THE TEAM NEWS

PADERBORN

  • Paderborn are three points adrift at the bottom of the table after losing 2-0 at Borussia Monchengladbach on Wednesday and have won just once at home this season.
  • Midfielder Vasiliadis is suspended after collecting his fifth yellow card of the season in midweek, and has been ruled out through injury anyway, so Sabiri or fit-again Ritter could start.
  • Zolinski and Antwi-Adjei could come back into the attack after being benched in midweek, although only Mamba has scored more than two goals for the team this season.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Zingerle; Jans, Kilian, Schonlau, Collins; Proger, Gjasula, Sabiri, Antwi-Adjei; Zolinski, Mamba

Unavailable: Vasiliadis (Suspended)

Doubtful: Kapic (Illness)

EINTRACHT FRANKFURT

  • Eintracht Frankfurt suffered a major collapse at home to Koln on Wednesday, going from 2-0 up to losing 4-2 as they slipped to their fifth defeat in six league games.
  • Coach Hutter is under real pressure for the first time during his tenure and he is not helped by the absence of centre-back Hinteregger, who scored his fifth league goal of the season in midweek, due to suspension.
  • N'Dicka will take Hinteregger's place in the back three with Abraham still serving a ban, while Da Costa and Sow should come back into the starting line-up.

Predicted line-up (3-4-1-2): Wiedwald; Toure, Hasebe, N'Dicka; Da Costa, Sow, Rode, Kostic; Kamada; Dost, Goncalo Paciencia

Unavailable: Russ (Injured), Trapp (Injured), Abraham (Suspended), Ronnow (Injured), Lucas Torro (Injured), Hinteregger (Suspended)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Having started their season in July, Eintracht Frankfurt are limping towards the end of the year with just one point from their last six league games. They have only scored five goals in that time so Paderborn, who have had a habit of scoring early goals this season, will look to pounce.
