Team News

FC Heidenheim
Mainz
  • Adrian Beck has an ankle problem, while Lennard Maloney has a shoulder injury. Omar Traore is available after suspension.
  • Thomas Keller has suffered an ACL injury, while Marnon Busch is struggling with knee pain.
  • Tom Krauss and Lee Jae-Sung are both available after suspension, but Phillipp Mwene is on the naughty step for two games after his sending off last Sunday, along with Nadiem Amiri and Brajan Gruda who have both reached five yellow cards.
  • Jessic Ngankam has a thigh injury, while Stefan Bell has a heart inflammation issue that is of concern. Karim Onisiwo fractured three fingers against Koln and is a doubt. Maxim Leitsch has adductor problems.

Prediction

  • Despite a six-game unbeaten run under Bo Henriksen, their third boss of the season, Mainz are still in acute strife languishing in the relegation playoff spot.
  • Promoted FCH have conceded 10 penalties this season, but shocked Bayern recently on home soil and look set for a very respectable mid-table finish.
  • Heidenheim edged the reverse fixture 1-0 and a similar result is a realistic proposition.
