- Hannover 96 were beaten 2-1 by fellow relegated side Stuttgart in last Friday's curtain-raiser at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, in coach Mirko Slomka's first competitive match since returning to the dugout.
- Slomka included three of his summer signings in his starting line-up last Friday, with Ron-Robert Zieler preferred to Michael Esser in goal and Marcel Franke and Sebastian Jung lining up in the back four.
- Left-back Matthias Ostrzolek is suspended after his sending off at Stuttgart, Cedric Teuchert and Timo Hubers remain sidelined, and Brazilian duo Walace and Jonathas were left out of the squad last week.
Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Meyer; Hein, Nachreiner, Correia, Okoroji; Saller, Besuschkow, Geipl, Stolze; Schneider, Gruttner
Unavailable: Knipping (Injured), Wekesser (Injured)
- Jahn Regensburg got their campaign off to a positive start with a deserved 3-1 victory at home to Bochum last Sunday, and they have lost just two of their last 15 matches on the road in Bundesliga II.
- New coach Mersad Selimbegovic included four summer recruits in his starting line-up for his first game in charge, while midfielder Tom Baack came off the bench and netted a goal on his debut against his former side.
- Young winger Nicolas Wahling signed from Hoffenheim's reserve team on Wednesday but he will probably have to be patient and wait for his chance, with plenty of competition for places in the wide areas.
Jahn Regensburg had a largely good away record in Bundesliga II last season but they only managed two clean sheets. This will be a tough task for them against a Hannover side who will be determined to pick up their first win of the season, but both teams to score looks a good bet.
Betting tip: (Yes) Both teams to score
