Karlsruhe will face off against Sandhausen in the match of the 4th round of the Second German Bundesliga. Will the owners be able to resist?
In the previous match, Karlsruhe broke up with Groiter Fürth (1-1), thanks to which they scored one point, which became the first in the current championship. Before this draw, Karlsruhe suffered two losses in a row, being weaker Paderborn (0-5) in the first round and Magdeburg (2-3) in the second. On the eve of the fourth round, Karlsruhe is located in the play-off zone, in sixteenth place, and if it wins, it will rise to a maximum of 13th.
In the second round, Sandhausen was weaker "Darmstadt" (1-2), playing away, but successfully holds home matches. In the opening round of the new season, the Sandhausen players beat Arminia 2-1, and in the third they were stronger than Fortuna from Dusseldorf, scoring the only goal in the confrontation in the 46th minute of the second half. The six points scored allow Sandhausen to occupy the seventh position.
Statistics and figures:
- Karlsruhe has not won yet - 2 losses and a draw;
- Sandhausen has six points out of nine possible;
- Karlsruhe lost to Sandhausen in one of the last six matches.
On the road, Sandhausen plays unconvincingly, and this is what Karlsruhe should take advantage of, which really needs a victory. I think that the hosts will be able to celebrate the first Victoria of the season.
