THE TEAM NEWS

KARLSRUHER SC

  • Two late goals rescued a point for Karlsruher SC at St. Pauli last Saturday as they recorded their sixth consecutive draw in the league.
  • Striker Marco Djuricin will be assessed after missing the last game through illness, but the summer signing is yet to make a start this season anyway.
  • Manuel Stiefler could return in midfield after missing last weekend's match to attend the birth of his child, but Marc Lorenz should keep his place on the wing after scoring.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Uphoff; Thiede, Gordon, Pisot, Rossbach; Wanitzek, Frode, Stiefler, Lorenz; Choi Kyoung-Rok, Pourie

Unavailable: Muller (Injured)

Doubtful: Djuricin (Illness)

ERZGEBIRGE AUE

  • Erzgebirge Aue are fourth in the table going into Matchday 13 but only five of their 19 points have been collected on the road.
  • Marko Mihojevic and Soren Gonther will start together again as the only fit centre-backs, with Steve Breitkreuz, Malcolm Cacutalua and Fabian Kalig all sidelined.
  • Fellow centre-back Filip Kusic is also nursing an injury and the game is likely to come too soon for Erik Majetschak, but coach Dirk Schuster - who spent six years as a player at Karlsruher - has no fresh concerns.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Mannel; Rizzuto, Mihojevic, Gonther, Kempe; Riese, Fandrich; Baumgart, Nazarov, Hochscheidt; Testroet

Unavailable: Cacutalua (Injured), Breitkreuz (Injured), Kalig (Injured)

Doubtful: Majetschak (Injured), Kusic (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Karlsruher are unbeaten in seven league games, drawing the last six, but they have only registered one clean sheet all season and have the worst defensive record in the top half of the table. Aue have let in 11 goals in their last five away games so a clean sheet is unlikely for both teams.
