The disappointment was palpable in the media box. 1860 were after dominant, and forward Adriano Grimaldi alone should have scored two or three in the derby, at to that goalkeeper Marco Hiller had kept out a penalty and it would have been a fantastic derby story fordie Blauen.But the scoreline was tight, just 1-0, until the last moments of the game and with the last chance of the game, Unterhaching equalised.
Efkan Bekiroglu started against Unterhaching on Wednesday. Signed from FC Augsburg II this summer the 23-year-old has played fordie Lwens academybut failed to break into the first team. For Bierofka Bekiroglu is a classical number ten and his presence is supposed to create room for star striker Adriano Grimaldi. Instead, he played for the likes of Phnix Mnchen and Unterfhring before being picked up by Augsburg. Failure to break into the first team in Augsburg, however, meant that he was will to try his luck back at his youth club.

The match preview to the football match KICKERS WURZBURG vs 1860 MUNICH in the 2.
It is not just the away form, but also the recent overall performances of the Kickers is far from convincing. We have to rely on home versus away form for this fixture as there is little data to look-up on from h2h meetings. 1860 Munich certainly look like the team to win this one outright. They have a solid record at home and also the better quality playing squad.
It will be worth to note that Wurzburger Kickers are one of the sides promoted from third division for this season. But now, they are at the opposite end of the table within a space of 7 games. They were 6th in the table at a 7 point gap from the top. It is particularly disappointing for the Kickers as they were looking good for a promotion challenge before the winter break.
