Furth started well away to St. Pauli last week but let their heads drop after going behind in the 19th minute. They did subsequently have some decent attacking moves, but insecurity at the back cost them dear in a 3-2 defeat.
They will take comfort from playing on home soil this week after two consecutive away games: the Clover Leaves beat Karlsruher 1-0 on Matchday 1 in their last outing at the Stadion am Laubenweg.
FSV Frankfurt took the lead after just 25 seconds at home to Karlsruher last weekend but failed to string together any decent attacks for the rest of the match and ultimately succumbed to their visitors’ pressure and lost 2-1.
Tomas Oral’s men have just one point from a possible nine so far this season and that goal – the result of shambolic defending rather than incisive attacking – was their first of the campaign. Neither side are in great shape, but I believe Furth are currently the stronger of the two so am backing a home win.
