THE TEAM NEWS

WERDER BREMEN

  • Despite a hefty injury list, Werder Bremen have managed to win their last two games and lift themselves away from the lower regions of the table.
  • Bremen's injury woes deepened this week with key man Yuya Osako ruled out for around six weeks, although midfielder Milot Rashica is fit again and expected to start.
  • To compound the situation, Nuri Sahin is suspended following his dismissal at Union Berlin last weekend but coach Florian Kohfeldt has confirmed that Philipp Bargfrede will be back in the squad.

Predicted line-up (4-1-2-1-2): Pavlenka; Lang, Gebre Selassie, Gross, Friedl; M. Eggestein; Bittencourt, Klaasen; Rashica; Fullkrug, Sargent

Unavailable: Mohwald (Injured), Veljkovic (Injured), Bartels (Injured), Augustinsson (Injured), Langkamp (Injured), Osako (Injured), Toprak (Injured), Sahin (Suspended)

Doubtful: Moisander (Injured), M. Eggestein (Injured)

RB LEIPZIG

  • Things could not be going much better right now for RB Leipzig, who remain top of the Bundesliga and picked up an impressive 2-1 win at Benfica in the Champions League on Tuesday.
  • Coach Julian Nagelsmann has alternated between a 3-5-2 and 4-4-2 formation so far this season and is expected to revert to three at the back for this one.
  • Nagelsmann is likely to rotate following Tuesday's trip to Portugal, with centre-back Dayot Upamecano ready to make his comeback from injury and Christopher Nkunku poised to replace Konrad Laimer, who is a doubt.

Predicted line-up (3-5-2): Gulacsi; Upamecano, Konate, Orban; Klostermann, Sabitzer, Demme, Nkunku, Halstenberg; Werner, Poulsen

Unavailable: Wolf (Injured), Adams (Injured)

Doubtful: Kampl (Injured), Schick (Injured), Laimer (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

The Weserstadion is never an easy place to go - as Leipzig know - having failed to win on their three previous visits. However, Nagelsmann's men are flying at the moment and with Werder ravaged by injuries and suspension, the leaders should capitalise and collect all three points.
