THE TEAM NEWS

HEIDENHEIM

  • Heidenheim registered their first league win since the opening weekend of the season last Saturday, comfortably beating Holstein Kiel 3-0 at home.
  • Tim Kleindienst made a dream start to his second spell at the club as he scored two of the goals, while fellow new signing Konstantin Kerschbaumer also enjoyed a successful debut.
  • Kleindienst replaced Denis Thomalla, who missed out due to a hip problem, and coach Frank Schmidt is likely to stick with the same starting line-up.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Muller; Busch, Beermann, Mainka, Theuerkauf; Schnatterer, Dorsch, Griesbeck, Kerschbaumer; Leipertz, Kleindienst

Unavailable: Thiel (Injured)

Doubtful: Thomalla (Injured)

DARMSTADT 98

  • Darmstadt were in front, behind and then in front again before ultimately drawing 3-3 at home to Nurnberg last Sunday, leaving them winless in four games.
  • Victor Palsson is available again after suspension so coach Dimitrios Grammozis must choose whether to recall him or keep faith with new signing Paik Seung-Ho, while Tim Skarke is set to start against his former club.
  • Patrik Pfeiffer is back in training following his recent injury but long-term quartet Braydon Manu, Felix Platte, Marcel Schuhen and Mathias Honsak remain sidelined.

Predicted line-up (4-4-1-1): Stritzel; Herrmann, Dumic, Hohn, Holland; Heller, Palsson, Schnellhardt, Skarke; Mehlem; Dursun

Unavailable: Manu (Injured), Platte (Injured), Schuhen (Injured), Honsak (Injured)

Doubtful: Pfeiffer (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Four of the six previous meetings between these two sides in the second tier have ended in draws and there are just two points separating them going into this one. Darmstadt have also drawn three of their six league games this season and would probably a settle for another point here.
