Karlsruher vs Greuther Furth
German 2. Bundesliga
Date: 10 February 2023, Friday
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: BBBank Wildpark (Karlsruhe).
Karlsruher and Greuther Furth are set to lock horns in the first game of Matchday No 20 in 2. Bundesliga on Friday afternoon at BBBank Wildpark.
Both teams sit in the bottom half of the league standings but Karlsruher are in a somewhat tougher position being just one point above the red zone at the moment.
Last weekend brought some late stoppage-time drama for these two outfits. Karlsruher conceded a last-gasp equalizer to drop two points in a huge clash against the rock-bottomed Magdeburg.
Christian Eichner’s men had to settle for a 1-1 stalemate despite having the lead throughout most of the game.
However, we have to say that Magdeburg did deserve the leveler on the occasion as they managed to register as many as 21 shots towards Karlsruher’s goal seven days ago.
Greuther Furth, on the other side, found the stoppage-time winner to secure three points in the home encounter with Nurnberg.
Substitute Ragnar Ache made the difference in a match that was dominated by Furth whose top scorer Branimir Hrgota had missed a penalty-kick in the first half.
Furth thus bounced back from a 2-1 defeat to Holstein Kiel in the first game after the winter break.
Karlsruher vs Greuther Furth Head-to-head
- Karlsruher won 9, drew 4, and lost 4 of the last 17 home meetings with Greuther Furth.
- Karlsruher will go into this on the back of two wins and draws each in the previous four encounters with Furth.
- We saw goals at both ends in each of the previous five head to head meetings between these rivals.
Karlsruher vs Greuther Furth Prediction
Neither of the two teams left a strong impression in the first two games after the winter break. However, we do fancy Greuther Furth to exploit the leaky Karlsruher’s defense knowing the hosts allowed 21 shots in the last week’s clash against the rock-bottomed Magdeburg.
We’ll take the away win bet at the 2.62 odds, while you can alternatively back Furth’s top scorer Branimir Hrgota to score the first goal of the game at the sky-high 8.00 odds.
