Freiburg – Burnley

– Punch above their weight

– Comparatively modest resources in the top division

– Part of the league furniture over the past decade

-Enjoying very good seasons when they ground to a halt

Hoffenheim – Leicester

– Enjoyed impressive rises from lower levels with the help of investment.

-Nobody begrudges their success and pretty much permanent position towards the top of the table

Cologne – Newcastle

Clubs with vast fanbases and enormous stadiums

– Play integral roles in their respective cities.

– Success proved elusive of late

– Recent seasons spent in the lower half of the table and even the second division

Union Berlin – Sheffield United

-Everybody predicted a relegation struggle for both in August

– Made a mockery of the pundits, enjoying terrific campaigns no one saw coming

Eintracht Frankfurt – Arsenal

– Grand old teams with large supporter bases and lots of impressive history

– Eintracht finished 7th last season and wanted to kick on – instead they’re 12th and looking over their shoulder

– Arsenal are ninth at the moment and have dropped too many points

Hertha Berlin – West Ham

-Underachieving clubs from the capital city who play their matches in cavernous former Olympic stadiums where the fans are miles from the pitch

– Seems to be constant setbacks and disappointments, consigning them to lower-half mediocrity with a whiff of relegation danger

Augsburg – Southampton/Brighton

-Two clubs that are inoffensive to pretty much everyone – except Southampton to Portsmouth fans and Brighton to Palace –

– Become part of the furniture in their top divisions in recent seasons

– Occasionally embarking on a cup run

– Had slight worries of going doing throughout the season

Mainz – Watford/Crystal Palace

– Overshadowed by larger nearby clubs 

-Very much established in the top flight

– Like Watford, need to galvanise themselves when action returns or face a  relegation scrap

Fortuna Dusseldorf – Bournemouth

-Embarked on a rise through the divisions during the 21st century

– Both are desperate to cling on to top flight football

– In relegation danger after seasons of struggle

– Could struggle to return to top level football if they go down

Werder Bremen – Aston Villa

-Rich heritage, history and tradition who have enjoyed sporadic periods of high success in the past

– Big stadiums and sizeable fanbases count for precious little as they fight to avoid relegation

– Not too big to go down and nee instant transformation of fortunes when action resumes

Paderborn – Norwich City

-Been through thick and thin in recent seasons

– Promoted last season, many tipped them both to go straight back down and that’s what looks like is going to happen

– Cut adrift at the bottom of their respective leagues, they should enjoy the experience while it lasts
