Duisburg vs Dynamo Dresden Prediction
It’s a very critical match for Duisburg, and they will approach this game with necessary precaution. The team just cannot afford to lose this home-tie and put them under severe pressure. As of now, they are hanging above the relegation line by a thread and is desperately being followed by the three teams below them.
Both these sides are evenly matched, and most likely we are headed for an intense but goalless first half. Neither team will want to commit silly mistakes or take risks that they think are unnecessary.
A 0-0 forecast for the first half has even more reason to be supported. Duisburg is the team that has scored the least number of goals of all the 18 teams in the league, this season, and Dresden doesn’t usually put on great performances on the road.
However, Duisburg crippled with a handicap, tips the scales in the visiting team’s favors. Duisburg who has scored goals at a rate lower than 1 goal per game, will not overcome a -1 handicap.
