THE TEAM NEWS

STUTTGART

  • Stuttgart extended their lead at the top of Bundesliga II to three points last weekend with a late 1-0 win at third-placed Arminia Bielefeld, their fourth straight victory.
  • Philipp Klement and Tanguy Coulibaly, who both missed the last game, have been ruled out while Gonzalo Castro and Silas Wamangituka could also miss out again.
  • Nicolas Gonzalez is nursing a knock so Hamadi Al Ghaddioui, who scored his third goal of the season at Bielefeld, is set to lead the line again.

Predicted line-up (4-3-2-1): Kobel; Stenzel, Badstuber, Kempf, Insua; Mangala, Karazor, Ascacibar; Forster, Didavi; Al Ghaddioui

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

Doubtful: Castro (Injured), Wamangituka (Injured), Gonzalez (Injured)

WEHEN WIESBADEN

  • Wehen Wiesbaden finally picked up their first win of the season at home to fellow promoted side Osnabruck last Friday, but they remain bottom of the table.
  • Loanee Jan-Christoph Bartels was handed his first start in goal against Osnabruck but suffered a serious injury and will be out for a number of months, so the club have signed free agent Heinz Lindner.
  • Bartels joins a lengthy injury list and centre-back Benedikt Rocker is still suspended, so coach Rudiger Rehm is unlikely to make any outfield changes, although captain Sebastian Mrowca should be fit again.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Lindner; Dams, Mockenhaupt, Medic; Kuhn, Mrowca, Lorch, Niemeyer; Aigner, Schaffler, Dittgen

Unavailable: Schonfeld (Injured), Schwadof (Injured), Wachs (Injured), Tietz (Injured), Ajani (Injured), Schwede (Injured), Bartels (Injured), Rocker (Suspended)

Doubtful: Mrowca (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Wehen Wiesbaden's first win of the campaign will have done them the world of good but they face a tough ask to get anything here. Leaders Stuttgart remain unbeaten this season and have a 100 per cent record at home, although all of their wins have been by tight margins.
