3 pts SC FREIBURG Evens ( Paddy Power) v S V Wacker Burghausen Bundesliga 2

Woeful Burghausen travelled up to Rostock at the weekend and managed to come away with a point. It's perhaps best not to be influenced by that result as Hansa have returned from the winter break looking a level below that of themselves in the first half of the season. Burghausen are deserving of their 17 th place in the table and will surely be outclassed by the visitors on Friday night. SCF are only five points off a promotion place, have won seven of their last eight matches, and should take care of a side that have the worst home recored in Bundesliga 2. Interestingly, in an identical scenario of a team pushing for a promotion place travelling away to a team looking likely to go down, Aue travel to Braunschweig on Friday night. Despite also looking a class above their rivals, I've avoided Aue on account of their away form. For a team so high in the league they travel incredibly poorly, losing seven from twelve on the road so far, and it's probably best to steer clear of that game.

Wacker 2 Freiburg 2 - 3pts
