Ingolstadt had relegated from the German elite division by results of a previous season, however, they came up to the start of a new season with 11-game undefeated streak. And the side broke it with 0:1 loss to Union Berlin in face of its supporters in the first round of the new season. It means that the team shouldn’t count for an easy life after its relegation from the Bundesliga and it has to go through the tough battle to promote to the elite division.
This summer Sandhausen showed open football having conceded a lot, but having scored even more. Ingolstadt are only going to adjust their mind from the performance in the elite division into a second tier battle and as it was shown by the first clash it may take some time. I presume that the hosts will lead the game at the home ground and it will be a high scoring head-to-head.
Prediction for the match: Over 2.0 scored goals.
