Team News

  • Manager Wiesinger will make his debut as Nürnberg manager.
  • Marvin Plattenhardt and Javier Pinola compete for the spot at left-back.
  • Tomas Pekhart could get his chance up front this time, with Sebastian Polter dropping to the bench.
  • Manager Fink confirmed that he will stick to the 4-3-1-2 system with Rafael van der Vaart returning as the playmaker.
  • Marcell Jansen returns from injury to replace Zhi Gin Lam at left-back.
  • Tolgay Arslan will switch to the right side of the diamond, making way for van der Vaart. Per Skjelbred will drop to the bench.

Prediction

  • Nürnberg had a solid first half of the season. They have earned 20 points thus far and new manager Wiesinger has to continue the good job that Dieter Hecking has done in the last few years, before moving to Wolfsburg this winter.
  • Hamburg are pleased with their 24 point tally amassed before the winter break as well but want to improve now to compete for European places again. Manager Fink has no new injury concerns and a quality squad to choose from.
  • Expect this to be a competitive game from the outset.
