THE TEAM NEWS

UNION BERLIN

  • Union Berlin had to settle for a point at fellow promoted side Paderborn on Saturday but they have won their last four home games without conceding.
  • Fit-again Subotic was only named on the bench at Paderborn but is expected to return in defence here, with Parensen the player most likely to be sacrificed.
  • Mees made his comeback from injury as a substitute on Saturday but Abdullahi remains a doubt while Promel, Gogia and Schlotterbeck are long-term casualties.

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

Unavailable: Promel (Injured), Gogia (Injured), Schlotterbeck (Injured)

Doubtful: Abdullahi (Injured)

HOFFENHEIM

  • Hoffenheim have picked up just one point and shipped 13 goals in their last four matches, four of them coming at home to Augsburg last Friday.
  • For that reason, Vogt and Hubner are likely to be restored in central defence having returned to the squad on Friday, while Posch is also an option following suspension.
  • Zuber and Belfodil are the only players not available to coach Schreuder, who could start Skov at left-back again following his goal against Augsburg.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Baumann; Kaderabek, Vogt, Hubner, Skov; Samassekou, Rudy, Grillitsch; Bebou, Kramaric, Adamyan

Unavailable: Belfodil (Injured), Zuber (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Hoffenheim's recent away record does not look bad at all but performances and results have slumped in recent weeks for Schreuder's men. Union Berlin are a force to be reckoned with at home right now and they have to be fancied under the floodlights at the Alten Forsterei.
