MSV Duisburg vs Eintracht Braunschweig
Germany – 2. Bundesliga
Date: 13th October 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Eintracht Braunschweig will be hoping to see an end to their two-loss streak this Friday when they travel to Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena to tackle the struggling MSV Duisburg side in the first of the Matchday No 10 in 2. Bundesliga.
Die Zebras have the weakest defensive line in the competition with 19 goals conceded in the opening nine outings.
The international break came just at the perfect moment for Ilia Grouev’s men who have been on a horrendous run of form losing three of their last four league fixtures.
The defensive line allowed at least two goals in each of the games during the run including three to Holstein Kiel and Fortuna Dusseldorf each in back-to-back losses in last two rounds.
The visitors have also been struggling defensively lately as they conceded four goals in surprising losses to Jahn Regensburg and St. Pauli in last two rounds.
Torsten Lieberknecht’s main task will be stopping Moritz Stoppelkamp who bagged five goals in nine matches for MSV Duisburg.
