Stuttgart vs. Freiburg (Saturday, 2.30pm)
The two teams endured mixed fortunes last weekend but all of that is put to one side as they look to earn the bragging rights in the Baden-Wurttemberg region.
We say: Stuttgart 2-1 Freiburg
We believe this could be a tight match that is very hard to call between two rivals with different fortunes last week. The sides are fairly evenly matched but with home advantage and the fans returning to back them in the derby, we say Stuttgart will just edge out Freiburg in this one.
Mainz 05 vs. Greuther Furth (Saturday, 2.30pm)
Mainz will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing defeat last weekend, whilst Greuther Furth are hoping to earn their first win of the new campaign.
We say: Mainz 05 2-0 Greuther Furth
Mainz should be expected to get back on track here against the newly-promoted strugglers. After welcoming back a host of first-team players from COVID, the home side should have enough to return to form and pile the misery on for Greuther Furth again.
Augsburg vs. B. Leverkusen (Saturday, 2.30pm)
The hosts come into this one looking for their first win, and first goal in fact, in the league this campaign, whilst the visitors are in high spirits after an unbeaten start under new leadership.
We say: Augsburg 1-3 Bayer Leverkusen
It is difficult to look past Bayer Leverkusen for this match, after their impressive start to the season under their new manager and when factoring in Augsburg's poor start and awful record against their visitors.
Leverkusen should manage to add a few goals to their five scored already, whilst we predict that the hosts will at least manage their first league goal of the new campaign.
Arminia Bielefeld vs. Frankfurt (Saturday, 2.30pm)
The hosts have begun the new season with two low-key draws, whilst the visitors earned their first point last weekend after an opening day thrashing.
We say: Arminia Bielefeld 1-1 Eintracht Frankfurt
A tough match to call here between two sides struggling for goals and a win at the start of the new campaign. For this reason, we say a hard-fought 1-1 draw is to be the outcome in scenarios such as this one.
FC Koln vs. VfL Bochum (Saturday, 2.30pm)
The two sides will be expected to slide towards the bottom of the table over the course of the year, but a win for either in this encounter would complete a very solid start to the season.
We say: FC Koln 2-1 VfL Bochum
Both Modeste and Uth are likely to prove a handful for the Bochum defenders and the visitors' away form leaves a lot to be desired, so Koln look the more likely side to edge the match.
Bayern vs. Hertha Berlin (Saturday, 5.30pm)
Hertha have one of the toughest early-season schedules and things will not get any easier for them in the third round of Bundesliga fixtures.
We say: Bayern Munich 3-1 Hertha Berlin
Bayern have struggled a bit at the back so far this season but will surely have enough to comfortably see off a Hertha side low on confidence, who have conceded five in two games against lesser competition.
