Fortuna Dusseldorf v Bayer Leverkusen 5.30pm
Go for goals in the Rheinland derby with newly-promoted Fortuna Dusseldorf capable of making life tricky for Bayer Leverkusen.

Fortuna had seven shots on target in last week's 0-0 draw at Stuttgart and have also beaten Hoffenheim 2-1 at home as well as forcing eight attempts at goal in a 1-1 draw at Leipzig which could quite easily have witnessed many more goals.

Recommendation
Both teams to score & over 2.5 goals
1pt 4-5 Sky Bet

Key stat
Fortuna Dusseldorf are averaging six shots on target per game in this season's Bundesliga.

Borussia Dortmund v Nuremberg 7.30pm

The Bundesliga season started with a fine 4-1 win over Leipzig but since then it has been mainly a grind for Borussia Dortmund, who have tightened up defensively without finding fluency in the attacking department.

Nuremberg, with only one defeat since gaining promotion, have seen all four matches go under 2.5 goals which suggests they can be solid enough to keep the score respectable in Dortmund.

Recommendation
Borussia Dortmund to win & under 3.5 goals
1pt 5-4 Betway, Coral, Ladbrokes

Key stat
Nuremberg's four Bundesliga matches this season have produced a total of just seven goals.
