THE TEAM NEWS

NURNBERG

  • Nurnberg twice came from behind to earn a point in a thrilling 3-3 draw at Darmstadt 98 last Sunday, meaning they are unbeaten in three games.
  • Enrico Valentini injured himself during the warm-up at Darmstadt and has been ruled out for several weeks, so summer signing Oliver Sorg will continue on the right flank.
  • Asger Sorensen and Mikael Ishak also missed the Darmstadt match and are likely to be absent again, and the game will come too soon for Fabian Schleusener to return against his former club.

Predicted line-up (3-5-2): Mathenia; Muhl, Erras, Margreitter; Sorg, Geis, Behrens, Hack, Handwerker; Dovedan, Frey

Unavailable: Schleusener (Injured), Misidjan (Injured), Zrelak (Injured), Fuchs (Injured), Medeiros (Injured), Valentini (Injured)

Doubtful: Ishak (Injured), Sorensen (Injured)

KARLSRUHER SC

  • After three defeats on the spin, Karlsruher SC returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory at home to Sandhausen last Friday.
  • Damian Rossbach is battling to be fit in time after missing the last match through injury but Dirk Carlson should keep his place at left-back anyway.
  • Reserve goalkeeper Sven Muller is the only definite absentee for coach Alois Schwartz, who is likely to name an unchanged side.

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

Unavailable: Muller (Injured)

Doubtful: Rossbach (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Both of these sides have averaged two goals conceded per game this season, with only the bottom two in Bundesliga II having a worse defensive record. Nurnberg's last two games alone have produced 10 goals, while Karlsruher striker Philipp Hofmann has racked up four goals already.
