Friday:


Hamburger vs Frankfurt

Hamburger have pritty strong form and Frankfurt have been very weak in their recent away games. The hosts should win this one.

Hamburger win.


Saturday:


Bayern vs Kaiserslautern

Bayern have outstanding home form and should be able to take all three points from this one at home.

Bayern win.


Dortmund vs Stuttgart

Dortmund have outstanding home form and should have no problems taking all three points from this one.

Dortmund win with 0-1 handicap.
