THE TEAM NEWS

WEHEN WIESBADEN

  • Promoted side Wehen Wiesbaden ended the year second from bottom but 16 of their 17 points have come in their last 11 matches.
  • Long-term absentees Bartels, Schonfeld, Schwadorf and Wachs are still not ready to return but Aigner and Tietz, who returned to the squad in the last game, are fit again.
  • Top scorer Schaffler is set to return up front having been suspended for the last game before Christmas, while new signing Friede could make his debut.

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

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

Doubtful:

ERZGEBIRGE AUE

  • Erzgebirge Aue are fifth in the table after ending the year with back-to-back wins but they have not won away from home since the first game of the season.
  • With centre-backs Breitkreuz and Kalig expected to miss the rest of the season due to knee problems, Aue have brought in Rasmussen on loan from Fiorentina.
  • Rasmussen is set to go straight into the starting line-up, particularly with Gonther doubtful because of illness, but otherwise it will be a familiar side.

Predicted line-up (3-4-1-2): Mannel; Mihojevic, Gonther, Rasmussen; Rizzuto, Fandrich, Riese, Kempe; Nazarov; Kruger, Hochscheidt

Unavailable: Breitkreuz (Injured), Kalig (Injured)

Doubtful: Gonther (Illness)

THE PREDICTION

Promotion hopefuls Erzgebirge Aue will be looking to improve on their away record in the second half of the season and this is a good place to start. Wehen Wiesbaden have managed just one win at home all season so the visitors should come away with at least a point here.
