FC Schalke 04 vs FC Bayern München

Fresh from their 6-0 win over SV Werder Bremen which confirmed FC Bayern München had no nerves on opening night, Carlo Ancelotti takes his team for his first away fixture in the Bundesliga. The Friday night lights will once again be shining on the record champions when they head to FC Schalke 04.

The Royal Blues will not be out to give Bayern and former goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, who was recently named Germany's new captain, a warm welcome, though, since they need to bounce straight back from a defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt on the opening day of the season.

Bayer 04 Leverkusen vs Hamburger SV

On Saturday, USMNT international Bobby Wood gets the opportunity to prove his Matchday 1 Goal of the Week was no fluke and that there are many more to come when Hamburger SV travel to Bayer 04 Leverkusen, who are licking their wounds after an opening day defeat at Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Die Werkself could be able to welcome Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez back into their side for the first time this season, though, with the Mexican expected to be fit to take his season's bow at the BayArena.

RB Leipzig vs Borussia Dortmund

The action does not end there, though, with RB Leipzig's Red Bull Arena seeing its first sight of Bundesliga action on Saturday evening, and what a cracker it should be with none other than Borussia Dortmund their first guests.
