The home team returns to flyeralarm-Arena after being equal after 90 minutes with Viktoria Berlin (placed 9th) on their last time out; the 3. Liga game ended 1-1.

Before that match, a win away at Kaiserslautern.

Würzburger Kickers has won three of these, drawn two and lost two.

Another home game is coming up fairly shortly for the hosts, as Eintracht Braunschweig are coming to town in three days.

Meppen form and stats

The visitors are W3-D2-L3 on the road this term. That's in the 3. Liga. The visitors have performed well in their home games as well, building a total win streak of four games home and away. Meppen hope to make it five in this match.

270 minutes! That's how long the Meppen goalkeeper Erik Domaschke and his defense have shut out their league opponents.

Meppen won their last game, 4-0 versus Viktoria Koln played at home. As you can tell from the results above, Meppen was very dominant against Viktoria Koln, winning the match with a scoreline that even the finest fortune teller couldn't predict. 4-0 (!) with Morgan Fassbender, Luka Tankulić (2) and Richard Sukuta-Pasu providing the goals.

That result followed a home victory 1-0 versus Turkgucu-Ataspor.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Meppen playing away and similar expectations, we found eleven relevant matches. Results were six Meppen wins, two draws and three defeats.

Meppen have a decent goal production going in their away games, although not fantastic. In 8 league away games 9 goals have been scored. Meppen's defence is not exactly unbeatable as they have conceded 14 goals from these trips.
