THE TEAM NEWS

HAMBURGER SV

  • Hamburger SV suffered their first defeat of the season at the hands of local rivals St. Pauli on Monday night, which saw them knocked off top spot in the table.
  • Coach Dieter Hecking is likely to freshen things up after Monday's defeat, with the likes of captain Aaron Hunt, Jeremy Dudziak and recent signing Martin Harnik waiting in the wings.
  • Timo Letschert is back in full training but fellow centre-back and summer signing Ewerton remains unavailable along with Christoph Moritz and Jan Gyamerah.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Daniel Heuer; Vagnoman, Jung, Van Drongelen, Leibold; Fein, Hunt, Dudziak; Kittel, Hinterseer, Jatta

Unavailable: Ewerton (Injured), Moritz (Injured), Gyamerah (Injured)

Doubtful: Letschert (Injured)

ERZGEBIRGE AUE

  • Erzgebirge Aue moved up to fifth in the table with a 1-0 win at home to Osnabruck last time out as their impressive start to the season continued.
  • Calogero Rizzuto is suspended after being sent off against Osnabruck so Filip Kusic is likely to be recalled at left-back with Dennis Kempe lacking match fitness.
  • Coach Dirk Schuster is not expected to make any other changes to his line-up as he looks to extend his unbeaten start in his third game in charge.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Mannel; Kalig, Gonther, Mihojevic, Kusic; Riese, Fandrich; Baumgart, Nazarov, Hochscheidt; Testroet

Unavailable: Cacutalua (Injured), Rizzuto (Suspended)

Doubtful: Breitkreuz (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Hamburg will be looking to bounce back from their first defeat of the season but Erzgebirge Aue will be no pushovers having made a strong start themselves. HSV have conceded just once at home while Aue's last three matches have produced three goals, so this could be a tight, low-scoring affair.
