[b]Greuther Furth VS SV Sandhausen, with away victory[-b]
Wolfsburg loanee soccer under tip Marvin Stefaniak scored his first goal for Greuther Furth to life the team to a 1-1 draw at Darmstadt last Friday.
Sandhausen will be without Robin Scheu Friday night after the midfielder saw his fifth yellow of the season during his club’s 3-1 win over Hannover. Attacking midfielder Besar Halimi played just 20 minutes as a substitute before having to be taken off due to an injury. Sandhausen will get defensive midfielder Emanuel Taffertshofer back from a one-match ban.
Greuther Furth came away from a hard-fought battle at Darmstadt with a point thanks to a missed penalty by their hosts and an 87th minute goal “willed” into existence by substitute Marvin Stefaniak. Though the point lifted Greuther Furth to sixth in the table, the club has just one victory from their last eight league matches.
Five of Greuther Furth’s last seven home league matches have seen at least three goals scored. Sandhausen’s last three away league matches have seen a total of 13 goals scored. This one might be a thriller.
Sandhausen earned soccer today a 3-2 victory over visiting Greuther Furth when the two met in November. Greuther Furth won 3-1 last time they hosted Sandhausen. The visitor has not won any of the last twelve league meetings between these clubs.
