THE TEAM NEWS

WOLFSBURG

  • Wolfsburg ended their seven-match winless run with victory at Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend and followed that up with a win at Oleksandriya on Thursday, sealing their place in the Europa League last 32.
  • Coach Glasner named an unchanged line-up on Thursday but he will be forced into at least one change here as centre-back Tisserand is suspended, with Knoche in line to replace him.
  • Striker Ginczek could be included in the squad for the first time this season after playing in an U23 game last weekend as the treatment room continues to empty.

Predicted line-up (3-4-3): Casteels; Knoche, Brooks, Bruma; Mbabu, Arnold, Guilavogui, Roussillon; Mehmedi, Weghorst, Brekalo

Unavailable: Ignacio Camacho (Injured), Tisserand (Suspended)

Doubtful: Malli (Injured), Ginczek (Injured)

WERDER BREMEN

  • Werder Bremen's 2-1 defeat at home to Schalke 04 last Saturday extended their winless run in the league to eight games, and left them outside the relegation zone on goal difference only.
  • Bittencourt is expected to be recalled having only been fit enough for the bench against Schalke, with the more defensive Bargfrede most likely to make way.
  • Coach Kohfeldt must choose between Langkamp and Gross to partner Veljkovic at the back, with fellow centre-backs Moisander and Toprak still sidelined.

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

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

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Werder are unbeaten in their last seven encounters with Wolfsburg but they are currently winless in eight matches. Five of those were drawn, though, while the Wolves have been something of the draw specialists in the Bundesliga in recent years, so it would not be a surprise to see the points shared.
