Mannheim come into this game on the back of four straight wins in 2016 against Eintracht Trier (2-0/home), Neckarelz (1-0/away), Walldorf (3-0/home) and Kaiserslautern II last Friday (1-0/away).
The hosts have a comfortable eight-point advantage over the third team in the standings (Eintracht Trier), Kenan Kocak can count on players like Michael Fink (def. / 2 goals) and Hanno Balitsch (midf. / 3 goals) and in addition to that, the club signed with two experienced players in Jonas Strifler (midf.) from Arminia Bielefeld and Freddy Mombongo-Dues (forw.) from Viktoria Koln during the break.
8-2-1 23/6 for Mannheim from eleven games at Carl-Benz-Stadion this season, as seven of those eleven encounters were won with two or more goals difference.
Marco Muller (def. / 1 goal), Christian Muhlbauer (def. / 1 goal), Hanno Balitsch and Daniel di Gregorio (midf. / 3 goals) are out due to injuries, but the first two players haven’t played a single minute in 2016.Marcel Seegert (def. / 2 goals) and Guiseppe Burgio (forw. / 8 goals) also have problems with injuries, but could be ready on time for this match.
Bahlinger is a modest team with limited resources, who plays on this level for the first time in its history.It won’t be an easy task actually, given the fact that the guests are on the edge of the relegation zone, with only three-point advantage over the seventeenth team in the standings and with obvious problems away from home (0-6-6 10/26).
Bahlinger began 2016 with a goalless draw in the visit to Pirmasens on Feb. 27, followed by a 3-1 win at home over Spielberg at the beginning of the month, but suffered a 0-3 loss in the visit to another team from top 3 (Elversberg) and failed to win three points at home against the big outsider in this league last Saturday (1-1 vs. Saar 05 Saarbrucken).
Like their opponents, the guests also have problems with injured players in Yannick Haringer (midf. / 1 goal), Bryan Gaul (midf.), Ergi Alihoxha (midf.) and Alsan Ulubiev (midf. / 5 goals), but unlike his colleague Milorad Pilipovic doesn’t have enough interchangeable players in the squad.
Despite all these problems with injured players, Mannheim will enter into the game as a big favorite and I think that the hosts will manage to win this match with more than one goal difference.
