Frankfurt v Dusseldorf
Frankfurt have had a decent start and have scored in all seven games this season and take on Dusseldorf who have struggled but managed two draws in their three away games. The two meetings at this level both ended in home wins and were both Over 2.5 goals. I think Frankfurt will have too much for Dusseldorf and am going to recommend a split trade on them to win at 1.80 and also on the handicap market Frankfurt -1 at 3.00.

Nurnberg v Hoffenheim
A fixture that Hoffenheim should really be winning but they have lost their last two and two of their three away games this season. The good thing for them is that they have scored in all seven games this season so that is something in their favour. Nurnberg bounced back from a 7-0 drubbing by Dortmund to beat Dusseldorf 3-0 but then were on the wrong end of a 6-0 beating by Leipzig. The last seven head to head has seen Over 2.5 goals six times and I fancy that could be the way again here but the price of 1.53 is prohibitive so Hoffenheim at 1.91 has to be the call.
Wolfsburg v Bayern Munich
Wolfsburg have only beaten Bayern once in sixteen previous meetings at this level and they will never have a better chance against a Bayern side that is underperforming. They have not won in three, losing two of those games so they need the International break to have had a big effect on their players. Perhaps it will be, but we cannot recommend Bayern at 1.40 away. Eight of the last nine head to head have gone Over 2.5 goals and as that is available at 1.50 that is the preferred option and we can still win if Bayern do find their form and goal scoring prowess.
Stuttgart v Dortmund
A game that doesn’t take a lot of analysing and there is sure to be goals. The last nine head to head have all gone Over 2.5 goals and the price of 1.61 is about right here but we can get 1.91 on Dortmund to win and in their current form that should be taken. They are unbeaten whereas Stuttgart have only won the once with the only doubt being that Dortmund are not so expansive away from home. If they get in front, then trade for your stake back.

Moenchengladbach v Mainz
Gladbach have scored in all seven games this season and sit deservedly, in third place. They have lost just once and won all three home games. Mainz have lost two of their seven games with three draws. Four of the last five meetings were Under 2.5 goals and six of Mainz’s seven games were also Under but Gladbach score goals and five of their seven games were Over. The stats suggest Under 2.5 goals and whilst I don’t like that market, 2.40 is a fair price.
