2 pts HANNOVER 96 2.15/1 ( Betfair) v Eintracht Frankfurt Bundesliga 1

Hannover travel to the Commerzbank-Arena looking to increase their prospects of playing in Europe next season. They play attractive, passing football, and are an impressive sight going forward. Only Schalke, Stuttgart and Bremen, have picked up more points on their travels this season - Hannover having won 50% of their games. In contrast the struggling home side are looking like serious relegation material. Though by all reports they performed better than the scoreline suggests in their away defeat to HSV, they have the worst home recored in Bundesliga 1, picking up just 11 points from a possible 33. They are there for the taking today.

Frankfurt 2 Hannover 0 - 2pts

3 pts VFL WOLFSBURG Evens ( Betfair) v Borussia Monchengladbach Bundesliga 1

The Volkswagen sponsored team are in 12th place, but only five points ahead of today's bottom placed rivals. To tell the truth, there is too many teams involved in this relegation struggle who are supposedly too good to go down. The visitors have an appalling record on their travels this season, losing nine of their twelve games, and picking up only five points. Wolfsburg have too been struggling this term - however, they have performed with credit in their last four games - all tough matches, against Leverkusen, Schalke, Hannover and Bayern. A similar showing will be suffice for them to win here in a fixture they've won on five of the last six occasions.

Wolfsburg 1 Gladbach 0 + 3pts
