Date: Sunday, 24th February 2019

Magdeburg has had a late wake-up call to their season and is scrambling to dole out wins to climb up from the relegation dogfight. Competition is brimming to the top between the teams in contention for the exit, and as the final stretch approaches, the team has decided to create a safe zone for them, and ensure their participation in the next installment of the competition.

After their terrible run in the league till last December, the squad made a complete turn-around, mainly building off from the momentum they acquired due to the friendlies the management had arranged for them.

Paderborn is desperately trying to get into the third spot, currently occupied by Koln. Just two points separate them from the said position, and if their recent performances are any indication, the top tier teams have really something to worry about.

This game is going to be one of the fiercest battles of all the ones scheduled for the weekend. Either team has a clear objective in mind, and for it to come to fruition, a win is the only way to go about it.
