Kaiserslautern vs Greuther Furth: Preview and Predictions

Kaiserslautern vs Greuther Furth
2. Bundesliga
Date: 29th September 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Fritz-Walter-Stadion.

Kaiserslautern will be looking to end the horrific run of form this Friday when they host Greuther Furth in the match between two of the weakest teams in 2. Bundesliga after eight rounds of the competition.


Norbert Meier got sacked after the home loss to Erzgebirge Aue two weeks ago, but it did not bring the positive shock for Kaiserslautern.

Instead, Manfred Paula’s debut saw the team conceding as many as five goals in a demolishing defeat to Union Berlin on the road.

The disastrous form sees Die Roten Teufel at the very foot of the league standings with only two points from eight matches.

Greuther Furth

Furth have not been much better either, but they managed to escape the rock-bottom with the maiden win for the season (3-1 against Fortuna Dusseldorf on the home patch three weeks ago).

Furth have also made the chance on the bench as the Croat manager Damir Buric took charge after the team took only a single point in opening five fixtures.

However, the Croat expert suffered two defeats after the win on his debut as the team allowed six goals in back-to-back losses to Eintracht Braunschweig and Nurnberg.

Kaiserslautern vs Greuther Furth: Head to head

Kaiserslautern have entirely dominated this match-up in the most recent history.

The hosts picked up six consecutive wins in meetings with Greuther Furth having been especially impressive on the home court where they took seven wins in nine outings with Kleeblatter.

Kaiserslautern vs Greuther Furth: Prediction

Kaiserslautern failed to score a single goal in last three matches and the appointment of the new manager has only resulted in a catastrophic 5-0 defeat last weekend.

We don’t believe they had time to recover and we’ll fancy Greuther Furth to get away with points here.
