*Odds from Betfred, Netbet and SBK are correct at the time of writing and are subject to change.
Arminia Bielefeld and Greuther Furth are well versed with each other, owing to their encounters in 2. Bundesliga. They have only squared off once in the German top-flight football and the result was a 1-1 stalemate. Five of their last eight H2Hs have finished in points sharing, a fate we expect for this meeting. Masaya Okugawa has emerged as a top draw for Bielefeld with three goals in three Bundesliga outings.
Both Teams to Score – Yes
Recent weeks have seen Bielefeld emerge from the darkness, adding to their goals and points tally. Greuther Furth has only scored two goals in this period, conceding ten goals in the process, twice as much as Bielefeld's sum. Nine of their ten duels since 2-16 have seen both sides score and we predict a similar conclusion to this meeting. Owing to their familiarity with each other and poor defensive record, goals should be observed at either end of the pitch.

Bielefeld Predicted Lineup
We have crossed the halfway point in the season and Frank Kramer will not like the circumstances he finds himself in. Arminia Bielefeld are rooted in the relegation battle and finds themselves three points from safety.
