Eintracht Braunshweig vs Arminia Bielefeld
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 20 April 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Eintracht-Stadion (Braunschweig).
Arminia Bielefeld eased past Erzgebirge Aue six days ago to stay in touch with Holstein Kiel in the battle for the third place and the promotional playoffs. Still, making it to the top flight looks like a herculean task for Die Arminien who are five points below Kiel with just four games left to play. This means a win in Friday’s Matchday opener at Eintracht-Stadion will be an imperative.
The hosts have calculations of their own, though, being just a single point above the relegation playoffs. They are winless in three league games netting no more than twice in the process. However, they made Eintracht-Stadion a fortress in the last couple of months as Torsten Lieberknecht’s side won three and drew one of last four home games in the competition.
The recipe for the continuation of such trend will be stopping Andreas Volgsammer who notched two goals in last two games for Arminia. The German forward now has 12 to his name in this term of 2. Bundesliga.
Eintracht Braunschweig vs Arminia Bielefeld: Head-to-head
Trips to Braunschweig have never been a pleasant experience for Die Arminien.
Bielefeld lost eight and drew just one of nine games at Eintracht-Stadion.
Interestingly, each of last three head to head games offered four or more goals.
Eintracht Braunschweig vs Arminia Bielefeld: Prediction
We have to respect both Eintracht’s home form and the H2H trend in home matches against Arminia. Knowing that both parameters go massively in Braunschweig’s favour, we have to see the value in backing the home win at the odds of 2.30.
Alternatively, we’d advise backing goals at both ends since Jeff Saibene’s squad notched at least a goal in all of past ten games in the competition. Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS is a standout bet at the 2.20 odds as each of last three head to head games ended with at least four goals scored.
