Eintracht Braunschweig vs MSV Duisburg: Preview and Predictions

Eintracht Braunschweig vs MSV Duisburg
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 18 March 2018
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK
Venue: Eintracht-Stadion (Braunschweig).

The Zebras have significantly halted their push for the elite class football with back-to-back defeats to Holstein Kiel and Fortuna Dusseldorf in last two rounds. It was indeed a tough schedule for MSV Duisburg who have shown plenty of defensive holes against attackingly powerful sides. The trip to Braunschweig should give an opportunity for the Zebras to raise the spirits by keeping things tight at the back against an outfit which has limits moving forward.

The Lions have been struggling for goals ever since the start of the season and they are nowhere near challenging promotional spots this year. Truth be told, the third-placed Kiel are only eight points away. But the relegation playoffs are also three points behind them, and to be fair the hosts lean much more towards that kind of battle until the end of the campaign.

The head coach Torsten Lieberknecht can overall be satisfied with his team’s most recent form since the hosts have only suffered one defeat in last five league outings. They’ve been pretty tough to break down recently keeping three clean sheets in these five matches and they’ll come into this off the back of two straight home wins over Union Berlin and Jahn Regensburg.

Eintracht Braunschweig vs MSV Duisburg: Head-to-head

Trips to Braunschweig have not gone very well for MSV Duisburg over the course of history.

The Zebras have only won 3 of 21 matches at Eintracht-Stadion.

Both of last two H2H ties ended with no winner and with less than three goals scored.

Eintracht Braunschweig vs MSV Duisburg: Prediction

Braunschweig are certainly the form favourites, and given the impressive head to head record they have in clashes with Duisburg at Eintracht-Stadion, we have to take the home win pick at the 2.00 odds.

Alternatively, we’ll shoot for the low-scoring contest and back the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at the odds of 1.95.
