On the latest edition of the Bundesliga Fanatic Podcast we go in depth on all the action occurring on Matchday 19. We discuss the increasingly widening gap between the top four and the rest of the league and profile Dortmund, Bayern, Gladbach and Schalke's wins at the weekend. We also talk about Michael Skibbe's lifeline at Hertha under declining performances as well as the reshuffling at Hoffenheim under Holger Stanislawski and the relegation battle that seems to be heating up by the minute after an exciting match between Augsburg and Kaiserslautern.

We're back right in time for the return of the Bundesliga Rückrunde with a brand new podcast covering all the action from Matchday 18. On this episode we are joined by German tactics blog Spielverlagerung.de's Tobias Escher. We start with Gladbach's historic win and go into details about the Bayern and coach Jupp Heynckes's tactical approach. What was done wrong and do Bayern lack a tactical alternative to defensive sides like Gladbach? We also discuss Dortmund's big win over Hamburg along, Schalke's resurgence and Leverkusen's roller-coaster season among other things. In our second segment we answer questions submitted on twitter including Podolski's potential move abroad, Bayern in the face of Van Buyten's injury, and Bremen's own defensive dilema and much more.
