THE TEAM NEWS

WERDER BREMEN

  • Werder Bremen squandered an early two-goal lead in their 2-2 draw at Hertha BSC last Saturday, but it did at least end their run of five straight defeats in the league.
  • First-choice goalkeeper Pavlenka and centre-back Toprak have been ruled out again after missing the trip to Berlin, so Kapino will continue in goal.
  • On top of a lengthy injury list, Klaasen is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card, but Bartels could return to the squad.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Kapino; Veljkovic, Vogt, Moisander; Gebre Selassie, M. Eggestein, Sahin, Augustinsson; Bittencourt, Sargent, Rashica

Unavailable: Mohwald (Injured), Fullkrug (Injured), Toprak (Injured), Pavlenka (Injured), Klaasen (Suspended)

Doubtful: Bartels (Injured), Lang (Injured), Langkamp (Injured)

BAYER LEVERKUSEN

  • Bayer Leverkusen will be more disappointed than most about competitions being suspended as they have won nine of their last 10 games overall.
  • Sinkgraven and Alario will be assessed after missing Thursday's trip to Rangers in the Europa League, while Lars Bender also remains a doubt.
  • With top scorer Volland still sidelined, Havertz led the attack against Rangers and continued his run of scoring or assisting in each of his last six appearances in all competitions.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Hradecky; Weiser, Tah, Tapsoba, Wendell; Baumgartlinger, Aranguiz; Bellarabi, Paulinho, Diaby; Havertz

Unavailable: Volland (Injured), S. Bender (Injured), Amiri (Injured)

Doubtful: Sinkgraven (Illness), Alario (Injured), L. Bender (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

These two teams' form could hardly be more contrasting. Werder Bremen have lost nine of their last 11 Bundesliga matches, failing to score in seven of those. Bayer Leverkusen, who have won seven of the last nine in the league and boast the joint second best defence, should therefore win comfortably.
