The zebras receive as table last the kicker from Köpenick, who in turn third of the table to play the promotion to the Bundesliga. Although the hosts were able to free themselves from the relegation places for some games at the end of the first round, but the interim high is gone again. Only one victory succeeded the West German since December and instead it put during this period no less than six defeats in seven league games. In addition, MSV Duisburg had beaten the SC Paderborn in the domestic Schauinsland travel arena just under two weeks ago in the DFB Pokal.
Today’s Football Prediction Duisburg vs Union Berlin
The 1st FC Union Berlin, in turn, continues to dream of the first promotion to the Bundesliga. The team plays a very good season – at least at home. At the Alte Försterei the club is still unbeaten, a feat that otherwise only the SC Paderborn can match. As strong as the team in Berlin occurs, but it is often weak abroad. Only an away win was recorded by the Iron and finally there were again defeats in Aue and FC St. Pauli. At Duisburg vs Union Berlin, the odds, however, give the guests the role of favorites. We agree with this assessment, so that corresponding bets are played with five units.
Duisburg – Statistics & Current Form
Since Matchday 9 Torsten Lieberknecht is hired as head coach at Duisburg and his debut came off with a 1-0 away win at the then table top 1. FC Köln absolutely successful. However, a sustainable upswing can not be determined under his direction. Although his record with four wins, two draws and seven defeats in comparison to the predecessor Ilia Gruev better, who had retracted after eight matchdays only miserable two points, but in recent weeks, the form of the team has dropped noticeably again. Also, the start of the new year can be described as a maximum of mixed. So lost the four-time Cup finalist at VfL Bochum with 1: 2, before then a 3: 2 home win against Darmstadt was achieved. But on the threesome followed on the last day again a 0: 1-defeat in Fürth, who could not land a single goal for six matchdays and also had not won for a long time. The defeat was also still flattering, as the shamrocks equal two penalty in the game did not turn into a scoring. Another negative consequence of the game is the suspension of Tunisian defender Enis Hajri, who saw the red card in Fürth and has to suspend for two games. Of course, this is not good news for the weak defense of Duisburg anyway.
Together with the last opponent, the zebras make the second weakest defense network in the 2nd Bundeliga. Only Darmstadt has caught one more hit in the season so far. Especially at home Duisburg is very generous. Here are the odds of goals against an average of two per game – negative league record! Even the offensive is in front of their own audience, the worst of the entire 2nd Bundesliga with only nine goals in ten games. With eight defeats Duisburg also has the most home defeats of all representatives in the second German league. A soft uptrend is still noticeable, as the two only home wins have been scored in the last five home games.

Wiedwald – Bomheuer – Nauber – Seo – Schnellhardt – Albutat – Engin – Wolze – Kallevik Nielsen – Oliveira Souza – Iljutcenko

Union Berlin – Statistics & Current Form
The Köpenickers can currently claim the title “The Best of the Rest” for themselves. After the two hottest promotion aspirants in the form of Hamburger SV and 1 FC Cologne ranked the kicker from the capital in third place, tied with the 1st FC Heidenheim and FC St. Pauli. Away, it was but last bad for the Iron – because the two recent appearances in foreign countries were lost in each case. First, Union Berlin had beaten 0: 3 in Aue, followed by a 2: 3 defeat at St. Pauli, but unfortunately failed, since the decisive goal for the Kiez kicker happened only in the 94th minute and one This evening was actually the better team.
On the other hand, recent defeats on foreign territory are nothing new to Union. Only one win could land the DDR-Cup winner of 1968 so far away. For a promotion candidate this is of course a much too weak yield. In addition, the club has lost only two away games and instead has already drawn seven times a draw – a number that has no other club in the 2nd Bundesliga. Only four of the last six away games ended with a division of points. While Union is the best home team in the league, it only takes 12th place in the away classification – by the way equal on points with the next opponent. In the upcoming match, coach Urs Fischer has to renounce Sebastian Polter due to injury, who is with five goals the third best scorer in the ranks of Union.

Duisburg has been wearing the red lantern in the table since the last matchday. The team lost last weekend at Fürth, who were the weakest team in the lower house in recent weeks. It is obvious that the interim form increase is over again. At home, the Blue-Whites are very weak anyway: read at only six points, which were snatched in the domestic Schauinsland travel arena.

Although the Berlin travel as third in the table and can refer to a recent home win against the strong Cologne, but away from the Union Union has been guilty of much in this season so far.
