THE TEAM NEWS

MAINZ

  • New Mainz coach Beierlorzer got off to a perfect start last Sunday as his ten men thrashed Hoffenheim 5-1, lifting them out of the bottom three.
  • Baku was the man sent off at Hoffenheim so he is suspended for this one, with captain Latza expected to take his place in the centre of midfield.
  • St. Juste and Boetius should shake off knocks in time, while Beierlorzer is again expected to start with a 3-4-1-2 formation, with Fernandes in a new role in the back three.

Predicted line-up (3-4-1-2): Zentner; Fernandes, St. Juste, Niakhate; Oztunali, Malong, Latza, Aaron Martin; Boetius; Quaison, Onisiwo

Unavailable: Bell (Injured), Mateta (Injured), Seydel (Injured), Ji Dong-Wong (Injured), Baku (Suspended)

Doubtful: Mwene (Injured). St. Juste (Injured), Boetius (Injured)

EINTRACHT FRANKFURT

  • Eintracht Frankfurt have struggled away from home in the Bundesliga in recent weeks but they did come from behind to pull off an impressive 2-1 win at Arsenal in the Europa League on Thursday night.
  • Either N'Dicka or Toure will come into the back three with Abraham serving a seven-week domestic ban, but Fernandes is available again after suspension.
  • Rode and Dost will be assessed after sitting out the trip to London while Kamada should keep his place in attack after scoring both goals on Thursday.

Predicted line-up (3-4-1-2): Ronnow; Toure, Hasebe, Hinteregger; Da Costa, Sow, Kohr, Kostic; Kamada; Andre Silva, Goncalo Paciencia

Unavailable: Russ (Injured), Trapp (Injured), Abraham (Suspended)

Doubtful: Rode (Injured), Dost (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Eintracht Frankfurt have not kept a clean sheet away from home in the Bundesliga since March but they have also scored in 10 of their last 11 away games. Mainz, who put five past Hoffenheim last time out, have the leakiest defence in the league so there should be plenty of goals in this one.
