An interesting constellation of teams ahead. While Dortmund will meet the local team Koln in a match not so easy, the others: Bayern, Schalke, Mönchengladbach evolve all at home and hope. What hopes and relegation threatened teams you will find below.
The first game of the round, Friday night brings face to face Wolfsburg and Hamburg. The word in order at Wolsburg is the qualification for the European Cups, the 4-5 points separating these places are recoverable, especially since the band’s latest developments Felix Magath has found effective. Hamburg wants to come out lastly from the mess which included about three stages and this can only help a success, be it a draw. The balance between the two is very interesting: 10 wins for Wolfsburg, 10 draws and 9 wins for Hamburg.
Bayern and Hannover are opening the series of games from Saturday and hosts that no longer can afford any wrong step will do everything to win. Bayern has a clear balance in favor: 28 victories vs. 8 tie and 9 defeats, goal difference: 118-49.
The game between Freiburg and Kaiserslautern will show if the return of the hosts is in time and if the chances of avoiding relegation are real, on the other hand is therefore to guest coach dismissal and appointment of former Krasimir Balakov, who was at Hajduk Split. Commentators estimate that this measure was unfounded and inappropriate especially as time steps before the final eight. Home, Freiburg has not lost to guests about seven years. In the last four stages, the hosts made 8 points and while the guests got in the last seven games just two points.
Mönchengladbach – Hoffenheim is interesting from several points of view. Guests follow a path not too plentiful even with the new coach Markus Babbel, from where we could conclude that Stanislawski coach fired a few weeks ago was the main culprit of the current state of the team. Following the last day he was fired and manager Ernst Tanner. Results of both meetings is however very interesting. Only seven games so far and one success for hosts, Hoffenheim winning two “draws” and four wins.
