Team News

  • Sokratis returns from a bout of flu to replace the suspended Sebastian Prödl at centre-back.
  • Theodor Gebre Selassie will probably drop to the bench again, with manager Schaaf starting his usual option in midfield again.
  • On the left flank, Mehmet Ekici and Eljero Elia compete for a spot in the starting eleven.
  • Michael Parkhurst returns from an illness to play at right-back again.
  • At left-back, Marcel de Jong and Matthias Ostrzolek compete for a spot in the starting line-up.
  • Kevin Vogt will probably replace the injured Jan Moravek in central midfield, with Andre Hahn dropping to the bench.

Prediction

  • Bremen have lost their last two games - against Freiburg and Bayern - and need to improve defensively again. They need results at home now to keep their chances for a top six finish alive.
  • Augsburg have made vast improvements since the winter break and a win against direct rivals Hoffenheim last weekend lifted them to the relegation play-off spot.
  • Expect this to be a competitive game from the start. Bremen certainly have more individual quality, but Augsburg's newly found team spirit should not be underestimated.
