RB Leipzig v Fortuna Dusseldorf BT Sport 2, 2.30pm

Crushed by Dortmund in their opener, Leipzig almost suffered a Europa League embarrassment against Zorya before Emil Forsberg spared their blushes with a late penalty.

They need to show some authority at home to a Dusseldorf side who will be devastated to have lost their home opener against Augsburg.

Steve Davies' recommendation
RB Leipzig
2pts 4-9 Betway

Key stat
Dusseldorf have kept only one clean sheet in their last 13 league games.

Schalke v Hertha Berlin BT Sport 2, 5pm

Schalke started off with a 2-1 loss at Wolfsburg but they are usually tough to beat at home and should be too strong for Hertha Berlin at the Veltins-Arena.

A 1-0 success at home to Nuremburg was a solid enough start for Hertha but they have lost their last three matches against Schalke without scoring a goal.

Dan Childs's recommendation
Schalke to win 2-0
1pt 13-2 general

Key stat
Schalke have won five of their last six home league matches.
