It’s not been often in recent games where KFC Uerdingen have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Uerdingen have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 11 goals in the process. Historical results aside, time will tell if that trend will persist in this match or not.

In the game prior to this, Viktoria Cologne drew 2-2 in the 3rd Liga tie with Verl.
For Viktoria Cologne, the scorers were Michael Schultz (8') and Mike Wunderlich (56'). Yannick Langesberg (51') and Kasim Rabihic (86') scored for Verl.
The stats tell the story, and Viktoria Cologne have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 7 goals in all. Defensively, Viktoria can certainly do much better.

Michael Schultz (Fractured Hand), Alexander Höck (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Lucas Cueto (Twisted knee) and Dario De Vita (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will miss out on this game. Kai Klefisch is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Our thinking is that Viktoria Cologne will have to work hard as a team to be putting a goal past this KFC Uerdingen side who we think will likely win and very possibly keep a clean sheet.
We’re therefore seeing a good battle with a 1-0 winning margin for KFC Uerdingen at the end of the 90 minutes.
It should be a good one.
