THE TEAM NEWS

HAMBURGER SV

  • Hamburger SV held on to second place despite only taking four points from their final four games of the year, but they had won six home league games on the spin before that.
  • Coach Hecking has signed right-back Beyer on loan from former club Borussia Monchengladbach, while Schaub and Pohjanpalo have also arrived on loan from Bundesliga clubs.
  • Captain Hunt could return to the side after coming through a friendly last week, but winger Harnik is doubtful and right-backs Vagnoman and Gyamerah remain sidelined.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Daniel Heuer; Beyer, Letschert, Van Drongelen, Leibold; Dudziak, Hunt, Schaub; Narey, Hinterseer, Jatta

Unavailable: Vagnoman (Injured), Gyamerah (Injured), Jairo Samperio (Injured)

Doubtful: Harnik (Injured)

NURNBERG

  • Nurnberg will be hoping 2020 is significantly better than the previous year, particularly when it comes to their away form as they won just three competitive games on the road in 2019.
  • Goalkeepers Mathenia and Lukse are fit again but Dornebusch, who was signed in November to cover for them, injured himself during the team's training camp.
  • Coach Keller has boosted his defensive options with the loan signings of Mavropanos and Heise from Arsenal and Norwich respectively, and the former could replace the injured Valentini.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Mathenia; Sorg, Sorensen, Mavropanos, Handwerker; Behrens, Geis; Schleusener, Dovedan, Hack; Frey

Unavailable: Misidjan (Injured), Klandt (Injured), Iuri Medeiros (Injured), Valentini (Injured), Dornebusch (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Hamburg were clear 4-0 winners in the reverse fixture in August and Hecking's men have won six of their last seven league games at home, scoring 18 goals in the process. Nurnberg have conceded 10 in their last four on the road so it could well be another high-scoring win for HSV.
