Competition: Bundesliga 3

Market: Viktoria Koln win

Odds: 21/20 @ 888sport

Looking to make an immediate return to winning ways on Monday evening, Viktoria Koln will host a struggling Duisburg at Sportpark Hohenberg.

Starting with the hosts, eventually slumping to an action-packed 3-2 loss away at leading promotion contenders Elversberg on April 10th, Viktoria Koln should be smelling the chance to find an immediate boost here. Although Olaf Janben’s side might find themselves sat in third-tier limbo, the Whites have continued on an eye-catching run over the past couple of months. Opening April with a 2-1 win at home against Verl, the one-time Dynamo Dresden boss has seen his side lose just one of their last seven appearances – a run that stems all the way back to February 27th. Likewise, collecting nine points from their previous four outings, Monday’s hosts should also be excited by their recent success at Sportpark Hohenberg. Including a 3-1 romp against relegation scrappers Meppen last month, Janben’s side have lost just one of their last five matchups in North Rhine-Westphalia.

As for the visitors, marking their return from the international break on April 8th with a woeful performance on home soil, Duisburg have continued on a real blip since opening 2023. Eventually suffering an infamous 5-0 drumming at the hands of Borussia Dortmund II, Torsten Ziegner’s men could be looking over their shoulder at a potential relegation scrap. Showing a host of defensive issues and without a win from any of their last five third-tier appearances, the Zebras should face a tough challenge on Monday evening. In fact, including a routine 2-0 loss at the hands of Dynamo Dresden last month, it should also be noted that Duisburg have claimed just one win from their last eight attempts – a run that stems all the way back to February 11th. Given the recent gulf in class between Monday’s opponents, a home victory can be found at appealing odds here.

Bet: Viktoria Koln 21/20 to beat Duisburg in Monday’s Bundesliga 3 battle @ 888sport
