Energie Cottbus take on Jahn Regensburg in the 26th round in the second German league.
Home team stand at the 7th position with 40 points, only 3 points less than the 3rd team on the table, and they still have a chance to reach the top 3 and promote in Bundesliga.
After a few very poor results, Energie Cottbus have finally taken all three points in the last week victory over Wehen 1-2. They have to start playing better and collect points if they want to play in the best German football league.
Elsner (15/0 m) and Zeitz (18/2 m) are both out for this match.
The visitors stand at the bottom of the table and they desperately need points in order to escape from the relegation zone. They made few very good results in the last three matches in which they took 7 points (2-1-0), but all those good results were against the teams near the relegation zone.
Jahn Regensburg don’t play such bad at home, but on away ground they are terrible. The most of points they took at home, while away they have managed to collect only 4 points in 13 matches (1-1-11).
The visitors have the second worst defence in the league.
For this match they will be without Trettenbach (22/2 d), Dürmeyer (14/0 d), Nachreiner (3/0 d), Sinkiewicz (8/0 m), Hein (19/0 m) and newcomer from Sigurdsson from Norwegian Sandnes Ulf.
Home team is the definitely better side and I believe that they will find the way to take all three points.
