Contradictory evolutions characterized the meeting between the combatants Koln – Freiburg, in the 18 games, the hosts winning eight wins, five games ending with the victory that tied the visiting team. Koln depends on Podolski, if he score it can get a good result. Freiburg depends on… itself, although scored 20 goals they misses a lot, the former “bomber” Cisse is out of form last season. What is spicy is that the director Volker Finke is sporting the hosts, who for 16 years were the “soul” of Breisgau team.
Lastly an apparently unequal match between the “red lantern”, Augsburg, and the third class, Monchengladbach, playing for the first time, it is unlikely that the hosts to get the necessary points to leaving the last place. Augsburg’s technician was in the years 2007-2009 the Monchengladbach coach. An interesting situation, which did not, of course, no influence on the game.
Saturday in the game without competition meet two “European”, Hannover and Leverkusen, their characteristic confrontation is abundant of draw results, exactly one third. Hannover has not convinced the latest developments and to make the game had problems at home, as seen especially in the match against Hamburg. Leverkusen has a mind of accidents, including Adler, Barnett, Augusto, Toprak, but will seek to consolidate its position in the first third of the ranking.
Sunday are held the meetings Dortmund – Kaiserslautern and Stuttgart – Bayern. The champion seriously “injured” after the removal of… Europe will seek to alleviate distress in the championship; the team is exactly Betzenberg suitable opponent. BVB has never lost at home in front of the “red devils” for 11 years, has a positive net balance managing to guests a 5-0 last season! In “southern derby”, Bruno’s team will have a mission very hard in front of Bayern, which over the years has won 51 times (in 88 games) and scored the goal “Swabians” 174 goals! The hosts have not won at home for four years but gave always many goals. In the previous season: 3-5 and 1-2.
