Saturday's Bundesliga predictions including Borussia Dortmund vs. Schalke 04

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Saturday's Bundesliga fixtures, including the derby between Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04.

Bayern vs. Frankfurt (Saturday, 2.30pm)

Bayern Munich host Eintracht Frankfurt in the 2020-21 Bundesliga campaign at the Allianz Arena on Saturday, with both sides currently occupying Champions League qualification positions.

Bayern's 4-1 win at Arminia Bielefeld last weekend took them up to second in the table, with Frankfurt retaining their unbeaten record with a 1-1 draw at FC Koln.

We say: Bayern Munich 3-1 Eintracht Frankfurt

This match tends to provide plenty of goals in recent times, with Frankfurt's 5-1 hammering of Bayern last season proving to be Niko Kovac's final game in charge.

The reverse fixture saw Bayern run out 5-2 winners with Flick in charge, while Frankfurt pushed the Bavarians all the way before losing 2-1 in last season's DFB Pokal semi-final. We think they can give Bayern another good test this weekend, especially having had a week's rest, but ultimately Bayern's attack will prove too strong in the end.

Our tipster partners are predicting that both teams will score (BTTS - yes).

RB Leipzig vs. Hertha Berlin (Saturday, 2.30pm)

RB Leipzig head into Saturday's 2020-21 Bundesliga meeting with Hertha Berlin full of confidence after last weekend's 2-0 win at Augsburg kept them unbeaten and top of the table after four matches.

Hertha, meanwhile, are unexpectedly languishing perilously close to the relegation zone after three consecutive losses has seen them drop to 15th place in the table.

We say: RB Leipzig 2-1 Hertha Berlin

Klostermann's potentially lengthy absence after undergoing knee surgery presents Nagelsman with an undoubted defensive issue in terms of whether to retain the back three which has worked so well or move to a more conventional back four.

As they showed at the Allianz Arena prior to the international break, Hertha are a dangerous counter-attacking side who can punish defensive vulnerabilities. However, they have their own at the moment, too, so we expect Leipzig to be a little too strong for them in their current state.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

Union Berlin vs. Freiburg (Saturday, 2.30pm)

Two teams who have experienced identical starts to the 2020-21 Bundesliga season will meet at the Stadion An der Alten Forsterei on Saturday as Union Berlin face off against Freiburg.

Both sides have recorded one win, two draws and one loss thus far, with Union taking a point off of Schalke in a 1-1 draw and Freiburg and Werder Bremen sharing the spoils with the same scoreline last time out.

We say: Union Berlin 1-1 Freiburg

Union boast a good record on familiar territory and will be determined to make amends after failing to beat a lowly Schalke side in gameweek four. However, Freiburg ought to feel confident of doing enough to get over the line as well, but we think this one will end all square and the two clubs will both record a second 1-1 stalemate in as many matches.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Mainz 05 vs. Borussia M'bach (Saturday, 2.30pm)

Mainz 05 head into their 2020-21 Bundesliga match with Borussia Monchengladbach as the only remaining team in the league without a point after the opening four games.

Gladbach, meanwhile, were frustratingly held to a second successive home draw by Wolfsburg last weekend, and will be disappointed to find themselves in 11th place with only five points.

We say: Mainz 05 1-3 Borussia Monchengladbach

Gladbach's open style has seen them concede in every match this season, so there is at least hope for Mainz that they can score, having blanked in their last two matches.

However, the likes of Thuram, Hofmann and Alassane Plea should have far too much for a Mainz side who look destined for a long, difficult campaign.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Dortmund vs. Schalke (Saturday, 5.30pm)

Borussia Dortmund host Schalke 04 in the 2020-21 Bundesliga on Saturday in the 157th meeting of the Revierderby.

The two Ruhr-based arch-rivals could hardly be in more contrasting form at the moment, with Dortmund third on nine points after four games and Schalke just one place off the bottom on a solitary point.

We say: Borussia Dortmund 2-0 Schalke 04

We cannot see Schalke stinking the place out as badly as they did in the 4-0 defeat in May, but equally it is almost impossible to see beyond a Dortmund win.

The visitors will likely look to sit deep and frustrate their rivals, but it will surely only be a matter of time before Haaland or Sancho capitalise on the dynamic width provided by wing-backs Thomas Meunier and Raphael Guerreiro to score the crucial opening goal.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.
