Arminia Bielefeld vs VfL Osnabruck Prediction & Betting tips
For some teams in the second Bundesliga, the compulsory break came just two months ago at a very bad time. In addition to the form-fitting lilies from Darmstadt, the leader Arminia Bielefeld is one of them. The Arminen have played a strong season so far and have remained unbeaten this calendar year.
Bielefeld are currently seven points ahead of a relegation place. The lead to a non-promotion place, however, is already ten points. It is therefore all the more important to build on the strong balance sheet before the forced break and prevent a kink. As can be seen in the recent interview by team captain Fabian Klos, there are certainly some concerns.
Without the season break, the rise of Arminia would hardly have been unstoppable – at least Fabian Klos. With the home game on Sunday, the re-start in the 2nd Bundesliga should be realized successfully. Although there are no spectators in the Schüco Arena, this does not necessarily have to be a disadvantage for Arminia.
If you compare the league leaders’ home and away balance sheets, the away feeling in their own arena is not a drama. After all, the armies got more points abroad than in front of their own full spectator ranks. In addition, VfL Osnabrück is not exactly the toughest hurdle for Bielefeld. The purple-whites remained without a win eight times before the season break.
Arminia Bielefeld’s next game is the top game against HSV. If the next two games are successfully mastered, there will probably be nothing to prevent the rise of East Westphalia. So far, the team around head coach Uwe Neuhaus has played an incredibly strong season. In this calendar year, the league leader of the second Bundesliga is still unbeaten and therefore oozes confidence.
It is currently difficult to assess the mandatory break without a real competition. Uwe Neuhaus, coach of Arminia Bielefeld, was nevertheless confident and hopes for a successful comeback in the game – if with some reservations. The home game against VfL Osnabrück will be a dress rehearsal for the Arminen before the promotional crackdown against HSV.
Although the ghost setting limits the home advantage to a certain extent, it is not possible to shake the favorite role of the leader even under these circumstances. In addition to the strongest defense in the lower house (24 goals conceded), Arminia Bielefeld also represents the best offensive in the league. A total of 50 goals have already been scored. On average, that’s two goals per game.
So far, the second half of the season has been optimal for Arminia. In the seven games of the second half of the season there has been a record of 5-2-0 for the leader.
The clean slate was saved in five of seven games. Before the season break, there was a division of points in the away game at the table neighbor from Stuttgart. The Neuhaus-Joker Soukou scored the equalizer in the 1-1 draw.
The army’s internal list of top scorers is currently led by captain Fabian Klos. The 32-year-old striker from East Westphalia is the linchpin of the Bielefeld offensive game. With 16 goals and eight assists, Klos is also the best – measured by the scorer points – offensive man of the second Bundesliga.
On the whole, Uwe Neuhaus will largely be able to draw on the full. Little had changed during the break at the Arminen hospital. With Quaschner, Voglsammer and Behrendt three players are still missing due to injury. If Bielefeld prevails against Osnabrück, passable odds for Tip 1 will wave.
For VfL Osnabrück, the break in the season came in handy almost two months ago. The balance before the break was catastrophic and there were signs of a second-round crisis. After all, the purple and whites remained without a win eight times in a row and recently suffered a severe 2-6 home defeat against SV Wehen Wiesbaden.
The dot cushion on the red zone has already shrunk to four counters. If the next defeat beckons on the next matchday, it may only be a matter of time before Osnabrück slips into the table basement. In the coming weeks, the purple and whites with the games against Hannover 96 and Greuther Fürth will have a very demanding game plan.
In addition, the important home advantage at the Bremen Bridge is limited. The ghost backdrop hits VfL Osnabrück particularly hard with a stadium utilization of almost 88%. The “twelfth man” in the back will be missing the purple and white in the current crisis. It remains to be seen how Daniel Thioune, coach from Osnabrück, prepares the team for the unusual circumstances.
The 45-year-old trainer for the purple and whites will have to find a remedy for the ongoing form crisis in the coming weeks. Otherwise, a relegation battle in the basement will be unavoidable at the end of the season. In Bielefeld, the twelfth of the table in the second Bundesliga is a very difficult task.
So far, things haven’t gone very well for VfL Osnabrück on foreign territory. In twelve away games, Thioune’s protégés scored a meager 2-5-5 record. The last time there was an away win for Osnabrück in early December. The defensive game of the Thioune team will have to improve in order to be able to win a point against the leader.
Defenses on the defensive, such as the recent home debacle against Wehen Wiesbaden, could lead to the next dismantling. At Bielefeld against Osnabrück, a prognosis for the guests can only be justified with a good dose of optimism.
