THE TEAM NEWS

HEIDENHEIM

  • Heidenheim held leaders Arminia Bielefeld to a goalless draw last time out and they have lost just one of their last eight Bundesliga 2 matches.
  • Coach Schmidt will again be without Thiel, Thomalla and Griesbeck but he has no fresh injury or suspension issues to deal with.
  • Fohrenbach came in for Griesbeck against Bielefeld, with Theuerkauf moving back into a defensive midfield role, and Schmidt is unlikely to change much for the final game of the year.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Muller; Busch, Husing, Mainka, Fohrenbach; Theuerkauf, Dorsch; Schnatterer, Kerschbaumer, Leipertz; Kleindienst

Unavailable: Thiel (Injured), Thomalla (Injured), Griesbeck (Injured)

Doubtful:

OSNABRUCK

  • Osnabruck made it three wins in a row and eight league games unbeaten as they dispatched struggling Dynamo Dresden 3-0 at home last Sunday.
  • Agu is fit again and fellow full-back Engel could be included in the squad for the first time this season but top scorer Alvarez, who was only on the bench against Dresden, is doubtful.
  • Centre-back Trapp is also fit again, although he was not included in the final squad last weekend as coach Thioune's lengthy injury list begins to shorten.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Kuhn; Ajdini, Van Aken, Heyer, Agu; Henning, Taffertshofer; Ouahim, Blacha, Schmidt; Friesenbichler

Unavailable: Gugganig (Injured), Klaas (Injured), Amenyido (Injured)

Doubtful: Engel (Injured), Haubrock (Injured), Konrad (Injured), Korber (Injured), Alvarez (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Two sides in good form who are knocking on the door of the top three meet at the Voith-Arena. However, only nine of Osnabruck's 26 points have come on the road, while Heidenheim have been rock-solid at home in recent months, so the hosts should edge this one.
