Team News

  • Paul Scharner is suspended after his starting debut last weekend and will be replaced by Jeffrey Bruma or the returning Michael Mancienne.
  • Tomás Rincón and Tolgay Arslan compete for a spot in central midfield.
  • Marcell Jansen could switch to the left wing, allowing Dennis Aogo to return to the left-back position, but Maximilian Beister will most likely keep his spot.
  • Julian Baumgartlinger is suspended and could be replaced by Eugen Polanski in central midfield.
  • Nikita Rukavytsya and Nicolai Müller compete for the spot alongside Adám Szalai up front.
  • Ivan Klasnic returns from injury to start on the bench.
  • Otherwise, manager Tuchel could field an unchanged team.

Prediction

  • Hamburg have recovered from the loss against Bayern with a solid performance at Freiburg last weekend. They need to improve on the attack again now to create more chances.
  • Mainz have been in strong form in the last few weeks and they are already in the seventh spot again. A win at Hamburg would give them a solid advantage in the table.
  • Expect this to be a close game with several chances for both sides.
