SCUNTHORPE V MANCHESTER CITY EDS
Scunthorpe United enter this fixture after a 1-1 League Two draw versus Sutton United.
It’s been all too rare in recent times that Scunthorpe United have shown defensive steel. The facts show that Scunthorpe United have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 7 goals in the process.
Following on from being beaten in their last game against Tranmere Rovers in EFL Trophy action, Manchester City EDS and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In their last 6 outings, Manchester City EDS have bagged the sum of 11 goals. Manchester City EDS have also not failed to score in every single one of those games. During that period, they’ve had 7 goals go into their own net. That pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward into this game, though.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
MANHEIM V MEPPEN
Mannheim will want to continue from where they left off last time out with a 2-3 3rd Liga success against Viktoria Cologne.
For Mannheim, the goals were scored by Dominik Martinović (22') and Marc Schnatterer (32', 44'). Marcel Risse (48') and Simon Handle (80') scored for Viktoria Cologne.
It has been a rare occasion in recent games where Mannheim haven’t conceded. The facts show that Mannheim have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 7 goals in the process. That pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward here, however.
Meppen go into this game following a 2-0 3rd Liga win in the defeat of Verl in their previous match.
For Meppen, the goalscorers were Luka Tankulic (30') and Willi Evseev (90').
Rico Schmitt's Meppen have found the back of the net 7 times throughout their previous 6 matches. The number of goals that have been scored against them during those matches comes to 6.
Prediction: Both teams to score
HALLESCHER V KAISERSLAUTEN
Hallescher, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 0-1 3rd Liga triumph against Viktoria Berlin.
The only player to score from Hallescher was Terrence Boyd (28').
In their preceding six games, Florian Schnorrenberg's Hallescher have netted 11 times resulting in an average number of goals scored per match equal to 1.83.
Kaiserslautern go into this clash following on from a 3-0 3rd Liga win with the defeat of 1860 Munich in their last outing.
For Kaiserslautern, goals were scored by René Klingenburg (27'), Muhammad Kiprit (33') and Mike Wunderlich (87').
The strike force from Kaiserslautern have suffered from a lack of goals over their previous 6 encounters, netting the poor return of only 4. In those fixtures, Kaiserslautern have also seen the collective goal tally of their opponents equal 7. We will find out whether or not that trend will be sustained in this game.
Prediction: Both teams to score
