THE TEAM NEWS

WERDER BREMEN

  • Werder Bremen and their coach Kohfeldt will be feeling relieved after ending their eight-match winless run in the league with a hard-fought 3-2 success at Wolfsburg last Sunday.
  • Striker Sargent has been ruled out for the rest of the year so Osako will lead the line again with Bittencourt and the in-form Rashica either side of him.
  • Moisander returned to full training this week and could replace Gross in the centre of defence, while Sahin is expected to be recalled in midfield.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Pavlenka; Gebre Selassie, Veljkovic, Moisander, Augustinsson; M. Eggestein, Sahin, Klaassen; Bittencourt, Osako, Rashica

Unavailable: Mohwald (Injured), Fullkrug (Injured), Sargent (Injured), Bartels (Injured), Toprak (Injured)

Doubtful: Moisander (Injured)

PADERBORN

  • Cellar-dwellers Paderborn suffered their tenth Bundesliga defeat of the season at home to RB Leipzig last Saturday, but coach Baumgart will have been encouraged by how his side fought back after being 3-0 down at the break.
  • Midfielder Ritter has been ruled out again as he is lacking fitness but otherwise Baumgart has a full squad at his disposal.
  • Despite their poor results, Baumgart has largely trusted the same system and group of players so far this term, so there are unlikely to be many changes.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Zingerle; Jans, Kilian, Schonlau, Collins; Proger, Gjasula, Vasiliadis, Antwi-Adjej; Zolinski, Mamba

Unavailable:

Doubtful: Ritter (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

After ending their long winless streak last weekend, Werder Bremen will be eyeing their second back-to-back wins of the campaign against bottom side Paderborn. Werder have not recorded a clean sheet in the league since May, though, so the visitors should at least get a goal.
