Cologne v Eintracht Frankfurt (17:30 BST)

It has been a truly miserable start to the season for Cologne, who have lost their first four games with the losing margin getting bigger each time. They have now been outscored 12-1 by their opposition and they go into this midweek clash with Eintracht Frankfurt on the back of a 5-0 battering at the hands of Borussia Dortmund. Cologne desperately need to stop the rot here, but the visitors have been performing well on their travels this season, taking four points from their first two away games, so Eintracht Frankfurt are fancied to collect three more in Cologne on Wednesday.

Freiburg v Hannover 96 (19:30 BST)

Hannover 96 were tipped to struggle and be relegated in their first season back in the top flight, but during the first few weeks of the season they have made their doubters look rather foolish. Andre Breitenreiter’s team have taken 10 points from their first four games and kept three clean sheets to sit joint top with Borussia Dortmund, and although their good run has to come to an end at some point I do not see it being at winless Freiburg. However, the home side have dawn both of their home games so far so another stalemate here looks a real possibility.

Hamburg v Borussia Dortmund (19:30 BST)

Borussia Dortmund walloped Cologne 5-0 at the weekend to maintain an unbeaten record that has seen them take 10 points from their first four games to sit top of the table. Dortmund have out-scored their opposition 10-0 during this fine run and it spells trouble for a Hamburg side who have been unable to maintain their good form of the first couple of weeks of the season. The home side opening up with back-to-back wins, but they have now lost each of their last two games without scoring a single goal so you have to like in-form Dortmund’s chances of claiming three points and another clean sheet here.

Hertha Berlin v Bayer Levekusen (19:30 BST)

Hertha Berlin may have lost just one of their first four games, but back-to-back draws in recent weeks have made it three games without a win for Pal Dardai’s side. They will want to end that disappointing sequence on Wednesday night when they come up against a Bayer Leverkusen outfit that registered their first win of the season at the weekend, thrashing Freiburg 4-0. It would be easy to think that Leverkusen will be the team to go with here, but even though Berlin have stuttered early on this is a team that is hard to beat on their home turf. I am backing Berlin to bounce back.

Mainz 05 v Hoffenheim (19:30 BST)

Hoffenheim are aiming for a top-four finish once again this season and they have made a solid start to the season by taking eight points from their first four games, with three of those points coming from a shock home win over champions Bayern Munich. They now take on a Mainz 05 side that were thrashed 4-0 by Bayern at the weekend and have now lost three of their first four games, and even though Hoffenheim’s sole away game so far ended in a draw I am confident about their chances in this one. Back an away win.
