• Under 2.5 goals have been produced in four of the last seven meetings between these two clubs.
  • Under 2.5 goals have been produced in five of Greuther Furth’s last six matches.
  • Greuther Furth have won 50% of their home games this season.
  • Sandhausen have lost 43% of their away games this season.

Greuther Furth have a good recent record against Sandhausen

Greuther Furth picked up a point away at Darmstadt 98 last time out thanks to a late equaliser from Stefaniak, while Sandhausen leapfrogged Hannover 96 in the 2. Bundesliga table thanks to a 3-1 win over Die Roten in which Biada, Nauber, and Turpitz all got their names on the scoresheet.

Sandhausen head into Friday’s clash as the slight form favourites following that win over Hannover, but Greuther Furth have won six and lost just two of their last 14 competitive encounters with Sandhausen and will be confident of securing all 3pts in their own backyard this Friday.

Sandhausen have struggled for wins on the road

The visitors have only managed to win three games on the road so far this season and sit 2pts and four positions behind Greuther Furth in the 2. Bundesliga table. The home side have already claimed seven wins in their own backyard and clearly play their best football in front of their own fans.

Furth average 1.64 points per home game while Sandhausen average just 1.00 points per away game and with the visitors failing to win any of their last seven trips to the Sportpark Ronhof Thomas Sommer, we’re predicting a tough 90 minutes for Sandhausen this Friday. We don’t expect there to be many goals in this clash as a massive 79% of Sandhausen’s away games have produced under 2.5 goals and five of Furth’s last six matches have also seen fewer than three goals scored.

A tight and tense 90 minutes is expected in Furth this Friday

Greuther Furth score an average of 1.50 goals per home game while Sandhausen concede an average of just 1.36 goals per away game, so you can start to see why we have predicted a final scoreline of 1-0 in the hosts’ favour this Friday. The home side have kept clean sheets in 36% of the matches played in their backyard this season, while Sandhausen have failed to score in that same percentage of their away trips. 29% of Sandhausen’s away games have produced exactly 1-goal, which ties in nicely with our prediction for a narrow 1-0 home win on friday.
