Dynamo Dresden to Win
Dynamo Dresden have won their last two home games against Ingolstadt, which includes a 4-0 victory when the pair last locked horns back in February. Saturday's hosts have also picked up three wins from their four pre-season friendlies and look strong going forward, while Ingolstadt only just secured promotion in their play-off game against Osnabruch and have picked up a win and a draw since then.
We're expecting goals in this game at both ends of the pitch as Dresden have only failed to score in one of their last five fixtures and have scored 7=goals in four pre-season matches, while both teams have scored in four of Ingolstadt's last six outings. The visitors scored 4-goals in their last away games against Eichstatt and will be confident about their chances of scoring on Saturday as well.
Over 2.5 Goals
Three of the last six meetings between these two clubs have produced over 2.5 goals, which includes a 4-0 win for Dresden back in February. Four of the host's last six outings have also featured at least three goals, while over 2.5 goals have been scored in five of Ingolstadt's last six outings.
Dynamo Dresden vs Ingolstadt: Key stats and markets
Which of these newly promoted sides will come out on top?
Dynamo Dresden secured automatic promotion to the 2. Bundesliga and Saturday's hosts have been busy in the transfer market ahead of what is expected to be a very testing season for Dresden. Kade who arrived for just under £500k from Union berlin has now rejoined the Bundesliga outfit for the same fee, while Seo, Mitryushkin, Schroter, Herrmann and Akoto all arrived on free transfers.
Ingolstadt needed to beat Osnabruck over two legs to secure their place in the second tier of German football and after winning the 1st leg 3-0, they almost threw it all away. Ingolstadt lost the 2nd leg 3-1 and only just edged the aggregate scoreline, so now they have to make that effort mean something by avoiding relegation this season. The visitors haven't spent any money so far this season and the only players they have lost has been via the ending of their contracts, so it's not exactly a new look Ingolstadt at this moment in time.
