Bundesliga Top 4 Finish Odds price Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayer Leverkusen above EVENS

Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayer Leverkusen fighting for Bundesliga Champions League places

Most Bundesliga seasons revolve around the dominance from Bayern Munich, but the current five-point lead at the top of the table from Borussia Dortmund has been the first of many pleasant surprises. The Bavarians’ performance has been so underwhelming over the current campaign that they’ve even yo-yoed with Borussia Monchengladbach, who now sit a mere three points behind them.

Fourth place is currently held by RB Leipzig through their thirty-eight point tally, but both Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayer Leverkusen are giving reason for at least one of the two teams above them to look over their shoulder.

Although they find themselves in the top six – meaning they hold a strong chance of sealing a place in next year’s Europa League – Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayer Leverkusen are both on thirty-three points, leaving them five points adrift of the even more desirable Champions League places in the Bundesliga table.

Neither Borussia Monchengladbach or RB Leipzig should be disregarded as being unworthy of a finish in the top four of the Bundesliga this season, but with both Eintracht Frankfurt and Bayer Leverkusen priced above EVENS to seal a place in the top four, there’s enough reason to believe that any of these options are capable.

Bundesliga Top 4 Finish Odds have been below 10/1 for Eintracht since November

Any fans of German football will be aware of how strong Eintracht Frankfurt are, with their fortunes only starting through the 2016 appointment of Niko Kovac, who saved the side from relegation before sealing a runners-up place in the DFB-Pokal as well as a far safer eleventh place finish in the Bundesliga.

Skip ahead to 2018 and Kovac has sealed an even better eighth place finish in the Bundesliga and an incredible against-the-odds DFB-Pokal win, leading to the overachieving manager taking the helm at Bayern Munich. Although the mastermind behind their success is no longer at the club, Young Boys manager Adi Hutter has continued the work left by Kovac, now reaching fifth with a strong chance of sealing a European place.

Along with making it to the Europa League Round of 32, Eintracht Frankfurt possess an incredible attacking threat from Serbian striker Luka Jovic, Croatian forward Ante Rebic, former Swansea City midfielder Jonathan De Guzman, and French striker Sebastien Haller, taking a combined thirty-four goals and nineteen assists in the league alone.

A finish inside the top six would assure another attempt in the Europa League after the current season, but for those tempted by them to reach the top four, Bet365 offer a price of 11/2 for them to overtake either of Borussia Monchengladbach or RB Leipzig before their final fixture away to Bayern Munich in May.

Niko Kovac Bayern Munich Manager

Eintracht Frankfurt have done especially well considering how manager Niko Kovac took over at Bayern Munich in the summer.

Bayer Leverkusen down to 7/2 from 14/1 since the end of January

Often appearing in the top four of the Bundesliga, former Borussia Dortmund boss Peter Bosz is showing the best side to Bayer Leverkusen, currently at sixth but likely to move higher after some incredible performances. They’ve had to change managers frequently over past seasons but there’s promise in Peter Bosz’s first eight games, as he’s come away with six wins.

It was Heiko Herrlich who started the season with Bayer Leverkusen but he was eventually relieved of his duties due to what the club referred to as a ‘poor overall performance’ and leading the side under ‘bad tactics’. Peter Bosz has already lost two games in charge but the fact that he’s won the other six says a lot, especially in Leverkusen’s incredible 3-1 win over Bayern Munich.

The dismissal of Heiko Herrlich moved Bayer Leverkusen’s Bundesliga Top 4 Odds from 14/1 down to 7/1, showing how big an impact Herrlich’s ‘bad tactics’ were having on their hopes of a top four finish. Bundesliga odds regarding the top four have continued to drop since that point, now reaching 7/2 on Bet365, where you’ll currently find the best price.

Kevin Volland Bayer Leverkusen

Kevin Volland is Bayer Leverkusen’s most dangerous attacking asset this season, scoring eight and assisting four.

There’s absolutely no chance that Borussia Dortmund or Bayern Munich will finish outside of the top four this season, with both teams priced at 1/5000 to finish within the Bundesliga top four. Borussia Monchengladbach are only given odds as high as 1/5, then followed by RB Leipzig at 4/11, with either of these sides capable of dropping out of the top four before the end of the campaign.
