both sides notched impressive victories last week, with hertha beating bayer leverkusen away, and stuttgart smacking werder bremen 4-1. this makes tonight's game tough to call. there's good firepower on both teams, with pantelic and voronin for the berliners, and cacau and mario gomez for stuttgart. i can see stuttgart winning this one to push on further ahead in the table, as thomas hitzlsperger has been in good form, pulling the strings in midfield and releasing super mario, mario gomez frequently. mario gomez is a totally different player from the one you saw at euro 2008, in case you don't follow the bundesliga. the one playing for germany at euro 2008 comes from the same species, but is of a different type. it is commonly referred to as the "mario goal-miss" for a complete lack of finishing inability or the "mario go-where" for his lack of influence in matches. hopefully tonight, it's "mario gomez" who turns up.
Eddy's prediction: $5 on vfb stuttgart level @ 1.95 = $9.95
