Ready? Under way in two hours!

Green, green grass

The pitch at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim's WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena looks immaculate as ever, but can die Kraichgauer break their six-match winless streak in all competitions when Borussia Dortmund come to town later tonight?

Looking good

Autographs all round

I think we can guess who was Bayern's centre of attention...

An omen?

"Quick fact: Jürgen Klopp lost his first game as BVB coach to Hoffenheim. Thomas Tuchel could suffer the same fate..."

Leverkusen live!

Roger Schmidt's side are looking to bounce back from three consecutive Bundesliga defeats.

Good numbers!

Augsburg are obviously confident ahead of tonight's clash in Mönchengladbach.

Chilling in the capital

Hertha duo Salomon Kalou and Alexander Baumjohann are celebrating last night's win over Köln.

Licking their wounds

Training time

Bremen, who lost 2-1 in Darmstadt last night, are also hard at work this morning.

A decent record indeed...

Superstars preparing

Bayern's huge clash with Wolfsburg at the Allianz Arena is drawing closer. Why not have a look at this handy infographic to get you in the mood?

Rain, rain, go away

"English weather in the English week of Bundesliga football," tweets Leverkusen star Hakan Calhanoglu, looking snug and warm in his car.

Dortmund press conference

"Nuri Sahin has suffered a slight setback. He'll probably have to do another stage [of his rehabilitation]," explains BVB coach Thomas Tuchel in the tweet below.

Sven Bender and Marco Reus are available again, but Neven Subotic not quite yet.

Schalke press conference

Andre Breitenreiter is next up to face the press.

German lessons

Mainz star Jairo Samperio is hard at work off the pitch...

Confident Wolves

How will they go against Bayern this evening?

Hoffenheim press conference

Hoffenheim coach Markus Gisdol has been facing the press ahead of his side's clash with Dortmund tomorrow. "We know all about how well Dortmund are doing. They're the best team in Germany at the moment," he said.

Gladbach press conference

There's been plenty of interesting chat to emerge from the Borussia Park this afternoon at Andre Schubert's first press conference as Gladbach coach alongside sporting director Max Eberl.

Leverkusen press conference

"Mainz's good start to the season hasn't come from nowhere. It'll be a tough test tomorrow," says Leverkusen coach Roger Schmidt.

Weinzierl the veteran

Following Lucien Favre's decision to resign from his post at Borussia Mönchengladbach, FC Augsburg's Markus Weinzierl is now the longest-serving head coach of all his Bundesliga contemporaries. The 40-year-old, who took charge of Augsburg in summer 2012, takes his side to Mönchengladbach on Wednesday and believes the rock-bottom Foals will benefit from the fresh ideas of interim coach Andre Schubert. "He's a good guy," Weinzierl said. "It's unusual for a team to change coaches two days before a game, but we're concentrating on ourselves. An early goal would do us good, but that's always the case. We're up against a tough side."

"Time has flown by. It's a surprise that I'm already the current Bundesliga's longest-serving coach."

HSV ready to rock

With only back-up goalkeeper Andreas Hirzel, defender Ronny Marcos and Philipp Müller missing, Hamburger SV are pretty much at full strength for their trip to Ingolstadt. Now to impressing your friends. Hamburg, who are enjoying their best start to a season in five years, have played the most Bundesliga games in history (1,769), with Ingolstadt taking part in the fewest (five). How about that for a stat?!

Lilies in the spotlight

SV Darmstadt 98 have taken to Twitter to remind us that they'll be playing "under floodlights against SV Werder Bremen" tonight. Until Saturday's 3-0 defeat to FC Bayern, the Lilies had gone 14 competitive matches unbeaten at the Merck-Stadion am Böllenfalltor.

Eagles on the road

Eintracht Frankfurt will have a healthy backing when they take on FC Schalke 04 at the Veltins Arena tomorrow. Wonder how many of the travelling fans have had to take the day off work...?

Question time

Bayer 04 Leverkusen head coach takes to the stage at 13:00 CEST ahead of tomorrow's game against 1. FSV Mainz 05. Die Werkself have lost their last three Bundesliga games in a row, remember...

Billy Goats in their stride

1. FC Köln face Hertha Berlin away this evening on the back of their best start to a Bundesliga season for 26 years (W3, D1, L1).

Ingolstadt on a high

Bremen's loss was Ingolstadt's gain as die Schanzer became the first promoted club in Bundesliga history to win their first three away games of the season. Ralph Hasenhüttl's men host Hamburger SV tonight, albeit still chasing their first home win of the campaign following defeat to Borussia Dortmund and a goalless draw with VfL Wolfsburg.

Tonight it's about die Schanzer winning at home. Dinos? 2015 is our year! Die Schanzer are writing a new chapter.

Bargfrede suspended

SV Werder Bremen will be without Philipp Bargfrede for tonight's trip to Darmstadt. The 26-year-old midfielder has been handed a three-match ban following his red card in the 1-0 defeat to FC Ingolstadt 04 on Matchday 5.

Recharging the batteries

The FC Schalke 04 players have been treated to a day off ahead of tomorrow's clash with Eintracht Frankfurt. The Royal Blues were pushed to the limit by VfB Stuttgart on Sunday, scraping a 1-0 win.

Promising run

It is not often you say this about one of FC Bayern's opponents, but Wolfsburg are chasing their third win on the bounce against the champions after recording victories on Matchday 18 last term and in the 2015 Supercup. No wonder they are so excited...

Oktoberfest season

It's that time of year again when millions of locals and tourists come together to celebrate the Bavarian capital's much-loved tipple of choice, but that does not mean the Bayern players will be labouring with a hangover against VfL Wolfsburg tonight. The opposite is in fact true, judging by their Oktoberfest record...
