St. Pauli :
With four points from two games, the start of the FC St. Pauli has made hope for a successful season, which then went very changeable and last but not very pleasing. First, a 1: 2 at SC Paderborn meant the early end in the DFB Cup and then changed in the episode four wins and three draws, so that after nine matchdays by 16 points were recorded. Since then, the brown-whites have not retracted a victory. First came against 1. FC Kaiserslautern, SV Sandhausen and Erzgebirge Aue still three 1-1 draw in a row and also on a 0: 1 at 1. FC Union Berlin followed with the 2: 2 against SSV Jahn Regensburg a draw. Most recently, however, the Kiez kickers at SpVgg Greuther Fürth (0: 4) and Arminia Bielefeld (0: 5) received two hearty away claps, which gave rise to a crisis mood.
Coach Olaf Janßen, who is under a lot of pressure and should definitely score points with regard to his workplace until Christmas, must continue to do without the long-term injured Philipp Ziereis, Marc Hornschuh and Ryo Miyaichi. In addition, Clemens Schoppenhauer and Richard Neudecker are probably the alternatives. Bernd Nehrig is back after his suspension.
Probable lineup: Himmelmann – Dudziak, Sobiech, Avevor, Buballa – Flum, Nehrig – Sobota, Bayman, Cenk Sahin – Bouhaddouz
The MSV Duisburg has made a mixed start with four points from the first four games and the 1: 2 in the DFB Cup against 1. FC Nuremberg and also then with four more points from this time even five encounters not overpotted. With a change in direction to more defensive, things went up significantly afterwards. Against Eintracht Braunschweig (0-0), 1. FC Kaiserslautern (1-0), 1. FC Union Berlin (1-1), SV Sandhausen (1-0) and Erzgebirge Aue (3-0) the zebras remained unbeaten five times in a row and with the bagged eleven points left the threatened zone. A 0: 4 at the SSV Jahn Regensburg was then a setback, but quickly overcome and was strongly answered by a 2-0 home win against SpVgg Greuther Fürth.
Coach Ilia Gruev has to rebuild his well-rehearsed tribe due to the failure of Moritz Stoppelkamp (ligament injury). Ahmet Engin should start for that. Andreas Wiegel and Zlatko Janjic meanwhile continue to fall out.
Probable lineup: Flekken – Hajri, Bomheuer, Nauber, Wolze – Fröde, Schnellhardt – Oliveira Souza, Engin – Tashchy, Iljutcenko
