The Bundesliga action is back in full swing as we approach the midway point of the season, with nine pivotal matches set to unfold over the weekend. Here’s a concise look at what to expect on Matchday 18 of the 2023/24 Bundesliga season:

FSV Mainz vs Union Berlin preview

Friday, January 19 – 8:30pm CET – MEWA ARENA

In a crucial matchup, FSV Mainz and Union Berlin compete with a mere three points separating them from the relegation zone. Mainz has drawn three of their last four matches but needs to turn those draws into wins. Union Berlin, with just one defeat in their past five Bundesliga fixtures, seeks to revive their season. They hold an impressive record against Mainz, having not lost in their last five meetings. With the leading betting sites offering +225 this is the Bundesliga bet of the weekend.

Union Berlin win


SC Freiburg vs TSG Hoffenheim preview

Saturday, January 20 – 3:30pm CET – Europa-Park Stadion

TSG Hoffenheim, coming off a 3-0 loss to Bayern Munich, faces a stern test against the formidable SC Freiburg. Freiburg, unbeaten in their last six home matches, holds a strong home record. Additionally, they remain unbeaten against Hoffenheim in their last five encounters. With Hoffenheim struggling with just one win since October, Freiburg is the logical choice.

FC Koln vs Borussia Dortmund preview

Saturday, January 20 – 3:30pm CET – RheinEnergieStadion

Borussia Dortmund, following a convincing 3-0 victory over SV Darmstadt, aims to regain a top-four spot. They face FC Koln, the lowest-scoring team in the Bundesliga. Playing on the road, Dortmund should comfortably secure the win.

VfL Bochum vs VfB Stuttgart preview

Saturday, January 20 – 3:30pm CET – Vonovia Ruhrstadion

VfB Stuttgart, missing key players due to international commitments, seeks improvement after a 3-1 loss to Borussia Monchengladbach. Bochum, battling relegation, looks to capitalize on Stuttgart’s vulnerability. Playing at home, Bochum has a good chance to cause an upset as Stuttgart falls further from the top four.

VfL Bochum win


FC Heidenheim vs VfL Wolfsburg preview

Saturday, January 20 – 3:30pm CET – Voith-Arena

FC Heidenheim, the standout among promoted sides, faces VfL Wolfsburg, who has won just one of their last five matches. Heidenheim’s momentum and home advantage make them the favorable pick in this contest.

Eintracht Frankfurt, fresh off a critical 1-0 win over third-placed RB Leipzig, faces the league’s bottom-placed team, SV Darmstadt. Darmstadt’s defensive struggles have been evident this season, conceding more goals than any other side. Frankfurt, with top-four aspirations, must secure a victory in this encounter.

RB Leipzig vs Bayer Leverkusen preview

Saturday, January 20 – 6:30pm CET – Red Bull Arena

Bayer Leverkusen, sitting atop the Bundesliga, faces RB Leipzig, who saved the day with a 94th-minute winner last weekend. Expect another intense showdown after their previous five-goal thriller. Given the uncertainty of the winner, betting on over 2.5 goals appears to be the safer choice.
