Osnabruck was a slight favorite away to Wehen in the previous round, but the team disappointed in a 2:0 loss.
The side had all of the ball possession in the match, however, looked far less creative than usual and didn’t threaten properly.
On the other side, the hosts simply had a great development of the match, scoring against the flow and later being able to threaten a lot via counters.
It was the third game with no victory for Osnabruck, as the side now stands at the thirteenth position with two points more than play-out placed Holstein Kiel.
The home side continues to miss a couple of long-term absentees who didn’t play so far anyway. They also can’t count at injured goalkeeper Korber (4/0). Midfielder Ouahim (7/2) is doubtful, as well as defender Susac (3/0).
Arminia Bielefeld, on the other side, comes from their first defeat this season. They were unable to stop Stuttgart at home, being generally equal to opponents till the 61st minute when striker Klos got red-carded.
After that, it was all about Stuttgart who in the end reached deserved victory with a goal in the first minute of additional time.
The side is now five points behind the leading duo from HSV and Stuttgart and a victory here would bring them back to positive ways and they would remain sharp in a promotional fight.
Forward Klos (8/6) is suspended for this match and will be a blow for the guests. They also miss central defender Behrendt (4/0).
Arminia Bielefeld has scored at least 2 goals in their last 6 away matches in Bundesliga II.
Arminia is obviously benefiting from a lack of pressure away from home, but this time it may be a bit more difficult for them since they miss one of the best players. Still, there’s plenty of more individual quality in their team, while Osnabruck seems more than solid in their home matches and isn’t afraid of attacking either.
