THE TEAM NEWS

HAMBURGER SV

  • Hamburger SV had to settle for a point at Arminia Bielefeld on Monday but they remain top, one point ahead of their opponents.
  • Gideon Jung was only fit enough for the bench on Monday but is expected to start this time and coach Dieter Hecking is also hoping to have captain Aaron Hunt available.
  • Fit-again Christoph Moritz was among the substitutes against Bielefeld while loanee Martin Harnik will be hoping to keep his place against his former club.

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

Unavailable: Ewerton (Injured), Gyamerah (Injured)

Doubtful: Hunt (Injured)

STUTTGART

  • Stuttgart's first defeat of the season was followed by their second on Sunday as they were beaten 1-0 at home by Holstein Kiel.
  • Holger Badstuber is suspended after being sent off in the last match so either Maxime Awoudja or Nathaniel Phillips will partner Marc Oliver Kempf at the back.
  • Coach Tim Walter made six changes to his side last weekend, with youngster Roberto Massimo making his full debut, but some of those who were dropped could be recalled here.

Predicted line-up (4-1-2-1-2): Kobel; Stenzel, Awoudja, Kempf, Insua; Karazor; Mangala, Ascacibar; Forster; Gonzalez, Wamangituka

Unavailable: Kalajdzic (Injured), Kaminski (Injured), Mack (Injured), Didavi (Injured), Badstuber (Suspended)

Doubtful: Sosa (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Leaders Hamburg also boast the best defensive record in Bundesliga II and have kept a clean sheet in their last four home games. Stuttgart have only let in two more goals but they have scored just two themselves in their last three outings, so this is set to be a tight top-of-the-table clash.
