Injuries & Suspensions
One often overlooked aspect of Bundesliga football betting is who is actually not playing. While punters look for match winners in a side to influence their betting, if a team like Bayern Munich or Borussia Dortmund have a big list of absent players not actually available for selection, then they may be more vulnerable.

So it is always worth stopping and taking a look at the current Bundesliga injuries and suspensions to see how a side may be shaping up for their next fixture. A side may struggle without their lone, main striker who has accumulated too many disciplinary points for the season. Defensive frailties can arise if a centre half partnership gets weakened because of injury.

Links to current injuries and suspensions lists


All that you need to know about Bundesliga bans and injuries can be found here. The clubs are listed alphabetically and you can see who is going to be sitting out through suspension, or who is not fully fit. This will aid your betting decisions and enable you to get to better, smarter conclusions. Keep this valuable Bundesliga betting information to hand and it is updated on a regular basis.

The Bundesliga is arguably one of the toughest leagues in Europe and not only is there the title race which takes a lot of focus, but also the races for places in the Champions League, the Europa League and of course, the often fascinating battle for survival at the foot of the table. When a side is not at full strength at any point of the season, it can set off bad runs of form, while the reverse is that the longer a squad stays healthy and suspension free, success can come flooding in. Make sure that you are informed of who is on the injury list and who is not allowed to play. That is where keeping up to date with Bundesliga injuries and bans can play a major part in your football betting decisions.
