Karlsruhe will be hoping for a better result following the 1-0 Bundesliga 2 losing effort in their last game against Regensburg.
Andreas Albers (44') scored for Regensburg.
It has been seldom in recent times where Karlsruhe haven’t conceded. The facts show that Karlsruhe have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 games, letting in 9 goals on the way. Such a trend won’t necessarily be carried forward into this next game, however.
Their prior results show that Karlsruhe:
- have not been beaten in the league by SV Sandhausen in their previous 2 games.
- haven’t won at home in the past 2 matches in the league.
SV Sandhausen come into this encounter after a 1-0 Bundesliga 2 win as they beat St. Pauli in their most recent outing.
Daniel Buballa (45' Own goal) was the scorer for St. Pauli.
The stats don’t lie, and SV Sandhausen have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 6 goals in all. At the back, Sandhausen seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly.
Head to head
Checking out their prior head to head duels dating back to 20/11/2015, there is nothing to separate the two clubs with Karlsruhe winning 3 of those games, SV Sandhausen 3 and 0 being drawn after 90 minutes of play.
An aggregate of 18 goals were scored between the two sides throughout the course of those matches, with 8 for Karlsruhe and 10 created by Sandhausen. That’s an average goals per game of 3.
Team News: Karlsruhe
Karlsruhe boss Christian Eichner has a full complement, with no fitness worries whatsoever coming into this game thanks to a fully healthy group ready to go.
Team News: SV Sandhausen
Thanks to a mainly healthy group of players, there’s just the sole fitness worry for the SV Sandhausen gaffer Uwe Koschinat to contend with. Denis Linsmayer (Concussion) misses out for this game.
In our view, SV Sandhausen will likely be able to score a goal against this Karlsruhe side, but it may not quite be as many as they will have scored against them.
We’re tipping a 2-1 win for Karlsruhe by the conclusion of the game. There looks to be little in this one.
