THE TEAM NEWS

HERTHA

  • Hertha BSC ended their five-match losing run in the league with a 2-2 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt last Friday, but they will have been disappointed having been 2-0 up.
  • Coach Klinsmann welcomes first-choice goalkeeper Jarstein back from a two-match ban, while midfielder Skjelbred is fit again after missing the trip to Frankfurt.
  • Lukebakio will keep his place up front after scoring at Frankfurt but there could be changes in the wide positions again with Klunter, Wolf, Plattenhardt and Mittelstadt all vying for selection.

Predicted line-up (3-4-1-2): Jarstein; Rekik, Stark, Boyata; Wolf, Grujic, Skjelbred, Plattenhardt; Darida; Selke, Lukebakio

Doubtful: Leckie (Injured)

FREIBURG

  • A late free kick earned Freiburg a hard-fought 1-0 win at home to Wolfsburg last Saturday, which moved them back up to fifth in the table.
  • Winger Grifo has completed his three-match suspension but coach Streich may decide against making any changes after a strong performance last week.
  • Ravet has joined the injury list but he is yet to make a Bundesliga appearance this season, while first-choice goalkeeper Schwolow is still not fully fit.

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

Unavailable: Kubler (Injured), Tempelmann (Injured), Waldschmidt (Injured), Lienhart (Injured), Ravet (Injured)

Doubtful: Schwolow (Injured), Gondorf (Illness)

THE PREDICTION

Hertha are in desperate need of points having collected just one from their last six matches. There are no such worries for Freiburg, who continue to defy expectations this season. They are also unbeaten in their last five meetings with the Berliners and should be fancied to extend that run.
