Top (ish) of the table Bundesliga … live!

Two unbeaten teams go head to head in the Bundesliga on Tuesday and thanks to the good folk at it’s available legally in the UK.  The match-up sees Rhein-Neckar Löwen (who play in Mannheim and have six wins from six) take on the big beasts of SG Flensburg-Handewitt who have three wins and two draws from their five games.  Both clubs have had their most successful time in the past decade – in RNL’s case that’s mostly because they only came into existence in 2002 but they have both found their way to true glory blocked by THW Kiel.  A lone title and some cups is Flensburg’s return …

For UK viewers there should be some familiar faces from the Olympics: for example, Mattias Andersson the Swedish goalkeeper who plays for Flensburg will be attempting to keep out Kim Ekdahl his compatriot who plays for RNL.

Last time out in the Bundesliga Flensburg drew 31:31 against HSG Wetzlar and RNL had a relatively comfortable win over TBV Lemgo.  Flensburg and their fans expect a lot better than the relative struggles they’ve had so far so I’m expecting great things from this game which is being played in the 14,500 capacity SAP Arena.

You can watch it here at 7.15PM UK.
