This year the team looks very strong and confident in creating scoring chances, stealing the ball from the opposition, coming back from losing positions and protecting the lead. However, Jahn Regensburg is facing troubles at keeping possession of the ball, defending counter attacks and defending from attacks down the wings. Very likely, that they will face troubles in defense because of the absence of main back, they will take lots of shots and attempt crosses often.

 

Greuther Furth

Moreover, in the last 10 matches, they scored only 3 goals in a total of two games. This is an extremely weak form, which could cause relegation to the lower league at the end of the season. In 13 away games they scored only 8 goals and collected 12 points, most of them at the beginning of the season.

Several main squad players will miss the match due to injuries. Moreover, Julian Green will not be able to help the team due to red card suspension for one matchday in Bundesliga II.

Spielvereinigung Greuther Fürth is strong this season at protecting the lead and stealing the ball from the opposition. However, they show weaknesses at defending set pieces, defending against attacks down the wings and finishing scoring chances.
