Parlay Kane Goal with Bayern Munich Win

Whilst Bayer Leverkusen’s match-up against Borussia Dortmund is certainly the blockbuster match of the weekend, only one game in the Bundesliga’s weekend fixtures features two Champions League teams. It is also the most lopsided, at least on paper.

Whilst Bayern Munich find themselves in second place, two points behind Bayer Leverkusen, five above Stuttgart and eight above Dortmund, Union Berlin currently occupy the relegation zone, sitting one point above Cologne, two behind Mainz and three away from automatic safety. German soccer betting fanatics will be well aware of the threat Union has possessed to Bayern in recent years – after picking up consecutive 1-1 draws, Bayern thrashed Union 5-2 and 4-0 before drawing 1-1 and beating them 3-0.

This Union side, however, is not like the one that enjoyed a steady ascent under Urs Fischer. Rather, it is one in crisis mode. Having sacked the Swiss manager and ending a five-year spell with him in charge, Union appointed Croatian manager Nenad Bjelica, whose first two tests will be a must-win match against Braga and a trip to Bayern. Adding a Bayern win to your Bundesliga betting predictions is a surefire way to get a profit, and another way to get more bang for your buck is by including Harry Kane in your soccer picks and parlays.

Whilst last season saw his stellar form at Tottenham overshadowed by the record-breaking heroics of Erling Haaland, Kane is reminding everyone why he has a legitimate claim to be recognized as the best center forward in Europe. The Englishman has racked up 22 goals and seven assists in 17 appearances, and he continued that trend at the weekend.

Kane opened the scoring within 20 minutes as Bayern edged Cologne 1-0. He has scored 18 goals in the league already, two more than last season’s joint top scorers in the Bundesliga, and he is firing on all cylinders at the moment for Thomas Tuchel’s Bayern Munich. Including a Kane goal in your Bundesliga bets is like taking candy from a baby.

Whilst Union Berlin’s form has been looking up, snapping a 12-match losing streak with a 1-1 draw to Napoli before losing 4-0 to Bayer Leverkusen and drawing 1-1 to Augsburg, I’m not sure they’ll be able to keep out a world-class striker in Kane, as well as the likes of Leroy Sane and Kingsley Coman. Union have kept just one clean sheet this season – a 4-0 win at lower-tier Astoria Walldorf on Aug. 13 – and I don’t expect that drought to end anytime soon.

Bayern to Hold Union to a Clean Sheet

Whilst Bayern boast the best attack in Europe’s top five leagues with 43 goals scored in 12 matches, their defensive record isn’t shabby either. With nine goals conceded, only Nice (4), Inter (7) and Juventus (8) have let in fewer goals this season. They have already kept clean sheets against Cologne, Borussia Dortmund, Darmstadt, Freiburg, Bochum and Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga, and with Manuel Neuer finally healthy again, they boast the security of an all-time great goalkeeper in between the sticks.

Bayern will be well aware that they are playing catch-up, but if Dortmund can hold Leverkusen to a point at the weekend, Bayern would go top of the table with a win. The Bavarians remain unbeaten in the league and certainly have the tools to pick up yet another win, but whilst the Las Vegas sportsbooks aren’t providing incredible value when it comes to a Bayern victory, a Bayern win and clean sheet is valued at -110 in the betting lines.

We’ll take those odds. Union have failed to score on 10 occasions since the start of September, and they’ll have their hands full against a Bayern defense featuring the likes of Kim Min-jae and Dayot Upamecano.
