Illertissen vs Furth II by Dajkula
Illertissen hosts Greuther Furth II in round 17 of the Regionalliga Bayern. It is a clash of two strong teams but they have underperformed this seson so far. Illertisen was fifth last season and was one of the best home teams but hardly showed that till now. Illertissen lost quite a few times under the coach Bachthaler so he got sacked at the end of the last month and Ilija Aracic took over. Things have looked better since and Illertisen took 3 wins and a loss in the last 4 matches. The team is on the upswing but the thing to worry is that they lost at home again to Garching 1:2. This takes their home stats to 3-1-4 and 15:13 gd. Garching is one of the strongest sides this season but still it may have to do with something else in the home side. I hope it isn`t the case and Illertisen will perform well at home again. Illertissen has tightened the defense significantly and conceded just 2 goals in the last 4 matches which is a huge improvement. They won over some good teams and frankly Furth is the lower part of the table this season. Illertisen only has keeper Janik injured, others are available.
Greuther Furth is 12`th with 19 point and has 22:22 goal difference. Furth has had a lot od changes in the post season and this time they haven`t found the right foundation it seems. This team isn`t as good as the other youth team and it shows. They tend to play much better at home but struggle on away ground with 2-1-5 so far and 7:11 goal difference. Under 1 goal scored away from home isn`t really speaking about a big atacking threat. Furth has been in poor form lately and has lost 3 of the last 4 matches conceding 7 goals and scoring 4. They managed to beat the poor Heining but also lost away to 11`th Schweinfurt. Furth will also miss the longterm injured keepers Grosch and Skowronek, others are available.
The host are in much better form and though haven`t looked the best at home this season I will give them a try. Furth isn`t in best shape and Illerissen should take advantage.
