Team News: Greuther Furth
The Greuther Furth manager Stefan Leitl has no fitness concerns to speak of coming into this clash with a completely healthy squad to pick from.
In our view, Greuther Fürth will possibly use a 4-3-1-2 formation in the match and select Sascha Burchert, Marco Meyerhofer, Sebastian Griesbeck, Maximilian Bauer, Jetro Willems, Paul Seguin, Max Christiansen, Timothy Tillman, Haavard Nielsen, Jamie Leweling and Branimir Hrgota.
Team News: Stuttgart
Stuttgart boss Pellegrino Matarazzo has multiple availability issues to deal with. Konstantinos Mavropanos (Fitness), Fabian Bredlow (Thigh Problems), Atakan Karazor (Metatarsal bone bruise), Erik Thommy (Pelvic obliquity), Mateo Klimowicz (Fitness), Silas Katompa Mvumpa (Corona virus), Naouirou Ahamada (Corona virus), Wahid Faghir (Corona virus) and Mohamed Sankoh (Ligament Injury) will not be playing here.
We’re of the thinking that Stuttgart seem most likely to begin the game with a 3-4-1-2 formation, starting the game with Florian Mueller, Waldemar Anton, Hiroki Ito, Marc-Oliver Kempf, Roberto Massimo, Wataru Endo, Orel Mangala, Borna Sosa, Philipp Foerster, Chris Fuehrich and Sasa Kalajdzic.
Our thinking is that Greuther Furth will have to work hard as a team to breach the defence of this Stuttgart lineup who we reckon will be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance.
We’re therefore seeing a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 victory for Stuttgart after 90 minutes.
Looking forward to this.
