Arminia Bielefeld vs Duisburg
2.Bundesliga – Season 2017/18
Date: Saturday, 9th September 2017
Kick off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: SchücoArena (Bielefeld)
The 5th round of 2.Bundesliga is ready to start. Newly promoted MSV Duisburg march to their neighbors and last year league survivors, Arminia Bielefeld.
Die Arminen had a great start of the season although they finished on a hopeless place last year (15th place). The Blues stand comfortably on the 3rd position before the 5th game week kicks off.
Arminia managed to score at least once in each of their league matches so far. They acquired 3 victories and 1 draw, but they haven’t been the dominant side in none of their games. Also, they have failed to keep a clean sheet in 4 of their last 5 matches.
As the Blues are equal with the first and second placed teams they will have a determination lift. We should have the Bielefelders in high spirits and a good play disposition along with the fans cheering for them.
The Zebras are far from the ideal start of the season. They stand at the middle of the table with 4 points, 4 goals and 4 matches played. They scored in 3 of their 4 matches, but they also conceded at least once in each match.
Duisburg comes after 2 friendlies which filled some of the international break. This should be an advantage for them as they won’t be rusty after the pause.
Bielefeld vs Duisburg: Head to Head
Bielefeld managed to remain undefeated in the last 5 h2h encounters. The last 2 h2h matches played at Bielefeld were won by Die Arminen. Also, the last 7 h2h matches have seen both teams present on the scoring board.
Bielefeld vs Duisburg: Prediction
Arminia was more efficient compared to Duisburg, but the Zebras were very dangerous in each of their games. Bielefeld should feel the rustiness induced by the international break, so they are most likely to be breached by Duisburg’s attackers. Bielefeld are very likely to score considering their good offensive form.
To sum up, we can trust both of the teams to score.
