Team News

  • Josué and Christian Träsch compete for a spot in central midfield.
  • Vierinha will probably start on the left wing again, with Ivica Olic dropping to the bench.
  • Otherwise, manager Köstner is unlikely to make any more changes.
  • The injured Anderson could be replaced by Vadim Demidov at centre-back this time round, as Heiko Butscher is out with a cold as well.
  • In midfield, manager Veh is like to keep the same players.
  • Karim Matmour returns from suspension to replace Olivier Occean up front.

Prediction

  • After three games without a win, Wolfsburg were lucky to beat Dortmund last weekend and the team should be full of confidence for the last game before the winter break.
  • Frankfurt have recovered well from two heavy losses in a row, 4-1 win against Bremen last time out. With another good result here, the newly promoted team could keep a top four spot until January.
  • Expect this to be a close game from the outset.
