THE TEAM NEWS

SANDHAUSEN

  • Sandhausen have taken just one point from their last three matches although they are unbeaten in three at home, where they have only lost two of their last nine league games.
  • Rurik Gislason should be available again after missing last Sunday's defeat at St. Pauli through illness and could be preferred to Robin Scheu, who failed to impress in his absence.
  • Summer signing Aziz Bouhaddouz has come off the bench in the last three games and is putting pressure on striker Kevin Behrens, who has gone four games without a goal.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Fraisl; Diekmeier, Nauber, Zhirov, Paqarada; Zenga, Frey; Gislason, Turpitz, Engels; Behrens

Unavailable: Kulovits (Injured), Karl (Injured)

Doubtful: Gislason (Illness)

ERZGEBIRGE AUE

  • Erzgebirge Aue climbed up to fourth in the standings with a 4-1 win at home to Dynamo Dresden last Sunday but are yet to taste victory on the road under Dirk Schuster.
  • Dimitrij Nazarov was recalled in attack in place of Christoph Daferner last weekend and will certainly keep his place after scoring twice and doubling his tally for the campaign.
  • Left-back Dennis Kempe made his comeback from injury with a late cameo against Dresden but is not fit enough to start, so Schuster could well name an unchanged side.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Mannel; Kalig, Gonther, Mihojevic, Rizzuto; Riese, Fandrich; Baumgart, Nazarov, Hochscheidt; Testroet

Unavailable: Cacutalua (Injured)

Doubtful: Breitkreuz (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Ten of the 12 meetings between these two sides in the second tier have produced fewer than three goals, as have seven of Sandhausen's eight league games this season. Aue have hit the net just twice in their last three away outings, so another low-scoring encounter is on the cards.
