Saarbrucken face off with visiting team Dynamo Dresden at Ludwigsparkstadion in this 3rd Liga clash on Sunday.
Our Saarbrucken v Dynamo Dresden predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below (inc. the best betting odds).
Saarbrucken will be hoping for a better result after the 2-3 3rd Liga loss in their previous game against 1860 Munich.
For Saarbrucken, the goals were scored by Manuel Zeitz (39') and Amine Naïfi (41'). Morris Schröter (4', 16') and Niklas Lang (82') scored for 1860 Munich.
It’s been all too rare in recent times that Saarbrucken have shown defensive steel. The reality is that Saarbrucken have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 11 goals during that time.
A look at their previous results shows us that Saarbrucken:
- have not lost a league tie with Dynamo Dresden in their last 5 matches.
- are without a home win in the past 3 league matches.
Dynamo Dresden head into the clash after a 1-5 3rd Liga win against Viktoria Cologne in their previous match.
For Dynamo Dresden, the scorers were Stefan Kutschke (17', 45', 85'), Niklas Hauptmann (32') and Robin Meißner (83'). Donny Bogićević (55') was the scorer for Viktoria Cologne.
A series of dependable displays from the Dynamo Dresden defensive players has seen their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 4 from their previous 6 fixtures in total. Over that same period, their own forwards have managed to score 13. Nevertheless, time will tell whether that pattern will continue on in this game.
Pre-game facts show that Dynamo Dresden:
- haven't beaten Saarbrucken in away games against them for the last 4 league games. Not good at all.
- are undefeated in their last 3 league matches away from home.

Team News: Saarbrucken
The Saarbrucken boss Rüdiger Ziehl will be happy not to have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this game thanks to a fully healthy group to pick from.
Team News: Dynamo Dresden
Dynamo Dresden boss Markus Anfang has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Paul Lehmann (Knee surgery), Kyrylo Melichenko (Knee injury), Lucas Cueto (Fitness), Erik Herrmann (Ankle problems) and Tobias Kraulich (Torn muscle fiber) miss out here.
We’ve got the feeling that Saarbrucken might well have a job on their hands to register a score against this Dynamo Dresden outfit who should be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a very even match with a 0-1 victory for Dynamo Dresden when the full-time whistle blows.
It should be a good one.
