Bavaria before the easter championship – hsv must win

Bavaria before the easter championship - hsv must win

Can the FC bayern munchen already win the 28. Celebrate championship? A win in the fubball bundesliga classic against borussia dortmund and no victory for schalker in the home match against SC freiburg – and the championship trophy will once again go to munich.

In contrast, no final decisions have yet been made in the relegation battle – even though another defeat for hamburger SV against vfb stuttgart has severely dampened the last hopes of the team. The 1. FC koln moved closer to the relegation zone with a win against TSG 1899 hoffenheim, while bruno labbadia is hoping for his first win in the fifth game with vfl wolfsburg against hertha BSC. Bayer leverkusen (against augsburg) and RB leipzig (against hannover 96) meanwhile want to collect points in the fight for international places.

Celebratory mood: it’s been 18 years since FC bayern last won the championship in front of a home crowd. A victory against borussia dortmund – and thus possibly the end of this series – would be entirely to the taste of the record title winner. The 28. Championship on 28. Matchday – it would be the first championship title that the munich team would secure at the allianz arena. "The fans deserve us to win the title at home," said bayern wing forward arjen robben. But the condition is that schalke (2.) against freiburg (14.) does not win.

Fear of defeat: "carrot and stick" is obviously the motto of coach christian titz, who still wants to achieve a miracle with hamburger sv. Walace defied the coach’s instructions, mergim mavraj is not fit – both were given to the U21 by titz. At the same time, the coach talked to many players, praised them and took them bowling for team-building purposes. Whether it will be of any use will be shown in the away game against vfb stuttgart. A win is mandatory. On the other hand, the situation is more relaxed: a victory for schwaben was allowed to make all fears of relegation disappear at vfb.

SUCCESS PRESSURE: four games, no wins: coach bruno labbadia’s record with vfl wolfsburg is anything but good so far. The coach, who has signed on as a saviour, must finally score points if things are to go well for the lower saxons. "We used the break to put pressure on the players and take the pressure off them," said labbadia before the away game against hertha BSC berlin. However, two key players, robin knoche and josuha guilavogui, are in danger of dropping out.

European hopes: bayer 04 leverkusen is currently in a european league spot, but wouldn’t participation in the champions league be even more appealing?? "We have to put everything on the line," said bayer coach heiko herrlich before the home game against FC augsburg, who also still had small hopes of an international starting berth. But the statistics don’t speak for the FCA: the fuggerstadter have not won any of the 13 bundesliga duels against leverkusen – that has never happened in this form in bundesliga history.

Sliding scores: 19:19 and 17:17 – with these two goal ratios, TSG 1899 hoffenheim and the 1. FC koln one of the "best" teams in the second half of the season in terms of both own goals and goals against. And in terms of points scored in the second half of the season – 14 for FC and 13 for TSG – the two teams are on the same level. If it weren’t for the first half of the season and the precarious situation for the team from colonia, which is 17th in the league table. Relying on further experiences of success to retain the class. The duel in the rhein-neckar-arena could therefore be exciting and rich in goals.
