Alexander Esswein will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
We’ve got the feeling that Duisburg should have enough to score a goal against this SV Sandhausen side, although that realistically won’t be as many as they’ll concede.
We’re predicting both teams to score in a 2-1 winning margin for SV Sandhausen at the end of this one. Could easily see this go either way.
