Sandhausen vs Furth Prediction & Match Preview

Sandhausen vs Furth
German 2. Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 21 December 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: BWT-Stadion am Hardtwald (Sandhausen).

Both Sandhausen and Furth are struggling badly coming into their head to head clash on Friday evening at BWT-Stadion am Hardtwald. The hosts are winless in last eight games in all competitions, a thread which saw them slip down to 16th place in the league ladder. They are just two points away from the rock-bottomed Ingolstadt ahead of the last game of the year.

Sandhausen were just moments away from ending the winless streak last weekend when they shipped a 94th-minute equalizer against 9th-placed Jahn Regensburg at home. They managed a first-half comeback after conceding an early opener on the occasion, but just couldn’t rely on troublesome defensive line which shipped seven goals in past four league outings.

Sandhausen vs Furth: Head-to-head

Furth dominated this match-up over the course of history.

They won 6, drew 5 and lost only 1 of 12 meetings with Sandhausen.

Six of past seven head to head matches between these two likes saw goals scored at both ends.

Furth took a 3-1 victory on the home patch when these two likes took on each other in the opening fixture of the new season back in early-August.

Sandhausen vs Furth: Prediction

Looking at the league standings, we can say Furth are in a much better position as they sit 10th after 17 rounds of the campaign. Nevertheless, they are on a dreadful run of form at the moment and will head into this off the back of three consecutive demolishing defeats. They allowed 11 goals without scoring a single in three consecutive losses to Koln, Erzgebirge Aue and St. Pauli.

The team led by Damir Buric has the second weakest defensive record in the entire league with 31 goals conceded in 17 games so far. They’ve been particularly easy to break down in recent weeks which is why we find the value in backing Sandhausen to net two or more goals at 2.00 odds here. The BTTS pick is also well worth backing at 1.83 given the hosts’ lack of meticulousness at the back in latest fixtures.
