The story so far in the 3. Liga for Uerdingen, who have the fewest scored goals (18) in 3. Liga, at their home stadium (Merkur Spiel-Arena) is 3 wins, 2 draws and 5 defeats.

The fans are hoping that Uerdingen will strike back in this match, putting things right after the 1-3 away loss in the 3. Liga game against Wehen Wiesbaden (placed 4th). Before that match, a win away at Bayern München II.

MSV Duisburg form and stats

MSV Duisburg, who have the most conceded goals (39) in 3. Liga, have only collected 10 points from their away games in the 3. Liga, after 2-4-4 (10 played). Duisburg seem to be suffering from homesickness with two consecutive losses away. Third time lucky?

MSV Duisburg are travelling after their nice 2-1 home win in the 3. Liga against Unterhaching (placed 18th). Prior to that match, a home win 3-1 against VfB Lubeck.

World class coaching! That was the thoughts of manager P. Dotchev when C. Krempicki scored the winning goal after coming on as a substitute in the 79th minute.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Duisburg playing away and similar expectations, we found seven relevant matches. Results were one MSV Duisburg win, two draws and four defeats.

The schedule is very tough for Duisburg now as they have to travel again shortly after this match. A 3. Liga game at Saarbrucken is waiting in only three days.

Duisburg are scoring more than one goal per away game on average, having accumulated 13 away goals from 10 games (in the league). Duisburg struggle to build an impenetrable defensive wall in away matches with a total of 16 goals conceded from these games.
