The third stage takes place in Bundesliga under more special conditions. Throughout Germany the weather has cooled significantly in almost all cities reigns a frost of minus 10-12 degrees, which will not make easier the task of the teams. The cold will cause more vigorous boys can run, but the contacts with the ground will not be too pleasant in any case even if the most stadiums have an underground heating lawn…
Hard game in the opening stage for the team from Nurnberg, the opponent is the owner of the title, Dortmund, the fit team, effective, equally as capable at home and away. The results of the games from Nurenberg are slight advantage for the hosts, but in the general economy of the games, the guests have a clear superiority with 29 victories and 17 defeats and 13 draws. A success for hosts could be a surprise, especially since five years was not the case.
Hertha – HANNOVER is the game of two teams with unsatisfactory behaviors (yet), especially after two consecutive defeats hosts begin to take thought. Even hiring new technician, Michael Skibbe is discussed, after some are not very happy regarding the choice, wearing it… unlucky for many teams where he was. Strictly statistically, the game should be at the discretion of the hosts who have not lost at home for 9 years and have a good balance: 10 wins, 5 draws and only one defeat.
One of the best teams in good shape is Schalke, receiving a response from a team unhappy this season, MAINZ. Will be a game on attack, especially from guests who have no other choice but to seek the decision, the defence are not their strong point. We are waiting for the team from Gelsenkirchen, and if the say “winning team does not change” remains valid. The guests benefit by the return of Szalai, starring now on Zidan, which gives courage an offensive play.
