Pascal Stenzel and the more defensive-minded Lukas Kübler compete for the spot on the right wing.
Florian Kath and Marco Terrazzino compete for a spot on the flanks.
Tim Kleindienst provides a further option up front, if manager Christian Streich decides to field a second striker.
Mainz landed an important draw at relegation rivals Cologne last weekend, which saw them maintain a 5-point gap between themselves and 17th spot. They have a huge chance to improve their situation in the battle against relegation at home against another direct opponent now.
Freiburg have only picked up a single point from their last five league games and entered the battle against relegation themselves as a result. They have only lost two of their last eight away matches, but only won one game on the road all season as well.
Expect this to be a close and intense game from the outset.
