  • Bundesliga is back

The period of dreadful international games is over and we will finally get to see Bundesliga football again.

Hamburg vs Leipzig will kick off matchday three tomorrow in a duel that is surprisingly interesting. HSV have started the season with two wins after their debacle in the DFB Cup and sit, quite surprisingly, in third place behind BVB and Bayern. Leipzig on the other hand lost away to Schalke but bounced back against Freiburg. Will Hamburg surprise us all or will Leipzig get the three points?

Meanwhile Dortmund will look to stay at the top of the table with a win over Freiburg. The Breisgauer are struggling right now, earning just one point from the first two games, crashing out of the Europa League early and barely winning against an inferior side in the Cup. The way Dortmund are playing right now, anything but a BVB-win would be a huge upset.

The most interesting game will be on Saturday between Hoffenheim and Bayern. Coach Nagelsmann will look to get a result against the defending champs and maybe Felix Passlack can help him with that task.

Daily Buzz: Looks like Marcel Schmelzer will be ready to play this weekend. Zagadou has played pretty well at left back recently, meaning Peter Bosz has a tricky decision. Should he stick with Zagadou or get the captain back on the pitch?
