Dusseldorf Will Borussia follow on from Schalke or will the promoted team get their first point? How is BVB doing in Freiburg? And do Bayern also clearly win against Wolfsburg? The Bundesliga tips from RP Online.
SC Freiburg got off to a convincing start to the season and won 4-0 at FC Augsburg. Borussia Dortmund also got three points in a 1-0 draw against Bayer Leverkusen, but they were a bit lucky. With Anthony Modeste there is now a new striker who could make his debut in Bresgau. BVB had a hard time in Freiburg recently, the last three games there could not be won.
Our tip: The strong Freiburgers defy the Dortmunders at least one point.
After the bitter bankruptcy in Dortmund with the red card for keeper Lukas Hradecky, Bayer 04 Leverkusen now meet FC Augsburg, who got off to a bad start against Freiburg.
Our tip: Bayer 04 get a clear home win against Augsburg.
At Hertha BSC, after the cup and derby bankruptcy, there are signs of a crisis again, and success against Eintracht Frankfurt would be very important. The SGE comes with a 1:6 against Bayern and the Supercup against Real Madrid in the back in the capital.
Our tip: Hertha BSC and Frankfurt share the points.
RB Leipzig should have been dissatisfied with the draw at the start in Stuttgart, against 1. FC Köln the first home win should now come. For the “Effzeh” it is – againl – Game one without Modeste, but that worked out well against Schalke.
Our tip: RB Leipzig is too strong for 1. FC Köln and wins at home.
FC Schalke 04 endured a bitter start in Cologne with controversial refereeing decisions affecting the game. Borussia Mönchengladbach, on the other hand, got Daniel Far in his debutke a win, with Hoffenheim helping with the early dismissal. The Foals come into play as favorites – do they live up to the role?
Our tip: It won’t be easy for Borussia, but they will win by a narrow margin in the end.
What a furious start for FC Bayern with a 6-1 win in Frankfurt! Now ex-coach Niko Kovac comes with VfL Wolfsburg, who had a disappointing start against Werder Bremen.
Our tip: FC Bayern clearly has the upper hand.
