If Arminia Bielefeld visits Rot-Weiß Essen on Monday evening, then it is a new edition of the first round of the 2016/17 season. Even then, the traditional club from Essen, which was lost in amateur football, was able to annoy the East Westphalia for a long time, but in the end was defeated by 6: 7 on penalties.
In the run-up to the game between RW Essen and Bielefeld, the bookmakers’ odds are again pointing towards Arminia, as the odds comparison of the betting base, below, shows.
At RW Essen against Bielefeld, the forecast must take into account that Essen could only be defeated on penalties in three of their last four appearances in the DFB Cup against a higher-class club. The regional league is anything but a bye.
Even today we trust RWE to keep the match against the reigning second division champions open for a long time, which is why we consider the tip on the draw at the break at Essen against Bielefeld to be very interesting. However, because we believe that the strong Arminia will still get the ticket for the next round in regular time, we are playing the half-time final score bet X / 2.
Betting Tips: X (1st HT)
RW Essen – Statistics & Current Form
The fact that the 2019/20 season in the German amateur leagues was canceled hit Rot-Weiß Essen quite hard. Master Rödinghausen finally did not apply for admission to the 3rd league, which meant that SC Verl was allowed to play for promotion as second in the table.
The Esseners were only two points missing in the final table but on Verl, which is why there might still have been something to be gained for the traditional club, which was even German champion in 1955 and won the DFB Cup two years earlier.
Christian Neidhart should lead RWE into the 3rd division
It still corresponds to the claim of the crashed club to find their way to the third division and thus back to professional football in the medium term. For nine years now, RWE has simply not got out of the Regionalliga West.
With Christian Neidhart, the club bosses have now signed a coach who once managed this promotion out of the regional league with league rival Lotte and who is now supposed to accomplish this feat again in Essen. There was also a small transfer offensive.
At the start of the regional league only 1: 1 at home against Wiedenbrück
With Simon Engelmann and Felix Backszat from the reigning regional league champion Rödinghausen, Felix Schluesselburg from the Dortmund youth team and Jonas Behounek from third division Großaspach, several players were signed who could potentially help Red-White immediately. The former scored promptly in his first competitive game for RWE.
The 1-1 draw at home against Wiedenbrück at the start of the league last Saturday also showed that there is still a lot of work ahead of the Lower Rhine regional cup winner. Even with a clear home win, it would have been presumptuous to place a tip at RW Essen against Bielefeld on Essen’s entry into the second round of the cup.
Probable formation of RW Essen:
➲ Davari – Herzenbruch – Heber – Hildebrandt – Behounek – Kehl-Góme – Grote – Kefkir – Backszat – Endres – Engelmann

Bielefeld – Statistics & current form
In a 2nd Bundesliga with clubs like Hamburg, Stuttgart, Hanover, Nuremberg or Darmstadt, hardly anyone had Arminia Bielefeld high on the list when it came to naming the candidates for promotion.
In fact, Uwe Neuhaus’s team walked through the season with unbelievable ease and with only two defeats out of 34 games they ended up with a 13 point lead in third place, so that the return to the top floor of German football was dry at an early stage .
The really big names are missing at Arminia
It goes without saying that those responsible stuck to Uwe Neuhaus as a trainer, but could not keep all of the top performers. Jonathan Clauss went to RC Lens in Ligue 1, while Florian Hartherz stayed with Bundesliga relegated Düsseldorf in the 2nd Bundesliga. A total of ten players left, but none of them was paid for.
This is one of the reasons why the clumsy Arminia had to look primarily at the price tag of newcomers and steered only transfer-free players to East Westphalia or, in the case of Ritsu Doan and Sergio Córdova, made loan deals. This means that the really big names in the ranks of the second division champions are searched in vain.
Only two defeats in the 2019/20 season in the 2nd Bundesliga
It is clear that the mission of staying up in the league of German football will be difficult. But it is also clear that a Bielefeld team is making a guest appearance in the cup in Essen, that they only lost two games in the 2nd Bundesliga last season and that the bottom line is definitely not the deterioration in the transfer market.
Probable formation of Bielefeld:
➲ Ortega Moreno – Laursen – van der Hoorn – Pieper – Brunner – Prietl – Yabo – Hartel – Doan – Córdova – Klos

RW Essen vs Bielefeld Soccer Betting Tips
At RW Essen against Bielefeld, the prediction is primarily influenced by the fact that Arminia still brings the momentum and self-confidence from the championship season in the 2nd Bundesliga, while at Essen with the 1-1 at the league opener against Wiedenbrück, disillusionment was announced.
Key facts – RW Essen vs Bielefeld tips
⚡️ Bielefeld threw Essen out of the cup three years ago, but then had to go to penalties
⚡️ Essen only played 1: 1 at the start of the season in the Regionalliga
⚡️ Bielefeld lost only two of the 34 league games in the promotion season
We trust the Essenes, who have always been tough opponents in the cup against higher-class teams, to hold up against them for a long time. In the end, we at RW Essen against Bielefeld consider the tip on the Bielefeld win in regular time to be the most sustainable.
Because of the low odds, however, an addition is required to get more value on the ticket, which is why we decide in connection with the potential draw at break for the half-time final score bet.
