We said: Wolfsburg 1-1 Werder Bremen
We do not expect to see a classic between these sides on Saturday, with Wolfsburg settling into life under a new manager and Werder re-establishing themselves at this level.
As such, a share of the spoils feels likely, with both managers potentially content to stay unbeaten ahead of a long campaign.
