Competition: Bundesliga 2

Market: Under 2.5 goals

Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport

With a spot in Germany’s second-tier still hanging firmly in the balance, Dynamo Dresden will welcome Kaiserslautern to the Rudolf-Harbig-Stadion on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, after only just managing to hang onto their Bundesliga 2 status last season, it has been another nightmare campaign for Dresden. Eventually finishing their dreadful campaign sat eight points adrift of safety, Head Coach Guerino Capretti saw his side miss what they would have billed as a golden chance last week. Having to settle for a toothless 0-0 stalemate away at Tuesday’s guests in their first-leg showdown, the Dynamo’s have started to show some recent issues in the final third. Along with drawing back-to-back blanks after signing off their regular-season run with a 1-0 loss at home against fellow strugglers Aue, Dresden have managed to bag more than a single strike in just a pair of their last 19 domestic outings. Likewise, Capretti’s side have seen each of their previous three home fixtures finish with under 2.5 goals.

As for the visitors, putting in a gritty display when they welcome Dresden to the Fritz-Walter-Stadion for their first-leg showdown last week, there is no doubt that Kaiserslautern will be desperate for a repeat here. However, while the Reds might have managed to grab themselves consecutive third-place finish in Bundesliga 3 this season, they have struggled to pick up any kind of momentum over the past month. Signing off their regular-season run with a sluggish 2-0 defeat against Viktoria Koln on May 8th, the Red Devils are now in the midst of a four-match winless run. Despite playing out that 0-0 stalemate when they faced off against Dresden last week, Kaiserslautern do hold a downbeat record against the second-tier strugglers. Winning just one of their last five meetings against the Dynamo’s, don’t be surprised to see a cagey affair here.

Bet: Under 2.5 goals at Dresden vs Kaiserslautern 7/10 for Tuesday’s Bundesliga 2 battle @ 888sport
