THE TEAM NEWS

GREUTHER FURTH

  • Eighth-placed Greuther Furth were in good form at home before the winter break, winning five of their last seven league games there.
  • Defenders Mavraj and Caligiuri trained on Monday having left the squad's training camp early because of injuries, but it remains to be seen whether they will start.
  • Young midfielder Tillman has joined from Bayern Munich reserves, while out-of-favour duo Steininger and Abouchabaka have departed.

Predicted line-up (4-1-2-1-2): Burchert; Meyerhofer, Jaeckel, Caligiuri, Wittek; Seguin; Green, Ernst; Nielsen; Hrgota, Keita-Ruel

Unavailable: Parker (Out of favour)

Doubtful: Mavraj (Injured), Caligiuri (Injured)

ST. PAULI

  • Back-to-back home wins before Christmas lifted St. Pauli away from the bottom three, but they have not won an away league match since last March.
  • Coach Luhukay still has a substantial injury list to deal with as Avevor, Conteh, Diarra and Lawrence are still sidelined, but top scorer Diamantakos is among those who are back in contention.
  • Despite those injuries, the club have not made any signings in the transfer window yet, so it could well be the same side that beat Arminia Bielefeld last month.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Himmelmann; Zander, Ohlsson, Ostigard, Buballa; Becker; Miyaichi, Sobota, Buchtmann, Gyokeres; Veerman

Unavailable: Diarra (Injured), Avevor (Injured), Conteh (Injured), Lawrence (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Greuther Furth won 3-1 in the reverse fixture and have also won the last two meetings between the sides in Bavaria. Leitl's men have largely fared well on home soil this season whereas St. Pauli are winless on their travels, so Furth should come out on top again.
