THE TEAM NEWS

WERDER BREMEN

  • Injury-hit Werder Bremen will be looking to get off the mark here having started the new Bundesliga campaign with two defeats, conceding six goals in the process.
  • Johannes Eggestein is suspended following his sending off at Hoffenheim last Saturday, so either Martin Harnik or young talent Josh Sargent will take his place in attack.
  • With Milos Veljkovic, Sebastian Langkamp and Omer Toprak sidelined, new signing Michael Lang could slot in at centre-back following his loan move from Borussia M'gladbach.

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

Unavailable: UVeljkovic (Injured), Bargfrede (Injured), Bartels (Injured), Augustinsson (Injured), Langkamp (Injured), Rashica (Injured), Goller (Injured), Toprak (Injured), J. Eggestein (Suspended)

Doubtful: Pizarro (Illness)

AUGSBURG

  • Augsburg had to settle for a point - their first of the season - at home to Union Berlin last Saturday as their winless run increased to seven competitive games.
  • New signings Tin Jedvaj and Stephan Lichtsteiner went straight into the back four against Union Berlin but Felix Uduokhai has added to coach Martin Schmidt's defensive options after joining on loan from Wolfsburg.
  • Schmidt has no fresh personnel concerns but none of the injured players are expected to be available, so he could well name an unchanged line-up.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Koubek; Lichtsteiner, Khedira, Jedvaj, Max; Baier, Gruezo; Hahn, Gregoritsch, Vargas; Niederlechner

Unavailable: Gouweleeuw (Injured), Iago (Injured), Cordova (Injured), Gotze (Injured), Giefer (Injured)

Doubtful: Sarenren-Bazee (Injured), Framberger (Injured)

MATCH ANALYSIS

Both of these sides are looking for their first league wins of the season but they have at least scored in both their matches. Werder Bremen have had actually had more shots on target than anyone else in the league, but they are light on bodies at the other end of the pitch because of injuries.
