Borussia Dortmund -2 to beat Cologne @ 31/20
Dortmund return to domestic action having virtually secured their place in the knockout stage of the Champions League with a 3-0 victory over Club Brugge. Cologne have yet to win this season although four of their five defeats have been by one-goal margins. Bayern Munich fielded a weakened team when they ran out 2-1 winners at Cologne, who lost 3-1 and 5-1 to Dortmund last season. Lucien Favre’s side have won three of their four home games by three-goal margins and won 5-2 at Hertha Berlin last time out so we’re confident they can win by two goals or more as the first of our Bundesliga predictions.
Borussia Monchengladbach -1 to beat Schalke @ 19/20
Gladbach take on bottom-of-the-table Schalke buoyed by a 4-0 rout of Shakhtar on Wednesday which has put them in pole position to make it into the last 16 of the Champions League. Schalke’s first three away games resulted in 8-0, 4-0 and 3-0 defeats by Bayern, Leipzig and Dortmund respectively, so another tough trip will not fill them with confidence. Die Fohlen have drawn three of their four home games this season, but should beat Schalke by at least a couple of goals at close to evens.
Augsburg to beat Freiburg @ 7/5
Last season’s meetings between the teams finished 1-1, but Augsburg seem decent value to get the better of Freiburg this weekend. The Fuggerstadter held Champions League outfit Monchengladbach 1-1 last week when they snatched a late equaliser despite having Raphael Framberger sent off midway through the second half. Freiburg have failed to win since the opening day of the season and sank to a new low last Sunday when they lost 3-1 at home to rock-bottom Mainz, who were beaten by the same scoreline in Augsburg three weeks earlier.
