Scroll down for all of our predictions, poll and stats for the Unterhaching v FC Carl Zeiss Jena game (inc. the best betting odds).
Unterhaching won’t want a repeat of their last result here after the 3-0 3rd Liga defeat in their last game at the hands of 1860 Munich.
Dennis Dressel (39', 57', 73') was the scorer for 1860 Munich.
Unterhaching have struggled with their forward play of late. Their goals record stands at just 4 vs opposition teams during their previous six outings. In those meetings, Haching have also seen the tally of goals against them total 12. We shall soon see whether or not that trend can be continued on here.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Unterhaching:
- are undefeated in their last 2 league matches at home.
- are without a win at home for the past 6 league games. Fans are getting restless.
FC Carl Zeiss Jena
Since being beaten in their last game against Bayern Munich II in 3rd Liga competition, FC Carl Zeiss Jena will be aiming to make amends here.
Malik Tillman (8', 61') scored for Bayern Munich II.
A spate of fairly underwhelming displays from the FC Carl Zeiss Jena defence has resulted in a total of 18 goals being scored against them in only their past six outings. They definitely need to see an improvement in this unwelcome component of their game.
Heading into this contest, FC Carl Zeiss Jena haven’t won away from home in the past 9 league games. Very poor, indeed.
