Team News

  • Stelios Malezas returns from injury and competes for a spot in the starting line-up with Adam Bodzek.
  • Leon Balogun should keep his place at right-back, with Tobias Levels remaining on the bench.
  • Axel Bellinghausen and Robbie Kruse both have chances to start on the left wing.
  • Simon Jentzsch is still injured and Alexander Manninger and Mohamed Amsif compete for the spot in goal.
  • With Andreas Ottl injured as well, Jan Moravek could switch to the position alongside Daniel Baier in central midfield.
  • New loan signing Dong-Won Ji could make his debut behind the striker, with fellow country man Ja-Cheol Koo switching to the right wing.
  • Aristide Bancé is at the AFCON, allowing Sasche Mölders to keep his spot up front.

Prediction

  • Düsseldorf had a solid first half of the season after returning to the Bundesliga last summer and the board has further strengthened the squad this winter. They are on the right track to avoiding relegation.
  • Augsburg are 17th in the table, with only one win and nine points so far. They need to improve quickly now to have a slight chance of staying up.
