most of the business players and stop making their way home for a well mid-season break before still fighting it out for the final 6 points on match day 17 and bring the 1st half the season to a close. look face spending the break in the boston 2 if they fail to win against then put up or not even worse off they will finish being in the relegation zone regardless of the result. and will be racking up a crazy campaign so far leipsic left it late as they stormed to the bundesliga summit and what's been the toughest title race in a decade. welcome to the bundesliga here on the w. nick mechanic line and joining me in the studio for the breakdown of all things the german football to seasoned members of this league team welcome to the final show
of the pledge to be an answer to my left at mccambridge thank you dixon very festive almost christmas it's good to have you both hit let's kick off in just a little who welcomed a team who have taken to the bundesliga like a duck to water after a rough start to their maiden topflight campaign they buckle down and find them some found themselves closer to the european places in the relegation zone heading into the final match day. last season. achieving new boys in the division in the round that has been the story of. still it was the one who drew 1st blood in the 38th minute difference was helped along by oliver fink and groovin heading how much. of the season. one from the very top drawer. spurs go. get. the new one came out on the front foot after the break though just 3 minutes after the. star the guests were level parkinson reacted
quickest to punish a sloppy clearance for much of your cement and give the travelling supporters something to cheer about. just past the hour but i'm today she was denied by stephan who stopped this rebound before just rudolph finally managed to clear that . when you were knocking on the door of a 2nd away when overseas but those hopes were dashed by every tommy in the 90th minute when he stole all 3 points for 40 i substitute tommy with a speculative effort who would you stop progress cabbage off guard and bounced in off the post. agazzi and to the 1st half of the season for the visitors crucial relegation battle points for the hopes. to warm the school as just to go finally put an end to their 6 game run in the city. despite the defeats 20
points in 17 games is a good hole and what a season has been let's start with you tom that was your report tell us what you think it will i mean like you said historic season anyway for a new one in the bundesliga their 1st ever season in the top flight and there have been some fantastic highlights so far you know they're flying higher than they expected to be at this stage in the season. home victory of course a very historic moment against bruce your dog and then of course they'd be had to berlin in the 1st leg of the darby this season they then of course beat the then table lead is glad back home so you know doubtless plenty of fun has been had this season. a lot of us have a soft spot for your new team the business league what's been your own moment so far well tom touched on a few of them there but i think if you asked any any on the stand what the best moment was it would have to be one nil victory of a head to berlin on the 2nd of november absolute seems an incredible atmosphere the l.t. 1st of all that they can actually see their f.l. . each of which actually almost struck him with his own old. behind the ground they
try to get them off the pitch to get the game singed and just an absolutely fantastic victory one. can see from sebastopol to a living legend. and of course it is the 1st east meets west indies league it all been just an incredible occasion for german football and i think actually no matter what happens to anyone in the 2nd half of the season that will live long in the memory of all of their fans it's i mean they've made memories enough so far and you know we've seen stickers start being spread around burley including when you're on the capital city champions so you know they're going to be perfectly happy with that wherever happened in the rest of the season but i don't mean to dampen the mood there's only 5 points between them and the team they lost against today does a lot for in the relegation playoff spots the clubs on the 5 survival right yeah of course definitely and look like i mentioned all of those highlights that they've had so far in the season they've been at home so really one thing that they do need to work on the 2nd half of the season is their away form but if they can stay as strong as they have been at home and pick up a few extra points on the road then i think they're going to be ok remember in the table at the moment let's say 5 points above the relegation zone and crucially one
point above have to but we have to balance our their fans are very happy taking that into christmas too we're going to move on now sunday's 2nd match so frankfurt in action the eagles have claimed just one point in the bundesliga since beating by at the beginning of november bottom of the table part of them seem just right but seemed just the right remedy for their plight. the last one just league a match of 2019. coach andy which was frankfurt have been banged up by a heavy schedule meanwhile stephan baumgartner patter born want to keep the hope of leaving the drop zone and that got off to a strong start. to be trying his luck from distance in the 9th minute and he hit the target frankfurt keeper felix speed could only watch it go in the last place where having a better game and they made it to neil shortly before the break defender sebastian heading home a free kick patter aborning command out after. how do you work as
a man tried to erase the deficit after the restart but the most they could manage was a consolation goal from pass just 21 the final score patter born with their 3rd win of the season and the newly promoted team haven't thrown in the towel just yet. with all the games to 2019 done and dusted let's have a look at the table lives in our top for the next 4 weeks followed by one of the sub prize packages of the season and as you can see it's incredibly tight just 14 points separate leipzig and outs bergin 10th one of these teams will be 4 there's plenty of work still to be done what a relegation battle for all the sides in the possible off now for the 1st time since 2009 we have a team other than byron dorgan at the top of the table at mid-season the club and the company behind it have not shied away from the fact they want a title sooner rather than later in life sig is their season and possibly their best chance as well i think absolutely 2 points clear at the top and crucially i
think for put points clear or buy in which is sort of the yardstick any potential champion is actually measuring themselves against your spine or in 3rd but they are the team that everybody needs to know you know that they need to finish ahead of if they want to win that the bundesliga more goals than anybody 2nd best offense in the league and in my opinion it got the best coach somebody that can change a game from apps you know where we saw that last week it gets pretty dortmund and also of course he scored 18 goals in 17 games and i think they can and may win the league if he stays fit you mentioned the coach that's who i want to hear from now this is what i had to say after saturday's game and it's good for us of confidence it's always good to start the 2nd half of the season having to leave position in the league we have a lot of situation where we can improve and i'm looking forward to improve my team and get better and playing nearly also a good 2nd half a season like we did in the 1st set of. you know roughhousing who was successful in his 1st seasons at the club but you cannot be
a different caliber was he the missing link all along you know what i mean was he brought quite a bit of fresh energy into lots of he has of course bill on housing whose work i think a couple of things that are really important a lot to so far this season ed touched on one is tactical versatility he's able to you know change the system within the game to react to different conditions as we saw against dortmund and he also of course has been getting the best out of his players so anybody who saw how surge cannot be developed under him hoffenheim you know understands why team is doing so well this season and those 2 things are going to be crucial once again forward they are very successful but will that be there or will they be the victim of their own success is possible i mean i think it's very likely that novels now will move on some point if he does win when the blues they would like to see a lot talk of him maybe going to buy on sunday but i actually think he'd leave the league you know if you've already won the british leader with one of the underdogs it's almost a bit of a you know a lead balloon if you can just take over the team expected to win every season but
i think you know possibly the loser but i think it's take that if they won the league this year that be willing to lose the coach i think i would have to south and think there's too much reason for not was meant to go because you know leipzig is one of the most exciting places to be in sporting terms if you will a young manager who's developing something new in german i mean european football at the moment and i was mine is very young he's got a long career ahead of him so i think you know they obviously love him in life see . for him i see no reason to hurry out of their german coaches are in high demand we've seen flop and some of the german coaches in the u.k. but dion quite possibly want to have those men as a future coach but that is the future let's talk about the present credit where it is dubai and of had a horrible 1st half of the season by their standards but he's turned things around . he'll be in charge until the end of the season as the couple have announced on sunday after being down and out are they back in the running on. absolutely back in the now that you can rule out the team that's when the last 7 blunders league
titles in a row they're only 4 points off the top they're in 3rd place it's been a disastrous season by blind standards but not by most club standards and we've seen the top of the league changed so much that it was slow bicycle race they'll be a lot of twists and turns still to go and i think one of the a very good chance of winning this but it's the time direction if this happens quite often the coach is brought in he has a good run he's told he's allowed to stay for long and there's a dip in form and he's gone what is hands you flex for was going to i mean he said he they're going to be going to be down to the end of the season now and collins from a good came out and said that the club have been more than satisfied with his work so far so if it continues to you know produce the results that by munich astroid strive to achieve then i see no reason why you shouldn't stay a little bit longer he does lack a little bit of experience and obviously lets you know make no bones about it he's in the most high stakes job in german football he's going to get fired. there are no lights a. club to say i want to summon the likes of pep guardiola or some along those
lines but i don't see them getting anyone like that but there are 17 days to go we'll see how does it by munich that's almost all from us here on the bonus league but before we go we have an announcement to make after 4 years of be the highlights and talking points from germany's top flight this will be the last ever the bundesliga show in generally january you'll find a program in this timeslot called sports life and a revamped version of kickoff life will be bringing sports and football stories from around the globe you will see it again though in d.w. news and formats and of course you can catch up on the good news on our website and social media channels you can see at the bottom of your screen i want to thank you all here and those who work for us in the last 4 years and of course you who watched us for the last time on the bundle you go from all of us here in berlin thank you and goodbye thats it. we did it. was another.
