THE TEAM NEWS

HANNOVER 96

  • Hannover 96 remain very much in the relegation fight after losing 1-0 at leaders Arminia Bielefeld last Sunday, their first defeat in four games.
  • Haraguchi is suspended after picking up his fifth booking of the campaign against Bielefeld but captain Bakalorz, who missed that game through illness, is set to take his place.
  • Top scorer Ducksch was left completely out of the squad last weekend but fellow striker Weydandt made his return from injury.

Predicted line-up (3-4-1-2): Zieler; Hubers, Anton, Elez; Jung, Kaiser, Bakalorz, Horn; Teuchert; Maina, Guidetti

Unavailable: Hansen (Injured), Tarnat (Injured), Felipe (Injured), Haraguchi (Suspended)

Doubtful: Franke (Injured)

HOLSTEIN KIEL

  • Holstein Kiel's three-match winning run ended with a 1-0 defeat at home to Heidenheim last Saturday, leaving them eight points off the top three.
  • Top scorer Serra, who only recently returned from injury, has been ruled out after limping off against Heidenheim so Iyoha is set to be recalled up front.
  • Coach Werner also has concerns in the right-back department with Dehm still sidelined and Neumann a doubt, while there is also a question mark over Lee Jae-Sung.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Gelios; Todorovic, Thesker, Wahl, Van den Bergh; Ignjovski; Reese, Muhling, Ozcan, Porath; Iyoha

Unavailable: Dehm (Injured), Serra (Injured)

Doubtful: Lee Jae-Sung (Injured), Neumann (Injured), Meffert (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Hannover have struggled at home this season and have only registered one clean sheet but they have at least scored themselves in each of their last six league games at the HDI Arena. Holstein Kiel have not drawn a blank on the road since September, so expect goals at both ends in this one.
