Team News

Hoffenheim
Union Berlin
  • John Anthony Brooks is available after suspension, while Finn Becker has a knee injury.
  • Dennis Geiger has problems with his adductors, while Mërgim Berisha and Marco John have suffered ACL injuries and both will be out long-term.
  • Christopher Trimmel, Kevin Vogt and Janik Haberer are all available after suspension.
  • Josip Juranovic is nearing a return from a muscle injury.

Prediction

  • A meeting of two struggling sides.
  • Union featured in the Champions League group stages, but sit just five points from relegation trouble with the worst away record in the league.
  • The recent defeat against Bayern was the only time in the last 25 games that Hoffenheim have failed to find the net.
  • Winless in seven games, Hoffenheim won the reverse fixture 2-0 and can ease past relegation-haunted Union with goals at both ends.
