THE TEAM NEWS

KARLSRUHER SC

  • Kalrsruher SC will be hoping to bounce back from their 5-1 defeat at home to Greuther Furth last Saturday, their heaviest loss of the season.
  • Having named the same starting line-up in the last three games, Schwartz is almost certain to freshen things up as he looks to end the year on a high.
  • That could mean starts for the likes of Frode, Pourie and Grozurek, but winger Choi Kyoung-Rok is ruled out due to a cruciate ligament injury.

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

Unavailable: Muller (Injured), Choi Kyoung-Rok (Injured)

Doubtful:

WEHEN WIESBADEN

  • Wehen Wiesbaden missed the chance to move out of the bottom three as they lost 3-1 at relegation rivals St. Pauli last Saturday, and they have won just one of their last eight games.
  • Top scorer Schaffler, who has netted 12 of the team's 20 goals in Bundesliga 2 this season, is suspended having picked up his fifth yellow card last weekend, so loanee Knoll could make his first start.
  • Otherwise it will be a familiar-looking line-up, with none of the six long-term absentees expected to return but no fresh injury concerns.

Predicted line-up (5-4-1): Lindner; Ajani, Mockenhaupt, Dams, Chato, Dittgen; Aigner, Titsch-Rivero, Mrowca, Kyereh; Knoll

Unavailable: Bartels (Injured), Schonfeld (Injured), Schwadorf (Injured), Wachs (Injured), Tietz (Injured), Kuhn (Injured), Schaffler (Suspended)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

These two teams have the joint-worst defensive record in Bundesliga 2, with Karlsruher SC recording just one clean sheet all season. Schwartz's men have scored in all of their home games, though, so a clean sheet looks unlikely for both teams – despite Wiesbaden missing their top scorer.
