Saturday's Bundesliga predictions including Borussia Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Saturday's Bundesliga action, including Borussia Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich.


RB Leipzig vs. Freiburg (Saturday, 2.30pm)

RB Leipzig host Freiburg on Saturday having lost top spot in the table in the early stages of the 2020-21 Bundesliga season after a 1-0 defeat at Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend.

Freiburg, meanwhile, are without a win since the opening day of the season and are sliding closer to the relegation zone each week as a result.

We say: RB Leipzig 2-1 Freiburg


We expect Leipzig to use the midweek win over PSG as an important confidence boost on their way to a narrow victory here.

Freiburg looked good offensively against Leverkusen and with a bit more luck in their favour easily could have won on another day, but Leipzig should control the game more efficiently than Peter Bosz's side.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Union Berlin head into their Bundesliga encounter with Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday looking to extend their unbeaten record to six matches.

Meanwhile, Arminia Bielefeld make the trip to Stadion An der Alten Forsterei on the back of four consecutive league defeats, conceding nine goals in the process.

We say: Union Berlin 3-1 Arminia Bielefeld


The last four meetings between the two sides have finished as 1-1 draws but with the home side in good form, scoring in all eight of their matches in all competitions this campaign, and with the visitors still adjusting to life back in the top flight, Union Berlin should be able to secure their third Bundesliga victory.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Mainz 05 vs. Schalke (Saturday, 2.30pm)

Mainz 05 host Schalke 04 as the two sides bottom of the 2020-21 Bundesliga table look for their first win of the campaign.

Mainz's 3-1 defeat at Augsburg sees them remain without a point this season, while Schalke's 1-1 draw at home to Stuttgart keeps them to within a win from potentially moving out of the relegation zone.

We say: Mainz 05 1-1 Schalke 04


With defeat disastrous for both sides here, we can see a cagey draw playing out as neither side will want to lose ground on each other in the race to avoid relegation.

Understandably, neither side are playing with much confidence at all at present, so it is unlikely to be one for the purists to savour.

Stuttgart vs. Frankfurt (Saturday, 2.30pm)

Stuttgart entertain Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday with the two sides level on points in the early stages of the 2020-21 Bundesliga season.

The hosts were denied victory at Schalke 04 last weekend, with Frankfurt also held by Werder Bremen.

We say: Stuttgart 1-1 Eintracht Frankfurt


While Frankfurt probably have the greater attacking talent of the two sides, Stuttgart are a better functioning team at present and as such we can see a draw in an even encounter.

The visitors will be desperate to get back to winning ways having stuttered of late, but will find it tough to do so.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Augsburg vs. Hertha Berlin (Saturday, 2.30pm)

Augsburg host Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga on Saturday as they look for successive league wins and hope to replicate last season's 4-0 victory against this weekend's opponents.

Meanwhile, Hertha Berlin are hoping that they can end their poor run of form after losing four of their last five Bundesliga matches.

We say: Augsburg 1-1 Hertha Berlin


There have been eight draws in the last 16 Bundesliga meetings between the two sides and on Saturday we could see yet another close game. Labbidia seems to have found a way to get results against Augsburg in recent seasons, but with the home team in good form, both sides may have to settle for a ninth draw in as many years.

Our tipster partners are predicting an away win.

Dortmund vs. Bayern (Saturday, 5.30pm)

Borussia Dortmund host Bayern Munich on Saturday in Der Klassiker, in what could prove to a pivotal meeting in the race to win the 2020-21 Bundesliga title.

The two sides are level on 15 points at the top of the table, with Bayern only ahead of their rivals on goal difference.

We say: Borussia Dortmund 2-2 Bayern Munich


With both sides missing defensive options, we can see a similarly high scoring match to September's German Super Cup, which Bayern edged 3-2 late in the match.

Bayern will obviously be favourites, with the fitness of Hummels crucial to keeping Lewandowski as quiet as possible, but Dortmund look to have a bit more edge about them this season and avoiding defeat would be a positive step for them in their title hunt.

Our tipster partners are predicting an away win.
