3 pts ALAMENNIA AACHEN 1.52/1 ( Betfair) v Hertha Berlin Bundesliga 1

Fontzeck's men must be supported here. After looking as though they were going to climb out of trouble they now find themselves sitting in a precarious position. Though only five points adrift of Hertha, there are eight places between them and the visitors, who already have one hand on the safety ladder. Aachen have had some tricky games lately and apart from their home defeat by BVB, they have not performed any worse than expected. Hertha have a woeful away record, winning just twice on the road. Their current form is just as dire - they've picked up just five points in their last ten games. Aachen appeal strongly here and the outright victory is fairly priced.

3 pts HAMBURG SV + 0.5 & +1 Asian Handicap 1.05/1 ( Generally available) v Bayern Munich Bundesliga 1

This North/South encounter is arguably the biggest fixture in German football. We have seen over and over again this season that there is nothing to be too fearful of when playing this present Bayern side, and Huub Stevens side travel south having won six of their last ten matches and with more fit players available than has been the case all season - in contrast to the teams that Thomas Doll was forced to field, with sometimes as many as seven first team regulars missing. However, they are still threatened by relegation and need a couple of more points to breath easily. In what is sure to be a fiercely competitive game, HSV are worth support on the Asians.
