Arminia Bielefeld and Bayern Munich go head-to-head at the Schüco Arena for their first Bundesliga H2H meeting in over a decade.
The hosts have accrued a win, a draw, and a loss from their opening three league fixtures, all of which featured under 2.5 goals. Indeed, both of Arminia’s Bundesliga results (win/loss) this term yielded the identical 1-0 scoreline. Something similar may take place here, though it seems highly unlikely. Yet, three of their last five top-flight H2H meetings have seen Bayern run out 1-0 winners. Still, ‘Die Arminen’ boast an almost perfect home record this calendar year (W8, D2), with a rock-solid defense being a reliable contributor to that strong recent record. Uwe Neuhaus’s men kept a clean sheet eight times across that ten-game sequence, conceding precisely one goal apiece on the other two occasions.
Meanwhile, the visitors have won two of their opening three Bundesliga matches (L1), all of which saw the winner on the day score over 3.5 goals. Late action is well on the cards here, as each of Bayern’s three league fixtures so far produced over 1.5 goals beyond the 70-minute mark. Remarkably, the ‘Bavarians’ had been on a 100% nine-game winning away run this calendar year before succumbing to a 4-1 loss to TSG Hoffenheim in their latest road trip, beating their hosts of the day via at least a two-goal margin on seven of those occasions. Furthermore, Hansi Flick’s men kept a clean sheet six times during that nine-game sequence, conceding precisely once per match in two of the other three.
