There is perhaps no bigger day in any soccer season than the final day. This is true even when the title has long since been decided, as there are usually plenty of other storylines to follow throughout the course of the final 90 minutes of football. While there will still be some excitement in the final day of the season in the Bundesliga this coming Saturday, some of that will be muted with no fans in the stadiums. It’s always fun to see fans react to scores happening in other games, and while that experience will be lost this season, there is still plenty to get excited about. Let’s have a look at how each of these teams arrive to this affair so you can place your bets against their Bundesliga odds.
Bayern Vs Wolfsburg Game Preview
The only race that really matters now is for the European spots, and we could see some changes there based on how the results go on Saturday. Wolfsburg are trying to hold on to their Europa League place for next season, but they could potentially fall back to the EL Qualification place if they get nothing out of this game. It’s a tough way to end the season for Wolfsburg, who are slight underdogs here. The goal total for this one has been set at 3 ½.
Why bet on Wolfsburg
As we mentioned at the top of this piece, this is a critical game for Wolfsburg. While they can relax a little knowing that they are guaranteed a European spot for next season, the result of this one will dictate just how tough that journey might be. As it stands at the moment, Wolfsburg are in 6th, which would place them in the group stage of the Europa League next season. They have Hoffenheim breathing right down their neck in 7th, and slipping down that one extra spot would mean needing to play in the qualification round of the EL. They are coming off a huge 4-1 win on the road against Schalke in their last outing, and will be home for this one, where they are just 4-7-5 on the season, scoring 19 and surrendering 19 in those games.
Why bet on Bayern Munich
The biggest question that Bayern Munich have ahead of this game is in regard to the type of team that they might choose to put out. Bayern still have the German Cup Final on the horizon, not to mention the completion of the Champions League, so the last thing they need is one of their key players getting hurt in a meaningless game. At full strength, it would be hard to imagine Bayern Munich losing here, so it’s important that you check out the line-ups before you make a wager on this one. Bayern won the earlier meeting with Wolfsburg 2-0, and also won 3-1 in their last visit here. On the road this season, the champions are 12-2-2, scoring 43 and giving up 17.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
This is a tough one to call without knowing what the lineups are going to look like. Wolfsburg have home field advantage and a lot to play for in this one, so I am going to keep it close and go with the tie, as I think Bayern will field a weakened team.
