3 pts FC KOLN + 0.5 Asian Handicap 0.78/1 ( Betfair) v Hansa Rostock Bundesliga 2

During the first half of the season Hansa accrued the longest unbeaten run of the season in German football. And provided the on fire Enrico Kern was in the line up, they were proving the hardest team to topple. Since the winter break however they have been lacking that sparkle. Kern has had some quiet matches, and all of a sudden promotion is anything but a formality. In fact they have only picked up nine points from their eight second half season games. In contrast, the FC appear to be emerging from the doldrums. After playing well in defeat at KSC, they produced an exhibition performance at home to Unherhaching - so much so that the mathematical possibilities of them reaching a promotion place are being openly discussed. Christoph Daum has stated that this match will be a guage to the ability of his team, and they should be supported on the Asians to keep the momentum going.

Rostock 1 Koln 1 + 2.34 pts
