The new edition of German 2 Bundesliga is about to start. Saturday’s clashes are offering a lot of interesting duels, including Greuther Furth v Sandhausen, teams with different ambitions this campaign.

Hosts have the skills and budget to aim for the top three spots, while Sandhausen will most likely be around the middle of the table judging by the outright winner odds.

Both sides have played a lot of test matches during the pre season period. Greuther Furth’s fans were happy with the starting results and convincing victories against Aubstadt and Stadeln (total goal difference of 9-1).

However later on there was a shocking 5-0 defeat to Vach, followed with another to Liefering 0-2. There is a lot of action going on in the next couple of weeks. Team from Furth will host Borussia Dortmund at this stadium in two seeks as part of the national cup.

As for their opposition, Sandhausen also had brilliant start in the preparations, but later on fallen off a little bit. Loss to 1860 Munich and draw against Stuttgart are nothing to be worried about though.
