The Hildesheim Invaders (4-8) will play host to the 10-2 Dresden Monarchs Saturday, September 1 in Hildesheim, Germany in a German Football League North game with huge playoff implications for the Monarchs.
Dresden and Hildesheim have met once before this season with the Monarchs coming out on top 35-0.
Although Hildesheim are out of the playoff picture, they can still be spoilers.
Dresden needs to win this game in the tight race for the top three playoff berths in the GFL North. The Monarchs, Braunschweig New Yorker Lions and Berlin Rebels are all in the hunt.
Should both Dresden and Braunschweig both win their games this weekend and then the Monarchs defeat the Lions in the final game of the year, and Berlin wins both of their games, the Rebels will finish first, Dresden second and the New Yorker Lions third. If the Lions win their last two games and finish 14-2, they would capture first, Berlin would come second and Dresden third.
Hildesheim has won four of their last six games and could surprise.
