Team News: Greuther Furth
Greuther Furth manager Stefan Leitl will be happy not to have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this match owing to a fully healthy group available to select from.
Team News: Karlsruhe
Karlsruher boss Christian Eichner has to currently contend with reduced team options. Dirk Carlson (Fitness), Marc Lorenz (Ankle Injury), Benjamin Goller (Knee Injury) and Kyoung-rok Choi (Torn Muscle Fibre) are those who can’t be considered.
We’re inclined to think that Greuther Furth will most probably dominate on the ball and be rewarded with decent chances.
Conversely, Karlsruhe may well find it hard to get shooting opportunities although we do think it’s probable that they will be pulling one back during this clash, too.
Therefore, we are anticipating a fairly comfortable 3-1 winning score for Greuther Furth at the end of the match.
