Fürth - Sandhausen

Asian Handicap
Pick: AH -0.5 Fürth
Odds: 1.74
Stake: 1

Match date: 28/04/2021

Greuther Fürth and Sandhausen are playing today from 6.30 pm CET remaining match of 28th round of the 2nd German league, which is of big importance for both clubs. Greuther Fürth is in a big fight to keep second place and place in the elite German football rank, while Sandhausen wants to keep his current 15th place which ensures a stay in the 2nd league.

With quality, Greuther Fürth is definitely a team that could become a first division team, but it has four more games to go, and HSV, Kiel and Fortuna are close in points and can overtake him. Coach Stefan Leitl emphasizes that it's extremely important to win today.

- I will not rotate my team, the best players I currently have will play. We have to leave our hearts on the field and go over the limit of pain to take three points - said Leitl, who apart from some previously injured players (Mavraj, Kehr, Berggreen) is missing midfielder Stach due to suspension, which can be considered the only handicap.

Greuther Fürth plays very offensive style at home in a 4-1-3-2 formation, and forwards Hrgota (12 goals) and Nielsen (9 goals) are a fear for most clubs in the league, but there are also Green, Ernst, Seguin, Abiama, all great offensive players who come from the middle and score goals.

Until recently, Sandhausen was practically written off, then was quarantined for another 14 days because of Covid 19, and then they scored three victories in a row with which left the relegation zone. The particularly sensational victory was 2:1 against a strong HSV, but they were all at home.

Sandhausen is disastrous away, has 12 defeats and only one victory in 13 matches, so there is no need to give much confidence to this team. Also, bad factor for the guests is that this is their third game in just six days, so coach Gerhard Kleppinger announces possible changes in the starting 11.

- We need to see to what extent muscle problems or fatigue could be a problem for players. Our team has done a tremendous amount of running recently. We will wait for the day of the match, and then we will decide whether we will make changes in the first team - said Kleppinger, whose team doesn't have a combinatorial play and relies mostly on long passes and situations in set-pieces where attackers Behrens and Keita are dangerous.

But these are two older players who aren't moving enough and the home defense should block them. Long-term injuries Rick Wulle (after shoulder surgery), Patrick Schmidt (metatarsal fracture) and Robin Scheu (broken collarbone) will also not be available against Greuther Fürth.

Two different goals and two big motives are present in today’s duel between Greuther Fürth and Sandhausen, and we give advantage to the host. Yes, Sandhausen has shone in the last three games, but it's a realistically weak team, also playing its third game in 6 days, and if Fürth will be at the first division level, it will be his victory without a doubt.
