THE TEAM NEWS

NURNBERG

  • Nurnberg looked to have earned a point after coming from 2-0 down to level at Sandhausen last Friday but they left empty-handed after conceding in the 89th minute.
  • Striker Michael Frey has signed on loan from Fenerbahce and could go straight into the side.
  • Frey's chances of starting are increased by the fact that Adam Zrelak is sidelined, Fabian Schleusener lacks match fitness and Mikael Ishak is yet to score this season.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Mathenia; Sorg, Sorensen, Muhl, Handwerker; Geis; Dovedan, Behrens, Kerk, Medeiros; Frey

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

Doubtful: Schleusener (Injured)

OSNABRUCK

  • Osnabruck will be on a high after their impressive 4-0 win at home to Darmstadt 98 on Monday and the newcomers will be out to prove that it was not a one-off.
  • Midfielder Alexander Riemann returned to full training this week and could travel to Bavaria but defensive quintet Bryan Henning, Konstantin Engel, Maurice Trapp, Simon Haubrock and Bashkim Ajdini will be absent again.
  • Loan signing Joost van Aken went straight into the starting XI in a back five against Darmstadt and coach Daniel Thioune is expected to keep faith with the same line-up.

Predicted line-up (5-4-1): Korber; Agu, Gugganig, Heyer, Van Aken, Wolze; Ouahim, Taffertshofer, Blacha, Amenyido; Heider

Unavailable: Trapp (Injured), Henning (Injured), Engel (Injured), Ajdini (Injured), Haubrock (Injured)

Doubtful: Riemann (Injured), Schmidt (Injured), Klaas (Injured)

MATCH ANALYSIS

These teams were two leagues apart last year but it is promoted Osnabruck who have made the better start to this season. VfL have kept back-to-back clean sheets in the league and will try to keep things tight against Nurnberg, who have scored more than once in only one of their last 15 home games.
