THE TEAM NEWS

KARLSRUHER SC

  • Karlsruher SC are only above bottom-of-the-table Dynamo Dresden on goal difference after losing 3-1 at Heidenheim last Saturday.
  • January signing Ben-Hatira is suspended following his dismissal at Heidenheim and Kobald is also in the sin bin due to yellow card accumulation.
  • Coach Eichner is expected to revert to a more familiar formation after experimenting with a back three against Heidenheim.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Uphoff; Stiefler, Gordon, Pisot, Carlson; Groiss, Gondorf; Camoglu, Wanitzek, Grozurek; Hofmann

Unavailable: Choi Kyoung-Rok (Injured), Lorenz (Injured), Djuricin (Injured), Ben-Hatira (Suspended), Kobald (Suspended)

Doubtful:

DARMSTADT 98

  • Darmstadt's four-match winning run ended with a goalless draw at home to Bochum last Saturday but it extended their unbeaten run in the league to 10 games.
  • Hohn suffered an ankle fracture in training before last weekend's match and will be out for several weeks, joining fellow centre-back Wittek on the treatment table.
  • Otherwise coach Grammozis has a full squad to pick from and he is likely to name an unchanged starting line-up, although he does have plenty of options from the bench.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Schuhen; Bader, Dumic, Rapp, Holland; Palsson, Stark; Honsak, Mehlem, Kempe; Dursun

Unavailable: Wittek (Injured), Hohn (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Karlsruher SC have been struggling for goals in recent months, finding the net just once in their last four home games. In-form Darmstadt 96 have conceded just one goal in their last four matches, so it looks like being another low-scoring affair at the Wildparkstadion.
