Borussia dortmund can move ahead in the championship race as bayern don’t play until sunday. Hannover 96 seems to be a more than feasible task for the top team. Many other teams are attacking the upper third of the table.
Top team against relegation candidate I: table-topping borussia dortmund receives second-to-last hannover 96 (saturday, 15.30 hrs/sky). At the table leaders, captain marco reus is expected to be ready for action again after he had to miss the return round opener in leipzig at short notice: "he has trained the whole week. He’s doing well," said BVB coach lucien favre. The coach in hannover could no longer heiben after a defeat andre breitenreiter. Club boss martin kind and manager horst heldt held an open discussion about a suitable successor. "I’m disappointed that they didn’t talk to me. I wanted people to talk openly about it," breitenreiter said before the game.
Top team against relegation candidate II: with a home win against FC augsburg (saturday, 15.30 p.M./sky) borussia monchengladbach could set a record that is more than 30 years old. It was the twelfth home win in a row for the entire season. That last succeeded under jupp heynckes. It was not going to be easy for the 15th-placed augsburg team to extend its lead over the relegation zone. FCA has also been waiting for a win in the bundesliga for nine games now.
Looking towards europe: after the narrow defeat at the debut of new coach peter bosz the previous week, the werkself now wants to do better at vfl wolfsburg (saturday, 15.30:00/sky). "We are the chasers, so we must try to win all games," said bosz with an eye on the international starting places. Champions league contender hoffenheim also wants to return to the top third of the table. For that, however, julian nagelsmann’s players need a win at SC freiburg (saturday, 15.30 o’clock/sky). Werder bremen also set itself the goal of europe before the season began. The north germans welcome cup winners eintracht frankfurt on saturday evening (18.30/sky).
Hoping for a turnaround: for twelve games now, the 1.FC nurnberg without a win in the bundesliga. This series is set to end at mainz 05 (saturday, 15 march).30 o’clock/sky). "We’re going there to score points and win a game again after twelve games," said coach michael kollner.
