THE TEAM NEWS

NURNBERG

  • Nurnberg claimed a deserved 1-0 win at home to Osnabruck last Sunday thanks to a late goal, only their second success on home soil in 2019.
  • Loan signing Michael Frey went straight into the side against Osnabruck as coach Damir Canadi made four changes, with Lukas Muhl missing out due to injury.
  • Winger Medeiros has been ruled out after suffering an injury against Osnabruck so captain Hanno Behrens, who was dropped for the first time in nearly four years, is likely to be recalled.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Mathenia; Sorensen, Erras, Jager; Valentini, Geis, Behrens, Handwerker; Hack, Frey, Dovedan

Unavailable: Misidjan (Injured), Zrelak (Injured), Fuchs (Injured), Goden (Injured), Margreitter (Injured), Medeiros (Injured)

Doubtful: Schleusener (Injured), Muhl (Injured)

HEIDENHEIM

  • After a bright start to the season, Heidenheim travel to Bavaria having suffered back-to-back defeats and dropped into the bottom half of the table.
  • Summer signing Stefan Schimmer was handed his full debut against Sandhausen last Sunday but failed to impress, so David Otto or Patrick Schmidt could be preferred up front.
  • Jonas Fohrenbach could also be recalled at left-back in place of Norman Theuerkauf, while Maximilian Thiel remains the only absentee for coach Frank Schmidt.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Muller; Busch, Beermann, Husing, Fohrenbach; Leipertz, Dorsch, Griesbeck, Schnatterer; Thomalla, Otto

Unavailable: Thiel (Injured)

Doubtful:

MATCH ANALYSIS

Heidenheim have conceded seven goals in their opening four league games and there have been three or more goals in eight of their last nine going back to last season. Nurnberg have been involved in a couple of high-scoring games already this term so over 2.5 goals looks appealing.
