Sandhausen had a travailed season ending only three points over the first relegated team and start new season with a team almost completely changed with 12 players that left and 11 new arrives.
Three wins against Nancy, Sonnenhoff and Saarbrucken in last three preseason friendlies, Kiel with only two draws in four friendlies, but playing against teams of upper level in other countries ( draws against Mattersburg and Ob, loosing with minimum disavantage against Wednesday and Grozny).
Also if arrived a couple of interesting names, lack of gel for guests and some important absences should be a disavantage for Sandhausen considering that left the team both first keepers Schuhen and Lomb, both first scorers Wooten ( 17g) and Schleunser (10g) and other. Topday also out usual starting defenders Karl ( 22+2) and Kister ( 16) and newcomers strikers Biada and Bohuadoz and midf. Turpitz ( 7g with Magdeburg).
Less turnover for Kile, sixth on table last season, Kinsonbi ( midf.15+3 4g) and third scorer Schindler (6g) the most important names that left the team, today they could have problems at the back, having right back Dehm ( 33) injuried and its possible replacement newcomer Todorovic not ready, too, so should occupy that place anotehr newcomer, Ignovski ( def. 12+5 with Magdeburg) or Neumann ( def.15+5 1g).
No other problems for them, Kiel has as a target at least reply last season placement, while for SDandhausen this should ebg another season in fight for safety and they should need a bit of time to enter in confidence each other.
