THE TEAM NEWS

ARMINIA BIELEFELD

  • Arminia Bielefeld are three points clear in third place and two points behind the top two going into this weekend's fixtures having won three of their last four games.
  • Coach Uwe Neuhaus welcomes top scorer Fabian Klos back from suspension and fellow striker Sven Schipplock made his comeback from injury in a friendly last week.

Doubtful: Schipplock (Injured), Alex Perez (Injured)

HAMBURGER SV

  • Hamburger SV went into the international break at the top of the table after beating Greuther Furth 2-0 at home and have lost just one of their last 10 Bundesliga II matches.
  • Key man Gideon Jung has been declared fit after missing the last match but captain Aaron Hunt is struggling with a muscular problem.
  • Top scorer Sonny Kittel could be recalled after coming on and netting his fifth goal of the season against Furth, with either Bakery Jatta or Martin Harnik making way.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Daniel Heuer; Vagnoman, Jung, Van Drongelen, Leibold; Fein, Hunt, Dudziak; Harnik, Hinterseer, Kittel

Unavailable: Ewerton (Injured), Moritz (Injured), Gyamerah (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

The two highest-scoring teams in Bundesliga II meet in a top-of-the-table clash on Monday. Despite being third, Arminia Bielefeld are yet to keep a clean sheet at home this season while three of Hamburg's four away games have produced four or more goals. The ingredients are there for a cracker.
