Ingolstadt vs Uerdingen Prediction & Betting tips
Back to business: FC Ingolstadt is back in the third division. The Schanzer just missed promotion to the 2nd Bundesliga in relegation last season. Only in the last minute of stoppage time did the FCI’s dreams of promotion burst. This season, the motto is accordingly clear: wipe your mouth and carry on.
With the home game against KFC Uerdingen, the Schanzer start the new third division season on Sunday. As the odds comparison of the betting base shows, Ingolstadt is, as expected, the favorite against Uerdingen – despite incomplete summer preparation.
The FCI is by no means a surprise bag. The Schanzer are among the narrow circle of promotion favorites and want to start the new season with a home win. If you consider that Ingolstadt is allowed to play in front of its own fans for the first time in a long time, the home advantage on Sunday is definitely a decisive factor.
It could not have been worse in the last promotion relegation for FC Ingolstadt. The Schanzer led 3-0 against 1. FC Nürnberg until the last minute of stoppage time and were thus already one leg in the 2. Bundesliga. Schleusener, on the side of Nuremberg, sent the FCI with his goal to 1: 3 into the valley of tears.
The goals of the Schanzer have not changed since then. Ingolstadt wants to go back to the 2nd Bundesliga and has invested heavily in the transfer market. After the missed promotion, the FCI had to cope with some departures as expected. So in the summer eight players went to the Schanzer.
With players like Marc Stendera (Hannover 96), well-known players have also joined. It remains to be seen how FCI coach Oral prepares his team for the season in the third division. After all, the 47-year-old was one of the decisive factors in the Schanzer’s comeback in the second half of the season. If the FCI continues that form, a home win on Sunday will be quite obvious.
Spectators will be allowed again for the first time at the start of the season – albeit to a limited extent. Accordingly, the Schanzer are eager to reflect that home advantage in the result. Tomas Oral has to do without Eckert Ayensa on the first day of the third division. Kutschke and Kaya have fitness deficits, but are in the squad against Uerdingen.
At home, the Schanzer won 28 points in 19 home games last season. It is quite possible that that record will be improved this season. On Sunday afternoon we stop at Ingolstadt vs. Uerdingen a prognosis for the guests is quite obvious.
After the poor performance in the second half of the last season, there was a break in the squad at Krefeld. Accordingly, the KFC Uerdingen remains a real surprise bag this season. How Stefan Krämer, the new coach at KFC, will tackle the first half of the season cannot really be foreseen, even if the Krefeld team did a promising summer preparation.
Among other things, KFC Uerdingen won the test match against Schalke (3: 1) and had an open exchange of blows against Hanover (3: 4). It remains to be seen whether the offensive problem from last season has been resolved. In the last season the Krefeld team presented the second weakest offensive of the 3rd division – level with bottom of the table Jena.
Since then, a lot has changed in the Krefeld squad. A total of 15 players from KFC Uerdingen said goodbye in the summer. Further departures cannot currently be ruled out. In particular Kevin Großkreutz, who is currently in a legal dispute with the Krefeld team. New additions were not lacking at KFC either.
If you draw an interim conclusion, the transfer policy at Uerdingen is quite impressive. At the start of the season, KFC trainer Stefan Krämer will not be able to draw on unlimited resources. The 53-year-old has to do without six players in Ingolstadt. Kirchhoff, Kobiljar, Lukimya, Osawe, Pusch and van Ooijen are all out with injuries.
Most serious are the failures in the midfield, where the options for shopkeepers are considerably limited. Should the Krefelders still succeed in the away coup on Sunday, lucrative odds for tip 2 beckon at Ingolstadt against Uerdingen.
