THE TEAM NEWS

KARLSRUHER SC

  • Having started the season with two wins, Karlsruher SC have lost their last three league matches, conceding nine goals in the process.
  • Having used a 4-4-2 formation up to now, coach Alois Schwartz is reported to be considering a change of system as he prepares to face the club where he spent three years as coach.
  • Left-back Damian Rossbach has been ruled out after suffering an injury in the 3-0 defeat at Osnabruck so summer signing Dick Carlson could make his first start.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Uphoff; Thiede, Gordon, Pisot, Carlson; Grozurek, Frode, Wanitzek, Lorenz; Hofmann, Djuricin

Unavailable: Muller (Injured), Rossbach (Injured)

Doubtful:

SANDHAUSEN

  • Three consecutive wins have moved Sandhausen up to third in the table and they are also unbeaten in their last seven away Bundesliga II matches.
  • Centre-backs Tim Kister and Roman Hauk returned to full training over the international break but the former is unlikely to be under consideration for the first team just yet after a lengthy lay-off.
  • Midfielder Besar Halimi arrived on transfer deadline day and is one of the candidates to take the place of Philipp Forster, who joined Stuttgart on the same day.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Fraisl; Diekmeier, Nauber, Zhirov, Paqarada; Linsmayer, Zenga; Gislason, Turpitz, Engels; Behrens

Unavailable: Kulovits (Injured), Karl (Injured)
