Ingolstadt v Borussia Dortmund prediction: 2
Newly-promoted Ingolstadt bagged a surprise victory at Mainz in their Bundesliga debut.
Including the DFB Pokal and Europa League qualifiers, Borussia Dortmund are 100% from their first 4 fixtures but the 4-0 destruction of Gladbach in the Bundesliga opener was by far the most impressive display from week one.
BVB have developed new and versatile attacking style under new manager Thomas Tuchel and are now more comfortable in possession.
Borussia Monchengladbach v Mainz prediction: 1
Gladbach’s trip to Dortmund (0-4) last weekend didn’t go according to plan, luckily not every game will be as tough for them.
The Foals built most of their success last term on strong home form, winning 9 of their last 10 Bundesliga matches at Borussia Park. They also have a great record against Sunday’s opponents too – they haven’t been beaten by Die Nullfunfer in 8 matches.
A 1-0 home defeat to newly-promoted Ingolstadt represented an awful start to the season for Mainz.
The visitors lost key players in the summer like star striker Shinji Okazaki and midfield general Johannes Geis.

Marseille v Troyes prediction: 1
This is new Marseille manager Michel’s first game in charge. So the home players will be keen to impress their new boss and to also chalk up their first win after 2 straight defeats in their opening 2 matches.
Despite failing to score so far, OM had 30 shots on goal across the first 2 matchdays.
Marseille have claimed maximum points in 13 of their last 19 Ligue 1 matches as hosts.
Ligue 2 champions Troyes are making their first appearance on the road following promotion, and they still suffered 7 defeats when playing away last term.
Troyes head to the Mediterranean coast after drawing their opening 2 games of the season, both played at their own Stade de l’Aube.
