THE TEAM NEWS

FREIBURG

  • Freiburg suffered their first defeat in five league games at leaders Borussia Monchengladbach last Sunday but they have lost just once at home in the Bundesliga this season.
  • First-choice goalkeeper Schwolow is edging closer to a comeback but this game may come too soon, while midfielder Gondorf is doubtful because of illness.
  • Grifo completes his suspension and Lienhart has been ruled out after undergoing surgery on his shoulder, but everyone who started at Gladbach is available.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Flekken; Gulde, Koch, Heintz; Schmid, Frantz, Hofler, Gunter; Haberer, Petersen, Holer

Unavailable: Kubler (Injured), Tempelman (Injured), Waldschmidt (Injured), Lienhart (Injured), Grifo (Suspended)

Doubtful: Schwolow (Injured), Gondorf (Illness)

WOLFSBURG

  • Wolfsburg narrowly lost out in a five-goal thriller at home to Werder Bremen last Sunday but despite just one win in six league games, they remain in the congested top half of the table.
  • Tisserand is poised to return in defence following a one-match ban while the likes of Brekalo and Steffen are also options for coach Glasner should he choose to rotate.
  • Striker Ginczek made his first appearance of the season as a late substitute against Bremen but Ignacio Camacho, Malli and Azzoui have been ruled out again.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Casteels; Tisserand, Bruma, Brooks; William, Arnold, Guilavogui, Roussillon; Mehmedi, Weghorst, Brekalo

Unavailable: Ignacio Camacho (Injured), Malli (Injured), Azzoui (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Freiburg have lost just one of their last eight Bundesliga games at home and scored the first goal in seven of those. They also boast the best home defensive record in the league and with Wolfsburg's domestic form dipping recently, the hosts will try to strike first again.
