THE TEAM NEWS

NURNBERG

  • Nurnberg parted company with coach Damir Canadi this week after only 170 days in the job, following a run of just one win in eight league games.
  • Caretaker boss Marek Mintal has a goalkeeping crisis as Christian Mathenia, Andreas Lukse, Patric Klandt and youngster Jonas Wendlinger are all out injured, so 18-year-old Benedikt Willert is set to make his second start.
  • There are injury concerns in other areas, too, with centre-back Georg Margreitter still nursing an Achilles problem and Fabian Schleusener working his way back to fitness, but Enrico Valentini should return after illness.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Willert; Valentini, Muhl, Sorensen, Handwerker; Jager; Dovedan, Geis, Behrens, Hack; Frey

Unavailable: Misidjan (Injured), Zrelak (Injured), Mathenia (Injured), Sorg (Injured), Lukse (Injured), Klandt (Injured)

Doubtful: Schleusener (Injured), Margreitter (Injured)

ARMINIA BIELEFELD

  • Arminia Bielefeld claimed their third win in four Bundesliga 2 games at home to Holstein Kiel last Sunday to draw level on points with Hamburger SV at the top of the table.
  • Midfielder Tom Schutz will be assessed after going off injured in his first start of the season against Kiel but he is likely to lose his place anyway with Manuel Prietl returning from suspension.
  • Striker Sven Schipplock is still waiting to make his first appearance of the season, while Nils Quaschner and Brian Behrendt are also recovering from long-term injuries.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ortega Moreno; Brunner, Pieper, Nilsson, Hartherz; Prietl, Yabo, Hartel; Clauss, Klos, Voglsammer

Unavailable: Quaschner (Injured), Behrendt (Injured)

Doubtful: Schipplock (Injured), Schutz (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Nurnberg will be hoping a change of coach can trigger an upturn in their form but interim boss Mintal faces a daunting debut against Arminia Bielefeld. Neuhaus' men have the best away record in the division and given Nurnberg's goalkeeping crisis, the visitors will be looking to get an early goal.
