THE TEAM NEWS

AUGSBURG

  • Augsburg parted company with coach Schmidt on Monday following a run of seven defeats in their last nine Bundesliga matches.
  • Former Bayer Leverkusen boss Herrlich has succeeded him and it remains to be seen how much he will change things around for his debut.
  • Luthe was preferred to regular number one Koubek against Bayern last weekend and is expected to keep his place, while Uduokhai will be hoping to feature against his parent club.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Luthe; Framberger, Gouweleeuw, Jedvaj, Max; Richter, Khedira, Baier, Vargas; Finnbogason, Niederlechner

Unavailable: Asta (Injured), Giefer (Injured)

Doubtful:

WOLFSBURG

  • Wolfsburg's unbeaten run of eight matches in all competitions ended with a 2-1 defeat at home to Shakhtar Donetsk in the first leg of their Europa League last 16 tie on Thursday.
  • Coach Glasner is without the services of top scorer Weghorst for this one as he has collected five yellow cards, so Ginczek will lead the line.
  • There are unlikely to be many other changes from the side that started on Thursday, with right-back Mbabu likely to miss out again.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Casteels; Steffen, Brooks, Knoche, Paulo Otavio; Schlager, Arnold, Gerhardt; Mehmedi, Ginczek, Brekalo

Unavailable: Ignacio Camacho (Injured), William (Injured), Guilavogui (Injured), Weghorst (Suspended)

Doubtful: Ignacio Camacho (Injured), William (Injured), Guilavogui (Injured), Weghorst (Suspended)

THE PREDICTION

Augsburg will be praying a change in the dugout can reverse their woeful form. The Bavarians have won just one of their last nine games so Wolfsburg, who are in good form in the league, should prove too strong – although the new coach factor could see the hosts avoid defeat.
