Bayern have been one of the fastest started in Europe's top five leagues and they will be looking to continue that trend at home to Hoffenheim. If they score first at the Allianz Arena, it will be the eighth successive league game in which they have done so.
And for good measure, Bayern have opened the scoring in all five cup ties too including all three Champions League games. Hoffenheim have their hands full trying to stop the defending champions from opening the scoring in Munich.
The visitors have already conceded the first goal in five of their eight games and they have failed to open the scoring in their last three league games. The odds of Bayern scoring first offers little value, but adding it to a HT/FT Bayern double boost potential returns. William Hill have odds of 8/13 for Bayern to score first and to win the game after leading at half-time
Nothing in football is guaranteed, but the chances of both Cologne and Bayer Leverkusen scoring this weekend are pretty high. Cologne can move to within a point of their visitors this weekend with a win, but victories for Cologne in this fixture have been hard to come by in the last couple of seasons.
Leverkusen have won the last three meetings by an aggregate 10-1 and they will be favourites with many of the leading betting sites to make it four straight wins. Patrick Schick's consolation goal in a 5-1 drubbing at home to Bayern last week, maintained Leverkusen's record of scoring in every league game this season.
Relegated Werder Bremen were the last team to stop Leverkusen from scoring back in May, and with BTTS landing in seven of Cologne's eight Bundesliga games, it's fair to assume both goalkeepers will be picking the ball out of their respective nets. Bet365 are offering odds of 5/2 for both sides to score in the first half.
