THE TEAM NEWS

BOCHUM

  • Bochum were held to yet another draw at home to Osnabruck last Friday and are only outside the relegation zone on goal difference heading into this weekend.
  • Left-back Danilo Soares returns from suspension and right-back Cristian Gamboa made his comeback from injury as a substitute against Osnabruck, so there could be a reshuffle at the back.
  • Coach Thomas Reis has fewer options further up the pitch with midfielders Ulrich Bapoh, Thomas Eisfeld and Sebastian Maier all ruled out and Tom Weilandt still working his way back.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Riemann; Gamboa, Decarli, Bella-Kotchap, Danilo Soares; Losilla, Tesche; Zoller, Lee Chung-Yong, Blum; Ganvoula

Unavailable: Bapoh (Injured), Maier (Injured), Eisfeld (Injured)

Doubtful: Weilandt (Injured)

ERZGEBIRGE AUE

  • Erzgebirge Aue claimed their first win in five competitive matches last week, beating St. Pauli 3-1 at home to move up to fourth in the standings.
  • Philipp Riese and Clemens Fandrich are both suspended after collecting their fifth yellow cards last week and fellow midfielder Jan Hochscheidt completes his two-match ban, so Louis Samson and Dominik Wydra are set to start.
  • Malcolm Cacutalua was included in the squad for the first time this season against St. Pauli but fellow centre-backs Steve Breitkreuz and Fabian Kalig remain sidelined.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Mannel; Rizzuto, Mihojevic, Gonther, Kempe; Wydra, Samson; Baumgart, Nazarov, Kruger; Testroet

Unavailable: Breitkreuz (Injured), Kalig (Injured), Riese (Suspended), Fandrich (Suspended), Hochscheidt (Suspended)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Bochum have a good recent record against Erzgebirge Aue, losing just one of the last nine Bundesliga 2 meetings between the two sides. Both teams have scored in each of the last eight, though, and that pattern is likely to continue as Bochum have not registered a single clean sheet this season.
