Karlsruher vs Wehen Prediction
Karlsruher admitted their biggest defeat of the season yet last week after Furth posted a whopping 5-1 scorecard at the end of the ninety minutes. Their counterparts were much the better side in that latter clash and finished the game with seven shots on target, as opposed to the hosts who managed just three.
Nevertheless, the home side have been at the losing end just twice in their past ten games in all competitions. They are also sitting thirteen on the ladder, at the moment, with a six-point cushion over Wehen.
Meanwhile, their opponents for the week will be making the trip to Wildparkstadion on the back of a dismal 3-1 defeat at the hands of St. Pauli on the road. The visitors have been struggling in their domestic campaign so far and have just one win to boast of from their last eight games.
To make matters worse, Wehen have tasted success just twice in their outings this season and have been at the losing end in half of their previous eight trips on the road.
On the other hand, Karslruher have been a confident bunch on home soil. They have stumbled just twice in their previous eight games here.
It is also worth mentioning that the hosts have secured the bragging rights in three of their past five meetings with Wehen at home. Hence, it is certainly well within reason to expect Karlsruher to come away with all three points in this one.
Furthermore, the hosts have been keen on racking up the goal scoring charts at home and have found the back of the net seventeen times up till now. Wehen have looked lively in the final third as well and have netted three goals from their past two outings alone.
Taking into account that there has been no dearth of goals in their previous h2h meetings here either, a high scoring affair is certainly in the reckoning come Friday.
