THE TEAM NEWS

GREUTHER FURTH

  • Greuther Furth are unbeaten in three games after drawing 1-1 at Holstein Kiel last Sunday and can close the gap on the top three with victory on Friday.
  • Midfielder Ernst, who has been on the scoresheet in the last two games, is suspended after collecting his fifth booking of the season at Kiel.
  • His suspension adds to a lengthy list of injuries, with right-back Sauer the latest concern after coming off with a knock at Kiel.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Burchert; Sauer, Bauer, Caligiuri, Raum; Sarpei, Seguin; Hrgota, Tillman, Redondo; Nielsen

Unavailable: Green (Injured), Mavraj (Injured), Keita-Ruel (Injured), Leweling (Injured), Stefaniak (Injured), Wittek (Injured), Ernst (Suspended)

Doubtful: Sauer (Injured), Meyerhofer (Injured)

HAMBURGER SV

  • Hamburger SV bounced back from successive defeats with a 2-1 win at home to Jahn Regensburg last Saturday, which kept them three points clear in third place.
  • Coach Hecking switched to a diamond system against Regensburg and also started without an out-and-out striker as Hinterseer dropped to the bench.
  • Centre-back Jung is available again after suspension but Hecking is likely to stick with the back four that started the last game.

Predicted line-up (4-1-2-1-2): Daniel Heuer; Beyer, Letschert, Van Drongelen, Leibold; Fein; Moritz, Schaub; Hunt; Harnik, Jatta

Unavailable: Vagnoman (Injured), Gyamerah (Injured), Dudziak (Injured), Ewerton (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Only leaders Arminia Bielefeld have scored more goals in Bundesliga 2 than Hamburger SV this season, but Hecking's men have not managed a clean sheet on the road since August. Furth have failed to score in just one of their last eight at home, so there should be goals for both teams in this one.
