Team News

  • The injured Anderson could be replaced by Vadim Demidov at centre-back again.
  • Carlos Zambrano returns from suspension to start instead of Marc-Oliver Kempf.
  • In central midfield, captain Pirmin Schwegler returns from suspension to replace Martin Lanig.
  • Karim Matmour is suspended again, after a second sending off in seven days, so Olivier Occean should replace him up front.
  • Aleksandar Ignjovski and Lukas Schmitz compete for the spot at left-back.
  • Zlatko Junuzovic returns from injury to replace Aaron Hunt in central midfield.
  • Niklas Füllkrug and Eljero Elia both have chances to start on the wing.

Prediction

  • Frankfurt have lost their last two games, conceding seven goals against Mainz and Düsseldorf. The return of Carlos Zambrano and Pirmin Schwegler should add stability again but it remains to be seen if they have fully recovered from their recent spell on the sidelines.
  • Bremen won at Hoffenheim last weekend to regain confidence after their last home defeat. A result against struggling Frankfurt would offer them a good opportunity to stay in contention for European places.
  • Expect this to be an open game with several chances for both teams.
