Sandhausen vs MSV Duisburg: Preview and Predictions

Sandhausen vs MSV Duisburg
2. Bundesliga
Date: 3rd November 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: BWT-Stadion am Hardtwald (Sandhausen).

Sandhausen have been struggling a lot with the form over the last couple of weeks after taking only a single point in last three league outings.

The team led by Kenan Kocak has thus ruined the fine kick-off to the new campaign in 2. Bundesliga, but the Friday’s home fixture with the recently-promoted MSV Duisburg side will be a fantastic occasion for getting back on track.


The hosts still sit at the 6th position in spite of the fact they lost two and drew one of last three league matches.

They do seem to miss their top scorer Lucas Holer who skipped last two games and who is expected to be out for the MSV Duisburg clash as well.

In his absence, Richard Sukuta-Pasu remains the main option up front. Pasu was on target in the last weekend’s 2-1 loss at Greuther Furth and he will be the one to look after here.

MSV Duisburg

The Bulgarian manager Ilia Grouev had massive issues with his team’s defensive line as Duisburg had a run which saw them concede 14 goals in four league outings.

Nevertheless, this has been significantly improved recently since the Zebras allowed no more than a single goal in last three matches.

Sandhausen vs MSV Duisburg: Head to head

Duisburg won three and drew one of their four previous clashes with Sandhausen.

The “good news” for he hosts is that they managed to avoid a defeat in the last H2H meeting when the teams shared spoils in a 2-2 draw back in May 2016.

Sandhausen vs MSV Duisburg: Prediction

The Zebras held the fourth-placed Union Berlin to a 1-1 draw last weekend and they will surely be a tough nut to crack here.

We expect the visitors to park the bus and make it a low-scoring contest on Friday.
