Talking points ahead of matchday eight

Bayern to get back to winning ways and regain control of league table?

Bayern Munich were dealt a surprise setback as they lost 2-1 to Hoffenheim at home just before the international break, and now die Roten have slipped to third in the table. Niko Kovac's side will be looking to get back on track quickly and regain control of the league table before returning to Champions League action next week. They're facing fellow Bavarian side Augsburg in a derby so there'll be more incentive

Can Dortmund come back recharged after the international break? Aninteresting clash awaits in the Borussen derby against Gladbach...

Meanwhile, Dortmund have hit a bad patch of form. Die Schwarzgelben have drawn their last three games and now find themselves in eighth spot. All isn't lost, though. The league table is quite congested, with just a four point gap between the middle places and Borussia Moenchengladbach, who have now clawed their way to the top thanks to a sudden resurgence of form that has seen them win four on the trot. An interesting showdown awaits as they lock horns with Dortmund in the Borussen
