Visitors to leave Duisburg with all three points
Ingolstadt have a full squad available, but Dario Lezcano is injured and ruled out for the next few weeks.
Dresden are still without the long-term injured Pascal Testroet, Soren Gonther and Marco Hartmann.
Injured/unavailable: Dario Lezcano (broken nose)
Injured/unavailable: Pascal Testroet, Marco Hartmann (both knee); Soren Gonther (Achilles)
MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN
Ingolstadt have had a pretty average season thus far, accumulating 34 points from 26 games. The Schanzer are just four points clear of the drop zone, although they have looked in no real danger of going down this campaign. Last Saturday, Ingolstadt clinched a 1-1 draw at bottom dwellers Darmstadt, their first point since drawing at Aue in the middle of February. However, although they had big ambitions at the beginning of this season they have one of the worst home records, having won just four of their 12 league games in front of their own crowd.
Dresden are finally showing signs of life having won four of their last six. Since losing to Sandhausen at the end of January, which was their third league defeat in a row, Dynamo have turned things around. The team did lose 2-0 at home to Darmstadt two weeks ago, but returned to winning ways last Friday as they squeezed past Heidenheim with a 3-2 win at the DDV Arena. Uwe Neuhaus’ men are currently in ninth in the second-tier table.
After losing a lot of ground in recent weeks, Ingolstadt will be looking to hit back here. It could be close, but I am backing Ingolstadt to claim all three points at Audi Sportpark.
SECOND PREDICTION: ODD/EVEN – EVEN
All of the last five competitive meetings between these two sides have finished with even goals. Take a punt on even goals to be notched at Audi Sportpark on Sunday afternoon.
HEAD TO HEAD
Ingolstadt have won just one and drawn four of their last five home meetings with Dresden.
