THE TEAM NEWS

WERDER BREMEN

  • An injury-time penalty salvaged a point for Werder Bremen at Eintracht Frankfurt last time out but they have lost two of their three home games this season.
  • Bremen's significant injury problems have not really eased over the international break although Yuya Osako and Niklas Moisander are both closing in on returns.
  • Omer Toprak has been ruled out after suffering a fresh injury setback but fellow centre-back Sebastian Langkamp made his comeback in a friendly last week.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Pavlenka; Gebre Selassie, Veljkovic, Groß, Friedl; M. Eggestein, Sahin, Klaassen; Bittencourt, Sargent, Rashica

Unavailable: Moisander (Injured), Mohwald (Injured), Fullkrug (Injured), Bartels (Injured), Augustinsson (Injured), Osako (Injured), Toprak (Injured)

Doubtful: Pizarro (Injured)

HERTHA

  • Three successive wins, albeit against teams at the lower end of the table, have lifted Hertha BSC up to tenth and away from danger.
  • Centre-back Niklas Stark is doubtful after returning home from international duty early and Eduard Lowen is also struggling with an injury, but Arne Maier is the only definite absentee.
  • Karim Rekik or Jordan Torunarigha will replace Stark in the centre of defence if he is not fit, but otherwise it could be the same side that started in the 3-1 win over Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Jarstein; Klunter, Rekik, Boyata, Mittelstadt; Skjelbred, Grujic; Wolf, Darida, Dilrosun; Ibisevic

Unavailable: Maier (Injured)

Doubtful: Stark (Injured), Lowen (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Werder Bremen have been a bit of a bogey team for Hertha in recent years; the Green-Whites are unbeaten in the last 11 top-flight meetings between the two sides. Yet with the Berliners in good form and Bremen missing so many players, now is a good time for that run to end.
