THE TEAM NEWS

FREIBURG

  • Freiburg slipped to their fourth defeat in six games at Borussia Dortmund last time out and their lack of goals will be particularly concerning for coach Streich.
  • First-team regulars Koch and Waldschmidt are fit again after their recent issues but Haberer is doubtful after coming off with an injury at Dortmund.
  • Youngster Keitel came off the bench for his debut against Dortmund and could feature again with captain Frantz yet to recover from an illness.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Schwolow; Heintz, Gulde, Lienhart; Schmidt, Koch, Hofler, Gunter; Sallai, Petersen, Grifo

Unavailable: Kubler (Injured), Kwon Chang-Hoon (Injured), Abrashi (Injured)

Doubtful: Frantz (Illness), Haberer (Injured)

UNION BERLIN

  • Union Berlin went out of the DFB-Pokal at the hands of Bayer Leverkusen in midweek but their away form in the league has improved with successive wins.
  • Experienced trio Subotic, Trimmel and Gentner as well as top scorer Andersson are all expected to return to the starting line-up after being rested on Wednesday.
  • Coach Fischer has no fresh personnel issues to deal with, and centre-back Schlotterbeck is set to start against his parent club

Predicted line-up (3-4-2-1): Gikiewicz; Friedrich, Subotic, Schlotterbeck; Trimmel, Gentner, Andrich, Lenz; Bulter, Malli; Andersson

Unavailable: Gogia (Injured), Mees (Injured), Dehl (Injured)

Doubtful: Schmiedebach (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Union Berlin have already beaten Freiburg twice this season and on current form they have every chance of making it a hat-trick. The Schwarzwald-Stadion has not been as much of a fortress for the home side lately, with three defeats in the last four, so Union can certainly get something here.
