to finish in the top 4 of the Bundesliga. Bayer Leverkusen is currently just outside of the top 4 on the fifth place. Borussia Mönchengladbach is currently in third place after beating Eintracht Frankfurt with 1-3 away in gameweek 26. Bayer Leverkusen played the last match of week 26 and destroyed Werder Bremen away from home. Kai Havertz is the man in form. If the Mönchengladbach defenders manage to stop him, there is a good chance they can win the match. A victory for Leverkusen will mean they go past Mönchengladbach by 1 point. The match between Borussia Mönchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen is going to be a very eventful march according to this website.This match will be played on Saturday 3:30 pm local German time.
If you haven’t got of German football after watching these two matches, just roll on and see if Bayern Munich can keep a gap of the top of the league when they face Eintracht Frankfurt.
