THE TEAM NEWS

WERDER BREMEN

  • Werder Bremen will be hoping their midweek cup win at home to Borussia Dortmund can spark an upturn in their woeful league form.
  • January signing Selke will face a late fitness test after coming off with a knock against Dortmund, but he is not expected to be out for any length of time.
  • Right-back Lang returned to full training on Wednesday but Mohwald, Fullkrug, Gebre Selassie, Langkamp, Augustinsson and Bargfrede will all miss out again.

Predicted line-up (3-4-2-1): Pavlenka; Vogt, Moisander, Toprak; Bittencourt, M. Eggestein, Klaassen, Friedl; Osako, Rashica; Sargent

Unavailable: Mohwald (Injured), Fullkrug (Injured), Gebre Selassie (Injured), Langkamp (Injured), Augustinsson (Injured), Bargfrede (Injured)

Doubtful: Lang (Injured), Selke (Injured)

UNION BERLIN

  • Union Berlin are in danger of being dragged into the relegation fight having lost four of their last five league games, and they only scraped past fourth-tier Verl in the cup on Wednesday.
  • First-choice goalkeeper Gikiewicz and Ingvartsen will both be assessed after picking up injuries against Verl, and Abdullahi has been ruled out again.
  • Coach Fischer must choose between Parsensen and Hubner to replace the suspended Friedrich in the centre of defence, while Malli and Bulter could be recalled in attack.

Predicted line-up (3-4-2-1): Gikiewicz; Parensen, Subotic, Schlotterbeck; Trimmel, Gentner, Andrich, Lenz; Bulter, Malli; Andersson

Unavailable: Abdullahi (Injured), Gogia (Injured), Mees (Injured), Friedrich (Suspended)

Doubtful: Gikiewicz (Injured), Ingvartsen (Injured), Schmiedebach (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Werder Bremen have thrown away 19 points from winning positions this season, more than any other side in the Bundesliga. Union Berlin, meanwhile, have taken just one point from their last five away outings so the hosts should be fancied to draw first blood in a match they almost have to win.
