THE TEAM NEWS

DARMSTADT 98

  • Darmstadt's impressive form since the winter break continued with a 2-0 win at home to Heidenheim last Saturday, their fourth straight success.
  • Captain Holland returns at left-back after being suspended for the last match, so Bader will revert to his usual right-back role.
  • That is likely to be the only change made by coach Grammozis, who has a full squad available aside from long-term absentee Wittek.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Schuhen; Bader, Dumic, Hohn, Holland; Palsson, Stark; Honsak, Mehlem, Kempe; Dursun

Unavailable: Wittek (Injured)

Doubtful:

BOCHUM

  • Bochum led by two goals twice at home to Sandhausen last Sunday but ended up drawing 4-4 after conceding two late penalties in an eventful match.
  • Arsenal loanee Osei-Tutu replaced the sick Zoller in attack for his first start of the year and should keep his place after notching a goal and an assist.
  • Zoller returned to training on Wednesday so Bapoh is the sole absentee for coach Reis, who could well name an unchanged line-up.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Riemann; Gamboa, Decarli, Leitsch, Danilo Soares; Tesche, Losilla, Janelt; Osei-Tutu, Ganvoula, Blum

Unavailable: Bapoh (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

These two sides played out a 2-2 draw in September and they are likely to exchange goals again on Saturday. In-form Darmstadt have netted at least two goals in five of their last seven Bundesliga 2 games, while Bochum have failed to score in just one of their last nine away from home.
