THE TEAM NEWS

  • Darmstadt 98 moved up to 10th in the table with a 2-1 win at Hannover 96 on Monday and have lost just one of their last seven Bundesliga 2 matches.
  • It is as you were on the personnel front for coach Grammozis with injured quartet Manu, Platte, Wittek and Schnellhardt still sidelined.
  • Kempe should start for the third game in a row after netting his first goal of the campaign at Hannover, with Grammozis expected to name an unchanged line-up.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Schuhen; Herrmann, Dumic, Hohn, Holland; Palsson, Paik Seung-Ho; Skarke, Kempe, Mehlem; Dursun

Unavailable: Manu (Injured), Platte (Injured), Wittek (Injured), Schnellhardt (Injured)

Doubtful:

ARMINIA BIELEFELD

  • Arminia Bielefeld slipped to second after being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Sandhausen last Saturday, but they have won each of their last six away league games.
  • Yabo has been ruled out after suffering an injury during the Sandhausen game so Edmundsson is set to be recalled in midfield, but no other alterations are expected.
  • Staude should return to the squad after missing the last match through illness but long-term absentees Quaschner and Behrendt will miss out again.

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

Unavailable: Quaschner (Injured), Behrendt (Injured), Yabo (Injured)

Doubtful: Staude (Illness)

THE PREDICTION

Arminia Bielefeld have been superb on the road this season, dropping just two points in their seven away league matches. Darmstadt, however, are unbeaten at home in the league since February but they have drawn a lot of games lately, so the visitors are still slight favourites here.
