3 pts VFL WOLFSBURG - 0 Asian Handicap 1.19/1 ( Betfair) v VfB Stuttgart German Cup Semi - Final

The Volkswagen team have home advantage against a team who lie 20 points ahead of them in the Bundesliga. Each side have their major scorer absent. Stuttgart are still without Mario Gomez, while Wolfsburg will have Argentinian Diego Klimowicz missing, a player who's scored 56 goals from 145 club appearances. Wolfsburg coach Klaus Augenthaler is playing down the absence, stating that the club has a strong enough squad to compensate. They are traditionally a hard side to beat at home and you get the feeling that they are more up for this tonight. That's not to say that the visitors are taking the game lightly - it's just that they are already certain of a UEFA Cup place next season, and will be thinking more of a Champion's League place, and will no doubt have that massive encounter against Bayern this coming Saturday on their mind. Wolfsburg should be supported here with the DNB proviso.

Wolfsburg 0 Stuttgart 1 - 3 pts
