Home and Away: Dynamo looking for explosive performance in play-off second leg

28May 2013



Jonno Turner previews action in Germany and Argentina as he looks for two more winners in his Home and Away column...


We're off to Germany for our first pick of the day - as Dynamo Dresden welcome Osnabruck to the Glucksgas Stadion, looking to extend their excellent recent home form.


Peter Pacult's side line up for this clash having won their last four on their own patch, and will be desperate to get another victory here, in order to overturn a 1-0 deficit from the 2.Bundesliga/3. Liga play-off first leg.


Nine goals scored in their last four outings in front of their own fans suggests that the Saxony side have more than enough in the final third to punish their guests, and they will be looking to burst out of the traps in this encounter - and draw level as soon as possible.


Osnabruck go into this one in decent form themselves - but are more inconsistent on the road, and have lost eight of their last 10 away from the Osnatel-Arena.


That 1-0 victory from the first meeting between these sides will have given the Lilywhites a boost - and they will be keen to maintain that margin here, but nine goals shipped in their last five on their travels indicates that their are weaknesses in the visiting defence which could be taken advantage of here.


Bet 1: Dynamo Dresden (HOME) @ 1.81


Turning our attentions to action in Argentina now, as Gimnasia La Plata travel to face Instituto in the Primera B Nacional.


The visitors line up for this one high in confidence following just one loss from six on the road, and that leaves them sitting second in the table - just five points off leaders Rosario Central.


Boss Pedro Troglio will be delighted with that return - a much improved campaign compared to last season's fifth placed finish - and, with just four games left to play, a win is a must if the Triperos want to realistically keep their dreams of winning the title alive.


Two clean sheets on the bounce suggests Estadio Juan Carmelo Zerillo side are more than capable of keeping out their hosts here, and grinding out another positive result on their travels.


Instituto go into this clash sitting second bottom of the table, and are in inconsistent form - with just one win from their last five.


Frank Kudelka's side have won just two from eight on their own patch - a run which goes back to early February - and just two clean sheets in their last seven at the Estadio Presidente Peron indicates that their guests' attacking momentum may cause some problems here.


The home side have failed to win in eight of their last nine meetings with Gimnasia La Plata, and I can't see them securing the three points in this clash, either.


Bet 2: Gimnasia La Plata (AWAY) @ 2.16
