Both these teams are amongst the worst in the competition, and are placed 14th and 16th in the table. From their combined 20 games in the league so far, they have recorded a total of just three wins, and have let in a whopping 42 goals.
It’s a given that the two teams are getting desperate for points. It’s also a rarity that either of these squads will find themselves in games where they are not the outright underdogs – which is the case this weekend.
As such, we can count on the two to deliver a fierce performance at the Schwarzwald-Stadion, and coupled with their faltering defenses, the expectation is that goals will come in plenty.
Moreover, previous h2h clashes have also had been goal-fests predominantly.
