THE TEAM NEWS

PADERBORN

  • Paderborn moved off the bottom of the table with an impressive 2-0 win at Freiburg last Saturday, their third win in six league matches.
  • Coach Baumgart will be forced into two changes as left-back Collins and captain Gjasula both serve one-game bans, with Holtmann and new signing Fridjonsson expected to take their places.
  • Drager and Michel are both struggling with injuries, while young English midfielder Evans is likely to be among the substitutes after his move from Everton.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Zingerle; Jans, Strohdiek, Schonlau, Collins; Fridjonsson; Proger, Vasiliadis, Sabiri, Antwi-Adjei; Srbeny

Unavailable: Collins (Suspended), Gjasula (Suspended), Killian (Injured)

Doubtful: Drager (Injured), Michel (Injured)

WOLFSBURG

  • Wolfsburg suffered a late 2-1 defeat at home to Hertha BSC last Saturday having taken the lead, their seventh loss in their last 10 Bundesliga games.
  • The Wolves have been struggling to convert their chances and they will have to do without top scorer Weghorst for this one as he has a thigh problem.
  • January signing Pongracic is set to be included in the squad for the first time, while Mehmedi could start in attack after coming on and scoring against Hertha.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Casteels; William, Tisserand, Knoche, Roussillon; Guilavogui, Arnold, Schlager; Mehmedi, Ginczek, Brekalo

Unavailable: Ignacio Camacho (Injured), Weghorst (Injured)

Doubtful: Pongracic (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

The three previous top-flight meetings between these two sides have produced two draws and a win for Wolfsburg but current form should give Paderborn hope. The hosts' results have improved recently whereas Wolfsburg have been struggling, so Paderborn are well placed to get something.
