Bayern Munich v Wolfsburg (Friday 19:30 BST)

Bayern Munch misfired in their first outing after the international break, losing at Hoffenheim, but normal service has been resumed over the past few weeks with Carlo Ancelotti’s men winning their last three competitive fixtures and out-scoring the opposition 10-0. They will have an opportunity to replace Borussia Dortmund at the top of the table on Friday night – even if it is for less than 24 hours – and I thoroughly expect them to take it. Visitors Wolfsburg have managed to win only one of their first five games and they have already been soundly beaten by Dortmund this season, losing 3-0 at home to the league leaders. I expect we will see something similar here with Munich running out winners and registering a clean sheet in the process.

Hoffenheim v Schalke (Saturday 14:30 BST)

Despite exiting the Champions League at the qualifying stage, Hoffenheim have to be happy with how their season has begun. Julian Nagelsmann’s side are unbeaten through their first five games, collecting 11 points from a possible 15, and they have sprung one of the biggest surprises we will see all season by beating Bayern Munich 2-0 earlier this month. They now take on a Schalke shat have made a decent start by taking nine points from their first five games, but the visitors go into this match on the back of a 3-0 midweek defeat to Bayern Munich and they have not been great travellers over the past 12 months. Hoffenheim, meanwhile, have lost just one home game in the league in the past 12 months, so I have to back the home side for three points here.

RB Leipzig v Eintracht Frankfurt (Saturday 14:30 BST)

RB Leipzig came into the 2017/18 campaign looking to stage another Bundesliga title challenge, but if they are to do that they really need to stop dropping points at this early stage. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men have won only two of their first three games and they go into Saturday’s match with Eintracht Frankfurt on the back of a 1-0 loss at Augsburg in midweek, but can they bounce back against a team that is unbeaten on their travels so far this season, picking up an impressive seven points from a possible nine? I think they will.

Borussia Dortmund v Borussia Monchengladbach (Saturday 17:30 BST)

Borussia Dortmund are sitting pretty at the top of the Bundesliga table having collected 13 points from their first five games, and making their start even more impressive is the fact they have out-scored the opposition 13-0 during this excellent run of form. They do have Bayern Munich breathing down their necks however, and that means the pressure is on them to keep this good sequence going for as long as possible because the next dropped point(s) could knock them off the summit. Next up for them is a home game against a Borussia Monchengladbach side that have made a mixed start to their league campaign, and I am backing Dortmund to keep their run going by claiming three more points here.

Hannover v Cologne (Sunday 14:30 BST)

Hannover have so far defied pre-season predictions that they will be battling against the drop in 2017/18, but just how long can the top-flight newcomers keep their good run going? Andre Breitenreiter’s men extended their unbeaten run to five games with a midweek draw at Freiburg and they are now returning to their HDI-Arena home where they have won both of their league games so far without conceding. Providing the opposition are a rock-bottom Cologne side that have made a truly miserable start to the season by losing each of their first five games, scoring just one goal while conceding 13. Therefore you have to like Hannover’s chances of making it six games without loss by picking up three points on Sunday afternoon.

Bayer Leverkusen v Hamburg (Sunday 17:00 BST)

Bayer Leverkusen finally register their first league win of the season a week ago, but they were unable to build up any momentum in midweek as they lost at Hertha Berlin, and even at this early stage of the season they desperately need to start stringing some wins together. Their sixth outing of the campaign sees them take on Hamburg, with the visitors arriving in miserable form having lost each of their last three games without scoring a single goal. Hamburg are there for the taking right now and I am going to back Leverkusen to bounce back from that midweek defeat with a win here.
