Team News

  • Radoslav Zabavnik and Junior Diaz compete for the spot at left-back.
  • With Jan Kirchhoff out injured and Julian Baumgartlinger suspended, manager Tuchel has huge problems in defensive midfield. Andreas Ivanschitz could drop back and Yunus Malli could start behind the strikers.
  • Shawn Parker and Nicolai Müller compete for the spot alongside Adám Szalai up front.
  • Konstantin Rausch and Christian Pander compete for the spot at left-back.
  • Christian Schulz and Manuel Schmiedebach compete for the spot alongside Sergio Pinto.
  • Lars Stindl returns from suspension to start on the right wing, meaning Jan Schlaudraff could switch to the second striker position again.

Prediction

  • Mainz have been in good form in the last few weeks and were rewarded with a win at Frankfurt during the week. It remains to be seen how the team will deal without two of their main defensive midfielders, though.
  • Hannover will have regained confidence during the week with a win against Fürth after having lost the previous two games. The return of Lars Stindl will further improve their balance.
  • Expect this to be a close game, but how the match pans out will ultimately depend on how well Mainz will deal with their injuries and suspensions.
