Team News

  • Starting centre-backs Jens Langeneke and Stelios Malezas are still doubtful and injured respectively, meaning Juanan and central midfielder Adam Bodzek could help out in the back-four again.
  • With Tobias Levels not fit to play as well, Leon Balogun could get another chance at right-back.
  • The suspended Ivan Paurevic could be replaced by Oliver Fink, who returned from injury this week.
  • Stefan Reisinger and Ronny Garbuschewski compete for the spot on the right wing.
  • The injured Anderson could be replaced by Vadim Demidov at centre-back.
  • With the second starting centre-back, Carlos Zambrano, suspended, Marc-Oliver Kempf should partner Demidov this time.
  • In central midfield, captain Pirmin Schwegler is suspended for one game as well, and will be replaced by Martin Lanig.
  • Karim Matmour, on the other hand, returns from suspension to replace Olivier Occean up front.


  • Düsseldorf have done well in the last few days, with four points from two matches against Hamburg and Dortmund. They still have injury problems, especially in defence, but the reserve players have been taking their chances thus far.
  • Frankfurt lost their last home game against Mainz and two of their most important players are now suspended. It remains to be seen, if they can replace them adequately and regain confidence away from home.
  • Expect this to be a close game from the start. Both teams have important players missing.
