Greuther Furth vs Sandhausen
Germany 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 9 April 2021
Kick-Off at 17.30 UK
Venue: Sportpark Ronhof Thomas Sommer, Furth.
Centre-back Maximilian Bauer scored a massive goal at the death of the last weekend’s clash against Heidenheim to secure his Greuther Furth a huge 0-1 victory at Voith-Arena. The win moved Kleeblatter level on points with the second-placed Hamburger SV. With seven games left to play we can say the battle for the automatic promotion is wide open, especially knowing that the 4th-placed Holstein Kiel have two games in hand on the rest of the contenders.
The team led by Stefan Leitl are now on a run of two wins and a draw in the last three league matches. They will have a phenomenal opportunity to keep such form going on Friday afternoon when they play host to the penultimate-placed Sandhausen in the first game of the Matchday No 28. Sandhausen have picked up an important win themselves last weekend, edging past the rock-bottomed Wurzburger Kickers at their BWT-Stadion am Hardtwald.
Greuther Furth vs Sandhausen Head-to-head
- Greuther Furth will be hoping to repeat the display shown in the first H2H encounter with Sandhausen in this season.
- Back then (December last year), Kleeblatter claimed a demolishing 0-3 victory on the road.
- Furth have thus ended Sandhausen’s two-win streak in this match-up. They, however, still have a positive record with 7 wins, 7 draws, and 3 losses against Sandhausen.
- Three or more goals were scored in each of the last three H2H meetings.
Greuther Furth vs Sandhausen Prediction
Sandhausen are only one point below the safe zone line, but it is really hard to believe they can claim salvation points against the promotion hopefuls on the road. They have a disastrous away record with 12 defeats in 13 league matches on the road this term. Sandhausen conceded two or more goals in nine of the last ten outings away from home across competitions.
On the other side, Furth notched at least two goals in four of the last five league matches on the home ground. The home win is a massive banker at the odds of 1.65. We will also back the Over 2.5 goals FT pick at the 1.72 odds, while Branimir Hrgota (the hosts’ top scorer) is also worth backing to score anytime at the odds of 2.30.
