Team News: Augsburg
Niklas Dorsch (Metatarsal Fracture), Lasse Günther (Hamstring Injury), Rubén Vargas (Muscle Injury), Noah Joel Sarenren Bazee (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Tobias Strobl (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Lukas Petkov (Muscle Injury) and Reece Oxford (Knee Surgery) will not be taking part for Augsburg manager Enrico Maaßen.

Team News: Freiburg
Freiburg manager Christian Streich has to currently contend with reduced team options. Lucas Höler (Metatarsal Fracture) and Kevin Schade (Abdominal Strain) are those who can’t be considered.
We’re of the thinking that Freiburg might utilise a 4-2-3-1 system with a starting lineup of Mark Flekken, Kilian Sildillia, Philipp Lienhart, Matthias Ginter, Christian Guenter, Maximilian Eggestein, Nicolas Hoefler, Roland Sallai, Woo-Yeong Jeong, Vincenzo Grifo and Nils Petersen.
We’re thinking that Augsburg will have a tough ask to find the net against this Freiburg outfit who we reckon should manage to score & go ahead.
We’re therefore seeing a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 victory for Freiburg at the end of the match.
