THE TEAM NEWS

HOLSTEIN KIEL

  • Holstein Kiel were beaten 3-1 at Hannover 96 on Monday as they suffered their first back-to-back league defeats since September.
  • Coach Werner is set to be boosted by the return of Neumann and Meffert, who resumed full training this week having missed the last couple of matches.
  • With Serra still sidelined, Lee Jae-Sung is set to lead the line again having netted his first goal since October on Monday.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Gelios; Neumann, Thesker, Wahl, Van den Bergh; Ignjovski; Reese, Muhling, Ozcan, Iyoha; Lee Jae-Sung

Unavailable: Dehm (Injured), Serra (Injured), Eberwein (Injured)

Doubtful: Neumann (Injured), Meffert (Injured)

GREUTHER FURTH

  • Greuther Furth still have an outside chance of breaking into the top three and boosted their hopes with a 2-0 win at home to second-placed Stuttgart last Saturday.
  • That win came at a cost as Wittek suffered a broken arm, so Raum is likely to fill in at left-back as he has done from time to time this season.
  • Wittek's injury takes the total number of absentees in coach Leitl's squad to seven, with wide men Stefaniak and Leweling also joining the list recently.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Burchert; Sauer, Bauer, Caligiuri, Raum; Sarpei, Ernst, Seguin; Hrgota, Nielsen, Tillman

Unavailable: Meyerhofer (Injured), Green (Injured), Mavraj (Injured), Keita-Ruel (Injured), Leweling (Injured), Stefaniak (Injured), Wittek (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Holstein Kiel have found wins hard to come by at home this season and they are yet to register a clean sheet at the Holstein-Stadion. Greuther Furth make the trip with a depleted squad but they have scored 11 times in their last six away outings, so goals are likely at both ends.
