Saturday's Bundesliga predictions including Borussia Dortmund vs. Mainz

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Saturday's Bundesliga fixtures, including Borussia Dortmund vs. Mainz.


Dortmund vs. Mainz 05 (Saturday, 2.30pm)

Borussia Dortmund entertain Mainz 05 in the Bundesliga on Saturday, with the visitors needing to avoid defeat if they are to have a chance of moving off the bottom of the table.

Dortmund, meanwhile, are suddenly back in the title picture after a good run of form under Edin Terzic has helped them move to within five points of league leaders Bayern Munich.

We say: Borussia Dortmund 2-0 Mainz 05


Dortmund are unlikely to have as much space in behind Mainz's defence as they found at Leipzig, but should still have too much strength for their opposition.

Much will depend on how strong Terzic goes with his team selection ahead of a difficult match at Leverkusen on Tuesday, but any squad players coming into the side are still a cut above most of Mainz's options.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 2.5 goals.

Hoffenheim vs. Arminia Bielefeld (Saturday, 2.30pm)

Hoffenheim will be aiming to end a three-game winless run in all competitions when they welcome Arminia Bielefeld to the Rhein-Neckar-Arena for Saturday's Bundesliga clash.

Only two points separate the sides in the table heading into gameweek 16, with the hosts in 14th, while Arminia sit 15th as things stand.

We say: Hoffenheim 2-1 Arminia Bielefeld


The Hoffenheim faithful would have been shell-shocked after witnessing their team be put to the sword by Schalke last time out, and Hoeness will be demanding an immediate response from his players here. The hosts should be boosted by the returns of some key players from injury, and even though Arminia have every right to feel confident about their chances of winning, we expect Hoffenheim to bounce back with a slender victory on their own turf.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Werder Bremen vs. Augsburg (Saturday, 2.30pm)

Werder Bremen take on Augsburg in the Bundesliga on Saturday with the hosts nervously looking over their shoulders, having only won one of their last 12 league matches.

Augsburg, meanwhile, are looking to bounce back from last weekend's heavy 4-1 defeat at home to Stuttgart, whom they can climb back above in the table by beating Bremen.

We say: Werder Bremen 1-1 Augsburg


Only the bottom four sides have scored fewer goals than these two teams in the Bundesliga this season, so it is hard to envisage a goal fest.

With Bremen drawing six of their 15 games this season 1-1, it would not be a surprise to see the same scoreline against an Augsburg side which has scored eight and conceded eight in their seven games on the road this season.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

FC Koln vs. Hertha Berlin (Saturday, 2.30pm)

FC Koln and Hertha Berlin will both be aiming to bounce back from respective defeats in the Bundesliga when they lock horns at the RheinEnergieStadion on Saturday afternoon.

The hosts were humiliated by Freiburg in a 5-0 drubbing last time out, whereas Hertha suffered a dismal defeat of their own to newly-promoted Arminia Bielefeld.

We say: FC Koln 1-1 Hertha Berlin


Neither of these two sides inspire much confidence given their respective home and away forms, which should act as an added incentive for both Koln and Hertha to get the job done on Saturday. The visitors could struggle on the attacking front if Cunha and Ngankam are both ruled out, but Koln have significant problems of their own to overcome in the final third, and we expect the two teams to cancel each other out at the RheinEnergieStadion.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Wolfsburg vs. RB Leipzig (Saturday, 2.30pm)

Wolfsburg entertain RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga on Saturday with the hosts looking to close the gap in the table between the two sides to three points.

The visitors are looking to bounce back from a hugely disappointing 3-1 loss at home to Borussia Dortmund last weekend.

We say: Wolfsburg 1-1 RB Leipzig


With both league meetings ending as a draw last season and the two sides missing several first-team players through injury, both managers could be forgiven for settling for a point apiece on Saturday.

Leipzig in particular are lacking several of their creative midfielders, so may be forced into playing in a more defensive manner than usual.

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

Stuttgart vs. Borussia M'bach (Saturday, 5.30pm)

Stuttgart host Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga on Saturday with the visitors looking to continue moving up the table after their impressive 3-2 win over league leaders Bayern Munich last weekend.

Stuttgart, meanwhile, are still looking for their first home win of the season despite an excellent return to Germany's top flight.

We say: Stuttgart 1-2 Borussia Monchengladbach


Despite Gladbach potentially being without their three main forwards, the combination of Stindl and Hofmann should provide enough attacking quality to overcome Stuttgart.

The hosts have proved to be a real Jekyll and Hyde team in terms of the contrast in their results at home and on the road, with Matarazzo's side likely to have to wait a little longer for their first home win of the season.

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