With 8 matches to go, still 6 teams are contending for the Bundesliga title. Who will make it, what do you think ?
Could you elaborate on what you mean here ?My vote is obvious as well.
In my opinion there are only three contenders: Wolfsburg, Hamburg and Bayern.
Stuttgart and Hoffenheim are way behind and Hertha will not catch up with the first two again anymore.
On a sidenote I also don't see Hamburg winning it. They have been the luckiest team in the league so far with 6 points more than they should have. Bayern has been the unluckiest by far in the top group. In fact we would already be leading the league by three points...

Bayern unlucky ? HSV 6 undeserved points ?
Come on, this table is bulls*it. As you said by yourself, you never know how a game would have ended if this penalty was given or that goal was disallowed.http://www.wahretabelle.de/wahretabelle/wahre-tabelle.php
I know it is not 100% correct obviously because you never know how a game would actually have ended with correct decisions. For example do I doubt Bayern's loss against Wolfsburg would have happened if not for the not given red card in 4th minute and the offside 2-1 of Dzeko. But the number of wrong goal decisions is definitely true and that is at least an indicator.
Wolfsburg far from it, you got the Magath factor and Grafite (20 goals in 17 games) , but you also got Barzagli, Schafer, Gentner and Josue, all having solid seasons. Throw in Hasebe, Madlung, Costa, Riether, Dejagah, Simunek and Pekarik who signed in January and you got yourself a tough side.Nothing against them in any team but don't make it sound as if it is as if any of the Bundesliga teams is where it is solely because of Bosnian players...
Maybe if you are just watching the highlights.Let's hope Wolfsburg wins it. They are the team playing the most sexy football in this second part of the season.
I weekly watch games from the Bundesliga. Off course they are not always showing the Wolfsburg games on TV ... Got to say I enjoyed watching Wolfsburg / Hoffenheim much more then Hertha or HSV for example. Whenever Wolfsburg / Hoffenheim played, I was sure to see some great goals (as well in the build up, as in the finishing), and that's what I look for as a neutral fan.Maybe if you are just watching the highlights.
I don't want to talk down Wolfsburg, they are playing really good at the moment but their football doesn't have the quality shown by Hoffenheim in the first half of the season.
