1. FC Kaiserslautern is facing a groundbreaking duel: will it be about promotion or against relegation in the future? Presenter Tom Bartels speaks to FCK player Boris Tomiak in SWR Sport in Rhineland-Palatinate.
On Saturday 1. FC Kaiserslautern must compete at 1. FC Saarbrücken. If the Lauterer win the game, the view goes back to the ascent, but lose them, they are in the middle of the relegation battle. At the moment, the Red Devils are in eleventh place with 19 points and have only three points more than the first relegated, but also only four fewer than the third-placed. SWR Sport shows the detailed analysis of the game.
Interview with Boris Tomiak
In addition, presenter Tom Bartels will analyze the situation at the third division with Boris Tomiak. What is certain is that the defense is the showpiece of the Lauterer. FCK have only conceded eleven goals – fewer than leaders Magdeburg or second-placed Osnabrück. Always there: Boris Tomiak, who has stabilized the Lauterer defense in all 14 games so far. In his opinion, what are the strengths of the FCK, where is there room for improvement? And what are his personal goals?
Mainz 05 receives Gladbach

The hosts can go into the game in fifth place, because things are going well for the Mainz team at the moment. Particularly in focus: the storm duo Jonathan Burkardt and Karim Onisiwo, who were involved in eight of the last nine goals. SWR Sport shows in detail how the Mainz team did in the home game.
Social media: a blessing and a curse for the athletes
Social networks have become an indispensable part of life today. They offer athletes great opportunities to make themselves better known and thus increase their market value. But there is also the other side of the coin: hatred and agitation in the event of failure, racist insults and even death threats. Moderator Tom Bartels talks about this with the former long-distance runner Sabrina Mockenhaupt, who now has more than 100,000 followers on Instagram and Facebook. In addition, with Wiebke Dierkes from the Sport University Cologne, a specialist in social media is connected.
After the broadcast there are broadcast clips in the SWR channel of ARD media library.
