Duisburg vs Magdeburg Prediction & Betting tips
Thorsten Lieberknecht was known until a year ago in football Germany as a coach who worked for a long time at one and the same club and worked with this incredibly successful. Meant is the Eintracht from Brunswick. His term of office, which has lasted for more than ten years, is very unusual in today’s professional football and therefore attracted attention. The time with the lions from Lower Saxony was outshined by the Bundesliga return after 28 years. After another narrow missed promotion to the upper house followed last season, the great case of Eintracht- and Lieberknecht personally. His heart club had to start the bitter gait in league 3 and he himself took the hat as head coach. After a break, he returned this season back to the sidelines.
At MSV Duisburg, however, he now threatens to enter the history books as a coach, who has been relegated from the lower house for two consecutive years. The Zebra has not been kicking for weeks and is ranked last on the table. The red lantern wants to give Duisburg against Magdeburg, although the odds for a tip on the away win are lower. The newcomer from Saxony-Anhalt is traded as favorite after a so far outstanding second half. On Friday night there is a lot at stake for both clubs and at Match Duisburg versus Magdeburg the outlook for the match hinges heavily on the mental condition of the teams. Anyway, the momentum clearly speaks for the guests after the past weeks. The whistle in the Ruhr is at 17:30 clock.
What’s up at MSV Duisburg? After the coach change from Ilja Gruev to Thorsten Lieberknecht the zebras laid down a strong run and freed themselves from the cellar. But just as quickly followed by a negative series that will not end today. The blue-whites hang the bad luck for weeks on the shoes. Whether in the 0: 1 in Fürth, which came about by a late and questionable Penalty for the shamrock or in 2: 3 at home against Union Berlin, as the winner of the iron fell in the final minute – it’s all against the MSV. Recently, the 0-0 in Aue at least a small ray of hope. With the away point, at least the defeat series could be stopped.
However, to land a real liberation must be followed by a threesome at home. Duisburg wants to play against Magdeburg despite the quotas of the bookmakers, who see the guests in the advantage, as a home team and this role on the lawn do justice. Lieberknecht announced a courageous presentation of his protégés. In terms of personnel, the chief coach has to do without an important defensive man. Lukas Fröde saw after his hard entry into Auer the red card and thus missing locked. In addition to the injured – Gartner, Tashchy, Baffoe and Neumann – the staffing will continue to thin. It would be conceivable in comparison to the performance in the Erzgebirge that in midfield Lukas Daschner gets a chance and Tim Albutat would take his place on the bench for him. The 20-year-old youngster, with his carefreeness, would probably do well for the apparently unsettled game of zebras.
As a coach change unfolds its full effect, for the 1. FC Magdeburg is a prime example. After the controversial separation of promotion coach Jens Härtel Michael Oenning has taken over the scepter and the FCM meanwhile led to the non-relegation places. In the winter break, the coach seems to have done everything right with his team, after all, the newcomer in the back round table is a real top team. Five games – three wins and two draws are the impressive record against very well-known opponents. Most recently home stood against promotion contender SC Paderborn after 90 minutes a just 1: 1 draw on the scoreboard. A late and worth seeing goal by Uwe Hünemeier for the East Westphalia destroyed the home win of the FCM. Unfortunately, Michael Oenning was not at all happy about that.
He took the equalizer as a warning shot for his team, not to classify the current run wrong. The naked numbers prove that the blue-whites are still in the middle of the relegation battle and the lead in rank 16 is only three points. The competition from Ingolstadt and Sandhausen does not sleep and scores consistently for weeks. In Duisburg it would be even more important for Magdeburg to let the tip for an away win succeed. In this classic six-point game is about keeping a direct competitor at a distance and possibly expand the lead even further. In a defeat, however, not only the good run would be finished, but also the Abstriegsgespenst would haunt clearly in Magdeburg. Unlike his coaches colleagues, Michael Oenning has hardly any staffing. He can draw on the entire squad with the exception of Aleksandar Ignjovski and thus draw from the full. After the last performance, however, there is no reason for him to make any changes on the grid.
