THE TEAM NEWS

STUTTGART

  • Stuttgart are the new leaders in Bundesliga II after winning 3-2 at Jahn Regensburg last Saturday, maintaining their unbeaten record this season.
  • Striker Mario Gomez and left-back Borna Sosa are available again after being laid low by illness last week, and both are in contention to start.
  • Gomez or Hamadi Al Ghaddioui, who came off the bench to score against Regensburg, could start ahead of youngster Silas Wamangituka, who is yet to score in three appearances.

Predicted line-up (4-1-2-1-2): Kobel; Stenzel, Badstuber, Kempf, Sosa; Mangala; Forster, Klement; Didavi; Al Ghaddioui, Gonzalez

Unavailable: Kalajdzic (Injured), Kaminski (Injured), Mack (Injured)

Doubtful:

GREUTHER FURTH

  • Greuther Furth are unbeaten in Bundesliga II since the opening weekend of the season, although they left it late to come from behind and beat Wehen Wiesbaden 2-1 last time out.
  • Daniel Keita-Ruel is likely to be recalled in attack after coming on and netting his third goal of the season against Wiesbaden, while Tobias Mohr could also return on the left wing.
  • Coach Stefan Leitl has no new personnel concerns so no changes are expected in the other areas of the pitch, with Hans Nunoo Sarpei set to start against the club he left in the summer.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Burchert; Sauer, Caligiuri, Mavraj, Wittek; Sarpei; Hrgota, Seguin, Green, Mohr; Keita-Ruel

Unavailable: Meyerhofer (Injured), Ernst (Injured), Steininger (Out of favour), Parker (Out of favour)

Doubtful: Kehr (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Stuttgart have won all three of their home games this season but they are yet to register a clean sheet at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, with all three finishing 2-1. Greuther Furth have scored in each of their last seven away league matches, so the visitors should at least nick a goal if nothing else.
