Germany Bundesliga 2 Predictions – Our Analysis for current matches 2023

Exciting football, clubs rich in tradition, full stadiums – these are not only characteristics that can be attributed to the 1st Bundesliga in Germany. The 2nd Bundesliga is also becoming increasingly attractive. Measured by spectator average (before the pandemic), the 2nd Bundesliga was among the top 5 in Europe. The reason for the new popularity is also the large number of clubs that one would actually expect to play in a higher league.

Once against Madrid, Milan, Manchester, now against Heidenheim, Aue and Sandhausen

Many of the 18 clubs in the 2nd Bundesliga look back on a glorious past. In the 2021/2022 season, for example, six former European Cup semi-finalists – Werder Bremen, Schalke 04, Hamburger SV, Fortuna Duesseldorf, Karlsruher SC and Dynamo Dresden – are among the participating clubs. HSV, Werder and Schalke have participated in the Champions League several times, Hamburg SV even won it against Juventus Turin in 1983. But today the opponents are no longer Madrid, Milan or Manchester, but Heidenheim, Aue or Sandhausen.

Very balanced and always good for surprises

In the second Bundesliga, it is close every year. No team with a big name can simply prevail – the supposed underdogs make it difficult for the favourites, surprises are the order of the day. And that makes the league all the more attractive for sports betting because the balance of the league also means higher and better odds.

A look at the statistics for the completed 2020/2021 season

Average Goals

Many 2nd leagues in Europe are known for low-scoring, defensive games. Not so in the 2nd Bundesliga – here there is always cheering – 908 times in the 2020/2021 season! That means an average of 2.97 goals per game in the 306 matches. 44% in the 1st half, 56% in the 2nd half. If you like to bet on the number of goals, you are usually right in this league with the tip “over 2 goals”: In 61.1% of all games, you would have won with this tip.


Although the stadiums often remain empty in times of pandemic, there is a small advantage for the home teams. In the 2nd Bundesliga, this advantage is 0.31 goals. Of the 306 matches played in the 2020/2021 season, the home team won 138 times (45%). In 72 matches (24%) the points were shared. Away victories were celebrated 96 times (31%).

Corner kicks

In such offensively oriented games as in the 2nd Bundesliga, in which play often takes place via the wings, many more corners are taken than in other leagues. On average, there are 9.93 corners. Those who like to place their own bets: In 76% of all games there were more than 7 corners – a number you can usually add to your selection.


If the technical level of the players is inferior, the stadiums are cramped, the atmosphere is heated and the game is tough – then this is also a basis for many yellow and red cards. The league average here is 4.22 cards per game (with one red card counted as two by sports betting providers). 2.05 for the home team, 2.17 for the away team.


As in many other leagues, the most common results in the 2nd Bundesliga are 1:1, 2:1 and 1:0. 27.4% of all matches ended with these three results. In the 20/21 season, however, there were also a few extreme outliers in the results: Once each there was a 3:8, 5:2, 4:3 and 2:5.
