Bayern Munich v Freiburg (14:30 BST)


Jupp Heynckes makes an eagerly anticipated return to the Bayern Munich dugout this weekend following his appointment as coach of the Bavarian club until the end of the season. The 72-year-old has replaced sacked Carlo Ancelotti, and having won the treble of Bundesliga, DFB Pokal and UEFA Champions League in 2013 during his last spell at Bayern, fans will be eager to see Heynckes work his magic after Die Roten's stuttering start to the campaign.

Bayern come into this Matchday 8 encounter sitting five points adrift of Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund following back-to-back 2-2 draws at home to VfL Wolfsburg and away to Hertha Berlin. There'll be no slip ups this weekend, however, with Munich's stars looking to impress their new boss and reignite their bid for a sixth consecutive league title in the process. Their visitors have just one win to their name this season and appear ripe for the taking. A 3-2 victory at home to Hoffenheim last time out lifted Freiburg out of the relegation zone but only a goal separates the Brazilians of Breisgau and the bottom three. And we feel their climb up the table will be short lived with Bayern tipped to comfortably take all three points at the Allianz on Saturday.

Hoffenheim v Augsburg (14:30 BST)


Hoffenheim and Augsburg have made flying starts to the campaign but both clubs came up short on Matchday 7, falling to defeats away to Freiburg (3-2) and at home to Borussia Dortmund (2-1) respectively. The hosts remain third in the standings, though, level on points with Bayern Munich and trailing leaders BVB by five. Die Kraichgauer may have shipped three goals last time out but have proven to be solid at the back at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena in the Bundesliga this term, conceding a solitary goal (to Hertha Berlin) in four outings. And we're backing them to keep another clean sheet this weekend as they continue their pursuit of UEFA Champions League football.

Hertha Berlin v Schalke 04 (14:30 BST)


Hertha Berlin have an impressive home record against Schalke 04 to defend when the sides meet at the Olympiastadion on Saturday afternoon. Hertha have won two and drawn one of their last three meetings with the Royal Blues on home turf but have made a stuttering start to their league campaign with just two wins recorded thus far. A 2-2 draw at home to defending champions Bayern Munich last time out will have done morale no harm, however, as will a glance at Schalke's form. The visitors are just one point and one place above their hosts in the table in ninth and come into this clash winless in three (LLD) and having suffered three league defeats already this term. A home win makes plenty of appeal then as Berlin look to leapfrog their opponents in the standings.

Mainz v Hamburger SV (14:30 BST)


Hamburg visit Mainz 05 on Saturday bidding to end a run of five games without a goal. HSV took a point in their goalless stalemate at home to Werder Bremen last time out but lost four on the bounce prior to that and it looks as though the Bundesliga's only ever present club are going to subject their fans to another nerve-wrecking season, having danced far too close for comfort with relegation over the past few seasons. USA international Bobby Wood looks set to keep his place in Hamburg’s attack, despite failing to score since HSV’s 3-1 win at bottom-of-the-table Cologne on Matchday 2. The visitors will draw confidence from their point on Matchday 7 and with Mainz having a defence as leaky as their own - both clubs have conceded 11 goals so far this term - we're back Hamburg to end their scoring slump and for both teams to find the back of the net at the Opel Arena.

Hannover 96 v Eintracht Frankfurt (14:30 BST)


Hannover 96 have an unbeaten home record to protect this weekend at HDI-Arena but face an Eintracht Frankfurt side with impressive away form this season. The hosts suffered their first defeat of the campaign away to Gladbach (2-1) prior to the international break and will be eager to prove that result was an aberration as they look to maintain their top six status. Hannover come into the clash in 5th on 12 points, three places and two points above their visitors, who have won two of their last three on the road. 96 are haven't been beaten in their last 11 fixtures in all competitions on home soil and are boosted by the availability of Danny Blum following his return from injury. Although Frankfurt have kept clean sheets in three of their four away fixtures this season, we backing Hannover to edge this contest.

Borussia Dortmund v RB Leipzig (17:30 BST)


Borussia Dortmund's clash with RB Leipzig is the pick of this weekend's Bundesliga action as the hosts look to defend their 41-game unbeaten home record in the league. RB Leipzig will certainly present BVB with their toughest test of the campaign thus far but confidence will be high given the latter's imperious start to the new season. Dortmund are five points clear at the top of the table and their record of five clean sheets in their opening five Bundesliga fixtures was impressive to say the least. The Black and Yellows have only conceded twice in the German top flight so far this season and with 21 goals scored in seven outings, are averaging three goals a game. The hosts are on a four match winning streak and we're expecting them to edge this encounter. BVB won last season's home clash with Leipzig 1-0 and should come out on top again this time around.
