Bundesliga, Week 7: Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen are all at home this weekend

Thomas Starke

The top sides are all at home this weekend in the Week 7 in the Bundesliga.

The Bundesliga returns to action this weekend after the midweek Pokal matches. Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, and Bayer Leverkusen will all be hosting matches this weekend.

Friday, September 27

Augsburg vs. Borussia Mönchengladbach

The Friday match this weekend is Borussia Mönchengladbach visiting Augsburg. They may be level on points, but Lucien Favre's side holds a +7 goal differential over Augsburg. They put together an impressive victory last weekend over a poor Eintracht Braunschweig and should make light work of Augsburg on Friday.

Time & Location: 20:30 Local / 2:30 PM Eastern; SGL Arena, Augsburg

Prediction: Augsburg 0 - 2 Borussia Mönchengladbach

Saturday, September 28

Borussia Dortmund vs. Freiburg

It's been a tough week for Borussia Dortmund, but they've come through it still on top in the Bundesliga and are moving onto the third round of the DFB Pokal. Freiburg haven't been good so far this season, and BVB should make light work of them.

Time & Location: 15:30 Local / 9:30 AM Eastern; Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund

Prediction: Borussia Dortmund 3 - 1 Freiburg

Bayern Munich vs. Wolfsburg

The champions are starting to look like they're really coming together under Pep Guardiola. The real test will begin once Mario Götze, Thiago Alcantara and Javi Martinez are back to full fitness. They beat Schalke last weekend 4-0 and beat Hannover 4-1 midweek in the Pokal. Bayern are on a roll right now. Wolfsburg are on nine points thus far and are playing decent, but inconsistent, football. It's going to be very tough for them to walk out of Munich with any points.

Time & Location: 15:30 Local / 9:30 AM Eastern; Allianz Arena, Munich

Prediction: Bayern Munich 2 - 0 Wolfsburg

Bayer Leverkusen vs. Hannover

With Bayern and BVB likely walking away from their games with victories this weekend, Bayer Leverkusen need a good performance against Hannover to keep right with the top two. Stefan Kießling, Sidney Sam, and Heung Min Son are putting together a fearsome attacking trio and are making the rest of the league take notice.

Time & Location: 15:30 Local / 9:30 AM Eastern; BayArena, Leverkusen

Prediction: Bayer Leverkusen 2 - 1 Hannover

Hoffenheim vs. Schalke

Last weekend was awful for Schalke, but I firmly believe that they're back on the right track. They're too talented to not beat Hoffenheim on the day.

Time & Location: 15:30 Local / 9:30 AM Eastern; Rhein Neckar Arena, Sinsheim

Prediction: Hoffenheim 1 - 2 Schalke

Hertha Berlin vs. Mainz

Mainz have lost three in a row after opening the season with three straight wins. This weekend they'll get back on the winning track thanks to Nicolai Müller and Shinji Okazaki.

Time & Location: 15:30 Local / 9:30 AM Eastern; Olympic Stadium, Berlin

Prediction: Hertha Berlin 1 - 2 Mainz

Eintracht Frankfurt vs. Hamburg

If you're looking for a Bundesliga side to start supporting, why not Frankfurt? They're fun to watch, and they should start to put together a good run of form here soon. Expect to see them further up the table as we move closer to the winter break.

Time & Location: 18:30 Local / 12:30 PM Eastern; Commerzbank Arena, Frankfurt

Prediction: Eintracht Frankfurt 2 - 1 Hamburg

Sunday, September 22

Werder Bremen vs. Nürnberg

Werder Bremen aren't a very good team, yet they're sitting on nine points. It really shows that I don't know a lot. Nürnberg don't score many goals, but they don't concede many either. The match likely won't see a lot of goals.

Time & Location: 15:30 Local / 9:30 AM Eastern; Weserstadion, Bremen

Prediction: Werder Bremen 0 - 1 Nürnberg

Eintracht Braunschweig vs. Stuttgart

I can't pick Braunschweig to win a game, but it's actually possible that they'll shocked me one day. Thomas Schneider's side will pull out the victory on the day, and they will be led by Vedad Ibisevic, of course.

Time & Location: 17:30 Local / 11:30 AM Eastern; Eintracht Stadion, Braunschweig

Prediction: Eintracht Braunschweig 1 - 3 Stuttgart
