I'll be in Bremen that weekend and have the game on my list! Really looking forward to seeing Könighofen and Omar Assar! In the bush radio, people say that Lambiet is doing really well in the training group from Werder Bremen!
But at the end, everybody knows who will win. But maybe the young generation in Ochsenhausen will earn some fruits. They played under their level last year what was really dissatisfying for the management and the players.
Let's see what will happen :)

We have good field of players but so far it was always Düsseldorf in the end. On paper Ochsenhausen has a very strong team but I feel like Düsseldorf is going to do it again. Boll seems to be in very good physical condition. If he makes 2 points every game they are very very hard to beat.

I wish we had 1 or 2 more top 15 players in the league.

Oh man... My tt hopes from Ochsenhausen got destroyed yesterday :( Even without Timo they had no chance at all...

I've seen remarkable performances by Kristian Karlsson the last few weeks. Interesting to see how he'll develop!

I totally agree with the performance from Sunday, but if we look back to the previous game against Bergneustadt he lost against Peter Sereda who's normally not playing in the league of a Kristian Karlsson.. So the point with the improving in the last weeks I can't agree ;) But I hope I'll be wrong because I bet on Team Sweden for the Euros :D

Somewhat dumb question - why exactly League format is essentially 'Best of 5', so the first team to make 3 points wins? Would it be better for spectators to have longer team matches? Or is it a given that spectators (and thus ticket sales) do not really matter?

It used to be first to 6 points with 4 players until 08/09 and 2 matches being played simultaneously, but the DTTB chose to change it for whatever reason (spectators have been declining ever since that year...) In season 18/19 they will bring doubles back at least.
