Poor season for SVS: Eight points from ten games is SV Sandhausen’s lowest ever return in the second division – same as in 2018/19. 21 goals conceded at this stage is also a record low for the club. Sandhausen currently have the league’s worst home record – just one point from five games.
Goal threat does not equal goals: Werder Bremen have won back possession in the opposition’s defensive third on 96 occasions this season – a league high. Sandhausen have recorded just 54, which is fewer than every other team. However, Sandhausen have converted one of these incidents into a goal, unlike Werder.
Familiar faces: Two former Werder U23s players in the form of Dennis Diekmeier and Pascal Testroet are in the SV Sandhausen squad. While Diekmeier played just 19 games for the U23s before joining Nürnberg and later Hamburger SV, Testroet made 59 appearances and scored 14 goals.
