Team News: Erzgebirge Aue
Malcolm Cacutalua (Knee Problems), Ognjen Gnjatic (Torn Ankle Ligament), Philipp Riese (Muscular hairline crack) and Florian Ballas (Knee Problems) won’t be available for Erzgebirge Aue .
Team News: Hamburg
Hamburg boss Tim Walter has multiple availability issues to deal with. Josha Vagnoman (torn tendon), Maximilian Rohr (Muscle Injury), Tom Mickel (Acromioclavicular Separation) and Stephan Ambrosius (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not able to play.
In our view, Erzgebirge Aue have the ability to breach the defence of this Hamburg side, but one goal might not quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We therefore reckon that it will be a very close game with a 1-2 advantage for Hamburg at the end of the 90 minutes. We are expecting it to be pretty even.
