Bundesliga Preview And Predictions - Week Four

The Bundesliga continues this weekend following the international break with Wolfsburg top of the table and the only side to have won all their opening games. This weekend we focus on three more games involving the title contenders beginning with Leverkusen who welcome Dortmund, Bayern Munich who travel to Leipzig in the late Saturday kick-off and Frankfurt who get things underway on Sunday against Stuttgart. Check out our preview and predictions below and if that isn't enough, we also have our preview and predictions for the weekend's action from all of Europe's top leagues.


Leverkusen v Dortmund

It has been an impressive start to the season for Leverkusen. Having drawn with Union Berlin on the opening weekend, they’ve recorded 4-0 and 4-1 victories over B. M’gladbach and Augsburg respectively, and they look well primed to take the game to Dortmund. 

The Black and Yellows have beaten both Frankfurt and Hoffenheim in high scoring encounters, but that sandwiched a 2-1 defeat in their sole trip this term at Freiburg. Marco Rose built a reputation at his last club, the Foals, for his phenomenal home form, but this will be a serious challenge for his charges to overcome in order to build at the start of the campaign. 

As far as the game is concerned, this looks like it could go either way but one thing that looks certain is goals. Dortmund have had 15 goals in three games so far, while the hosts have had 11. Moreover, the last seven head-to-heads have seen more than two goals dating back to the 2017/18 campaign, which looks a shoo-in to happen again.



Leipzig v Bayern Munich

The big encounter in the Bundesliga this weekend sees Leipzig host Bayern. We’re expecting a fierce match between them, as the Bavarian giants have signed both Dayot Upamecano and Marcel Sabitzer as well as their next opponent’s manager for this season, and that has looked to have faltered the hopes of the Bulls this term. 

Jesse Marsch has already lost two of his three outings so far and it isn’t going to get any easier against the biggest team in Germany. Only once have they overcome their rivals in the league since being promoted to the Bundesliga for the 2016/17 season and although they’ve drawn four of their six winless meetings with Bayern since the start of 2018/19, these two outfits look very different this time around following the mass exodus from Leipzig over the summer. It is worth noting that the hosts have gone W12-D4-L2 at this stadium since the beginning of last term, but those two defeats were against both Dortmund and Bayern, and the visitors get the nod for us. 



Frankfurt v Stuttgart

It has been a nightmare start to the season for Frankfurt as having played what could be a couple of the weaker sides in the league, they’re yet to get their first victory. A 5-2 defeat to Dortmund on the opening weekend can be forgiven, but stalemates against Augsburg and Bielefeld will go down as missed opportunities if they want to fight it out at the top end of the table this term. 

Stuttgart, on the other hand, are a little harder to judge on their results. Defeats to Leipzig and Freiburg are frustrating but not the end of the world, while their only victory came against promoted outfit Greuther Furth. 

Both meetings between the two last term ended in draws and considering where the two teams are currently at, we think that’s the way to go again in this matchup. Indeed, the Eagles didn’t lose a single match on home turf last term (W10-D7), while they’ve drawn their only match at Deutsche Bank Park so far this season, and we’ll bank on the two teams sharing the spoils.
