THE TEAM NEWS

ARMINIA BIELEFELD

  • Arminia Bielefeld went into the winter break three points clear at the top despite suffering only their second league defeat of the season at St. Pauli last time out.
  • Schutz and Alex Perez have been ruled out for the opening game of the year along with long-term absentees Quaschner and Behrendt.
  • Linner has arrived from AIK to provide competition for first-choice keeper Ortega Moreno, who signed a new contract last week, and youngster Muller has also signed from Koln.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ortega Moreno; Brunner, Pieper, Nilsson, Hartherz; Prietl, Edmundsson, Hartel; Clauss, Klos, Voglsammer

Doubtful:

BOCHUM

  • Bochum's season has been marked by inconsistency so far, with Reis' side yet to record back-to-back wins or back-to-back defeats in the league.
  • Midfielder Zulj has joined from Hoffenheim and started in a friendly against Dinamo Bucuresti, but he is lacking match fitness and is unlikely to start.
  • Maier did not travel the squad's training camp in Spain but is now back in full training, so Bapoh is the only definite absentee for the short trip to Bielefeld.

Predicted line-up (4-1-2-1-2): Riemann; Gamboa, Decarli, Fabian, Danilo Soares; Tesche; Janelt, Losilla; Lee Chung-Yong; Blum, Ganvoula

Unavailable: Bapoh (Injured)

Doubtful: Maier (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Arminia Bielefeld have only lost once at home this season but they are yet to register a clean sheet at the SchucoArena. At the same time, Bochum have only managed one league win on the road but have scored in all but one of their away games, which points to a home win with both teams scoring.
