Since being defeated in their last game at the hands of Regensburg in Bundesliga 2 action, Arminia Bielefeld will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that match, Arminia Bielefeld managed 53% possession and 9 shots on goal with 3 of them on target. Jahn Regensburg had 12 shots on goal with 5 of them on target. Benedikt Gimber (45'), Maximilian Thalhammer (56') and Minas Gouras (91') scored for Regensburg.
Arminia Bielefeld have regularly broken through opposing defences in the lead-up to this encounter, having scored 5 times in their previous 6 matches. This doesn’t mask the fact that Arminia Bielefeld have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 6 of those same clashes. We will have to find out whether or not that trend will end up being sustained here.
Team News: Engers
The Engers boss has zero fitness concerns whatsoever before this match with a completely healthy squad available to choose from.
Team News: Arminia Bielefeld
Thanks to a mainly healthy squad, there’s only a single fitness worry for the Arminia Bielefeld boss Uli Forte to be concerned with. Manuel Prietl (Ligament Problems) won’t be in action.
In our opinion, Arminia Bielefeld are likely to see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
In contrast, Engers might well find it difficult to make a breakthrough but we do see them hitting back at some stage.
We’re therefore anticipating a pretty comfortable 1-3 win for Arminia Bielefeld at full-time.
