Union Berlin vs. Borussia M'bach (Saturday, 2.30pm)
The visitors, meanwhile, returned to winning ways by defeating Hoffenheim 2-1 last weekend.
We say: Union Berlin 1-1 Borussia Monchengladbach
Although Gladbach have massively improved in recent weeks, they have only won one of six away games in the Bundesliga so far this season. On the flipside, Union Berlin have not tasted victory since late August.
However, Die Eisernen have avoided defeat in three of their last four outings, and they will be desperate to deliver a victory for their new manager. We can envisage a share of the spoils, which would leave the hosts bottom of the table, but heading in the right direction once again.
Frankfurt vs. Bayern (Saturday, 2.30pm)
The visitors, meanwhile, did not play last weekend as their scheduled match against Union Berlin was postponed due to adverse weather conditions in Bavaria.
We say: Eintracht Frankfurt 0-3 Bayern Munich
Frankfurt's form has fallen off a cliff at the worst possible moment in terms of facing Germany's biggest club and strongest team. Only Freiburg and the bottom eight teams have scored fewer goals than Toppmoller's side in the Bundesliga so far this season, so we can envisage them blanking on Saturday.
The same can certainly not be said for Bayern, who are outscoring every other side in Germany once again. Their defensive record of nine goals conceded in 12 games is also the best record, and they will be confident of moving top of the table with a comfortable victory.
Wolfsburg vs. Freiburg (Saturday, 2.30pm)
Wolfsburg will be aiming to bounce back from defeat when they host Freiburg in the Bundesliga on Saturday.
The visitors, meanwhile, returned to victorious ways with an impressive win away to Mainz 05 last weekend.
We say: Wolfsburg 1-2 Freiburg
Wolfsburg's season appears to have hit a major bump in the road in recent weeks, with Kovac's side seemingly unable to defend to any decent standard. Although their home form has been much stronger than their away record, we believe that they could be vulnerable to another defeat this weekend.
Indeed, Freiburg enjoyed a free midweek having already been eliminated from the DFB-Pokal, so they could be fresher as they look to gain back-to-back victories away from home.
Werder Bremen vs. Augsburg (Saturday, 2.30pm)
Augsburg, meanwhile, have put together an impressive unbeaten run of six matches.
We say: Werder Bremen 1-1 Augsburg
Werder Bremen will be desperate to avoid another defeat, otherwise they will be left vulnerable to falling inside the bottom three positions after enduring a poor run of form. Augsburg, on the other hand, require a win to guarantee remaining in the top half of the table.
Thorup's side have drawn 1-1 in their last two away trips, and we can envisage them sharing the spoils once again. This result would likely suit both teams, as it would stop the rot for the host while extending the visitors' unbeaten run.
Heidenheim vs. SV Darmstadt 98 (Saturday, 2.30pm)
Both sides have previously met on 20 occasions in the second and third tiers of German football, but this will be their first-ever encounter against one another in the top fight.
We say: Heidenheim 2-1 SV Darmstadt 98
A closely-fought contest between two teams desperate to returning to winning way and climb away from danger is set to take place on Saturday.
Taking into account Heidenheim's home form and Darmstadt's struggles on the road, we believe the hosts will do just enough to grind out hard-fought victory to remain outside of the bottom three.
Dortmund vs. RB Leipzig (Saturday, 5.30pm)
The two teams lock horns for the first time since April when Die Roten Bullen secured a 2-0 home win in the DFB-Pokal quarter-finals en route to winning the cup.
We say: Borussia Dortmund 2-4 RB Leipzig
Goals are to be expected in this highly-anticipated contest as the net has rippled at least three times in 10 of the last 14 meetings between these two teams.
Leipzig have had plenty of joy over Dortmund in the last few years and we feel that Rose's men, refreshed after a week off, have the firepower to cause problems in the final third once again when they face a depleted and deflated BVB outfit who have been conceding goals for fun of late.
