We’re continuing our weekly Bundesliga predictions with a near-10/1 Saturday treble from the fifth round of fixtures in Germany’s top division.
Matches in this competition are always well supported and invariably produce lots of thrilling goalmouth action for fans to cheer on.
Freiburg and Augsburg to draw @ 11/4
Three wins from four matches represents a fine start for Freiburg and they should be high on confidence after romping to a 3-0 triumph at Hoffenheim last Sunday. However, Augsburg kick-started their campaign with a 2-1 defeat of Eintracht Frankfurt, so they should also now be in good spirits. Martin Schmidt’s side previously showed plenty of spirit in a 3-2 loss at Werder Bremen after having Stefan Lichtsteiner sent off on 34 minutes, so we’re backing them to get a point at Schwarzwald-Stadion in our Bundesliga predictions.
Hertha Berlin to beat Paderborn @ 67/100
These two teams are joint bottom of the Bundesliga, with just one point apiece from four rounds of fixtures, but we believe Hertha have far more scope for improvement. The hosts finished in a comfortable mid-table position last term and were solid for most of that season at Olympiastadion. The likes of Niklas Stark, Marko Grujic and Davie Selke give Hertha a strong spine and this is a golden opportunity to start climbing up the ladder.
RB Leipzig to win at Werder Bremen @ 18/25
Big things were expected of RB Leipzig this season and they have not disappointed so far. New boss Julian Nagelsmann has led them to three wins and a draw against Bayern Munich from four Bundesliga matches, while Timo Werner’s double strike inspired a 2-1 Champions League victory at Benfica on Tuesday night. Werder Bremen will have been buoyed by back-to-back wins over Augsburg and Union Berlin either side of the international break, but this represents a significant step up in class.
