Magdeburg vs Ingolstadt
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 25 August 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK
Venue: MDCC-Arena (Magdeburg).
In the third round of the German 2. Bundesliga, Magdeburg are going to face Ingolstadt on Saturday noon.
The hosts got recently promoted after being the best team in the 3. Liga last season. Their excellent finish in which they missed the chance to win just once in the last ten rounds, propelled them to the top spot and Magdeburg finished two points ahead of Paderborn.
Christian Beck and the lads have been very efficient, while their defence was one of the best in the competition. Magdeburg were superb when playing in front of the home crowd as they suffered just one defeat at their ground. Their main goa this season is to secure a safe mid-table finish an they’ve picked up one point from the first two rounds.
Ingolstadt finished in the middle of the table last season and they had an average campaign. They were safe from entering a danger zone, but yet very far from challenging one of the top three spots.
The visitors have been fairly efficient, while their defence was not too bad. Stefan Leitl’s side has been one of the best visiting teams in the competition as they managed to get back home with a win from seven outings last season. They have the same record as their rivals from the opening two rounds of the current campaign.
Magdeburg vs Ingolstadt: Head-to-head
A very interesting fact is that this clash is going to be the first occasion for these two teams to face each other.
Magdeburg vs Ingolstadt: Prediction
We are expecting a very close match and predicting the winner in this one is pretty tough. However, as the hosts have been playing excellent at their pitch last season, we are going to give them slight advantage in this one. Magdeburg should be able to book their first victory in the season.
Magdeburg have been involved in a lot of efficient clashes in the pre-season period, but their official ones have been low scoring ones. On the other hand, five times in the last six occasions, Ingolstadt have been involved in games where both teams were able to find the back of the net. However, tight battle is expected in this one and the clash should stay under 2.5 margin.
