THE TEAM NEWS

HOLSTEIN KIEL

  • Holstein Kiel could not build on their first back-to-back wins of the season as they went down to a 2-1 defeat at Arminia Bielefeld last Sunday.
  • Midfielder Aleksandar Ignjovski returned to the squad against Bielefeld and could make his comeback from injury after six weeks out, but David Atanga and Jannik Dehm remain sidelined.
  • Finn Porath will be hoping to feature against the club he left in the summer, while Seo Young-Jae could start at left-back having replaced Johannes van den Bergh early in the second half last weekend.

Predicted line-up (4-1-2-1-2): Gelios; Neumann, Thesker, Wahl, Seo Young-Jae; Meffert; Muhling, Ozcan; Lee Jae-Sung; Serra, Iyoha

Unavailable: Atanga (Injured), Dehm (Injured)

Doubtful:

HAMBURGER SV

  • A stoppage-time equaliser denied Hamburger SV victory at Wehen Wiesbaden last Sunday and means they are now only top thanks to their superior goal difference.
  • Martin Harnik and captain Aaron Hunt have been ruled out again having missed the last game with thigh injuries, while right-backs Josha Vagnoman and Jan Gyamerah are long-term absentees.
  • Coach Dieter Hecking has no fresh injury concerns so he is not expected to make many changes, with midfielder David Kinsombi set to face his former club.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Daniel Heuer; Narey, Jung, Van Drongelen, Leibold; Dudziak, Fein, Kinsombi; Jatta, Hintersser, Kittel

Unavailable: Vagnoman (Injured), Gyamerah (Injured), Harnik (Injured), Hunt (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Holstein Kiel have been inconsistent at home so far this term but one common feature has been both teams scoring. Leaders Hamburger SV have recorded just one clean sheet in their last nine away league matches, so expect blows to be exchanged in this northern derby.
