THE TEAM NEWS

UNION BERLIN

  • Since their shock win over Borussia Dortmund at the end of August, Union Berlin have suffered four defeats on the bounce, though none of them have been by more than two goals.
  • Other than long-term absentees Grischa Promel and Akaki Gogia, coach Urs Fischer has a full squad at his disposal with Sebastian Polter back from suspension.
  • Fischer is not expected to make many alterations from the team that ran Wolfsburg close in the last match, with Keven Schlotterbeck set to face his parent club.

Predicted line-up (3-4-2-1): Gikiewicz; Schlotterbeck, Subotic, Friedrich; Trimmel, Gentner, Andrich, Lenz; Bulter, Ingvartsen; Andersson

Unavailable: Promel (Injured), Gogia (Injured)

Doubtful:

FREIBURG

  • Typically Freiburg are not as strong on their travels as they are at home but it has been a different story this season, with nine of their 14 points being collected on the road.
  • Captain Mike Frantz returned to full training this week having missed the last two games but right-back Lukas Kubler is out after undergoing knee surgery.
  • Fringe players Mark Flekken and Marco Terrazzino made their comebacks from injury in a friendly during the international break but Nicolas Hofler will be assessed after picking up a knock in the game.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Schwolow; Lienhart, Koch, Heintz; Schmid, Haberer, Abrashi, Gunter; Waldschmidt, Petersen, Holer

Unavailable: Kath (Injured), Kubler (Injured)

Doubtful: Frantz (Injured), Hofler (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Freiburg have a 100 per cent record on the road this season and they will fancy their chances of another three points at Union Berlin, who have lost their last four matches. The Alten Forsterei is not an easy place to go but the visitors are streetwise enough to grind out a result.
