Dynamo Dresden Looks to Break Ingolstadt Curse
Ingolstadt has not been a happy hunting ground for Dynamo Dresden in recent times. The team has failed to win any of its eight games at the Sportpark, suffered five defeats, and drawn three times. However, when the two sides meet on Monday (7 p.m.), Dynamo will be hoping to change the course of history and clinch a valuable three points.
A win on Monday night would be crucial for the Black and Yellows to keep their promotion hopes alive. Wehen Wiesbaden has the chance to leapfrog Dresden into third place in the table with a victory, which would secure them a direct promotion place due to a better goal difference. Although Coach Markus Anfang is not focused on the table at the moment, Dresden’s players are well aware of the importance of the upcoming game.
Captain Tim Knipping has stressed the need for his team to perform at their best, as any team can come out on top in this fiercely competitive league. If you don’t get to 100 percent in this league, you can lose against any team, warns Knipping.
Despite the significance of the game, Anfang has a more philosophical approach. “But what can we influence? Just our games. If we stay on the path, get better week by week, and deliver our performance, then everything else will take care of itself,” he said.
To take care of business, Dresden must improve on their previous performances at Ingolstadt. They will need to show up at their best on Monday night to break the curse and secure a vital away victory.
