THE TEAM NEWS

ARMINIA BIELEFELD

  • Arminia Bielefeld are second in the table following their 3-1 win at Jahn Regensburg last weekend and have lost just one of their last 13 Bundesliga II games.
  • The win was dampened by a serious injury to first-choice centre-back Brian Behrendt, who suffered a cruciate ligament tear which is likely to keep him out for most of the season.
  • Coach Uwe Neuhaus must choose between Stephan Salger and Amos Pieper to take Behrendt's place, but there are unlikely to be any other changes from last weekend.

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

Unavailable: Brunner (Injured), Quaschner (Injured), Schipplock (Injured), Weihrauch (Injured), Behrendt (Injured)

Doubtful:

GREUTHER FURTH

  • Greuther Furth have made a decent start to the season with seven points from four games, including a respectable point at relegated Hannover 96 last Saturday.
  • Right-back Marco Meyerhofer will be assessed after missing the trip to Hannover, while Maximilian Wittek was preferred to David Raum on the opposite flank.
  • Winger Marvin Stefaniak is also a doubt having sat out the last game while strikers Daniel Steininger and Shawn Parker remain out of favour as the end of the transfer window approaches.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Burchert; Sauer, Caligiuri, Mavraj, Wittek; Sarpei, Seguin; Leweling, Green, Mohr; Keita-Ruel

Unavailable: Ernst (Injured), Steininger (Out of favour), Parker (Out of favour)

Doubtful: Meyerhofer (Injured), Stefaniak (Injured)

MATCH ANALYSIS

Two sides who have made good starts to the campaign meet at the SchücoArena, where Arminia Biefeld have won six of their last eight games. They are yet to keep a clean sheet this season, though, and may struggle to do so against a Furth side who have scored in their last six away league matches.
