Fortuna Koln vs Karlsruher
Fortuna Koln hosts Kalsruher in round 5 of the 3.Liga. The odds offered on the home side are quite tempting I would say as I think the name of the opponent adds something. Fortuna Koln is on second place with 10 points and 3-1-0 so far. The defense is solid with only 2 goals conceded and so far it is a huge improvement from last season when they finished in the bottom places. Fortuna had to sell a few infulential players but it seems they got quality replacements. Fortuna picked up wins over good Aalen, Jena and Osnabruck while have drawn with Unterhaching away 2:2.
Kalsruher is 12`th with 4 points so far and 1-1-2 stats. Kalsruher was relegated from Bundesliga 2 last season and had to sell almost all of the squad. From the last Bundesliga 2 match last season I counted 2 players, including the reserves, that stayed in the team. The new players brought in are mostly from 3.Liga, Regionalligas or Oberliga. So far Kalsruher team can`t say they adapted well to the new surroundings. They droped points where they shouldn`t have and lost both away games. Defensively are not solid enought to challenge Viktoria today I believe. At home they played only 2:2 vs struggling Osnabruck while have lost away to Unterhaching 3:2 and Werder II 2:0. They will take time if this team has any quality at all.
Viktoria Koln will miss the suspended Mimbala(def.4-0) while Wanitzek(mid.4-0) is suspended for Kalsruher. They also miss Bader and Engel for injury.
A lot speaks for a home win today and I expect from the new team of Kalsruher to lose points.
