MSV Duisburg form and stats

6-2-7 (win-draw-lost) are the 3. Liga numbers at home for MSV Duisburg, who have the most conceded goals (51) in 3. Liga, so far this season. Ever since the Hansa Rostock game Duisburg has been unbeatable here at Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena producing four straight wins.

Duisburg enjoyed a nice away win last time out, playing at Verl's place. The match ended 2-1 with M. Stoppelkamp (2) scoring. Ahead of that match, Duisburg won a home game hosting Turkgucu-Ataspor (3-2).

This is expected to be a close game, with Duisburg perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with MSV Duisburg as a small favourite), we find twelve games. MSV Duisburg has won five of these, drawn four and lost three.

The Duisburg fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 20 in 15 matches. With more than 1,5 conceded goals on average, the Duisburg defense is not exactly impregnable. 25 goals conceded from 15 games. You can find more goal stats on the Statistics tab above.

Waldhof Mannheim form and stats

4 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses. That’s the product of Waldhof Mannheim, who have the fewest scored goals (10) away in 3. Liga, playing as the away team in the 3. Liga this season.

J. Boyamba scored in Mannheim's previous match, the home game against Zwickau that ended 1-0. Prior to that match, the Waldhof Mannheim manager P. Glöckner faced defeat when travelling to Ingolstadt and losing 0-1.

J. Boyamba came off the bench to score the winning goal in the match against Zwickau last time out, making the manager P. Glöckner feel like a tactical genius.

As mentioned above, this is an open game with no clear favourite. We have found eleven similar matches played by Waldhof Mannheim in our archives, and the results are: two wins for Mannheim, eight draws and one defeat.
