THE TEAM NEWS

GREUTHER FURTH

  • Greuther Furth moved up to fourth place with a 2-0 win away to Jahn Regensburg last Friday, their fourth victory in five matches.
  • Captain Caligiuri is suspended having picked up his fifth caution of the season in Regensburg, so Jaeckel is set to be recalled in the centre of defence.
  • Midfielder Green is doubtful after missing the last game because of an ankle injury, while loan signing Beijmo is likely to be among the substitutes.

Predicted line-up (4-1-2-1-2): Burchert; Sauer, Jaeckel, Mavraj, Wittek; Seguin; Stefaniak, Ernst; Nielsen; Hrgota, Keita-Ruel

Unavailable: Caligiuri (Suspended)

Doubtful: Meyerhofer (Injured), Green (Injured)

HANNOVER 96

  • Two late goals looked to have earned Hannover 96 a precious three points at home to Wehen Wiesbaden last Saturday but a stoppage-time equaliser meant they got just one.
  • Franke and Guidetti have both been ruled out after injuring themselves in the warm-up last weekend, and Weydandt will also miss out again.
  • Teuchert is expected to be preferred to Ducksch up front after coming on and scoring against Wiesbaden, while deadline-day signing Ochs could make his debut.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Zieler; Korb, Elez, Felipe, Horn; Anton, Kaiser; Maina, Stendera, Haraguchi; Teuchert

Unavailable: Hubers (Injured), Hansen (Injured), Weydandt (Injured), Franke (Injured), Guidetti (Injured), Tarnat (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Before the start of the season, few would have expected Greuther Furth to be 10 places and nine points ahead of Hannover. Furth have been particularly impressive at home, where they have won six of their last eight league games, and they should be fancied against a Hannover side winless in four.
