Magdeburg vs RNL
A top clash between two expected top-5 teams and with RNL as defending champions. Two teams that have quality on both ends but usually shows exciting games with high pace and always wanting to pressure their opponent. Magdeburg is 5th with 7-0-4 record. Great scoring so far with players like Weber, Damgaard, Christiansen leading the way. Are fighting some flu troubles with Green most likely out and Zelenovic is doubtful due to shoulder issues.
RNL was for me the best-looking team in Europe before the break. Handle the tight schedule great and despite not having the squads like PSG, Veszprem and some other absolute top teams they shown a strong intensity and tough play. The Swedish keeper-duo is sharing the job and one of them at least usually have a good day. Strong defence in front and a strong 1st and 2nd wave with players like Tollbring, Groetzki and back from injury the Icelandic bullet Sigurdsson. Schmid is a leader in offense and key as a goalscorer, playmaker and creates gap for his teammates. Imo there are weaknesses in some of the 9m´s especially on the right side but with the play they have shown players like Reinkind, Petersson have delivered.
Magdeburg won their last encounter back in December and have the squad to match RNL. Expect a high tempo match. Always a risk when coming back from a break like this but with the play RNL showed before the break I think they will get back on track right away. Not often we get decent odds on a straight RNL win and imo they are in general the better team. RNL to win is the prediction.
