THE TEAM NEWS

HAMBURGER SV

  • Second-placed Hamburger SV had to settle for a point at Jahn Regensburg last Saturday having come from behind and then been in front.
  • Coach Dieter Hecking is set to have the same group available and having named an unchanged line-up last weekend, there could be one or two changes here.
  • Bakery Jatta could be recalled in attack after Martin Harnik's poor performance at Regensburg, while Khaled Narey will be hoping to feature against his former club.

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

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

Doubtful:

GREUTHER FURTH

  • Back-to-back defeats without scoring have seen Greuther Furth slip down the table and they have won just two of their last 16 away Bundesliga II games.
  • Coach Stefan Leitl named just seven players on his bench against Holstein Kiel last Sunday, with Elias Abouchabaka the latest to miss out with a broken nose.
  • Strikers Daniel Steininger and Shawn Parker continue to be left out despite those injuries, while centre-back Marvim Mavraj is set to start against his former side.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Burchert; Sauer, Caligiuri, Mavraj, Wittek; Sarpei; Hrgota, Seguin, Green, Mohr; Keita-Ruel

Unavailable: Meyerhofer (Injured), Ernst (Injured), Bauer (Injured), Steininger (Out of favour), Parker (Out of favour)

Doubtful: Kehr (Injured), Abouchabaka (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Hamburg's form has faltered slightly in recent weeks but they remain unbeaten at home this season, winning their last three games at the Volksparkstadion without conceding a goal. Against a Furth side who have failed to score in their last two games, the hosts will be confident of another shut-out.
