3 pts HANSA ROSTOCK 1.25/1 ( Paddy Power) v Karlsruhe SC Bundesliga 2

A cracker in store here - live on DSF too. KSC sit on top of the league on 60 pts, five ahead of Hansa. KSC coach Edmund Becker believes 63 pts will see them up. After this match they will have four left to play, their next game at home to Unterhaching, a game in which they will no doubt be expecting to get maximum points. KSC have only lost three matches on the road all season - interestingly those defeats have come in their last five away matches and it is significant that Becker has commented that some of his players need freshening up. KSC played like crabs in their last away at TSV 1860 and cannot possibly play so poorly again. Nevertheless, Hansa have only lost one at home all season and while their play has been rather indifferent since the winter pause, a victory here will put them a step further on the ladder to Bundesliga 1. With the crowd behind them ( KSC are bringing a maximum of 1,000) they can come away with the honours here.

Rostock 1 KSC 2 - 3pts
