Talking Fussball Extra – Match Day 19 review and Match Day 20 preview

Matt Hermann rounds up BT Sport’s Archie Rhind-Tutt and the Bundesliga fanatic’s Niklas Wildhagen to take a closer look at all the action from mid-week and to look ahead to the next match day.

The boys get into several issues from match day 19: Were Hertha right to sack Jos Luhukay? What are the reasons behind Werder’s marvellous upswing in form under their new coach Viktor Skripnik? Should referees send Pep Guardiola to the stands when he strays too far from the code of conduct? For a fan’s view of the troubles at Borussia Dortmund, Sandra Goldschmidt joins Matt to talk about the atmosphere on the Südtribüne during BVB’s loss at home to Augsburg. In the last segment, we take a look ahead to match day 20, complete with another edition of our beloved Tippspiel.
