Team News

  • Stelios Malezas and Martin Latka should keep their spots at centre-back, with Jens Langeneke remaining on the bench.
  • Robbie Kruse returns from an illness to start on the right wing.
  • With Stefan Reisinger injured, Dani Schahin could get a chance up front.
  • Christian Wetklo and Heinz Müller compete for the spot in goal.
  • With Junior Diaz out injured, Radoslav Zabavnik should start at left-back.
  • Chinedu Ede is another option in midfield.
  • Up front, Shawn Parker returns from suspension to play alongside Adám Szalai.

Prediction

  • Düsseldorf have won two of their last four games and have been involved in lots of close games during that run. They need to continue to defend solidly and further results will come.
  • Mainz have drawn their last three games in a row and need a win now in order to claim back a spot in the top six. Injuries and suspensions have cost them consistency in the last few weeks.
  • Expect this to be a close game from the outset.
