The mid-week DFB Pokal tie against fellow strugglers Duisburg is a perfect opportunity for the Blues to rebound from such a dreadful streak. The visitors will also head into this in the lowest of spirits. They share the very foot of the league ladder with Ingolstadt, both teams sitting at six points after 11 rounds of the competition in the second tier of the German football.

Furthermore, the Zebras did not pass the maiden obstacle in last three editions of DFB Pokal. This fact, combined with their form at the start of the 2018/19 season in general, makes them underdogs in Wednesday’s match-up at SchucoArena.

Arminia Bielefeld vs Duisburg Head-to-head

The draw was the most frequent of outcomes in the history of head to head encounters between the two teams.

It happened on 15 occasions as teams are heading towards their landmark 40th clash.

Three or more goals were seen in each of last five head to head affairs.

Both teams were on the scoresheet in ten of nine of last ten head to head fixtures.

Arminia Bielefeld vs Duisburg Prediction

Duisburg were expected to grow in form after they stunned table-toppers Koln in mid-October. However, the win counted for little as the team quickly returned to the old habits clinching only one point from two following league games.

The Zebras scored just one goal in last two league matches. However, we won’t back the hosts to keep a clean sheet here given they shipped three goals in three of last four home matches in 2. Bundesliga. All of Arminia’s last five games at SchucoArena saw goals at both ends.

Knowing about the high-scoring head to head tradition, we have to go with the BTTS pick at the 1.70 odds as the main betting option here.
