2 pts UNDER 2.5 GOALS 4/5 ( Paddy Power) Eintracht Braunschweig v FC Koln Bundesliga 2

DSF showed the highlights of Cologne's home match against Carl Zeiss Jena and anyone with a liking for the club can only have been disappointed, despite the victory. In view of the opposition, Cologne created only a few real chances, and it was only a penalty decision that saved them from embarrassment. The Helmes saga still continues. A large banner looked out across the stadium with the words ( roughly translated) ' Helmes, piss off and never come back you two faced pig '. The player himself was a spectator at the match, and Daum was questioned about the situation in the post match press conference. Am confident that Friday's match will be a low scoring affair and the under 2.5 is the most sensible option.

EB 0 Koln 1 +1.6pts

3 pts win HANNOVER 96 11/10 ( generally available) v Vfl Wolfsburg Bundesliga 1

The home side are in fine heart at present following a poor spell in the first half of the season, and can complete the double over their rivals following a 2-1 victory at the Volkswagen stadium in August. They performed with great credit in their defeat away at Bremen and posed serious problems for the home side during the first half, and in the early stages of the second. The team includes the emerging star Jan Rosenthal, their last two performances' have seen them destroy their opponents, and they represent terrific value against rivals who are not the safe, reliable mid-div side of a few seasons back.
