THE TEAM NEWS

FORTUNA DUSSELDORF

  • Fortuna Dusseldorf parted company with long-serving coach Funkel on Wednesday following the 3-0 loss to Bayer Leverkusen, which left them bottom of the table.
  • Rosler has replaced Funkel in what is his first coaching job in Germany and he will be hoping to call on goalkeeper Steffen, who has missed the last two games through injury.
  • As well as Rosler, midfielder Berisha could make his debut after joining on loan from Lazio but Bodzek, Thommy and Skrzybski have all been ruled out.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Steffen; Zimmermann, Ayhan, Hoffmann, Suttner; Berisha, Morales, Fink; Kownacki, Hennings, Ampomah

Unavailable: Karaman (Injured), Bodzek (Injured), Thommy (Injured), Skrzybski (Injured)

Doubtful: Steffen (Injured)

EINTRACHT FRANKFURT

  • Eintracht Frankfurt have made a strong start to the year, following up their 2-1 win at Hoffenheim with an impressive 2-0 victory at home to leaders RB Leipzig last weekend.
  • Coach Hutter has no new injury concerns and could name the same team for the third match running, although fit-again Hasebe and Kamada are options.
  • Dost has recovered from an illness that he had earlier in the week and is set to be preferred to Goncalo Paciencia as the lone striker again having scored against Leipzig.

Predicted line-up (4-4-1-1): Trapp; Toure, Abraham, Hinteregger, N'Dicka; Chandler, Sow, Rode, Kostic; Gacinovic; Dost

Unavailable: Russ (Injured), Lucas Torro (Injured), Fernandes (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

After their pre-Christmas slump, a refreshed Eintracht Frankfurt have started the year with two wins. Last weekend's clean sheet against RB Leipzig was the Eagles' first since October and having kept the league leaders out, they can do the same against bottom side and lowest scorers Dusseldorf.
