THE games are coming thick and fast in the German 2 Bundesliga and none more so than for relegation-threatened Dynamo Dresden.
They've given themselves half a chance of making the great escape with a terrific 3-2 win at the weekend, a win that takes them to within 6 points of safety with two games in hand on the clubs above them.
With games running out they can ill afford any slip ups here against a Greuther Furth side who themselves will be wanting to widen the 5 point gap between them and the relegation spots.
Its a big game for both sides and a match that has some good betting opportunities for us.
Dynamo Dresden vs Greuther Furth (KO 5.30pm)
A vital win at fellow strugglers Wehen at the weekend has given Dresden a huge boost in the battle to beat the drop but they'll know they need a repeat performance to collect another three points and put the clubs above them under pressure and looking over their shoulder.
21 of their 28 games this season (75%) have seen over 1.5 goals and they host a side who boast an impressive 86% with 25 of their 29 matches seeing at least 2 goals.
Since returning, there have been no shortage of cards involving these sides – Dresden have seen 4/2/7 cards (2+ team cards in all three matches), whilst Furth have seen 4/5/4/4 (3 of those saw 2+ team cards). In fact Furth have the highest team card count in the league away from home, averaging 3.0 cards per match.
Gristof Gunch is the man in the middle and I've had a look through his mathes over the last 12 months – he's shown:
1/5/6/8/2/5/3/4/5/5/5/4/5/7/5/7 cards (avg 4.5 cards per game)
Its a crucial match for both sides and given the card stats of these two, escpailly since they returned, mixed with the referee in charge who's not shy in dishing out the cards, there's a good chance we'll see bookings this evening.
Needing 5 cards for even money, whilst I don't think it will be far away I'm going to take over 1.5 match goals and 3.5 cards.
- Over 1.5 match goals / Over 3.5 cards
- 10/11 (NAP) (Skbet BB)
- Both sides over 1.5 cards
- 1/1 (Betway Bet Builder)
