THE TEAM NEWS

ST. PAULI

  • St. Pauli might still be wondering how they did not come away from Dresden with three points in their last match having been 3-0 up after half an hour, only to end up drawing.
  • Midfielders Johannes Flum and Rico Benatelli both featured in a friendly during the international break but are seemingly not in coach Jos Luhukay's plans, particularly with Youba Diarra joining on loan.
  • Loanee Matt Penney is available again after suspension while Luhukay has added another right-back to his squad in Sebastian Olsson, with Luca Zander and Park Yi-Young still sidelined.

Predicted line-up (3-4-2-1): Himmelmann; Lawrence, Carstens, Hoffmann; Miyaichi, Becker, Knoll, Buballa; Daehli, Sobota; Diamantakos

Unavailable: Ziereis (Injured), Veerman (Injured), Tashchy (Injured), Avevor (Injured), Park Yi-Young (Injured), Zander (Injured)

HAMBURGER SV

  • Hamburger SV went into the international break two points clear at the top of Bundesliga II having dropped just two points so far this season.
  • Experienced striker Martin Harnik joined on loan from Werder Bremen on transfer deadline day and scored in a friendly against Bundesliga side Wolfsburg last week.
  • Jan Gyamerah suffered a horror injury during training on Wednesday which will keep him out for a lengthy period, leaving coach Dieter Hecking without a recognised right-back in his squad.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Daniel Heuer; Narey, Jung, Van Drongelen, Leibold; Fein, Kinsombi, Kittel; Harnik, Hinterseer, Jatta

Unavailable: Ewerton (Injured), Moritz (Injured), Gyamerah (Injured)

Doubtful: Letschert (Injured)

MATCH ANALYSIS

Hamburg won 4-0 last time they visited the Millerntor in March and they go into this city derby full of confidence having won their last four league games. Top scorer Sonny Kittel has netted four goals in that time and is worth a punt against a side who are yet to keep a clean sheet this season.
