Saturday Night In Germany: Bundesliga Previews

Comments

With only five more Bundesliga matchdays remaining, the focus is on the race for places in Europe as well as the fight at the bottom to avoid relegation.

Last place Paderborn are all but gone and a trip to play 3rd place Red Bull Leipzig makes the future even bleaker.

16th place Fortuna Düsseldorf have a chance to climb out of the relegation zone, but their opponents – 7th place Hoffenheim – have an eye on the Europa League qualifying spot if they finish 6th.

Mainz sit in 15th, just one point clear of the Relegation Playoff spot (currently occupied by Düsseldorf), so a win at Eintracht Frankfurt would help immensely.

And in other news, Bayern Munich continue to roll; they’ve won 10 in a row and host 5th place Leverkusen who are still in contention for the top four and a spot in the Champions League.
