German Bundesliga: Gameweek 8 Preview

After an international break that was far too long, the good stuff is back, the German league of excellence – Bundesliga. Bayer Leverkusen remain on top of the log undefeated, while Harry Kane and the Bayern boys’ second spot was stolen by Stuttgart. Let’s see what this round has to offer.

Check out all gameweek 8 predications including a 5/1 treble.


Friday 20 October

7/20 Borussia Dortmund | Draw 46/10 | Werder Bremen 6/1 (20:30)

The opening fixture of the weekend holds our banker of the gameweek. Borussia Dortmund remain undefeated after four straight wins in the league and should comfortably dispose of Werder Bremen.


Saturday 21 October

52/10 Darmstadt | Draw 39/10 | RB Leipzig 9/20 (15:30)

Darmstadt continue to find the back of the net bar their opening round and picked up their second win in the topflight to make it back-to-back wins. Now, the home side face tough opposition in RB Leipzig who have also netted in all but one fixture. Back Leipzig and both teams to score (yes) at 17/10.


15/20 Freiburg | Draw 29/10 | Bochum 37/10 (15:30)

Although Freiburg are struggling, they tasted a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Bayern, Bochum is worse off. A fresh start after the international break should see Freiburg climb higher up the table.


11/10 Hoffenheim | Draw 51/20 | Eintracht Frankfurt 24/10 (15:30)

Eintracht Frankfurt boast the strongest defence in the league, conceding five goals in seven games, but lack the quality upfront scoring just six. Hoffenheim will have a tough day breaking down the away defence and need to be on their toes for a counterattack. The draw is likely.


33/20 Union Berlin | Draw 24/10 | Stuttgart 16/10 (15:30)

Two very contrasting teams’ matchup, with Union on a five-match losing streak across all comps while Stuttgart sits second on the log boasting a five-match win streak. To top off the run Stuttgart find themselves on, Serhou Guirrasy sits atop the goal scorer charts on 13. Back a Stuttgart win or the leading man to continue his form.


29/10 Wolfsburg | Draw 29/10 | Leverkusen 17/20 (15:30)

I feel sorry for Wolfsburg, suffering a heavy defeat at the hands of a high-flying Stuttgart before the international break, and now a return to action against higher soaring Bayer Leverkusen. The away side remain on top of the log undefeated and should make light work of their opposition.


7/1 Mainz | Draw 54/10 | Bayern Munich 3/10 (18:30)

Defending champions Bayern close out the show on Saturday against a struggling Mainz’ side, yet to find their first win of the season. Confidently back Bayern and totals over 2.5 at 5/10.


Sunday 22 October

13/10 Cologne | Draw 26/10 | Monchengladbach 39/20 (15:30)

Cologne went out and played a friendly against a German State Leagues side SC Reusrath winning 15-0, but that is not going to help in a matchup against M’Gladbach, struggling or not. The draw is the best choice here.

13/10 Heidenheim | Draw 26/10 | Augsburg 39/20 (17:30)

To close out the show, Heidenheim welcome Augsburg to the Voith-Arena separated by five places, but only two points. It’s a difficult fixture to call, but we can note that both teams have scored in all but three of their last 10 fixtures combined. Get on the BTTS (Yes) market at 11/20.

TREBLE @ 5/1

Dortmund Win 7/20

Freiburg Win 15/20

Stuttgart Win 16/10
