Topic: Germany 2. Bundesliga picks 18-21/3

Friday:


Duisburg vs Dusseldorf

The hosts have 1-0-2 on their last three home games while Dusseldorf have 0-1-2 on their last three away games.

Over 2.5 goals.


Ingolstadt vs Hertha

Hertha Berlin have been outstanding in their recent away games, but they face a very strong team in this one. Could be close.

Over 2.5 goals.


Munich 1860 vs Karlsruher

Munich 1860 have been weak recently, but Karlsruher have not been to impressive recently either. Should be close.

Draw.


Saturday:


Augsburg vs Oberhausen

Augsburg are at the top of the form table and I expect them to take all three points from this one against Oberhausen.

Augsburg win with 0-1 handicap.


Osnabruck vs Aachen

Osnabruck have 1-0-2 on their last three home games while Aachen have 1-1-1 on their last three away games.

Draw.


Sunday:


Aue vs Furth

Aue have strong home form, but they face a team who have been impressive in their recent away games.

Under 2.5 goals.


Paderborn vs Frankfurt

Frankfurt are at the bottom of the form table and I expect them to struggle against Paderborn, but the hosts have not been too strong recently.

Over 2.5 goals.


Union Berlin vs Bielefeld

Union Berlin have 0-2-1 on their last three home games while Bielefeld have 1-0-2 on their last three away games.

Union Berlin win.


Monday:


Bochum vs Cottbus

Bochum have outstanding home form and I believe they have a good chance at getting something from this one.

Over 2.5 goals.
