Ingolstadt vs Hamburger SV
Date: Saturday, 28 January, 2017
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Audi-Sportpark, Ingolstadt.
The 6-point match in the relegation battle will be played this Saturday at Audi-Sportpark where Ingolstadt are hosting Hamburger SV.
With a single point separating the two teams and with the safety being three points away after 17 rounds of the competition in Bundesliga, the stakes can hardly be higher. Ingolstadt almost held Schalke to a goalless draw. But the substitute Guido Burgstaller scored the winner for Konigsblauen with seconds left for the final whistle.
Ingolstadt had a single shot on goal against Schalke and it is evident that Maik Walpurgis prefers defensively oriented football. This is why we can expect the hosts to pay much more attention to the back giving a decent value to the Under 2.5 goals bet at 8/13.
Hamburger SV have struggles in the attack on their own. They opened the new year with the defeat at Wolfsburg last Saturday failing to find the net. Markus Gisdol can be quite happy with the end of the last year because his team managed to take three wins in four games in December to escape the rock bottom of the standings.
Ingolstadt vs Hamburger SV: Head-to-Head Stats
Ingolstadt are yet to celebrate the first ever win over HSV ahead of their 6th head to head clash. Each of the last two encounters played at Volksparkstadion ended in a 1 – 1 draw, including the one from August last year in the opening round of Bundesliga.
Ingolstadt vs Hamburger SV: Prediction
None of the two sides has a decent attacking potential and the match is of a huge importance literally bringing six points. Therefore, we believe that the best betting option would be the Under 2.5 goals at 7/11 odds. The goalless draw is a worthy longshot at 7/1, while you can also chase the draw at 23/10.
