Jahn Regensburg vs Greuther Furth / 2.Bundesliga – It can be almost said that the last match of the 2.Bundesliga’s 26th round has no particular value. The home team, Regensburg, is positioned in the middle of table and need not to worry about relegation while first three positions are too far. Furth is placed in the lower half of table and has eight points fewer than its host and eight more than teams in the drop zone ahead of this round. Regensburg has four-game unbeaten streak, while Furth has three-game winless streak. The two teams drew 1-1 in the first part of season.
Jahn Regensburg vs Greuther Furth begins 18.03.2019 at 20:30 CET
Regensburg doesn’t oscillate much this season and had played a bit weaker only at the beginning of it. After that it almost constantly occupies a place around mid-table, although it plays quite good recently. It has four-game unbeaten streak that comes after two defeats in a row, and now its situation is such that can play totally relaxedly. Out of the four-game unbeaten streak Regensburg won two matches.
It means nothing to them this season where they play, at home or away, as the result is almost the same. Interestingly, out of last four matches they won two played with teams positioned in the upper half, and drew two times with weaker opponents. They managed to win HSV at home and Heidenheim away, while in the previous round they drew with Duisburg. Stopper Sorensen earned the fifth yellow card and is suspended now. Palionis will play instead, while Hein is back at the right flank.
Probable lineups Jahn Regensburg: Pentke – Hein, Correia, Palionis, Fohrenbach – Stolze, Thalhammer, Geipl, Adamyan – Al Ghaddioui, Gruttner
Beginning of the season was very successful for Furth when it even occupied the second place in the table on several occasion, but right now they are far from positions that lead to the Bundesliga. Furth had a negative series of six games without victory in which it suffered five defeats and scored no goals. Some of those defeats were heavy; Cologne won them by 4-0, Erzgegirbe by 5-0 at home, while Paderborn outclassed them by even 6-0. In previous three rounds Furth drew two times and lost once but to HSV away in the previous round.
It drew both times with objectively stronger opponents, Kiel and Heidenheim, and had put up a solid resistance to HSV in Hamburg. They received the only goal in the match five minutes before the end and when they had player less on the pitch since Green was sent off 20 minutes before the end. Seguin was the only refreshment in the team, who replaced Reese. Now, Green is suspended and Steininger will replace him, while Redondo might end up on the bench, which means that Reese is back to the starting line-up.
Probable lineups Greuther Furth: Burchert – Sauer, Magyar, M. Caligiuri, Wittek – Jaeckel – Steininger, S. Ernst, Seguin, Reese – Keita-Ruel
Jahn Regensburg vs Greuther Furth PICK
