MATCH PREVIEW

MAIN PREDICTION: HOME WIN

 

Greuther Furth overcame the absence of central defenders Mergim Mavraj and Paul Jaeckel to earn a point from a scoreless draw at Hamburg last week. The point extended the club’s unbeaten league run to six games. For the second-consecutive matchday, Stefan Leitl’s side is facing one of the league’s top teams, but will do so at home when Holstein Kiel comes calling. Greuther Furth has taken ten points from their last four home games.

Alexander Muhling’s 60th-minute penalty conversion lifted Holstein Kiel to a 1-0 win in their visit from table-bottom Wurzburger Kickers last week. Though Ole Werner’s team dominated possession, they were struggling to find a way through the visitors’ defenses until the Wurzburger Kickers’ goalkeeper was given a foul for a collision with Jae-sung Lee.

These are two of the league’s best right now and should provide a thrilling match. Greuther Furth’s injury issues are notable, but haven’t seemed to prove a problem yet. The Fin Bartels suspension removes a leader from the Holstein Kiel squad, so give a slight edge to the home team for a win.

 

HEAD TO HEAD

Greuther Furth took a 3-1 win away from their visit to Holstein Kiel earlier this season.
