KARLSRUHER SC

  • Karlsruher SC have won just one of their last nine Bundesliga 2 games, failing to score in five of them, and remain without a permanent head coach.
  • Eichner named an unchanged side for the first time since taking charge against Nurnberg last Friday, but may make one or two for this one.
  • Choi Kyoung-Rok, Djuricin and Lorenz have been ruled out again due to injury, while no fewer than six players are one yellow card away from a suspension.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Uphoff; Stiefler, Gordon, Pisot, Carlson; Wanitzek, Groiss, Gondorf; Camoglu, Hofmann, Ben-Hatira

Unavailable: Choi Kyoung-Rok (Injured), Lorenz (Injured), Djuricin (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Meetings between these two sides are normally low-scoring affairs. Given that Heidenheim have kept a clean sheet in five of their last seven home league games and Karlsruher SC have failed to score in five of their last seven overall, that trend looks very likely to continue.
