Arminia Bielefeld to Win

In truth, anybody that goes up against Furth this term must fancy themselves strongly, and from an entirely logical point of view, it’s very hard not to side with the hosts here. They’re unbeaten in three at home, while there was plenty to like about their recent 2-0 win over Bochum, who happen to be 16 points better off than Sunday’s visitors, at this venue. 

Arminia Bielefeld 3 – 1 Furth

Arminia are yet to score three goals at home this season, but this is a big chance for them to flex their attacking muscles. After all, Furth have conceded exactly three goals on four occasions away from home already during the current campaign. 

Arminia Bielefeld Win or Draw

The visitors have shown a complete lack of defensive ability, which is why they have a 100% defeat record away from their home ground. That’s unlikely to change here. 

BTTS – YES

In recent times, when playing in front of a home crowd, Bielefeld have tended to both score and concede, while Furth, for all their defensive mishaps, are not averse to notching on the road, finding the net in five of their last seven travelling matches. Both teams have scored in four of the last five games at Schuco Arena. 

Over 2.5 Goals – YES

Four of the last six matches at this arena have contained three or more goals, while Furth can hardly avoid a high-scoring game on their travels. At least three goals have been notched in nine out of nine for the visitors on the road this season. 

Preliminary review and match prediction for Arminia Bielefeld vs Furth

A quick glance at the current Bundesliga table shows us that Arminia have struggled amongst Germany’s best clubs this term, though there has been marked improvement at Schuco Arena of late. Sunday’s hosts come into this fixture off the back three games unbeaten, two of which they’ve won. 

Moreover, Frank Kramer’s men are now without defeat in three at home, and there was lots to like about the way in which they saw off Bochum last time out, winning by two goals to nil. A repeat of that performance would almost certainly be enough to overcome a Furth side that has been truly appalling away from home recently. 

There’s not too much that can be said for the visitors, who despite some improvement at home of late, look certain to be relegated back to the second division. OK, they are going up against a fellow relegation rival, but it’s not at all difficult to see them being outclassed here, as they always are on the road. 

Stefan Leitl troops are yet to collect a single point away from home, losing nine out of nine. At times, they have made their presence felt, scoring in six out of nine, but a sheer lack of defensive ability means that they’re finding it impossible to compete. 34 goals conceded in nine matches really does tell the whole story. 

SAFE BETS

The safest option here must be a home win. The hosts are far from prolific winners at home, but they’ve improved of late, while they arrive here off the back of a confidence-boosting home win against a side of superior quality to Furth when last in action at this venue. Plus, few people would blink if the home win was priced shorter than the current 1.95, such is the level of the visiting side. 

QUICK RICH

Those wanting more bang for their buck as it were could try ‘Arminia to Score Over 2.5 Goals’. The visitors have conceded an average of 3.77 on the road, surrendering three or more in eight out of nine.

BET DURING THE MATCH

Both teams to score could be a solid option in play. The hosts have more than enough to hurt a visiting side that simply can’t compete defensively, though Furth, for all their flaws, do have something of a habit of scoring once the game develops, notching five of their six away goals after the 33rd minute. 

Team News

Arminia will be without Fabian Klos, who is suspended following a red card. Both Manuel Prietl and Nathan De Medina are expected to be sidelined too. 

For Furth, Justin Hoogma is expected to still be out, along with Maris Funk and Robin Luca Kehr.

Starting Lineups

Arminia Bielefeld: Ortega, Brunner, Pieper, Nilsson, Andrade, Wimmer, Prietl, Schopf, Okugawa, Serra, Kruger. 

Furth: Burchert, Meyerhofer, Griesbeck, Viergever, Itter, Seguin, Christiansen, Tillman, Hrgota, Leweling, Dudziak.

Highlighted Player 

Be on the lookout for the sharp play of Arminia’s Masaya Okugawa. The 26-year-old has really come into his own of late, scoring an important goal in his team’s draw with Freiburg last weekend, while he’s now scored in three on the bounce. With six goals for the season, Okugawa is Arminia’s top scorer, averaging 0.41 goals per 90 minutes.
