Team News

  • Mergim Mavraj returns from suspension and will replace Thomas Kleine or Lasse Sobiech at centre-back.
  • Heinrich Schmidtgal is still injured, meaning Rahman Baba will keep his spot in the back four.
  • With Bernd Nehrig and Edgar Prib out injured as well, Milorad Pekovic and Thanos Petsos could get their chances in midfield.
  • New signing Nikola Djurdjic could make his debut up front.
  • Jan Kirchhoff could return to the starting eleven to replace Eugen Polanski, who finalised a transfer to Hoffenheim on Friday.
  • Nicolai Müller and Marcel Risse compete for the spot on the right wing.
  • With Shawn Parker suspended for one game, veteran Ivan Klasnic is the first option up front.

Prediction

  • Fürth only lost 0-2 at Bayern last weekend and they need to keep their focus at home now. The team is last in the Bundesliga and a result is almost a must to keep their chances alive.
  • Mainz are in good form, despite a 0-0 draw against Freiburg in their last match. Their pressing game is hard to overcome for most teams.
  • Expect Mainz to try to dominate the game and Fürth to wait for their chances on the break.
