Bayern Munich - Borussia Dortmund
First v second, Pep v Tuchel, Lewandowski v Aubameyang. It’s the game that the whole of Germany is waiting for.
Bayern’s form - all wins - has been imperious since their Supercup defeat by Wolfsburg, but Dortmund have only mustered three draws in their last three games in all competitions.
The home side are naturally favourites. But BVB, under Tuchel, create an incredible amount of high-profile goal-scoring chances, and even if you don’t quite trust them to come away with a point or more from the Allianz Arena, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could easily continue his run of netting in every single game.
The Gabonese international is 3.80 to beat Manuel Neuer.
Schalke - FC Köln
Despite a wobble at Wolfsburg in August, Schalke have made a brilliant start to the season in coach André Breitenreiter's first campaign in charge. A Franco Di Santo hat-trick helped them to a comfortable win in the Europa League during the week and Cologne are the next visitors to the Veltins-Arena.
Peter Stöger's side have also started the campaign well but Schalke's recent form suggests the hosts will have a little bit too much for them this time. Expect no Europa League hangover here with Schalke to win at 1.75.
Bayer Leverkusen - FC Augsburg
In true Leverkusen fashion, Roger Schmidt's side blew their chance of an historic win at the Camp Nou in the space of 82 seconds on Tuesday night. That still shouldn't take too much away from what was an otherwise excellent display. To overcome Augsburg, they may not have to play as well judging by the dismal form of Markus Weinzierl's side who seem to be struggling to cope with the challenge of the Europa League.
Leverkusen are likely to be the winners then here, with -1 priced at 2.00.
