Team News

  • Thomas Kleine returns from suspension to replace Lasse Sobiech at centre-back.
  • Milorad Pekovic, who returns from suspension as well, could start in central midfield, allowing Edgar Prib to play in a more attack-minded role.
  • Up front, Gerald Asamoah should start as a lone striker once again.
  • Patrick Rakovski will drop to the bench, with goalkeeper Raphael Schäfer returning from injury.
  • Javier Pinola and Marvin Plattenhardt compete for the spot at left-back.
  • Hanno Balitsch returns from suspension to play in defensive midfield, allowing Marcus Feulner to start in attacking midfield.
  • Mike Frantz and Alexander Esswein both have a chance of playing on the left wing, with Timo Gebhart suspended for one game.
  • Sebastian Polter and Tomas Pekhart compete fr the spot up front.

Prediction

  • This should be an intense game given the proximity of the two cities and the rivalry between the teams.
  • Fürth are still second from bottom in the table and the team has won only one of their twelve games so far. Results at home are important now, to close the gap between them and the teams above them.
  • Nürnberg have had problems as well and need to win against teams like Fürth to avoid getting sucked into a relegation battle.
  • Expect this to be a hard-fought and close game. Both teams will have to work hard to get their chances.
