• Arminia Bielefeld have scored just 4 goals in their last 5 games.
  • Arminia have the league’s best defence, while Dresden have scored the fewest goals.
  • Dresden have failed to score in 50% of their away trips.
  • The hosts have seen under 2.5 goals in 7 of their last 8 games.

Key Clash for Leaders

It’s top against bottom in the Bundesliga 2 on Monday night. Dynamo Dresden head to Arminia Bielefeld hoping for a miracle to pull them off the bottom. Meanwhile, the hosts are looking to kick-start their promotion bid after a slow restart to the season.

Friday night brought another setback as they drew 0-0 with Sandhausen. Meanwhile, Hamburg closed the gap to the leaders to just five points after their 1-0 win over Dynamo Dresden. That result pushed the visitors closer to the drop, with just four games left to save themselves.

Can Arminia Push on?

The hosts have been quite limited in their displays since returning to action, having won just one of their first five games. That’s kept them on course for the top flight, but it means that their promotion bid isn’t going as smoothly as it could be. The hosts are falling short in front of goal, scoring just four times in their last five matches.

We aren’t expecting a thriller here, as Arminia have the best defence in the league and they’re hosting the division’s worst attacking side. Dresden have just 12 away goals to their name, failing to score in 50% of their matches so far. With the leaders failing to spark up front, this should be a cagey affair.

Dresden to Fall Short

The visitors are looking out of their depth in this division, so we don’t expect them to cause many problems here. However, Arminia don’t look capable of a high-scoring win as it stands, with seven of their last eight games finishing with under 2.5 goals scored. Given that 64% of their home games have seen under 2.5 goals, we see another low-scoring contest against a Dresden side who carry little threat. Our first prediction here is under 2.5 match goals.

The visitors have lost by at least two goals in seven of their eight away defeats this term. Given their lack of scoring threat we see Dresden blanking in this trip, while Arminia should make the gap between them apparent with a comfortable win. We are backing a 2-0 victory for the hosts in our correct score prediction, which would put them ever closer to the Bundesliga.
