Hamburger SV - Werder Bremen
Earlier this season, Joe Zinnbauer and Victor Skripnik were coaching against each other in the meeting between Hamburg and Werder's second teams. Since then, they've gone on to take over the first teams and galvanise their club's fortunes.
That said, the Nordderby still sees two of the bottom three meet - far away from the comparatively dizzy heights when Hamburg played Werder in the UEFA Cup Semi Finals just five years ago. Werder have the momentum since Skripnik took over but Hamburg have the ability to cause their northern rivals problems. It's probably best to bank on goals on Sunday though with +3.5 at 3.05
VfB Stuttgart - FC Augsburg
The Bundesliga weekend finishes off with a Swabian derby and it's a special game for Stuttgart coach Armin Veh having both coached and played for Augsburg. How he must long for their sturdy position in mid-table as his underperforming Stuttgart side languish in the bottom three.
Markus Weinzierl's Augsburg may have won one and lost the other five of their away games this season but such is the leakiness of Stuttgart's defence, the worst in the division, they may just sneak a result on Sunday, at 2.85
