Team News

  • With Michael Mancienne out injured for several weeks, Jeffrey Bruma will get his chance at centre-back.
  • Tolgay Arslan and Per Skjelbred compete for a spot in central midfield.
  • Maximilian Beister and Heung-Min Son both have a chance of starting alongside Artjoms Rudnevs. The South-Korean should be slightly ahead in manager Fink's thoughts.
  • Clemens Fritz could drop to the bench if Theodor Gebre Selassie and Lukas Schmitz keep their places in the starting line-up
  • Marko Arnautovic returns from suspension to start on the right wing.
  • On the left wing, Niclas Füllkrug competes for the spot with Eljero Elia.
  • Manager Schaaf will most likely field a 4-1-4-1 system, with Nils Petersen as a lone striker.

Prediction

  • Hamburg only managed a draw at Nürnberg last weekend but after a strong second half, the team is full of confidence. It remains to be seen if Jeffrey Bruma is able to replace Michael Mancienne sufficiently.
  • Bremen are not in the best of form and after a 0-5 home defeat against Dortmund last time out, the team needs to get back on track.
  • Expect the "Nordderby" to be a very intense game from the outset. Both teams need a result.
