The most fascinating league this season has huge matches today and tomorrow with huge implications.
Three top clubs meet up today. Bayern meet Leverkusen, Wolfsburg encounters Dortmund, and Hertha tangle with FC Cologne.
Tomorrow another top club Stuttgart takes on Schalke.
Five points separate six clubs. Wolfsburg nosed ahead of Bayern in goal differential. Hertha and Stuttgart round up the top four. Borussia and Hamburg are leaning on them hard.
Wolfsburg is suffering a slump in form at the worst possible time in the season.
They have had to deal Felix Magath's rather tastelessly timed decision to announce his departure from the team at the end of the season to coach Schalke. A big distraction which might have led to their embarrassing 1-4 loss all at the hands or rather legs of Mario Gomez.
Borussia brings its seven game winning streak to VW Arena. The good news for the Wolves is that they are impregnable at home. Their big men, Grafite and Edin Dzeko combined have scored 43 goals. So offensive output should not be a problem. More tellingly, Juergen Klopp has never won against Felix Magath.
