Karlsruher take on the visitors Braunschweig in the round 4 match of German Bundesliga 2. The match will be played on Sunday, August 27th at BBBank Wildpark (Karlsruhe).
Karlsruher SC, after three rounds, has one win, one draw, and one loss in their record. Thus, the Eurofighters have gathered four points and currently hold the 9th position. However, this is conditional as four other teams also have the same number of points. Under the guidance of Christian Eichner, they started with a hard-fought victory over Osnabrück (3-2), and then built on that success with a draw against Hamburg (2-2). Considering the twists and turns of the match against Hamburg, a draw is more than a positive outcome. However, after these two promising matches, Karlsruhe unexpectedly stumbled and suffered a setback. First, the team lost in a cup match against Saarbrücken (1-2), and then experienced defeat in the championship against Wehen (0-1). It's worth noting that based on their play, Karlsruhe certainly didn't deserve to lose against Wehen, but as they say, the score is what matters.

Eintracht Braunschweig started their tournament journey with two consecutive losses in the league and elimination from the German Cup. First, the Lions were defeated at home by Holstein Kiel (0-1), then they lost away to Magdeburg (1-2), and in a cup battle, they were forced to surrender to Schalke (1-3). By the calendar's arrangement, Braunschweig once again faced Schalke in the third round, but this time in the context of the Second Bundesliga. Few could have predicted that against such results, the Lions would manage to take points from Schalke. In the end, Eintracht managed to offer significant resistance to their opponent and even inflicted a defeat. The only winning goal was scored by Braunschweig's defender, Phil Kaufmann.
Karlsruher SC somewhat unfairly lost to Wehen in their last match, and therefore, they will be highly motivated to make amends in their home game against Eintracht Braunschweig. I still consider Eintracht one of the main contenders for relegation, and the victory over Schalke, although significant, hasn't changed my opinion. However, underestimating the Lions entirely would also be incorrect. The history of their encounters suggests that their matches are always fiercely contested. In their last five head-to-head meetings, three ended in draws, and each team secured a victory once. Moreover, Braunschweig has not won on Karlsruhe's turf for six consecutive matches (since 2011). I believe that the home team will at least avoid defeat this time, and the overall match outcome won't exceed 4.5 goals. Prediction: 1X + Under 4.5 goals.
Prediction for the match: Karlsruher not to lose. And Under 4.5 scored goals.
