Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Bayern Munich will continue the second half of the Bundesliga with a visit to the Volkspark stadium to play against Hamburg SV in the 18th round of the Bundesliga. So far this season was relatively easy for Bayern Munich having 46 points out of the first 17 games. Die Bayern is leader on the table and holds 8 points more than runner up Borussia Dortmund. After 2 difficult seasons in the Bundesliga Hamburg SV finally managed to be a consistent performing team in the Bundesliga; HSV is placed 10th and if they keep up like this staying in the Bundesliga won't be a real problem. Bayern manager Guardiola announced this to be his last season for Bayern Munich and therefor will be eager to win the Bundesliga. We predict Bayern Munich to beat HSV 0-3. Previous confrontations show that Bayern doesn't get into a lot of trouble with Hamburg SV. The winter break was the perfect moment for the Bayern Munich super stars to recover from their long season.
