Our prediction for this Bundesliga 2 match:
Buoyed by a thrilling 2-0 win over promotion-chasing Paderborn, Arminia Bielefeld will look to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they face Magdeburg on Matchday 17. Die Arminien are desperate to escape the relegation zone, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Magdeburg. The good news for the hosts is that forward Bryan Lasme is back from suspension, but all Lukas Klunter, Ivan Lepinjica, and Sebastian Vasiladis are banned for the match.
Magdeburg, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Darmstadt, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. In their last meeting in the German second tier Magdeburg defeated Arminia Bielefeld 3-1, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge. All Luca Schuler, Leon Schmokel, Florian Kath, Belal Halbouni, and Maiximilian Franzke remain in the recovery room, while Criatiano Piccini misses out through suspension for the away team.
