On Friday evening, two second division teams will meet in the first round of the DFB Cup 2018/19. The match between 1. FC Magdeburg and SV Darmstadt 98 takes place in the MDCC arena. The FCM and the SVD have something in common: they both lost against St. Pauli in the young season. With this defeat for both a long unbeaten series came to an end. In the last DFB Cup season Magdeburg was able to turn off in the first round with Augsburg even a first division. In round two was then against the BVB but final stop. Darmstadt failed in the season 2017/18 in the first round away at a second division: There was a 1: 3 at Jahn Regensburg, who had also risen fresh in the second Bundesliga. Now the lilies want to return to the second round. The betting base takes on the match between Magdeburg vs. Germany. Darmstadt for a tip under the magnifying glass and gives the betting fans a lucrative opportunity to bet and the best odds for the game at hand.


On the first day of the new season Magdeburg lost at home with 1: 2 against St. Pauli. On the second matchday, the FCM had to settle for a 0-0 at Erzgebirge Aue. The draw at Aue was after all the first point for Magdeburg in the second league. In the match, coach Jens Härtel had switched from a four to a three-string to have a man in midfield.

But the plan to reduce the huge gap between midfield and attack and get more impact did not go away. The climber switched too slowly at Ballgewinn and moved neither determined nor closed after. In addition, the team from Elbstadt shied away from the risk. Also many simple ball losses after ball conquests were added. Playful is the climber so much air up. After all, the team was on the defensive, where varied between a triple and five-string, compact and allowed little. The defeat to St. Pauli on Matchday 1 was the first loss to Magdeburg for 15 competitive matches. At home, the Magdeburg had been unbeaten before 12 games before.


Each series comes to an end. That had Darmstadt on the second match day of the 2nd Bundesliga season 2018/19 experienced firsthand. After seasonally twelve games without defeat the lilies went after the 0: 2 in the neighborhood once again as a loser from the square. On the first matchday, the SV 98 was still started with a home win against Paderborn in the new season.

At Pauli, the Darmstadt showed a decent performance for 70 to 75 minutes. But Pauli knew how to annoy the Hessians: early start of the defense with two offensives, advancing the other players, without running into the open knife.
In addition, the Kiez kickers were always very close to the opponent. Thus, the Hesse could not play their attacks under distress and often lost the ball. Often, the lilies knew nothing else to help but to play the ball to keeper Heuer Fernandes, who then drove the game device far forward. But since striker Serdar Dursun was logged off, this style of play was unsuccessful. So it was once again clear where the problems of the Hesse lie: On the defensive, the two full-backs are the weak points. In the central midfield, especially on the double six, a ball-safe game designer is lacking, who can stage teammates. On the three positions, the club would like to continue to refill until the transfer window. But the search is difficult. Coach Dirk Schuster meets his own past on the trip to Magdeburg. Schuster played for the FCM from 1988 to 1990. It was his first stop in the 1st league of the GDR. Felix Platte is missing on Friday due to injury. There are tempting betting odds of 3.50 for betting on the lilies in the match between Magdeburg and Darmstadt.
