Berlin (dpa) - Leader of the table RB Leipzig receives on Saturday to the top match of the 6th game day the fifth FC Schalke 04.
Chasing FC Bayern Munich has a supposedly easier task to master at SC Paderborn. Borussia Dortmund must prove against Werder Bremen, that the mentality debate is conducted wrongly.
GOOD FRIENDS: Adi Hütter traveled to Berlin with a smile. The coach of Eintracht Frankfurt meets in the game at Aufsteiger Union on Friday evening (20.30 / DAZN) on two old friends. Berlin coach «Urs Fischer I know well from Switzerland. He's a great guy, "said the Austrian. "And I know assistant coach Markus Hoffmann even better. He lives a mile from my home. We are friends. "Hütter and his team tend not to distribute gifts.
TOP GAME: Julian Nagelsmann at RB Leipzig and David Wagner at Schalke 04 have only been in office for a few months and have moved a lot - on Saturday (15.30 / Sky) meet the leader and the fifth of the table in direct duel each other. "You notice that Schalke works a lot, is significantly more active in possession of the ball. They have a clear plan, a very attractive and successful style of play. That's typical Dave Wagner, what you see there, "Nagelsmann said.
MENTALITY: At Borussia Dortmund, the week was dominated by a mentality debate that had left Captain Marco Reus "down on his balls" after the victory at Eintracht Frankfurt. "We are very early in the season. But when I follow the news, I feel like we're at the end of the season, missed all goals and played a shitty season, "said BVB manager Michael Zorc. His club had neither a mentality nor a quality problem. In the match against Werder Bremen on Saturday evening (18.30 / Sky) Reus and his colleagues can prove that.
DAVID AGAINST GOLIATH: The small SC Paderborn, who has not yet won the league's only team this season, receives the big FC Bayern München on Saturday (15.30 / Sky). «The table situation is known. The gravity of the task is clear. But it's about getting three points, "said coach Steffen Baumgart. A bad sign for the climber: The Munich are in a good mood, Bayern coach Niko Kovac praised on Thursday the positive team spirit. "We're seeing that in the Inner Circle, too, the mood is good," he said. It remains exciting whether Bayern President Uli Hoeneß keeps to his own statements, with holding back remarks about the DFB goalkeeper dispute.
PRESIDENT: Fritz Keller will experience the Bundesliga weekend for the first time as elected President of the German Football Association - whether in or in which stadium, that's not yet known. So far, the then former head of SC Freiburg kept it of course with his home club from the Breisgau, which starts on Sunday (15.30 / Sky) at Fortuna Dusseldorf. As the highest DFB representative of the 62-year-old should henceforth also be committed to a certain neutrality.
CELLAR DUELL: Although Hertha BSC celebrated the liberating first win of the season last weekend, the Berliners are still stuck in the table cellar. At the end of the game day on Sunday (18.00 clock / Sky) in the also weakly started 1. FC Cologne, the Hertha therefore can not afford a defeat. "You realize that we do not want to rest on the win. We know in which areas we need to improve, »said Berlin coach Ante Covic.
