• Under 2.5 goals have been produced in three of the last five meetings between these two clubs.
  • Dynamo Dresden have lost eight and won just one of their 13 away games this season.
  • Wehen score an average of 0.93 goals per home game.
  • Dynamo Dresden have failed to score in 54% of their away games.

This battle of the bottom clubs looks set to be tight and tense

Both of these teams head into Saturday’s clash having lost the majority of their last six outings in the 2. Bundesliga and both will be desperate to secure all 3pts in a bid to avoid the drop.

Wehen put up a good fight away at Hamburg last time out but eventually lost 3-2 to a late goal from Kinsombi while Dynamo Dresden also tasted defeat but in a much more convincing fashion, conceding three first-half goals away at Hannover and failing to find a single reply in the second forty-five.

Wehen boast a not so secret weapon upfront

Just 4pts separate these two relegation battlers and Dresden have two games in hand over Wehen, but Saturday’s hosts have one major advantage over their guests. Manuel Schaffler has scored 18-goals for Wehen this season and currently tops the scoring charts in the 2. Bundesliga ahead of Bielefeld’s Klos by a single goal.

Wehen average 0.93 points per home game, which is below the league average of 1.57 points, but their guests only average 0.54 points per away game and have so far only claimed one win on their travels. The hosts score an average of 0.93 goals per home game and have kept clean sheets in 29% of their home matches this season. Under 2.5 goals have been produced in 57% of Wehen’s home games and both teams have scored in just 43% of those 14 matches, so you can see why we have backed a low-scoring win for the hosts this weekend.

Dresden don’t pack enough punch on the road

The visitors have already lost eight of their 13 away games this season and simply don’t travel well, scoring an average of just 0.69 goals per away game and failing to score in 54% of their away trips. Dynamo Dresden’s top scorer Kone only has 6-goals to his name and Saturday’s guests have conceded 26-goals on the road and have only managed to net nine.

While there is little between these two clubs at the foot of the 2. Bundesliga table and the form guide slightly favours Dresden, we’re predicting under 2.5 goals to be scored this weekend and have backed a 1-0 Wehen win as they have the no so secret weapon, Schaffler, leading the line.
