FSV Frankfurt - Hertha BSC Berlin
Having both started their 2012/13 campaigns with draws on Matchday 1, FSV Frankfurt and Hertha BSC are looking to get their seasons up and running with a victory. Historically speaking, the odds are in favour of the promotion-chasing visitors, who have taken three points back to the capital from each of their last two encounters here.
Hertha are determined to return to the Bundesliga at the first attempt after losing the relegation play-off at the end of last season. Jos Luhukay's men will need to improve their finishing to have any chance of realising their hopes, though, after squandering several good chances last week.
Union Berlin - Eintracht Braunschweig
Braunschweig surprised many people's favourites for promotion Köln with a thoroughly deserved 1-0 victory on Matchday 1. They appear to have carried last season's form, which earned them a respectable eighth-place finish, into the new campaign and are out to improve on that position, although hopes of top-flight football are still a long way off.
Union Berlin will be happy to shut up shop on Sunday after throwing away a two-goal lead at Kaiserslautern last time out to finish 3-3.
Jahn Regensburg Vs MSV Duisburg
Promoted outfit Regensburg put up a good fight against 1860 Munich last week and were unlucky to lose 1-0. They will not be the walkover many people expect and will be an even tougher prospect in front of their own fans.
Meanwhile, Duisburg come into the match on the back of a 4-1 hammering against another newcomer, Aalen, on Matchday 1. They appear to still have plenty of work to do, especially in defence, as their back line was pulled out of shape all too easily in that match.
