In the 2. Bundesliga to this point it has been Fortuna Dusseldorf who have been the strongest team. They are sponsored by sports betting site Tipbet and have made a big improvement in last season when they finished 11th place. In their last meeting they saw off Sandhausen 2-1 to go top of the division, which continued their excellent first four performances. They will be happy heading into the two-week international break.

Eintracht Braunschweig finished third last season and were unfortunate not to reach the Bundesliga. They would have been promoted if they had beaten Wolfsburg over two legs. They will expect to be up towards the top of table again this season though. They are ninth currently however, and have won just once. A win here would see them up to at least fifth.

Braunschweig, after their Fortuna stalemate, were then victorious over Heidenheim. They also drew with Erzgebirge Aue and are therefore the only club outside of the top four to remain unbeaten. They will need to improve their goalscoring though if they are to make more of an impact on the 2. Bundesliga league table.

Their opponents Kaiserslautern have made a very poor start to their season. In 17th place as it stands, they have a single point and are in the relegation places to the 3. Bundesliga. Their campaign began by losing by three goals to Nurnberg and they then drew with Darmstadt 98 before playing Fortuna Dusseldorf. A win on Monday night would take them clear of the relegation zone two weeks before their next match.
