Welcome to the third Bundesliga Prediction League. Gunnerthru won last season's title thanks to an impressive showing. Can he retain his title? Will MrTweedy return to the top of the table? Or will we see a new champion?
Each week you will have to predict the scorelines of each of the nine (or more, depending on rescheduling) matches taking place in the Bundesliga. A correct result (e.g. you predict Schalke 1-0 Dortmund; the result is 3-0) will get you 1 point while a correct scoreline (i.e. a prediction of Schalke 3-0 Dortmund) earn 3 points. As always, a bonus question will accompany every Matchday; this question must be answered before the start of the first match.
Now we're at the halfway stage, make your Rückrunde predictions - how will the league table look at the end of the season?
The Champions League and Europa League places, 1st-6th. Each team you pick correctly is worth 1 point, if you predict them in exactly the right position it's worth 3 points.
The relegation and playoff places, 16th-18th. Once again, 1 point for a correct team, 3 points if they're in the correct place.
And here are the player predictions. One of these is new and another has been altered, with the aim of providing you with more of a challenge. In addition to this, you can now change one of these predictions during the winter break, before the season resumes:
Top goalscorer: 5 points
Top scoring new signing 5 points http://www.bundesliga.com/en/news/Bundesliga/2015-16-Summer-Transfer-Overview.jsp
Top assistant: 5 points
Goalkeeper with most penalty saves: 5 points
