THE TEAM NEWS

UNION BERLIN

  • Union Berlin will be hoping the international break has not taken the wind out of their sails after they claimed their first ever Bundesliga win against none other than Borussia Dortmund.
  • Keven Schlotterbeck serves the second match of his suspension so Neven Subotic and Marvin Friedrich will continue as the centre-back pairing.
  • Florian Hubner, Grischa Promel and Marcus Ingvartsen are all close to returning but will miss out again, but coach Urs Fischer has no fresh injury concerns.

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

Unavailable: Schlotterbeck (Suspended), Hubner (Injured), Promel (Injured), Ingvartsen (Injured)

Doubtful:

WERDER BREMEN

  • Werder Bremen claimed their first Bundesliga win of the season with a 3-2 success at home to Augsburg last time out but they have lost three of their last four away league matches.
  • Werder's injury woes have not eased at all over the international break and captain Niklas Moisander is the latest casualty, meaning coach Florian Kohfeldt has just four fit defenders.
  • Midfielder Kevin Mohwald has been ruled out for around six months following knee surgery but winger Johannes Eggestein is at least back from suspension.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Pavlenka; Lang, Gebre Selassie, Gross, Friedl; M. Eggestein, Sahin, Klaasen; J. Eggestein, Fullkrug, Osako

Unavailable: Mohwald (Injured), Veljkovic (Injured), Bargfrede (Injured), Bartels (Injured), Augustinsson (Injured), Langkamp (Injured), Rashica (Injured), Goller (Injured), Toprak (Injured), Moisander (Injured)

Doubtful:

MATCH ANALYSIS

Union Berlin will feel they have arrived in the Bundesliga after that sensational win over Borussia Dortmund and they will fancy their chances of picking up another three points at home to Werder Bremen. Given the visitors' considerable injury problems, Union look worth backing.
