THE TEAM NEWS

UNION BERLIN

  • Bundesliga debutants Union Berlin have collected four points from their opening five matches, enough for them to give coach Urs Fischer a new contract through to next season.
  • Discipline has been an issue for Union so far and striker Sebastian Polter picked up their third red card of the season at Bayer Leverkusen last weekend, but Neven Subotic returns from a ban.
  • Left-back Christopher Lenz is doubtful after going off injured at Leverkusen so Ken Reichel could start, and winger Suleiman Abdullahi is also a doubt with a knee problem.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Gikiewicz; Trimmel, Subotic, Friedrich, Reichel; Becker, Gentner, Andrich, Bulter; Andersson, Ujah

Unavailable: Promel (Injured), Polter (Suspended)

Doubtful: Lenz (Injured), Abdullahi (Injured)

EINTRACHT FRANKFURT

  • A late equaliser earned Eintracht Frankfurt a deserved point at home to Borussia Dortmund last Sunday but they have lost both their away league games this season.
  • Mijat Gacinovic and Jonathan de Guzman are fit again but fellow midfielder Sebastian Rode will face a late fitness test having missed the last couple of games.
  • Captain David Abraham should be restored in defence after being rested against Dortmund, while coach Adi Hutter will again have to decide which two of Goncalo Paciencia, Andre Silva and Bas Dost he picks up front.

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

Unavailable: Russ (Injured)

Doubtful: Rode (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Eintracht Frankfurt have lost both their away games in the Bundesliga this season but they are the favourites in this encounter. Union Berlin are certainly a threat at home, as they proved against Dortmund, but the Eagles should have too much quality going forward for the hosts to withstand.
