In the duel contrasts meet each other: The Eisernen started the new season with two wins and two draws. Unbeaten, the Berlin currently ranked third in the table. The MSV, however, occupies the last place without a point and without a goal. Now it’s off to Köpenick Union, against which you could win only one of the last eleven competitive matches. During this period, there were four draws and six Berlin victories. Last season, both teams split twice without a winner. The zebras were last in March 2010 in Köpenick win. Since then, there have been two draws and three home wins in the capital. In a detailed analysis informed the betting base on the second division game Union Berlin vs.. Duisburg and presents a tip and the best odds for the game.
In Köpenick one is quite satisfied with the start of the season under the new coach Urs Fischer. By a 4-2 in Jena, the Iron reached the second round in the cup. In the league Union is still unbeaten after four matchdays and is with two wins in 3rd place in the first four championship games Berlin had to accept only two goals. The back team allows little. They were a bit disappointed in Berlin but from the 0: 0 in Sandhausen before the international break. There you could not score for the first time this season. In the offensive and in the game structure, the Iron were almost not present. In the center, the captains found no points of reference, as their opponents stood tight on their feet. So Union used very early on long balls, but brought nothing. The hopes rest on striker Sebastian Andersson, who scored a double in the 4: 1 against St. Pauli and TSG Hoffenheim new signing Robert Zulj, who still lacked the binding in his start-up debut. Berlin played in the international break 3: 3 in a test match against the Grasshoppers Zurich.
Despite the catastrophic false start you still hold in Duisburg to coach Ilia Gruev. The coach had led the club in the 2016/17 season again in the second division. The preseason had ended the climber on a good seventh place in the 2nd Bundesliga. With goalkeeper Mark Flekken left before this season only one service provider the club. The squad was reinforced in width. But this season, the team was not yet presented as a unit. In Darmstadt on Matchday 3 they broke apart after the first goal. The recovery after a goal has been lost to the team. Hardly any player currently has normal form. In addition, leaders are missing. The uncertainty increases from game to game. In the offensive, the coach is still looking for his starting lineup. Added to this is the injury pitch. Important players like Christian Gartner, John Verhoek or Enis Hajri are currently not available. The pressure on the coach increases. He knows he has to deliver now. How long do you stick to the coach? Three years ago, Duisburg was also ranked 18th. At that time, one held on too long to head coach Gino Lettieri and descended into the 3rd league. Against Fürth on Matchday before the international break coach Gruev tried to spoil the opponent with long balls. However, the ball possession was not so much in the foreground. But after only two minutes, the zebras fell behind against the shamrocks.
