Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Saturday's Bundesliga action, including Bayer Leverkusen vs. RB Leipzig.

RB Leipzig will be looking to pick up from where they left off on their travels when they take on Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Bulls won their last four away games last season and went seven without defeat, but Leverkusen have been solid on home soil in 2020, winning six out of eight at BayArena.

We say: Bayer Leverkusen 1-2 RB Leipzig


Both teams are having to cope with the loss of key men. Leipzig hit the ground running with a routine home win on the opening weekend, whereas Leverkusen were held by Wolfsburg, and we can see the visitors prevailing in this one.

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

Two sides that made winning starts to their Bundesliga campaigns meet at the WWK ARENA on Saturday as Borussia Dortmund travel to Augsburg.

Dortmund cruised to a 3-0 victory over Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend, while Augsburg were 3-1 winners over Union Berlin in their opener.

We say: Augsburg 1-3 Borussia Dortmund


Both sides have made a bright start to their 2020-21 campaigns by winning two games from two in all competitions, but something has to give in this contest.

Augsburg have won only one of their last 10 Bundesliga games against a Dortmund side boasting six away league wins on the spin, so we are backing the visitors to come out on top.

Our tipster partners are predicting an away win.

Two sides searching for their first win of the new Bundesliga season at the second attempt will lock horns on Saturday as Arminia Bielefeld play host to FC Koln.

Arminia drew 1-1 with Eintracht Frankfurt in the opening weekend, while Koln succumbed to a 3-2 defeat to Hoffenheim upon their return to action.

We say: Arminia Bielefeld 1-2 FC Koln


Koln will be more motivated than ever to end their winless run following the manner of their defeat against Hoffenheim. Arminia were full value for their opening-day point against Frankfurt but did concede several chances to their opponents, so we expect Koln to edge a closely-fought encounter and register their first three points in six months.

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

Last season's fourth-placed side Borussia Monchengladbach will be eager to pick up their first points of the new Bundesliga campaign after suffering a chastening 3-0 defeat away to Borussia Dortmund on matchday one.

Their opponents, Union Berlin, also kicked off their season with a loss, falling 3-1 at home to Augsburg and now face a tricky trip to Monchengladbach.

We say: Borussia Monchengladbach 4-1 Union Berlin


Gladbach were bested by a dazzling Dortmund side but will be keen to right the wrongs and Union Berlin could find themselves on the wrong side of a heavy defeat as the hosts look to prove a point.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Mainz 05 host newly-promoted Stuttgart in a fixture both sides will see as a significant opportunity to pick up some much-needed points in their respective fights for survival.

Both teams suffered defeat in their first outing of the campaign - Mainz lost 3-1 at RB Leipzig, while Stuttgart were beaten 3-2 at home by Freiburg - and will be eager to redeem themselves.

We say: Mainz 05 3-2 Stuttgart


Neither side showed a particular aptitude for defending in their opening fixtures and both will likely approach the game positively in the hope of claiming all three points. The more established home side could edge out their newly-promoted opponents in what may well be an entertaining, high-scoring game.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Schalke vs. Werder Bremen (Saturday, 5.30pm)

Schalke 04 will be hoping to regain some pride against Werder Bremen on Saturday after starting their season on the wrong end of an 8-0 hammering by reigning champions Bayern Munich.

They will take heart from the fact that their visitors did not start their season well either, losing 4-1 to Hertha Berlin at home as Werder's poor form from last season spills over into this one.

We say: Schalke 04 0-2 Werder Bremen


While neither side started the season well, Schalke's incredible winless streak of 17 games in the league is difficult to ignore. Werder may well be able to cause an upset and take advantage of a side in something of a freefall, just as they did in May.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
