WTW Bundesliga round six live - Sept 24 to 26

What you need to know ahead of Greuther Fürth vs Bayern and BuLi MD 6 games

September 23, 2021 By Michelle Bonsu
Bayern have, as expected, now seized top spot - which doesn't bode well for upcoming hosts Greuther Fürth. Here's all you need to know ahead of MD 6 in the 2021/22 Bundesliga season.

Last round saw goals, goals, and more goals, with Bayern again showing the gulf in class between them and many of their opponents as they cruised to a comfortable win. However, Wolfsburg are still keen on keeping pace, albeit they did drop points for the first time this season, meaning that they weren't able to leap-frog Bayern back into first.

Meanwhile, Dortmund have quietly crept up the table and will be looking to possibly break into the top two with a win in this season's first installment of the Borussen Derby.

Here's all you need to know ahead of matchday six.

Bundesliga games you won't want to miss on matchday six

Greuther Fürth vs Bayern München: Given that they're sitting in 18th place, with just one point earned from their first five games, it's safe to say that it will very likely be a long evening for Greuther Fürth, who haven't beaten die Roten in nearly 60 years (since 1964). Can we expect Bayern to take mercy on the minnows? Of course not. That's not the Bayern way, and that was on full display with the way they absolutely crushed Bochum 7-0 in their last match. American international Julian Green will be desperate to get one over on the side that jettisoned him, but realistically, Stefan Lietl's men will simply have to do their very best to keep the score-line as respectable as possible. 

Bayer Leverkusen vs Mainz: An interesting battle between these two teams could be on the cards. Both presently sit on ten points, but it's the hosts who occupy fourth place and that last potential Champions League berth due to their superior goal difference. Leverkusen, however, are facing a growing injury list, and will hope that Czech striker Patrik Schick will be able to score in what is his fifth consecutive game. 

RB Leipzig vs Hertha Berlin: Things haven't gone so swimmingly for new coach Jesse Marsch, and the American tactician will be under pressure to prevent die Roten Bullen from sliding further down the table. However, that may be a lot easier said than done, as their upcoming visitors, Hertha, have been on a kick recently. Although they lost their first three games, they've now put together back to back victories, which has helped them rise into ninth place. Leipzig, on the other hand, sit in 12th, with just one win so far this season.

Borussia M'gladbach vs Borussia Dortmund: The latest iteration of the Borussen Derby will be on display this Saturday, and what a drastically contrasting season it's been for both Gladbach and Dortmund. The hosts come into this game sitting in 16th place, with just one win so far, while the visitors are in third, and looking to keep up pressure on league leaders Bayern as well as Wolfsburg. With Norwegian striker Erling Haaland again in strong form, it could be a really difficult day for Gladbach, unless if they can take advantage of Dortmund's significant absentee list. 

Hoffenheim vs Wolfsburg: With Bayern pretty much guaranteed all three points from their match on Friday, the onus will be on Wolfsburg to pick up a win if they want to continue keeping pace with the league leaders. After dropping points for the first time this season during a 1-1 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt, which thus ended their perfect streak, the visitors will be keen on taking advantage of a Hoffenheim side who have struggled to reach the same levels they did last season.
