THE TEAM NEWS

WEHEN WIESBADEN

  • A stoppage-time equaliser rescued a point for Wehen Wiesbaden at Hannover last Saturday and kept them above opponents Bochum in the relegation play-off place.
  • Coach Rehm welcome captain Mrowca back from suspension but long-term absentees Bartels, Schonfeld, Schwadorf and Wachs remain sidelined.
  • Mrowca is set to replace Kuhn at right-back in a reversal of the only change last weekend, while January signing Friede is still waiting for his debut.

Predicted line-up (5-4-1): Lindner; Mrowca, Mockenhaupt, Dams, Rocker, Schwede; Aigner, Kyereh, Chato, Dittgen; Schaffler

Unavailable: Bartels (Injured), Schonfeld (Injured), Schwadorf (Injured), Wachs (Injured)

Doubtful:

BOCHUM

  • Bochum suffered their third consecutive defeat at home to Hamburger SV on Monday evening and they have only won one of their last 17 Bundesliga 2 away games.
  • First-choice keeper Riemann returns from suspension so midfielders Bapoh and Maier are the only expected absentees for coach Reis.
  • Centre-back Leitsch made his first appearance in 17 months against Hamburg and should get another chance despite the arrival of loan signing Lampropoulos.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Riemann; Gamboa, Decarli, Leitsch, Danilo Soares; Tesche, Janelt, Losilla; Zoller, Ganvoula, Weilandt

Unavailable: Bapoh (Injured)

Doubtful: Maier (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

These two sides produced a six-goal thriller in their first-ever meeting in August and goals are on the cards again on Sunday. Bochum have the joint worst defence in the division, averaging nearly two goals conceded per game, while Wiesbaden have failed to score in just one of their last seven.
