Team News

  • Captain and goalkeeper Tim Wiese is still injured and will be replaced by Koen Casteels.
  • Sebastian Rudy is suspended for one game, meaning Danny Williams and Sejad Salihovic will play in central midfield.
  • Takashi Usami and Vincenzo Grifo compete for a spot on the left wing.
  • Sven Schipplock could start up front, instead of Joselu, with Eren Derdiyok staying on the bench.
  • Aleksandar Ignjovski and Lukas Schmitz compete for the spot at left-back.
  • With Zlatko Junuzovic suspended for one game, captain Clemens Fritz will return to the starting eleven to replace the Austria in defensive midfield.
  • Marko Arnautovic is fit again to start on the right wing.
  • Nils Petersen and Joseph Akpala compete for the spot up front.


  • Hoffenheim have lost their last three games in a row and are only 16th in the table at the moment. Sporting director Müller has backed the manager so far, but Babbel definitely needs a result.
  • Bremen have to recover from a disappointing home loss against Leverkusen. The return of captain Clemens Fritz could give the stability, but the whole team needs to work on their defensive organisation again.
  • Expect Bremen to try to dominate the game and Hoffenheim to wait for their chances on the break in an open game.
