Betting tip 2nd German Bundesliga: TSV 1860 München - Arminia Bielefeld
Sunday, 14.08.2016 at 15:30 hour
Can the “Lions" score for the first time
TSV 1860 Munich was one of the favorites to go up to the first Bundesliga for several years now. Now this seems to be miles away, after the team barely escaped relegation in the past two seasons. In the first home game of the 2016/2017 season Munich needs to score against Bielefeld. Kick-off is this Sunday at 3.30 PM.
Current form TSV 1860 Munich
Munich got a new coach over the summer, namely Kosta Runjaic. There has also been a couple of additions on the team, as well as departures. The prime signing for Munich is striker Ivica Olic. the former Croatian national player came from Hamburger SV and is supposed to replace Rubin Okotie who went to China. 1860 invested a lot in their team once more. Apart from Olic they added Stefan Aigner, Victor Andrade and Karim Matmour. In short: Coach Runjaic task is to form a team out of all those individuals as soon as possible. It’s questionalble, whether he will be successful soon. The team didn't perform well at all in the 0:1 defeat in the season opener against Greuther Fürth. Especially on offense Munich wasn't dangerous enough. It's only thanks to the poor conversion of chances of Greuther Fürth that Munich didn't lose higher. From time to time the new players seemed like aliens in the "lions" game. They were lacking creativity and the few chances they had were missed. There is an easier opponent coming up with Bielefeld though. It will be interesting to see whether 1860 will be able to get on the road to success on Sunday.
Current form Armenia Bielefeld
Two seasons ago Armenia managed to reach their desired goal of going back up to the second Bundesliga. So the goal for this 2016/2017 can only be to finish better than last season, when they ended up on 12th place. The first step towards that goal was a draw in front of their home crowd against Karlsruhe in the season opener. It’s not the result that gives reason to worry, but the performance the team showed. Coach Rüdiger Rehm’s team didn’t perform well, especially on offense, even though there have been some experienced additions to the team. Florian Hartherz for example signed with Bielefeld. In the test matches before the season Bielefeld seemed promising, offensively as well as defensively. But against KSC the team seemed restrained and wasn't able to succeed on offense. On advantage over Munich is that Bielefeld has a team that already knows how to play together and that has been enforced on a few positions. Armenia thrives on a strong collective and not on individual strength like 1860 does. They need to play better on offense though, otherwise it will be hard to win in Munich.
Two teams that had problems in the development of their game in the opening games. Munich's roster might have more quality than Bielefeld, but they are not in the position to make mistakes. If they do, 1860 might lose their second game in a row. For Bielefeld a draw would already be a success. Our recommendation: Tipp 1.
