Bundesliga Predictions | Round 6

In this weekly feature, hosts of the Gegenpressing podcast Stefan Bienkowski and Manu Veth face off with their predictions for the forthcoming Bundesliga matchday fixtures. It’s three points for a correct score and one point for a correct result. Who will come out on top at the end of the season?

Manu’s Game of the Week: RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich

My match of the week is the Topspiel between RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich. It is far too early to call this a title decider but without a doubt Leipzig, together with Leverkusen, will challenge Bayern for the title this year. With that in mind, Leipzig could set the tone here on how the rest of the season will go and put some real pressure on Bayern. In fact, you could just imagine what will happen at the Säbener Straße if Bayern lose this. On balance, with both teams having strong attacks, it will ultimately be the defensive lines that will determine the outcome.

Manu’s Predictions:

  • Hoffenheim 1-2 Borussia Dortmund
  • Wolfsburg 2-1 Eintracht Frankfurt
  • Mainz 1-3 Bayer Leverkusen
  • Köln 1-3 Stuttgart
  • Bochum 0-2 Borussia Mönchengladbach
  • Heidenheim 1-2 Union Berlin
  • RB Leipzig 2-2 Bayern Munich
  • Darmstadt 1-2 Werder Bremen
  • Freiburg 2-0 Augsburg

Stefan’s Game of the Week: Hoffenheim vs Borussia Dortmund

My game of the week has to be Dortmund’s trip to Hoffenheim. Edin Terzic’s side continue to look far from their best – despite last week’s win over Wolfsburg – and will face another tricky task in their Sinsheim hosts on Friday night. Pellegrino Matarazzo’s team look extremely dangerous in attack but are also just as careless as their black and yellow foes in defence. I’m hoping for a high-scoring game that should see both sides settle for one point each.

Stefan’s Predictions:

  • Hoffenheim 2-2 Borussia Dortmund
  • Wolfsburg 1-0 Eintracht Frankfurt
  • Mainz 0-3 Bayer Leverkusen
  • Köln 1-3 Stuttgart
  • Bochum 2-2 Borussia Mönchengladbach
  • Heidenheim 0-2 Union Berlin
  • RB Leipzig 3-2 Bayern Munich
  • Darmstadt 1-2 Werder Bremen
  • Freiburg 1-0 Augsburg

Scores after MD5: Manu – 35, Stefan – 45
