THE TEAM NEWS

PADERBORN

  • Paderborn brought back a well-earned point from their trip to Wolfsburg two weeks ago but they are still looking for their first win since returning to the top flight.
  • Coach Steffen Baumgart has named the same line-up in the last two games and indicated on Friday that he will do so again so long as everyone is fit.
  • Fit-again goalkeeper Leopold Zingerle played 90 minutes in a friendly last week so centre-back Sebastian Schonlau is the only absentee for Baumgart.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Huth; Drager, Strohdiek, Hunemeier, Collins; Cauly, Gjasula, Vasiliadis, Antwi-Adjej; Michel, Mamba

Unavailable: Schonlau (Injured)

Doubtful:

SCHALKE 04

  • Schalke 04 will be looking to kick on after beating Hertha BSC 3-0 at home to claim their first league win of the season and their first under new boss David Wagner.
  • Ozan Kabak, Alessandro Schopf and Mark Uth were all included in the squad for the first time this season against Hertha and winger Rabbi Matondo is also available again after injury.
  • Weston McKennie will be assessed after returning from international duty early and Benito Raman is ruled out, while Juan Miranda has joined on loan from Barcelona to provide competition for Bastian Oczipka at left-back.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Nubel; Kenny, Nastasic, Sane, Oczipka; Omar Mascarell, McKennie; Caligiuri, Harit, Kutucu; Burgstaller

Unavailable: Bentaleb (Injured), Raman (Injured)

Doubtful: Matondo (Injured), Nastasic (Injured)

MATCH ANALYSIS

Paderborn may have only taken one point from three games but they are the only team in the Bundesliga to have scored inside the opening 15 minutes in every one. Given that Schalke have only scored one goal by one of their own players this term, the team to score first market is one to consider.
